Goodness DL, you're getting a wormery? At least worms are relatively easy to look after I suppose. Is there much worm-based stuff in your past career? Poor FC, must be difficult for all of you in that situation, and as Sluggy said, I hope you realise all the admiration we hold you in. Whatever ends up happening, you've done your best and she'll know that (even if she won't admit it right now...)

((Podds)))) hope the car gets sorted out! Pesky thing. 

Spence, good grief!! Glad it was you and not a little old lady 

I've been to run club  Goodness me it was hard work. No idea why - we only did 5k in 43 minutes  but having been at the front of the beginners' group a few weeks ago I was back to huffing and puffing at the back. VERY hilly round here mind you, and I'm at the tail end of a cold so I'm blaming that At least I did it!

(picked up a takeaway on the way home mind you....)

I'm more of a funny pages at the back type of girl  

Dragon! Flying! Wow! SSSOoooooo impressed - and being filmed too! What for, can you tell??  

Ooh, lots of running going on here too

Goodness how very frustrating DL Such a good opportunity too Any idea why she doesn't want to go? Did she actually apply for the place? How's about 'I'll let you not go on the condition you spend every day doing...... [insert helpful but dull activity here]'  

Sparkly and exciting here (not). Run club tonight though, not been for weeks!

Lovely blog post Westie! Loved the video of the snake with your heavy breathing in the background SO impressed at you roaming the hills at your advanced age

Ooh, I love a good bit of sewing. Never particularly managed a straight line mind you  

You're a gobby lot this afternoon! 

Podds, welcome back! Glad you're still in one piece. You made the right decision for you at the time lass, don't beat yourself up (although I can see how it would be mighty vexing - pain never seems as bad with hindsight I suppose!) I'd love to read a fuller race report if you ever get round to writing one (er, speaking of which, Meldy, have you not written one?! On Podds' desk first thing tomorrow please!)  

Welcome back Pixie! That's a super speedy time or a 5k - far faster than I've ever managed! Take it easy though with that hip and slow down if needs be, yes? 

All this talk of smoke alarms reminds me that I also took our battery out in the middle of the night because of intermittent beeping - and haven't replaced it... Must do that today! 

Chuggles, what a fabulous party you were invited to! How very spiffing  

Nice day here, lounging morning, then a pootle through the woods on the foldy bikes - probably did a total of about 7 miles, with a stop at one cafe for tea and another for ice cream Then popped to a friend's house, then a GIANT thunderstorm, and now pottering about in the attic. All very cheery  

(and thanks for asking about my fundament Chuggs You'll all be pleased to know it is now fully functional and pain free  Drinks all round I say )

No PBs for me - but I did go to Skegness for the first time in my life - does that count? Inadvertently wandered into a street fight (very glad Meldy's pals were just arriving on the scene), watched some bloke weeing in the street round the corner from the restaurant, woken in the middle of the night by someone being violently sick in the room next door, and then this morning a cafe was completely cordoned off by yet more policy! 

Still, had a good view of the stage at the local mini festival from the giant hotel room window so spent all yesterday evening watching that with a nice G&T

Oh Snaily I don't even know what to say. How dreadful, no wonder you're exhausted. can you take some time off work? Compassionate leave or something? Sounds like the last thing you should be doing right now. And don't add food to your list of woes, no need to feel guilty at a time like this, do what you need to to get yourself through xx

Just got the full results for all stages of Sunday's run - we were in the last 3 (out of 881) for most stages, as expected  but for two of the stages there were 30 people/pairs behind us - including the stage where we stopped for a play on the swings - clearly everyone else did the same thing!

Daughter looked lovely Spence, and yes that is something to be proud of! Don't let on that you would have paid for more though

Mum's still not gone through the menopause at 56 which is why I'm holding out for following my grandma instead!!

Sister's hamster died today. She thinks her boys (who have taken NO interest in said hamster) will cry and want another one if she tells them, so she's hidden cage (including dead hamster) in the garage. Hope she remembers to go back and clean it out when they're in bed tonight...(!)

Feeling rather in need pf a cooling mat myself - it's vile out here!!

You'll be pleased to know I've had the offending tiny ice pick removed. Doc asked why I thought it was that causing the problem... and said the only way to find out for sure is to take it out... Yawn.

So now we're on a never ending round of hormonal experimentation. it's like being a teenager all over again! Finding myself hoping to follow in my grandma's footsteps with a nice easy menopause at 36

You kicked Podds out at 10pm? Heartless fiend  

Is she still wandering the wilds?! or has she gone back to work? Podds - note on Meldy's desk... Oh... er, get back in here and tell us all about it!

Chuggs, still suffering here and working at home again so I can go back to the walk in clinic this afternoon. Getting VERY tedious now. 

Still, I swam 400m last night - took forever (and I suffered greatly for it afterwards) but it was fun!
