Ello Ello

Just popping in to say toddle pip. We are heading off to face incredible tail backs and extreme weather as we go camping in Kent for a week. I'm afraid I will have to maintain radio silence for the duration, so I thought I should:

(((((((~~~~~~~awwww,yay, woo hoo, eeek, ahhhhh, really???, ~~~~~~~))))))

Happy next week one and all

Morning one, morning all 

I was at a school yesterday that doesn't finish until the middle of next week. Everyone was looking a little jaded.

Podds - interesting photo. Do the people of Ramsgate usually dress this way or was it for a special occasion ?

Daffers in a gym doing body pump???? Has there been a tear in the space time continuum?

At what time can one put out of office notification on when today is the last working day for two weeks?? Too early - yes, sadly, I thought so too...

Happy nearly the weekend - does anyone have a spare ark I can borrow please?

We go camping at the weekend. The met office issues severe weather warnings. I like to think the two are not connected. Past experience tells me otherwise.

In answer to the questions about the shabin. We own a rickety old cabin thing on the edge of a wood about half an hour away from where we live. We call it the shabin as it's more like a shed than a cabin. It has a bedroom, kitchen, sitting area, wind powered electricity but no running water or loo. There's a toilet block and water taps nearby - like camping. We bought it with friends last year and it's a great place to get away from it all as no TV, phone signal etc. However, since FC has arrived we have really been unable to use it. So I took the opportunity for a night in the woods toasting marshmallows over an open fire and watching the stars. It was very restorative! Well, that and the half bottle of wine I consumed!

Happy holidays Sluggy - I'm expecting a postcard and a tacky souvenir

Watch out Cornwall  - the WAISTers are coming.....

I however am off to Ironbridge for a meeting today - what larks

Happy Wednesday one and all - hope it's a jolly one

I should hope there's no sin shining round your parts Daffers, and if there is, it's not always best to share!

Hello Amandax - want to stop injuries? stop running! Works for me. No need to thank me.

Up and at em people. There's a brand new Tuesday waiting to see what you're going to do with it.

I am venturing to Spenceland - I've had my injections

Evening all

Some of us work in schools and only get 25 days' leave a year - Isn't that right Podds!

((((sluggy and MS))))) sounds very frustrating

~~~~~~healing houndies and other animals~~~~~

OH and FC are away for 2 nights. I had a night in the Shabin (cross between a shed and a cabin) in the woods last night. It was very relaxing but a little bit spooky on my own. Back home tonight. Have music on and reading - bliss.

Off to Birmingham for a meeting tomorrow - that's Spence country isn't it???? eeek

Happy new week - hope the sin shines in a British summer kind of way - not in a far too hot to move Chuggy kind of way. Need to warn you the good weather will be ending soon - we go camping on 27th! Enjoy it whilst you can!

Good day to you kindly WAISters.

(((((Poorly pooches, hosses and possibly, even people)))))

(((Daffy - hope you can now touch your toes)))))

In relation to your questions Chuggy 1) no idea 2) not a clue 3) noticing a pattern yet? nope, nada, nothing-  sorry

Well today, whilst we were at the dentist FC received a text to say the fast has ended and Eid ul Fitr has arrived. Hoorah and falderee. We have had lunch together, with newly polished teeth, and tonight we will go out to the local Turkish restaurant and eat at a reasonable time. We seem to have turned a bit of a corner (for a while anyway) she has decided she will stay with us until she is 18 whilst getting engaged and planning her wedding for the following day. She is going on the national citizenship programme and she hasn't given us the silent mardy shut down treatment for three days. Happy Eid indeed!!!!

I went for another of those run things this morning. I'm not really sure what all the fuss is about. Spence - could you send me some of your endorphins please?

Happy very nearly the weekend. Happy Eid.

What a great photo Podds - he would make a fabulous poster boy.

Mixed news Sluggy but some good stuff in there which should soften the not so good

OH and FC enjoyed their zoo visit. Sadly I remain otterly disappointed

I seem to be losing letters I'll leave the l and s here for safe keeping

Also - body pump ??? I always have images of people with a bicycle pump inflating each other to look like the michelin man. I'm guessing that's not actually what happens

((((Snaily, Daffers, SM, Mr Pippi, and any other painful, overworked, tired, sad or needy WAISters))))))

Bit grey and drizzly here this morning. OH and FC are off to the zoo today. I wonder if they'll be let back out? I've asked them to bring an otter home.

I was supposed to go for a run this morning

but I didn't - I blame Chuggy for stealing al of Snaily's inspiration. It's either that or blame Spence as I seem to remember it was agreed it's all her fault.

Working from home today - things beginning to calm a little as the end of term in most of the school has arrived or approaches. 

Happy wonderful Wednesday

~~~~~~~~ bendy vibes for Daffy


Didn't realise Farty was doing the JW relay without the relay bit - plain crazy!!!

Your kindly thoughts for FC6 are sadly misplaced - we ate together - late night BBQing is the way to go!

I am in Frome. They've put out bunting. I'm guessing it's not for me.

Happy Tuesday everyone
