CM - Nope cant be mozzies here.... Defo not.... Not in wales..... No more new spots and old ones are less itchy thank goodness!
Hoggle - boo to working over the weekend, i had to go in briefly as i had offered to help at some training but was in and back home after 2 hours. It is so much easier when kids can sort their own squabbles! Squash debate still ongoing- they are going to contact catering dept and are sending squash as normal with a threat to go berserk if ANYONE touches it!
Shall i ask again if the school should be encouraging all the kids to bring cakes on their bdays (i hated Tom being left out because he was allergic to eggs and the cakes are covered in sweets which i had asked the kids not to be given) ?
Brookie - are you flying to Berlin? Hope you keep well this week, nothing worse than doing the training but catching a bug in the days before.
drove to aberystwyth and joined a tri swim as a practice for next week. Hubby kept up with the leaders and i was joint last.... Gah!
Bloody hope it isnt bed bugs! Our friends were itching their 'spots' in the car home so we both showered as soon as we got in In case it was something in the air or on us.
Kinsey - i agree with you, we give the boys juice or j20 as a treat. The arguements were so funny - started saying they only give sugar free squash then as aspartime was mentioned all saying noooooo they wouldnt give that rubbish only proper squash... Oh and teachers are there just to teach not to dictate! Last i looked they were wondering if frozen squash would smell the same and whether they could sneak it through...... Hahaha
Ok so not run this week as legs still tired from the mara but thought the bike would be fine. Did 30 miles but it took 2 hours of serious effort. Is it possible to build from this base up to an IM next year?
Glad your strap appears to help BS, would you need to wear it every time or would you be able to wean yourself back off?
Hope you are enjoying the jolly Cake, you will need to do some serious reparation without any hint of moaning now!
Buttercup - at least you did something, it will settle though?
Quiet today, hope you are feeling a bit better Caro, must be bloody awful every time but it will be over soon xxxx
Pip no idea on hillyness of bournemouth but the benefit of doing the last one will still be in your legs now so should be able to scrape a minute off.
heated debate on our local facebook about the school being told not to offer anything but milk or water to pupils. Personally i am thrilled as hated my boys being the only ones not drinking milkshake at breakfast club but other parents are FURIOUS!
30 mile bike in 2 hours this morning, legs still felt tired from the mara last weekend but want to start building up if i am going to attempt the ironman next summer.
ADVICE WANTED - since coming back from Ypres me and hubby have red spots (like bites) which are really itchy but mine didnt come up until after we got home so could they be mozzy bites or not? (And CM dont go suggesting they are UK Mozzys as we all know they dont exist.. )
Lastly - took boys to see Echo to Earth at the cinema - we fab so thought I'd recommend as i hadnt even heard of it. Not suitable for tiny weenies but Archie at 5yrs loved it!
