Oh Yums, how awful  

Whatcha studying Spence? Thought you were on holidays! (or is this stupid predictive text making a nuisance of itself again?!)

Have a jolly run anyway!  And hope Westie finds you (although for his sake it might be best if he just views you from a distance!) 

At least you'll be surrounded by sweets Yums  

I've wimped out of parkrun  Could barely move legs while in bed and when I stood up felt all achey and wrong - I know you can run as a leg loosener... but when you've done as little running as me, I think doing 5k the day after nearly 9 miles is probably not wise. 

That's what I'm telling myself anyway  

We;re off to the Lincolnshire Wolds for the day instead Keep seeing houses we'd rather like to live in, and our 'friends' keep telling us we don't want to live all the way over there (or, more likely, they can't be arsed to visit us any more if we live over there) so we're off to see for ourselves

I thought that too - not sure there's much of a market for pigs milk just yet  

Just logged into Fetch - it said 'put the kettle on, here comes Daffs' - sounds about right...

Don't all triathlons have a wet bit?


And what are you doing running 15 miles one day and doing a triathlon the next day?! I suppose this is special IronWaister training


2 hours of running and 2 hours of cleaning (!) and I'm unsurprisingly worn out... Might be in bed by 8.30

Are you all out at work or summat?!


8.75 miles done, furthest I've run for months and months. Felt good though! Did run2/walk1 all the way round and i felt nice and manageable, hooray!


Unimpressed by being beeped at FIVE TIMES though by an assortment of car/lorry drivers. Grrrr.

Cats having cosmetic manicuring? Whatever next?!  

((((Podds)))) Not very holidayish at all  


Welcome Joonie! Moves fast in here Just keep plodding on slowly and ignore what anyone says about running and cycling - there's a few folks in here that'll try to talk you into a triathlon before you've run to the end of the street! 

DL running! That's what's next! So when's the marathon DL? 

Your disease has infected me - I'm currently sat in running kit playing with Fetch and waiting for my tea to go down so I can go out for 8 miles. Can't say I'm going to run them all but with a 13 mile trail race in just 4 weeks I've got to do something!

Jam first - then more jam. No cream. Ever

Goodness me DL, a mojo? Where do I find one of those?!  

Yep Chuggles, chaos is due to preparations for impending house move. We're (slowly) getting there but Mr Daffs has been here for 26 years and is rather likes to keep things 'just in case' so we have rather a lot of *stuff* to sift through... Quite tedious and I imagine we'll be at the point where we can start, you know, putting paper on the walls and fixing the plaster - but for now it's just sorting, putting things in boxes, endless trips to the tip etc. 

Been at it for months and the cellar still isn't clear... 

I'm intermittently cheerful Bit like the weather really

Tee hee Westie, what an image!  

Wooo hooo for C2!  Lovely news  

Nice cycling Yums And a trip to the cinema with C1! What a treat!  

Working at home today and already I'm grumpy and impatient and I haven't even finished my breakfast!  Quite bored of living in building site/house looking like something from the Hoarder Next Door. Yawn.
