Morning everyone

It's stopped raining/hailing/blowing a gale/etc. Yesterday we seemed to have a year's weather in a day.

Cherry chutney? I'd give it a go - I like an apricot chutney.

I thought you lived in Birmingham Spence?!

((((Yums))) sorry you didn't get your moonlit run - cake sounds like a fair compromise

Today I am in Surrey, then head off to the new forest and I end up in Devon in Friday. What larks. Best get on the road.

Happy Wednesday

Super stuff Daffers

I love coffee, I love tea

I like the java jive and it loves me

but that's another story

(((((cold handed people)))))

We are very happy in this house at the moment. We have made links with a Turkish family down the road who have Turkish TV and everything. All is very exciting and sparkly at the moment.

Yesterday I was in Londinium, today I am in Stratford on Avon. I feel like a tourist. Why is it though, when I vista Stratford, my first thoughts aren't Shakespeare and high culture, but swim-bike transitions and the like???

Happy Tuesday one and all

You've given me plenty of shocks I didn't need Spence - an idiot proof defibrillator isn't going to solve that!

Woo hoo Spencey

Surely 100 with a break will see you easily round 112 next week (crosses fingers and smiles hopefully)

Go go go go etc JFF and XB and Daffers and Spence and anyone else that could use a go. I realise it may be a bit late but I was out plodding myself - my long run consists of 5 very slow miles at the moment, so thinking of the marathoners big time!

(((((Mike)))) hope he continues to recover

Last night I made Moussaka - what a faff - who ever would invent such a time consuming meal???? It was nice though had everyone had seconds.

Happy Sunday - there is cake making in the kitchen at the moment - I'm staying well out of it but hope to see how things are going in about half an hour!

Oooh Daffers - get you!! 

(((((Tubbs, Sluggs, Podds, Nogs and Snaily))))) though times for lots at the moment it seems.

I have returned from a two day management meeting - as an old colleague of mine used to say - it's all management wanky bollocks. It's a phrase that returned to me again and again over the past 48 hours!

Is that a weekend I see approaching over the horizon????  I'm not quite sure what to do with it as I seem to have given up drinking and taken up running again - and no, I'm not entering any races!

Happy - the sun is trying to shine and just about winning - Friday

I am very, very tired. Last night we got back at 12.30. I was woken at 4am by blur showing me a dead bird and playing chase me round the house, then I had to get up early to get to Suffolk today. Now I am back home......I did read back but can remember nothing so

((((WIN)))) wooo hooo and awwwww

Take That were fab - mainly because you let a bunch of middle aged Brummies out on a Monday night and all decorum is gone.


All I can say is - Never forget where you're coming from


it's easier to get home that way

Daffers talking tictacs? I like the lime and tangerine ones.

Podds - glad that the rain gods saw sense and allowed you a nicer bike ride than of late.

Hellllooooooo Westie - have fun in Portugal.

Congratulations on being committed Spence. I didn't think there'd be an institution that would accept you!

Did read back over the weekend and that's about the limit of my memory - think there was a lesser spotted Larry, Yums was being active, there were horsey happenings, dogs being sat and cats capering and 'friends' crazily threatening. I believe too France has a thousand or so less weeds  - well at least for the next week or so.

Interesting weekend of Muslim women's pampering session followed by prom preparation (not until end of June) - somewhat at odds with each other. Never have I seen so many high shoes, little handbags and considered the importance of up-do's and makeup

Today I am working from home as tonight we go to see Take That - how very middle aged.

Also to continue the theme of alternative reality - went for a run yesterday and today - I might need to find a running forum to join - does anyone know of one?

Happy sparkly new week - hope it brings excitement

Who are you calling a big stodgy treat JFF???!!! - sounds like a great insult

Imagine walking along the beach when Nigel Farage suddenly appears - stuff of nightmares


Today is getting more interesting still - 3 party leaders resigning in one day - what larks. Should I apply for a new job???
