All things Christmas (sorry, but I'm feeling festive)

Posted: 16/10/2014 at 22:44

This year we went swimming instead (well sort of... the pool was too busy to really swim!) But my mum, sister and I have been on a family run before for christmas.

If I'm with my boyfriend's family, they're usually busy and do the a big family christmas. It does make it difficult to fit in a run, but I usually do on either on Christmas eve or Boxing day (or both).

Cutting half the field every six miles

I like the idea but looking at this years times there's no way I'd get to be a finisher. Interesting looking at the times from this year to see how far I think I'd get.

I like to think I could get to stage 2 (as a female need to do 8 miles in 1:53ish) but the course looks brutal!

Is good to stop playing now. Went to bed last night seeing swapping candies flying in front of my eyes!

After seeing this thread I got on with the quests to progress. Now up to level 80! Gotta wait 24 hours to play the next quest!

I checked my app and maybe I did it a disservice. I got to level 50 at which point I got the choice to pay 69p, invite friends or do some extra quests. Taken me a while to do the quests as you only get 1 turn a day or something like that. Maybe I just need to persist with those quests and more levels will unlock!

After a while you will reach the point where you have to either (a) pay money or (b) invite Facebook friend to play, in order to progress further with the game. This is where I stopped playing.

Other than that, game that seem random possibly are. Sometimes you need to okay over and over again til everything falls into place, and you complete the level with ease wondering what you did differently from last time!

How long til he beats me?

I know your pain! Did a relay (each leg about 3.5k) with my non running boyfriend. I'd been running years whereas he'd done no training and warmed up by smoking a cigarette! I ran as hard as I could and only just beat his time . It's so annoying - he's not interested in running but if he did even a small amount if training he'd easily beat me!

Things you want to say but can't

Dear person I vaguely know, and I follow onTwitter.
You were at a wedding. You got asked by ' old people' not to use inappropriate language. You the. Went to twitter to post your outrage.

Unlike your other friends (who I don't know) who've posted "I hope you told them to f- off" my thoughts are - have you considered maybe your language was inappropriate. Especially as you were there as guests of the bride and groom, and the people you offended were most likely their relatives. I hope you said that you were sorry and toned your language down a bit.

Also I don't think it's that weird for you to be asked not to put pictures on social media.

What came first?

I always think egg. The first egg was laid by something that was almost-a-chicken-but-not-quite-a -chicken. It then hatched and was the first chicken. (off to check Wikipedia now to see what they said!)

Be honest, kids just don't want to have the oldest parent on the school yard. Also, when you have kids later they are unlikely to have the joy of grandparents.

I would say early 30s is a sweet spot for having kids.


When I was a child I was proud to have a mum who was a bit younger than my friend's mums. Now it seems a strange thing to be proud of but I the time I was! I'm now 33 and keep mentally pushing back the age I'd like to have kids by. Now I'm thinking 40 is my limit. This may change as I approach 40! I hope my (imaginary potential) children won't mind having older parents. Possibly I was only proud of my young mum because she was young, and had she been older I'd never have thought about it!
