Welcome Pip! I'm doing GNR on 7th September too . i have three boys, 6, 3 and 6 weeks so in a very similar boat to you  I had to have a c section again so will probably be starting running again about the same time as you! 

PCM - boo . Hope something helps soon. 

Caro - pita decision! Small is beautiful (says she doing GNR but I just want to di it once!) but my favourite races have all been smaller

hoggle - boo. I get reactions like that toO. Have a similar situation with Archie and hubby just is not coping. It's a nightmare when hes home as they just wind each other up. 

Sonya - we have a VW Touran. You can get three across, but, Ted has to go in first so he/we can clip the belt buckle. George has isofix base for his seat not sure if we make it more or less tricky doing that. Not sure how it will be when Archie goes into his high back booster but it will have to work! 

tt - your poor mum. Hope she's on the mend soon. 

Awful, awfuk night last night.  Hacking badly. My six week check turned into a chest consultation. Got berated for not having started steroids (I have to keep them at home) in a nice way as I'd misread my asthma plan that when I get to six puffs + of ventolin a day plus a deteriorating peak flow then I need to seek medical attention. Whoops. Hope I havent made things worse. George now coughing too so just hoping I've passed on some type do immunity as the prospect of a repeat performance of what happened with Archie is quite frankly terrifying

Someone posted on Vixo's Facebook post that they arrived safely. Phew!

caro - grr!!! and yes it could be someone way worse!

jg - be very careful running if you're ill! It's just not worth it and I still wonder if doing that is what contributed to me being so ill 18 months ago. You will cope dropping a training run!

Tee hee to interest free credit and marks points! i quite see the logic!

done for. Still fighting cough and Geogre seems to have decided to start his six week growth spurt a few days early. Yawn! Have tried Vick myself tonight as boys were much better last night. just hoping peak flow improves as any worse I really will have to go to GP...  The steroids are sat in the box semi berating for me fpr not opening them...

Last thing they learn when spelling cm. Never fear. You won't be raising a text speak speller

I believe the m4 did it to spite me tonight, couldn't believe it after my post earlier. Typical! (Hubby home just after 6om though, I know lots of routes though the lanes, shout if you need to know so e!) 

Tt - still reeling over your healthcare costs! You'd almost want to be ill at that price! Hubby's just asked if you get a 3 for 2 offer on obstetric care?

M aNd S deal here too! V yummy, just a shame a George did the whole newborn I smell food so I need food thing during the main course. How do they always know?!

Windy here, we've only just noticed though!

coughing better upstairs so far. Did Vick on the feet. Think I'm surviving by taking regular ventolin. If it means not taking steroids I'm v happy! feeling a lot better in myself so hoping I've fought the worst of it, the night sweats involved due to post pregnancy and a virus were bogging!

we are watching the ice skating and Jason Brown and Archie announced: 'look it's Mummy!', and Ted responded 'no it's not, he's only 19, mummy's way older than that!' Not sure which comment is worse!!!

Quick one, CM panic not about the m4!!!! I can honestly, in ten years of doing the commute say that I have been delayed in single figures. It's definitely on one hand the amount of times I've been late for the childminder. You WILL be fine. Don't let that add to your worries re the new job.

Go for it CM. I think it will be life changing in the right way. And yes, use maintenance and child benefit for what they're intended. You do cut yur cloth to suit your means and I think the whole time I've known you your job just seemed to drag you further and further down. The commute is a PITA but you get used to it and leaving when you are shold mean you miss a good chunk of the traffic. Leaving at 7.45 makes a big difference. 

my kids love having a childminder. It's a real family atmosphere and I love walking In seeing them all playing games together. She adores my boys too, wouldn't have my childcare any other way. 

Yay to friend! How amazing. 

Feeling sorry for myself, think I'm succumbing to the boys chest lurgy . I bed dosed up and hoping. It's making my op site hurt. Gah. hackinh five weeks post c section is not recommended. Just have to hope George doesn't get it...

Fingers crossed they can work some magic cm. Sounds miserable. Tbh, surely sleep us going to help no matter what position you're in? My mum always sleep is the best medicine!  

As for Cardiff commute...  I'm a 9 year veteran of it! Taking m4 to junction 30 is best way I've found. Avoids the 1 mile queue at the St Mellons interchange. Alternatively you can hit the lanes to come out in Runmey orPontprennau. Train wise, there's always the possibility of Rogerstone station? Train times are 11 minutes past the hour with free parking and then 35 minutes past the hour from Cardiff. Parking is free and you're going the right way with the traffic flow if you can make it work. 

Yay Sonya and TT! Such a relief to see one in there on the third isn't it? Think I'd been scanned four times by my 12 week scan with George, what a palaver!

Hoggle - yay to house! Hope it works out for you. 

Jg - nothing worse than a hard work class whatever the reasons. Did I read that you thought there were prospects of a more permanent job? Or was that my sleep fogged imagination?!

so I now have the big boys with a hideous cough (Ted up struggling to breathe last night, hubby panicked saying inhaler wasn't working but he was using the wrong one!) ventOlin worked thank goodness. Archie keeps sparking a temperature at night usually about 40, cue ibuprofen and paracetamol which thankfully works, George is unsettled with reflux and I think is now getting constipated with Gaviscon and hubby dropped an old (large style) computer monitor on his foot and has at least broken his toe. Aaggh!  It's going to be a long night I fear!

Ooh excellent mm! I'm just sorting my accommodation for Great North Run. Have just taken plunge and booked flights up from Bristol, £140 so cheaper than train and a LOT quicker. Think I'll probably book university accommodation via GNR, my friends dad is a several times veteran of the race so am going to pick his/her brains later. V excited now!

CM - people I know who work at the Uni find them v flexible. Hope thus is the case for you! 

Lotte - completely forgot about your selection! Well done you, amazing news. 

Boo, really want to get running again, must be patient!
