Ooh it's just like the old days - I am on a train.


Happy flat hunting Sluggie - thought of you last night. We went to a regularish quiz night which we go to when I'm home - so, not often, and we won! Hoorah and falderee. ??20 drinks voucher behind the bar for our next visit. Given that we have spent vat amounts on food and drink on previous occasions and will no doubt do so again, I feel it was more for the glory than any material gain!

Farty - I have an entry into the Tissington half I'm willing to sell you! If you wait until the week before I may well be begging people to take it off my hands.

Happy Bake Off semi final day. May your cakes rise and your jellies set.

Morning all

Anyone want a place at the Tissington half marathon???????? I may be able to help! 

Ooh Sluggie - hope the reprogramming works for you - you sound very Terminator - having never seen Terminator this sounds about right?!

Differs - did they headhunt you for academia or bohemia? How very exciting!

I still haven't been to the doctor, I still have a cough, now I feel I may be getting a cold. Half term next week - if I'm not dead I'll go and see the quack then or OH may well be throwing me out.

FC doing well - had a few issues at the hairdresser where she works so that may not last, but college going well, and she still plans to stay with us. She will be 18 in January - how time flies!

Right better get to the training plan - about 4 weeks researching plans, another 4 thinking about which one to go for, a couple of weeks to get it written out - OK - no need to worry just yet then......

Happy Tuesday - hope the sun comes out and shines on you

Forward? Foresee - so much so that I have lost the ability to spell

Also Podds -  Tissington is in Derbyshire - close enough to home to not have an excuse!

And that I can forward trouble!!!

Morning all

Sounds like a super walk Dragon, as does flapjacks in the woods. Is that a new play or something?

I am sad to think that people have felt bullied on this thread. If l have been responsible for anyone feeling any less than brilliant, unique and valued then I sincerely apologise. I know my sense of humour may be misinterpreted, especially online, but I have the greatest respect for everyone who comes in here, for however long it suits their life. I do miss a number of people who have been regular posters in the past, but change is part of life. If I could cope with more I might go on Facebook but it's s a little too big for me! 

I seem to have entered the Tissington trail half marathon next October. I have friends who suggested it as a way back into running. Well I have a year to train - what are the chances!?

Happy new week full of all sorts of potential sparkle and joy - hope something good comes your way

I am not on @rsebook. I am at Newport Pagnell Services with my ever present cough. I am thinking of taking up smoking to make it worth while.

Apple Brown Betty for me please. Failing that I'll settle for a crumble but none of this cinnamon or spice nonsense thank you!

I was booked into a basement studio flat in London last night with reviews suggesting I should leave my cat at home if I had intentions of swinging it. When I went to check in they upgraded me to a 3 bed apartment with terrace and a complimentary bottle of wine and a Terry's chocolate orange as a welcome gift. What larks. Shame I didn't get in until 10pm and had to leave at 7.30 this morning!

Right. Back to the M1. What larks.

Happy GBBO day.

S'quiet in here.

Daffs is scary, Podds is assertive, revenge of the body snatchers??

Fear not some things remain the same. I am not at home and I have a cold still!

Happy new week

Awww Podds - you is all growed up and assertive and stuff - yay to 51 being the new 50.

Be careful though - the next stage is going batty like the Dragon

What with Farty having an elderly son, it appears we're all getting a little older!

(((Yums and Sluggy and elderly parents)))

It's Friday - I still have a fantastic cough - that's two weeks of good excuse not to run. Might need to find something else for next week!

Happy Friday

Do like how you have taken UtB and turned him into a Tub there Dragon!! Anyhow - look after those knees - they're useful things to have.

Dragon - sounds like you are gradually walking the world - sounds fun.

(((MC and Podds))) Stay strong - it must nearly be half term!!! 

Cough still well and truly established. I did enjoy FC's discovery of the snooze button on her new loud alarm cock which started at 5.45 am. and continued until  6.30 when she finally dragged herself vertical. Combined with my restless night I am wide awake and functioning in what feels like some zombie fantasy.

But yay, it's Wednesday - happy GBBO day

I thought I had a rich and varied life, then you tell me about a common, popular animal that inhabits our parts - never heard of a degu - not even convinced you're all telling the truth. Blur of a kitten would obviously like rodent company - another dead one delivered whilst I was away - OH described it as a rat but in telling the story, the size indicated hinted at something rather more mousey.

No running in these parts. Cough still proving tenacious. Ended up in the spare room last night propped up on piles of pillows.

Winter chill seems to be upon us.

Happy sparkly new week - hope it brings something cute and canine in the Welsh bits!
