morning all

Sluggy I went to Scotland for a meeting wasn't doing anyone a favour - I'm not that nice

Spence I haven't done the Roman 1X - strange distance so would be a PB!

woohoo for you Coco - hope you have a wonderfully relaxing holiday

Snaily your friend sounds just what you need at the moment (although these things often change into something else.... )

I was out at a quiz night last night - really nice evening but a bit of booze and a late night not great on a school day! and I've had a moan about my boss today and feel better for it

3 weeks DL! how fab - you'll be desperate to get back to work after that though!

We all love the traditional Christmas fayre - turkey, sprouts, Chrismas pud so no issues here. the only thing that we don't bother with is the cake - I love it but it mainly got wasted so I've not made one for a few years. I do make mince pies and end up eating the lot...

the best bit is having a few days of work!

I'm home again again today, need to assess the gift situation this morning. Got the decs up yesterday so thats sorted. 3 miles plodded this morning

(((Pippi))) sounds like a stressful time for you I hope you are feeling calmer

((((lovely WAISters))))

you night out sounded eventful Spence! we had a dinner and disco at the rugby club on Friday - mainly fab but a few incidents - drink always seems to be to blame!

No night out with work colleagues - its all a bit bah humbug these days - shame! at my old place we always enjoyed a night out

Coco your Christmas sounds perfect! I'm not doing loads of presents and the boys aren't expecting it but they are really looking forward to Christmas - its all about the food apparently!

I'm off work today will put putting up decorations, and cleaning, and possibly some shopping. had a lovely run Saturday morning I love cold sunny mornings

So have you been wearing your Christmas jumper today?

Hi Westie how fab that you are seeing more of the offspring! I think Sluggie's right, enjoy the walking - that's always been my fallback plan if running fails me - I love walking

(((Meldy's pal))) so sad

welcome back Kieran

glad you had a good day off Snaily sounds like your batteries are recharged

This morning I have plodded in the rain, luckily it eased off because it started off being rather painful! not keen on this weather I like the cold sunny stuff!

Sluggie - not my mum my MIL! they are both in the same care home now, my Mum's well past rational speach but MIL has been counting down the days til she's allowed home so this is a welcome suprise (just hope she doesn't change her mind)

I only got my SS email this morning and I'm notoriously disorganised

Coco I think it used to be the case that a lot of people (men) spent their lives at work! my theory is that sitting around the office means they don't have to contribute at home or do a share of household chores! that attitide is not so prevalent these days - I do work a lot of hours but its certainly not for the fun of it, and make sure I leave on time when I can. My boss sets a good example - he can find any excuse to leave early!

I love the vision of Chuggs munching through bowls of peas when the Ex had gone

Chuggs - no my Mum moved into the nursing home just before Christmas last year. It was really tough, but I think special events and anniversaries etc will always be hard. We will make sure its a lovely day for my Dad. It looks like my MIL will be staying there too - she had a mental assessment and I think has grudgingly agreed that she can no longer manage at home. I'm relieved because the alternative could have getting her sectioned etc which we went through and is pretty awful

I had a day shopping yesterday, stocked up on clothes for my Mum who has become a real fatty lately!  and made a start on presents  still plodding along too, ticking over!

(((Coco)))) crikey I do hope your holiday gets you mended

I'm hardly ever ill - watch me come down with a lurgy now......

your holiday sounds fab Cheesy

well runned to those what did

Larry it does sound like Holly needs her Mum I hope she can sort out a move in the New Year

I'm plodding along, couple of lovely chilly runs at the weekend. tough visit with my Mum yesterday but we made a nice day for my Dad anyway - think he's dreading Christmas a bit, don't think it will ever get easier.

I'm having a day off tomorrow - hoorah! shall be Christmas shoppping - boo
