I'd assume a meal too PIppi (but I think I'd put a spare mince pie in my bag in case it meant nibbles and I was too hungry!)

We've been flute choiring outside in the wind and freezingness. Planning to spend the afternoon in a hot bath and not leave the house til next year

er, beige buffet?!

Bet you haven't eaten as much crap as me today spence... Didn't actually have any lunch, just mince pies, chocolate biscuits, stollen, fudge, mulled wine, champagne etc...

Secret santa, christmassy party(ish) and REF results all in one day made for a rather 'celebratory' attitude at work... (depending on which set of results you read we came 1st, 3rd, 10th, 14th, 18th or 23rd - pretty good, but given the number of ways to read the results everyone's saying that about themselves it seems!!)

Anyway, 17 days off now and i'm planning on sleeping for at least 10 of them

I love walking too Lovely to see you Westie! Glad the family are all doing ok

Just got in, worn out. Mr Daffs' new band practicing in kitchen so I've sneaked into my nightie and got into bed with tea, potato cakes with gooseberry jam and a hot water bottle. I know how to live!

(((meldy and pals))))) how very sad. Good they were all able to be there with him though xx


If I stole your mojo DL I certainly don't have it any longer - have only run 3 miles since the start of October!


Some kind of white slush bedevilled the pavements this morning impeding my progress considerably.

Seems to be the norm to talk like that in universities coco. I flatly refuse to work over my hours (although inevitably that waverswith travel for fieldwork) and console myself by believing that others are just working really inefficiently


And anyway, i never have a free evening for work to eat into Get your head down, do what needs to be done in the day and the rest can wait til tomorrow - we're not brain surgeons after all xxx

Tis quite blustery round these parts (not super bad, but I did look like I'd been dragged through a hedge when I got in!)

((((podds and poorly waisters)))))

No Orkney for us this year Chuggs - we had 2 summery holidays this year so staying at home for Christmas, just the 2 of us Done that a few years in a row now though so we're thinking of holidaying again next Christmas - our 10th one together

Not long indeed coco, exciting times

Tried to put our tree up at half 11 last night. Tis bigger than i remember and i got quite bored of bending plastic branches after a while. Then i got an electric shock trying to adjust the lights so gave it up as a bad job and went to bed

chuggs, i love it that the best thing you could think of after a big fight was to eat peas out of spite I can just imagine you shovelling them in - 'i'll show you! all these years you've stopped me eating peas, well just look at me now!' I think my equivalent would be cooking beans in the slow cooker - mr daffs hates the smell but i love doing it

((((pporly, tired and ready-for-a-holiday waisters))))

7 working days left for me! Can't wait to get to work - i've got 5 days of chocolate avent calendar to open

Ah, cut off in your prime again Chuggles!

Evening all

Well run Yummity, good on you for adding to the parkrun community!

Spence, what a disappointment! But there will be a next time, very soon - next week in fact! Hooray Better than falling over and breaking your leg and not hitting 50 til next summer

Ooh, santa dash Pippi! Enjoy yourself My sister did one the other week in her Christmas jumper - said a santa suit is much cooler!

((((waister pals, old and new))))

Can't remember if I popped in - we now have both heating and cooker Nowt wrong with the boiler just bloke not resetting something he perhaps should have reset, but the cooker is on its last legs and we're not to use the grill at all. Yep Chuggles, on the case with freegle (although I did see a rather fetching new metallic red one )

No parkrun for me - full of cold and we did flute choir carols in the museum all morning instead

When do we get the little santa hats on our smiley faces??
