Glad to hear Monty and the gang have successfully returned to Cloggyland. Sounds like a world war 2 movie.

I use my name. I find it easier to keep up with the plot that way.

I thought Sluggie was out cruising again, but didn't like to assume.

I have just enjoyed a complimentary breakfast in first class. How excited am I. I want to keep telling the train staff that I'm not a regular poshy. Ticket price was the same as a regular seat. Sadly back to normal on the return leg so making the most of the leatherette seat and extra leg room.

Happy Tuesday. May the fog clear to let the sun shine in and free the freckles

Fab foties - looks like a lovely day

wooo hooo for weekend runners, riders and swimblers. 

Where's Sluggie off to again? 

Can't remember much else but little horse boxes, bhangra beats and dancing dogs.

We had a quiet weekend. Stayed overnight in the cabin having drunk rather too much on Saturday - hence my intention of early morning run through the woods turned into sitting quietly for the morning drinking tea.

Off to Northampton - must remember I'm not on the train but driving

Happy brand new week full of yet unclaimed adventure and excitement - claim away my friends, claim away

Morning all


Daffers - the trains I use are not so much wine and chocolates, more Stella and a packet of crisps first thing in the morning. Big respect for your eventful 20 miles - I hate to think what adding 6 will bring - UFOs and crop circles?

Hope the bad back brigade are more bendy today.

JFF - hope you're feeling less uppy downy too - when you felt like you had been hit by a hammer are you sure someone didn't contact  you with a blunt instrument? Would be the obvious explanation.

Glad to hear DG is on the mend and that chemo should return him to full healthy greyhound status. 

Told boss over the phone. I think her gob was quite smacked. Feel quite relieved as I'm not good with secrets, though we need to decide when and how to tell managers as still have some time before I can ride off into the sunset. Have to say though that this week hasn't been my most productive. The weekend may start a little early in the midlands.

Happy Friday one and all, may the TOB pause in just the right place to give Noggs a great view, may 5 o'clock come quickly then the following 50 or so hours linger in a sultry fashion over a chilled glass of wine with good friends and the family members you're still talking to

Can't allow you all to have a competition to guess what I'll be doing as your suggestions will be far more exciting, then I'll regret the job I've just accepted. In many ways, a very similar job - covering the South of the country leading on quality for a company which provides specialist education - provision for children on the autistic spectrum, with behavioural difficulties or with health or mental health issues. So I shall still be travelling loads, but being paid quite a bit more to do so and hopefully not getting dragged into a whole load of operational stuff like I am now. Starting in January so 3 months of counting down - just need to tell the boss this morning- eeeeek.

Nice barnets Noggy and Sluggy.

How's the DG doing these days. Has his patchwork all joined up properly yet? Has he got a bit of crochet keeping his elbow together?

Larry - hope the back eases off soon

20 miles Daffers - thud. I would say 'enjoy' but every time I think of it I start laughing, and not in a kindly way 

Happy Thursday - I hope it's black bin day and not green, because that's the one sitting out on the pavement waiting for a bit of action

Sorry - nothing as grand as re-uniting the Kingdom. If Scotland does go, will we be known as the K, maybe like great Britain we could be Special K?

My secret endeavour was that I went for an interview before work yesterday. I'm not feeling the love so not confident that I'll get the call I'm hoping for. 

((((Tubbs)))) hope the peepers are keepers.

A grammar school Mathschick - is that where they still teach spelling and punctuation?

I have forgotten everything else- sorry


Happy haircut day

I am on a train.

Interesting to see so many WAISTers have been falling over. I always knew you were unbalanced, but perhaps not in that way!?

FP your run sounds super fantastic and much more than many of us could accomplish at the moment. This week was to be another new start for me, only I haven't yet.

Meant also to congratulate those of you with anniversaries - either of the relationship type or the achievement type. It was very remiss of me. I have slapped myself with a wet fish in the hope that it won't happen again.

You know when you want to ask for vibes for something, but don't want to jinx your plans by revealing what it is, well that today please.

Private schools are scary places Mathschick - you'll need to watch Educating the East End to keep in touch with what a real strop looks like!

Well, happy Tuesday. May the fog lift and bring a day of sunshiny hope and happiness.

Morning all


It's best not to go to work drunk Coco

Happy belateds Noggy and XB - Hope it was splendiferous. Where is XB these days - has he made real friends or something?

FP - wooo hooo on the GNR - did you come 1 millionth? Did your training partner let you beat them? Is there any conspiracy attached to your PB?

That's quite a patio you have there Podds. Did MS survive the visit?

We went to Londinium for the weekend - it was rather jolly. We spent quite a lot of money. I have a pair of suede Chelsea boots - I'm so this season. Lets just hope it doesn't rain then. What are the chances?

Hope you can restock your freezer Yums. Will your insurance let you claim or isn't it worth it? We had the same a year or so ago, but seeing as OH turned the leccy off we didn't bother asking Churchill to compensate for a freezer full of discounted out of date Tesco bargains gone to mush.

Well it's a brand new week, all excited and naive - shall we try and convince it to be full of fun and reward?

When are we leaving? Should I start practicing my ping pong skills?

Goodly morning

Hoorah and falderee - it is Friday, and the weekend beckons.

Noggs - your holiday sounds fab - the fashion hotel? - how very Versace.

I'm liking the perky Porky and her vet avoidance.


FC2 is being moved from the placement in Bristol as they have realised it isn't suitable. Hopefully she will find a family near her friends and Mum and can go back to her school for year 11.

Happy visiting Coco.

Happy Friday everyone - get the wine cooling and the olives marinating (or the onions pickling if you're common)
