TT - better late than never. I hope he gets help soon. Poor guy living with a tough situation.
JG - sorry to hear about your mum. I hope she is better and home soon.
Kinsey - hope the lurgy passes.
TB - I have lots of respect for anyone who manages a PhD.
Hoggle - I was actually thinking about you today as I was feeling a little sad at the thought of going back to work in a few weeks, and i didnt feel like this the first time round. There are plenty of reasons but i think a big one is that the first time, I sometimes felt a little lonely with just a baby but with 3 of us (my daughter does 3 full days in nursery so its not like i have them all the time), its more fun.
I ate and drank far too much rubbish at the weekend and have been wanting to carry it on today, arghh. I fall off the wagon so easily. I haven't been too bad today so hopefully I wont look at every shop with a watering mouth, thinking about biscuits/crisps/anything bad. A few days is fine, but i cant let it go on and on as I have a half marathon in a few weeks. My arse wobbles enough at this weight! Whilst out cycling on Thursday, I was called a 'big arsed lady' by some fat twat in a car. Yes, it's true but he was a heart attack waiting to happen! Cheek!
JG - good running but about your mum. It's a tough situation and its bound to cause tensions between family members. I guess all you can do is try and be tolerant with each other. Not easy though.
Caro - hope you the fog is starting to clear for you. Hopefully the taste buds will be back for Dec when you really need them to be ok and you can indulge in everything.
Still waiting to find out if the bank will loan us enough money to keep the flat and still buy the house. The lady who offered on our flat is probably getting annoyed by our evasiveness by now (she offered on Monday). We are both now really set on trying to keep the flat so i hope it works out.
8.5 mile run yesterday. Just over 2 weeks of mat leave left and then its back to work. I am hoping that i can get some more runs in when back at work as its tough now, although i do get every thursday to myself and i do a long bike ride. I will miss that.
I have used the first (3 runs a week) plan before but wanted to put in 4 runs a week. Does anyone have a plan I can use? I cant do more than 4x per week as I need to still do 1 swim and at least 1 cycle per week as I have a 70.3 in June next year, which is 12 weeks after Brighton marathon.
Hoggle, how old is M again? The difference between mine was just over 3 years. Someone told me to give the older one jobs or a job to help with the baby to make them feel important. My baby is now 8 months old and I imagine that Georgia can't remember or imagine life without him. It's so cute to see them giggling together (I'll enjoy this as I know they'll be fighting in a few years time!).
Sonya - you are a mentalist (in the nicest possible way!). 4!!!!! If you are really thinking about it, best get saving for a mini bus
I am still pondering one of those new coils as I am rubbish at remembering the pill and defo dont want another. Hubby could have the snip but I think he is hedging his bets in case we split and wants a family with someone else. I joke but there is some truth there
