Feeling tired this morning after the swim last night and Jasper kept trying to sleep on top of me even though I was lying on my side
In spite of that, I'm feeling fairly relaxed this morning although all best efforts at work are clearly being made to rattle my cage. Not being able to replace someone who is leaving next week is top of the irritation list.
But no, I am calm and serene and have two runs planned this week
Glad you had a great time, Sluggy. We went to the Royal Tournament a number of times when I was a kid - I loved it and was very disappointed when they basically stopped it. I particularly used to love the cannon assembling / disassembling race between Dartmouth and Portsmouth naval colleges
Pippi - hope MrP's operation goes well and he recovers quickly
I have had a good day - we went to Waitrose and I found some fabulous gluten-free mince pies and christmas cake which has made me happy. We've just polished off the mince pies now and they were truly delicious. Good by any standard.
We went for a short walk in the woods this morning and are starting to explore the area for good, off road running routes.
And I've been swimbling tonight and am back to using fins. For any relay triathlons next year, I did 16 lengths warm-up (no fins) = 400m in 9.50 so let me know if anyone might want me for the swim leg and I'll consider making myself available for the right price . Form an orderly queue please...
Aww Spence, your posts have their own unique quality that we wouldn't want to be without
Have fun with Far-Far. I assume you're both racing so good luck - hope it all goes well.
((((((Chuggs)))))) - hope things calm down soon! Perhaps look at this as a period of cross-training?
I was diagnosed with coeliac shortly before I joined you lot in here earlier this year. Most of the time it's fine and I've got used to finding gluten in all kinds of funny places (like down the back of the sofa ) and it was a relief to be able to do something about the problems I was having. But further down the line and things are so much better that occasionally I find myself thinking "I wonder if I could just have THAT and be okay" so at least this incident has served as a bit of a reminder in this regard. I'm fine today and now just really hungry as I didn't eat much yesterday.
Snaily - you ARE a great boss. Good bosses deal with the bad stuff as well as the nice. How was the work do?
Des - hope you get out there today at some point.
Melds - hope the FGO is improving. Maybe that was why he didn't want to interact with the ladies?
Last quiet weekend day before the mayhem of christmas descends on us. We have "christmas" with my family next weekend before heading off to SA the one after. So I plan to do very little today until swimbling club at 6pm.
