Podds - hope the back has eased off a bit - at least you have a lot of sick notes to go with it!

Yay for the results MC

Oooh Pippi - a festival - how very hipster! Will the levellers be there - they seem to be at every festival!

Caught up with GBBO - so all is well with the world again

No running today. FC is off to fail her driving theory test - she really hasn't done the work needed and has gone all limp and pathetic about it - willing to give up driving entirely as it's too much effort - teenagers - aaarrggghhh

I managed to run yesterday - decided against today. Too much of a good thing and all that!

Happy yay it's Friday

Runners world or my laptop wouldn't let me post earlier.

(((((MC and family))))) tough times

Hope those involved in results day, in whatever capacity, are having a positive one.

Happy anniversary Farty pants

Didn't manage to watch GBBO last night. Had an early tea, arranged everything just so, settled on the sofa with a cup of tea, the opening credits began, then FC changed the evening's agenda. So near and yet so far! Will have to watch on catch up this afternoon.

Obviously having one of those times, as also got up and put running kit on. Delayed for a number of reasons then work intervened early and I decided to abandon any plans until lunchtime. Sitting working in my running kit - somewhat odd as I am used to having my bowler hat and brogues on for work!

Happy Thursday - hope it brings some relief

Well that was fun! Have just returned from a balloon ride. It was part of OH's 50th - not booked by me. Had to get up at 5am - perfect conditions for a flight over reservoirs and fields finished off with a small glass of champagne - oops. 

Back at work now - perfect landing but back to earth with a bump!

Sluggy - glad your assessment has happened and that you have some cunning plans in place.

Shoe shopping - aaarrggghhhh

Happy Bake Off Wednesday - yay

Orlando! High excitement indeed!

Hope the carer turned up on time and did the assessment Sluggy - hope you passed!

This run every day in August is coming together nicely now - I went on Sunday and again today. Please tell me August is nearly over. I'm thinking of embarking on Sofa September on the back of August's success.

I hear today is going to be a hot one - judging by the shade of puce I turned on my run this morning I'm predicting a scorcher - happy Tuesday

Happy birthday Yums - you must be well old by now - hope you're not too old to enjoy it!

MC - if the cat didn't catch the mice they'd be living happily outside where they belong. Instead we have a selection of live, half dead and dead specimens delivered to us on a regular basis - when we are really lucky we can have a bird, frog, rat or unidentified set of entrails. It's a cavalcade of delights.

Great photos and a nice tent Pippi. I do like tents! When we go camping I regularly indulge in a bit of tent envy!

Are those hounds out doing a bit of political campaigning? The UKIP one seems sure of his views the other one needs to decide whether to go Tory or Labour! 

They look fab!!

Happy hols Dragon .

Fantastic report Pippi. What new tent did you buy?

Becks - sounds as if you are on course for your training - don't panic. Mountain miles count double!

I managed a plodette this weekend. A long run of 4.5 miles. At this rate I should be ready for Tokyo in 4 years.

Well the week got off to a lovely start with a 1.30 am wake up call from the cat. A brief game of chase the cat and mouse - result - 1 ickle dead mouse and a not so sleepy me. 

Happy new week full of sparkle, sunshine and potential.

Morning, or should I say Bonjour?

I apologise for the weather but I went for another run this morning and so the universe is, no doubt reeling from the impossibility of it,  trying to rebalance things with rain, wind and flood. 

Oooh Yums - mystery weekend - how very exciting The fact that it involves running kit - not so much! Hope it is a de-stress weekend away from teenagers angst. We are 3 weeks in to the most exciting apprenticeship ever. Surprisingly it has ceased to be exciting and we had to drag FC from her pit this morning all sweetness and light. I never understand how all the problems in a teenager's life are the fault/cause of the adults around them!

Yay for SM's new care package - hoe it all works out for you Sluggs

Hope you have recovered form saving the academic hopes of the masses Daffers

MC - your holiday is making us all jealous!

Happy Friday everyone - hope it brings the weekend swiftly to your door
