long post swallowed - I blame Spence

In summary - wooooo hooooo to the massess

Big respect to Podds - pulling out 3/4 way through such a humungous undertaking requires guts and strength

other interested stuff about returning to the fold, colds, coils, relays, socks and heat.

I am in Devon - again. I have wine.

Happy hot new week

Evening all

woooo hoooo SB - how very super and pride making. Great to have on your CV at this stage of a career.

MacDonalds are everywhere now M..eldy. Nothing gourmet about a burger

When should I start the vibe and pom pom machine?

I have been in Shropshire, I am now in Shepperton, I will be in Cobham, then I have to aim near Glastobury on Friday - poor planning on my part! Especially when I'm not going to a music festival - unlike half the population.

Hey - Farty pants - your clan were the talk of radio 2 this morning. Chris Evans was going on about people with your surname. There's someone at work who may be related too. You're getting to be far too common!

Happy warm Wednesday

Where can I get some of these magic socks????? Got up late - didn't run. - oops. Darn that Spence making me feel inadequate by showing off her multiple shiny PBs and stealing all my mojo for her own evil purposes.

Ramadan is on hold - probably for a day or two more, then we will be back to it. 

You doing some short race or something soon M..eldy?

((((Podds))) and any other hard workers - I know there aren't that many of us in here 

Pippi - did I read that right - you re becoming an IT guru??? Do you have a smart watch? I only have a stupid one.

Working from home today - lots to do so best get on. 

Happy terrific Tuesday

Ello Ello

I too would blame Spence

for anything

(((Daffers))) hope the fundament fettling enables the spurtle to be accepted by the flange with less pain shortly.

Yay to the PB Spence- was it all downhill?

We have and the big O call to one of the schools I look after - and it probably will be a big oh. Fingers crossed everyone - we're going to need it!!!!!!!

Happy sparkly new one

Goodly morning

Just reporting back in to say that I am no longer a virgin. 

Survived my first Parkrun yesterday. Went with mate who is slower (just) than me and we finished together in 40 minutes. Was upset not to get a medal or a goody bag at the end. 

Hello Pixie - poor memory - tell us a bit about yourself. Slow is good.

Glad to hear your pipes are clear Chuggy

Hope the Keswick amble becomes a pleasant ramble

Think Spence might be doing the Arden 9 - have Pom Poms on in the background just in case

Happy Sundays one and all

Have fun at the zoo/hospital - interesting combination there Pippi

Never a dull moment here. FC was with Turkish family breaking the fast last night. They are lovely and supportive. Today though Ramadan is postponed by the power of the period. Poor timing really.

I appear to be  up, dressed and ready for a Purkrun - how did that happen?????

Happy weekends

(((Daffers)))) hope you're feeling a bit better this morning

FC is following Ramadan for the first time. We aren't but are obviously supporting and so it impacts on what we do. Alarm set for 2 am to ensure 'breakfast' is eaten or at least water has been drunk. We will try to avoid cooking/eating infront of her at inappropriate times - weekends will be interesting!? Then evening meal at 9.45pm. Horrible year for a first Ramadan as we are about to hit the longest day of the year. I might try a day or two to see what it's like  and to show support. 

Hoorah - it is Friday - hope the weekend arrives soon - hope you have a happy one

Evening all

((((Daffs)))) there are certain benefits to wearing sensible shoes!

Welcome back Far Too Fast - how's that washing mountain looking?

Pippi - hope you paint the town red

Yay to the M&S shoppers.

We appear to be overcoming a particularly difficult week, of much silence and truculence. We have now entered Ramadan. It will bring its own challenges methinks.

Friend is trying to persuade me to do a park run on Saturday. I am resisting.

Happy Ramadan everyone - 29 days to go!
