Glad to hear that HL is predicted to make a full recovery.
Well PRd Onesie! That's a great start and gives you a target to beat.
A WAISTerfest sounds like a very good idea.
MS is still coughing but feeling a bit better in himself, he's w*rking today. We went to a charity quiz on Friday (with bff, her hubby and some other friends of theirs), we came in 3rd out of about 20 tables - and MS won the 'heads or tails' game and pocketed £25!
Podds - dogs! Well done to you and your mentees. When will they get to know their results?
(((Tubs and Bram)))
(((TT and Snaily))) I think it sounds a good idea to stipulate contact only via sols - unless that would push the bill up to - even more - astronomical levels
DL, glad you enjoyed the SCD show, I love the TV prog and have always wondered whether the roadshow is any good. Also glad to hear that OH and FC6 got on well, that's a very good start.
Meldy, we had a 'Beko' washing machine put in when the kitchen was done, our builder recommended it as he has one of the same make. It has some good programs and we are pleased with it - but it is early days yet.
NR, I absolutely agree with Yummity (I have a professional background but not the personal experience of the 'Big C'), weighing once a week is more than enough. Even without that, you will know if clothes are getting loose etc.
(((Pipps))) I hope the toof is feeling better today.
Coco, I think you are wise to look at building long-term good habits rather than looking for short-term gains - in weight loss as with running.
Having started to improve, MS was really unwell again yesterday. He saw the GP last evening and is now on a course of steroids for an exacerbation of his asthma. I'm feeling quite a lot better and even , almost, have a voice. I skipped aquagym but managed to take SM shopping. We are supposed to be out at a quiz this evening, don't think MS will make it though
I tried to put a 'smiley' in the para above and now something very strange has happened to the post! I don't know whether it will disappear when it is posted...
(((TT, Snaily and Snail's bank balance))) Hope he's more like himself when you pick him up this evening.
When I see how dependent some of you guys are on your garmins, it makes me glad I never had one! We did buy one to share but that was right at the end of my running 'career' so I didn't really use it.
~~~ DL, OH and FC6 ~~~ as long as she settles well, it will be good all-round to get some stability. It's so good that kids stay in care for longer, I seem to recall that used to stop at 16?
Chuggy, it's either leaf clearing or weeding, isn't it? I think that would make me dread going back down to France!
Coco, don't beat yourself up about the weight gain, you've had a lot to contend with.
(((Tubs))) it's only natural to be anxious, especially when you have had so much done to your peepers. Is this the 'relaxing' procedure that you are waiting for?
I'm afraid that I'm struggling to remember what anyone else has said, so I'll take the easy way out and second Chuggy's comments!
Did anyone see Paul O'Grady with the orphan animals last night? The baby rhino made me think of Tubs, Thandie and Thandybaby P O'G seems to really care about the animals,he comes across as a good guy.
We currently have a workman here doing some electrical stuff for us. He needs access to the bedroom so I have to be 'up' and he's making lots of noise. We did go out and do a sluggie, but I wasn't up to staying out for long. I just wanno go to bed!
Glad you arrived safely Chuggy, I bet Mr C was glad of a meal without having to go out and shop first! How lovely to be given a truffle
It doesn't seem to be as cold here as many of you are experiencing. Of course, we expect that here on the south coast but I think we might also be benefiting from the cavity wall insulation that was done a year or 2 ago. Mind you, I have barely put my nose outside the door since Saturday, so that might explain things too!
Noggy, how is Penny doing? I do hope the knee is not painful at rest, at least.
Snaily, as Spence said, you are doing really well with your running at the moment.I do hope that warm shower wasn't as painful as you feared.
MS is feeling considerably better and now has'cabin fever', he's driving me mad cos I just want to be left in peace. He's now gone out to look at beds, so that will keep him out of my hair for a while . I am coughing and voiceless.
Ah yes, the annual Dirty Dyke weekend lived up to expectations I see!
Snaily, it sounds as if you were lucky not to get away without any damage. I hope the rest of the day goes smoothly.
Great PB Spence, well done!
NR, you is well speedy.
Meldy, I trust you bit the hand off the person who offered you the chance to see Cirque du Soleil? I certainly would have!
Coco, it's good that your friend's hubby is supportive. MS has no idea what to do when my mood is low! I love to see mums enjoying their babe's early months, it is something I missed out on.
It is bright and sunny today but still a touch cool. I have skipped both aquagym and my morning with bff and will probably not sing tonight either. Not because I feel terribly poorly (I'm 'off colour' rather than 'ill') but, seeing how unwell MS has been, I don't want to give this to anyone else.
