no put that bill off as long as poss! We are just over £600 a month for 3.5 days a week which is super cheap for edinburgh. Is literally a fiver a day less than most other places and for the life of me I have no idea why! 

Hows your mum now Ttwirly? 

Hello to everyone huge waves. I am reading but posting is hard as  usually on the train and the signal is precarious  but a big thanks to Caro becauSe your pic today made me feel less self pitying about being so tired and I got off my ass and did 5k. No intervals sesh because hubby had a melt down at Louise so I couldn't leave and I was set to can whole thing and eat cake but then you came into my head and how youare still   running so well  and I  thought move your lard woman. 

Also a wee anecdote for CM. I work for a multi national law firm and for two whole days the Edinburgh office has had zero systems access and zero phones and no one gives a toss. Vodafone were to be there 9am today to identify the fault. Didn't arrive. Oh we will be there at 2.30. They went to fricking glasgow!! So we still have no access and they will haven't identified the bloody fault. i had to work in weege an extra day today and still had no phone as it goes via edinburgh. Thank gawd I'm off on Thursday  I emailed our chief executive who happens to be in Scotland this week and have requested a meeting tomorrow because this is completely unacceptable.

Also going to London. Nov for me and my school pals. If you book hotel via superbreak you get guaranteed cheap rail tickets. It's only about £35 return ed - London. So I have return rail fare and 2 nights at the premier inn in southwark for £185.

just home from tennis and police car was in front of me as I turned into my street. He then parked at my door. Felt physically sick til he said someone dialled 999....  That'll be Fraser then. OMG. Mortified. Really apologetic. He was totally cool about it and said it happens all the time.  Even still. Argh.

I just can't believe those of you with babas are able to train for a marathon! I tried for a half and never got off my ass. Permanently too tired and just no bloody time! 

In the midst of a delightful vommy bug, chickenpox sandwich   It's been ever ending.of course lucky me I felt like sh!t yesterday so went to bed at 5pm and as usual was made to feel like I was somehow skiving. Then Lou started puking at 1.30am and again at 2.45am. Andy then started with the tex ritters in the morning and basically I had to get over it and get up and deal with them. Fraser was banned from nursery die to 4 loose nappies yesterday (of course he's only done one tiny and solid poo today grr!) and of course Lou couldn't go to school. Did manage to put F down for a nap at 9.30 and retreated to bed at that point. We both slept 2h. Came downstairs to find Lou on ipad - fine - and Andy also asleep. Fine except he then proceeded to go to bed and has pretty much stayed there. Argh. Have now come downstairs and house still a total bombsite. 


Acht i'm just grumpy. He did change lou's bedding and he bathed her. I think. Maybe not. I wanted to wash her hair post vomming bit don't think that happened. 


Am also grumpy cos having returned to intervals last week I wanted to go this week but can't.
