morning all

not had deep fried mars bar but I have had chocolate cake for breakfast  it was a birthday at work yesterday and I was offsite so they saved me a piece

I have a puppy who clambers into the chair to sit on my lap - I've tried to explain to him that he is the wrong size of puppy for this but he is very determined, Taken him out for a walk this morning, he gets better at one thing and then fails at another - this morning he'd forgotten about roads

club run last night was very cold but glad I forced myself out to do it

sounds like you are doing really well Des

just spoke to Mr FF - he is not a happy bunny. He's been waiting 2 weeks following his ankle x-ray expecting to see a specialist, and the appointment was with a fracture doc - he doesn't have a fracture -arrrggghhh! so now he has to go to docs to get a referral to the right person

welcome back Des

you're getting some fab walks in these days Pippi

Sluggy that is great that SM is happy in her dementia. there was an old lady at my mum's nursing home who went totally batty in the most jolly way - that's the way I would like it if it happens to me.

Hi Spence, no I didn't do the 10k - crikey Helen is super speedy! I did see her at the parkrun she was volunteering. you definitely have a sub 2 in there somewhere

oh Chuggy that virus sounds absolutely awful

parkrun was fab, over 500 people turned up though and they ran out of tokens  lots of people turn up for inaugurals so I'm sure it will be much quieter next time. I started near the back and it was so congested I did the 1st mile a minute slower than the next 2 so no PB this time, which means I'll have to do it again.

((((Daffs)))) that's not like you at all. sometimes lots of little things gang up on you to bring you down, I hope you feel better soon. I can recommend running

ah Sluggy SM is showing some decline isn't she - I just hope she stays happy with it, that makes things so much easier.

I couldn't do white furniture unless its wipe-able. and I avoid white clothes, that's just asking for curry and red wine stains

got all me fingers and toes crossed for the flat purchase Sluggy

good news on your eldest MC

nice club run last night - 3 miles with the beginners (who are doing fab, I ran at the front this time and they did the whole thing with no walking), then 2 miles with a couple of regulars - we got wet

quiet in here

Claire there also beginner plans on this site. I would keep it fairly simple but make sure you get the long runs in

(((Yummy mummy))) I can imagine your time with her is very precious to her now she's on her own - its a hard balance spending time with them but trying to have a life of your own - you're doing a fab job Yums. and well done to mini2 - what a star!

oh no Sluggy! I'm glad SM is OK after her fall and that your lurgies are on their way out

enjoy Swindon DL!

I do love Christmas - we are not big on presents although it still seems to cost a fortune! the boys are all about the food and love my Christmas dinner. this year will be really tough with just the 4 of us around the table - only a few years there were 8  

Mr FF is off work with his ankle, appointment next week, he only gets 3 months sick pay so I hope its not a long wait for treatment or we could be in trouble

our sparkly new parkrun starts this Saturday

Dragon I've been having similar thought on Trump myself - a lot of discussions on the radio have been around checks and balances - he just won't be able to do things he wants as he would in business there will be people telling him he can't do things and he won't be able to cope with that - I predict he won't last out the 4 years

running club tonight

Trump Trump Trump  oh my life!

Mr FF has appointment with specialist in a couple of weeks, from what I've read they can now do replacements or they can fuse the joint? anyway he's sitting about a lot resting it - good job I'm at work, I'm not the best with sympathy...

house moves can certainly drag on - its a great chance to declutter though, I always admire people with clutter free tidy homes, just not happening here

Yums I do find your sister's attitude very strange, very frustrating for you but we can only do what we feel is right and leave ourselves with no regrets xx

Ah Podds great photos, one of us running the race popped up on my facebook recently, fab day .

I think its very difficult to maintain a private persona if you indulge in social media, doesn't worry me at all but I can see that its a bit different for teachers etc.

ran with running club yesterday but was needed to run with the beginners so was a very gently 3 mile plod - which is never a bad thing
