Evening all 

Yay Dragon Lady. Three hills, three cheers!

Wooo hooo Far Too Fast. Do you get an extra shiny medal or a certificate or something?? 

Do weevils wobble or is that just weebles?

I have been to Welsh Wales. I should have gone to Swindon but due to the issue with the fan and the hitting of it with a manure like compound I have been rerouted. Who knows what Tuesday will bring!?!?!

Decentish weekend. Went to see La La Land which I liked. Managed 2 runs which means I have started week 4 of the plan - what larks. I'll soon have done more runs in one month than I managed in the whole of last year!

Happy new week - hope it brings a lottery win or two

Did Tom struggle with rabbity looking dogs perchance? Understandable really.

OH is doing a social work degree. This was her first exam on the law. She is now struggling with an essay. Never a dull moment here.

Having wished you all a happy hug of a Thursday I have been punished for stating that I rather enjoyed my job. Rather than a hug I received a fan which was hit rather resoundingly by a mess which will take rather a lot of work and stress. That'll learn me for trying to be positive! 

Hope the weekend brings you something nice

That's nothing M.eldy. I was at an Indian restaurant the other week and there was a table full of Kingfishers.

boom tish

Get you Sluggie - you've gone all cultural. It'll be the opera next!

(((Podds))) - (((Tom))) - ((((school))) - not sure who I should feel most sorry for! 

Hope you are soon able to get someone to sort your lower log Chuggy - maybe you have a bit of dry rot?

OH passed her first exam yesterday so we went out to celebrate. Pizza Express with a 40% student discount on all food and drink. The place was full of students. I think it's students who are keeping the economy going with the loans they will never afford to pay off .

Have only been and gone out and run. It's not getting any easier.

Happy Thursday - hope it brings you a little hug of happiness when you most need it

Podds. I had the same problem. I solved it by selling it and getting one that didn't have a pond in the boot.

Parental choice in schooling - don't get me and my communist views started!!

Gotta run - but not in an actual running sort of way. More a jump in a car and set the sat nav to another working day way.

Happy wonderful Wednesday. Let's hope it has a small thrill waiting for you somewhere.

3.04 for a muddy 15 Yums??? Should have tried harder!

Hope meditation helps or bird's extra lessons work quickly.

((((Podds))) it sounds like a barrel of laughs round yours at the moment.

(((((over stressed, over worked, returning to shifts, January bluesers)))) Having spent an evening with a couple of ex colleagues, one who has retired and one who is on the verge, I have realised I am really lucky that I enjoy working. Early mornings, I could do without, but generally, wouldn't want to stop at the moment.

Glad you know your left from right Chuggy, hope the scan confirms you need a physio rather than amputation.

Week 3 of running plan started on a treadmill in a hotel gym yesterday. The hotel gym was a very small, hot room with about 4 bits of gym equipment. Luckily one of those was a clunky treadmill. It makes me remember how much I hate running inside, but at least it meant I can tick another day off.

Managed to get tickets for Hamilton - due to go in March 2018 - not long to wait then 

Happy Tuesday. Hope it's a sparkly one

Morning all - I'm laughing at the idea of Sluggie as a wide daughter. I'm guessing that wasn't what was meant!? 

Sounds like a fun evening Chuggy - good idea to clear out!

As predicted with all the warnings I saw a little bit of ice and a lot of rain. Glad to hear those on the right didn't get blown into the sea.

I have done my third run of the week. That's two weeks running (pun intended) possibly a record!

OH was in London last night celebrating a mate's 50th - not M.eldy's I think! There seems to be a lot of it going around at the moment. So I have a quiet day to myself - how exciting.

Happy weekend - especially to the warriors who apparently get as much benefit from cramming all their exercise into a brief Sunday adventure as those who slog away at it for days

Oh no five-oh! Happy Birthday Meldy!

Ha Ha Ha Happy you're older than me. 18 again with 32 year's worth of practice - you should be able to hold your drink by now

Can you hold mine too please?

Oooh I missed the M.ely one's big birthday - many belateds - hope your journey over the hill was a smooth one and that the hangover on the other side isn't too awful!

Still wondering if Daffy got back up her hill too.

Hope you've got the supplies in for the snow later today- I'm guessing there will be a bit of sleet by the amount of news coverage there's been.

Have only been out and run again this morning - see my halo, watch it shine.

Off down South toady and catching up with some old work colleagues tonight - what a treat.

Hope your Thursdays are full of heart warming events and that your ribs are tickled rather than bruised

Indeed - that log does sound bad Chuggy!!

SM seems to be getting a little knocked around at the moment - hope the extra help makes a difference.

Is Mr P an electrician by any chance? OH is too and used to work in street lighting, so I know that lights are lamps and that LED lamp-posts are the bees knees. We have photos of street lighting from nearly every holiday we've ever been on!

Pub quiz last night - we did very well - we marked the winning team's answers!

Do you think Daffers made it back up the hill yesterday?

Very windy out there this morning - be careful out there and have a happy Wednesday
