Quiet weekend in here. 

Had a good weekend and a minor miracle occurred - I went for a run with a friend. Short and involved walking but another come back - must be the 25th of the year?

Off to Birmingham for a conference and an overnight of forced socialising - must pretend to be interested and interesting!

Happy rather damp new week. Hope it brings excitement and opportunity for you

Daffers - don't do it!!!

Oh it's too late

I have no idea about it anyway. I gave blood years ago and haven't run since - like to err on the side of caution. Keep meaning to go back and offer again - I gave blood for years then they said I was too skinny and wouldn't let me. Middle aged spread has resolved that issue!

OH has gone to a knitting shop with a mate. I decided not to go. I despair - our house is already full of part completed crochet and knitting projects. She only does baby stuff  as she can't commit to long projects (or little ones it would appear!) We are constantly on the lookout for poor unsuspecting relatives, friends, neighbours, strangers etc with babies to inflict random knitted garments on. 

I on the other hand am trying to get the printer to work. Bought cheap cartridges off the internet - now regretting that decision. I'm an hour in already and I am covered in shades of tight wad git. Don't know why even - it's a work printer - I've probably invalidated the warranty and still need to print 300 pages for a conference I'm doing on Monday -aaaarrrrggghhhh.

Welcome back Keiran - hope the training goes well

Right I've switched everything off, left it for 15 minutes and am about to go back - what's the betting???

Happy October weekend - seasons of mists and mellow fruitfulness and Strictly

Podds - didn't realise you were 60. You don't even look 55

Did I miss a Poddilicious event ?? Happy belateds - hope it was a fun one

M.elds - you doing another marafun then?  How exciting

((((Spence and family)))

Hope Chuggy made it back to whichever country she wasn't in when she began her journey.

Don't get ads on this laptop, but do on my work one - maybe I should stop working?

I believe it's Friday with a weekend on the horizon - what larks. Hope the sun shines on you and yours until at least wine o'clock

(((((Spence, FIL and family))))

((((Mother of Meldy)))) Sounds like Scrumps had a great life

~~~~~~Daffers~~~~~ try not to explode with anticipation before next Friday!

Happy driving Chuggy - have you broken into your packed lunch yet????

Why is it 4am is a regular wake up time? - if I get into a pattern of waking it often seems to be 4 am. Hope you managed to sleep through farty pants.

I am working from home today - how exciting. As FC is now at college full time this means that she has a day off on a Wednesday and OH is off to see her Mum so I am also teenager rustling. 

Happy Wednesday. Hope the sun shined on you and yours today

Curiouser and curiouser

I posted last night - honest I did. The virtual reality monster must have eaten it.

Not repeating myself but yay, ahhh, oooh, wow and stuff like that for the weekend stuff you did or didn't manage to do.

Yay Daffers - couldn't believe they'd overlook you. Fingers crossed and full on vibes a go go.

We had a challenging  weekend. FC's big decision and change lasted 24 hours and then it all went back to where it was before. I like to hope though that having managed it once she may have the sense to do it again at some point. OH had the lurgy and I had to be sympathetic and I had work to do - all in all quite glad when Monday came round!

The sun is shining and summer seems to be attempting a last hoorah. Hope the sun shines on you and yours - happy Tuesday

(((((HWMBT and Dragon)))) and same to (((((Spencie's lot))))))

Yay for kitchen surfaces, iced Christmas cakes in mid September, plans for get togethers and frivolities

~~~~~~Daffers~~~~ hope you get some news on the interview soon

Giant leap forward with FC but it's one of those out of the frying pan and straight into the fire things. Also how permanent the decision is, remains to be seen. How is it after a night of drama and trauma, the teenager has a good night's sleep and I am up half the night mulling everything over and trying to work all the angles!!!???

However it does appear to be the weekend soon - hoo-jolly-rah 

Hope you have a good one

Morning all

((((Gran Gran)))))

~~~~~~Mickey~~~~~ You bought him a very good 5+ years!

Hoorah for completing kitchens, working lamps, getting back to plodding, homeless informants

I have survived Devon and the lurgy and found myself in a pub with rooms in Surrey last night which is apparently owned by Chris Evans. No celebrities present, but plenty of photos which kind of gave the game away.

I get to go home tonight - apparently I am very giving - OH has come down with the germbilies.

Happy Thursday one and all

Sorry rushing through as off for a week of work Exeter, Tavistock, Godalming - with car. Warning light no longer - still none the wiser but a few pounds lighter in the wallet region.

Happy big belateds Farty Pants - how was the curry?

((((Spence FIL))))

Yay Pippette, Podds, Spence and anyone I've missed for sporting, walking or weekend endeavours.

I have the lurgy and am not best pleased - happy Monday indeed!

What did you get in the JW goody bag then Spence and Farty?

I broke OH's car yesterday. On the M42 some warning lights came on. Orange lighted picture appeared which seemed to indicate a mountain range or a graph of the recent fluctuations in the exchange rate and a poor map of Europe or an engine. On looking at the manual still none the wiser it told me to get thee to a main dealership and leave my life savings. This morning got up at silly o clock and handed car over. Much sharp intaking of breath. We may get it back at some point later this week. As some form of cruel payback OH has taken my car hostage.  I now have to negotiate a journey to a place with no station by virtue of transportation which is 'public' even though it was privatised over a decade ago. Deep joy. 

Happy moving gently towards the second part of the week.
