It's best that way Dave, I reckon...none of this waiting until Summer starts to race I have my one and only race in May. Might take me 90 minutes to do a 10k the state I am at the moment!

So, I'm a year older, Polly the Puma is no more, trying to decide on a name for the new Fiesta...currently Florrie or FiFi I think (though I'm not that sure it's a girl!)...have been poorly...errrrm...we have a double kayak new to the house to go with my single one (it's like a Neilson holiday at ours now! Windsurfing, cycling, tennis, kayaking...)...haven't been running expect parkrun each week (and even then, there's been some walking in the three miles) but have been doing a lot of bird seed and fat ball filling as the birdies are going loopy for food and a lot of walking to the sea and along the Prom...and dealing with more cancer news in the family *sigh* I'm trying not to think about that too much though. 

So that's me. Hope you are all well and happy.

Well. I only worked two days this week, so I am home on a Thursday morning, which is very odd. It also means I get to go to my first "Felpham Beach Estate Ladies Lunch Club" luncheon I will reduced the average age somewhat. 

Then this weekend, we welcome VIPV's (Very Important Pirate Visitors) which I am most excitipated about. 

Have a lovely sunshine filled day all, it's beautiful down here this morning. 

What is your oldest item of clothing you still wear?

I used to go dancing in the late '80s/early '90s every Thursday night (indie night) and Friday night (acid house) at the hacienda in a pair of flares that were my dad's. He worse them to see The Doors on the IoW in 1970. They eventually fell apart...ahhh, happy memories. Funkin has started to wear his "fish jumper" again that he got in 1989. It's vile...Mousie, I'm sure he will model it for you if you are a Good Girl

I have a dress from my old life as a shop girl at Next...I think the season code is SS1994 (in the old days there was a season code on the care label). I love that dress - and when I was thinner a few years back I wore it all the time. I would say my regularly worn oldest item of clothing is a pair of jeans bought in the clearance at debenhams, John Richmond ones when they first started the designers at debenhams thing...they were £10.50 and I've worn them nearly every week since I got them in (I think) 1996. So they must be barely anything per wear now...

i like the sound of Lilytoo's cheesecloth top

I survived a visit from my mother, mother's partner and my Nan. I am now trying to rid the smell of smoke. Granny was allowed to smoke in the conservatory but of course the smell sneaks everywhere...

I wish more than anything that I got on with them. The lack of understanding of each others lives is mutual but makes for a tough three days. Oh well. Done now.

FeFe, only four and three quarter hours left...hope you've done it.

Awesome work on the trophy Seren - you should be rightly chuffed to bits.

Deb, how on earth do you cope with those temperatures? D moans if it's -1! Best we don't move to Canadia...!
