Things you want to say but can't

Can someone please add an extra day to this week for me.  Everyone else can have the standard 7, but I need another when time stands still for everyone else, where I can catch up on all this shit before I unravel.

WOOHOO! I have new wallpaper for my living room.

That was to the slugs, not the wallpaper. 

Rectal bleeding and running.

If you have coeliac disease, then 100% gluten free is vital.  Even if you don't get violently sick eating gluten, it is doing damage to your gut.  "Silent Coeliac" is probably the worst, as it's not obvious if you have eaten gluten, but it's still having an effect.  Really worth looking at Coeliac UK's website, as they have a lot of information on symptoms and the long term effects.  Hubby has gone from being barely able to climb the stairs and having to be within rushing distance of a loo at all times to having loads of energy and "normal" toilet habits.

How can this happen?

Normally a hire agreement has the "hirer" and "additional drivers" - or at least they used to.

Still, I doubt our comments on a running forum will be enough to change the law.....

If there were only 2 people allowed to drive (i.e. named on the hire agreement), it must have been one of them (unless they allowed someone else to drive, in which case said person was not insured - also a pretty serious offence).  So narrowed down to two, who know each other, and who both know who was driving...........

So at a minimum, why can't they charge them with obstructing the course of justice or something?  That's got to have a higher penalty than failing to provide details, which seems to be just a rap on the knuckles offence.

Agree it's not the police's fault - and probably what the CPS in this case says is in line with the current law, but it's wrong that someone can get off with this.

Scott - were you tested for Coeliac disease during any of your investigations?  Hubby had many of the symptoms you described, and it took quite a long time for him to be diagnosed.  Just a thought.

If the law was changed to say that the 2 potential drivers would both be charged with the "real" offence instead of "failing to provide details", I bet the individual who was not driving would be falling over themselves to give the actual driver's details.  The police know it was one of two people who must have been driving.  One of them committed a crime and the other one is covering for them. 

Who was the MP who ended up in court because he got his wife to say she was driving when he was caught speeding, so that he could keep his licence.  Then she confessed when he was found to have been cheating on her?

Has Dr Sanjay killed the London Marathon?

Yes, it's different, but it does increase in size with  a lot of strenuous use, like other muscles do.

Anyway, as others have said, I'd rather take my chances and live my life feeling fit and being able to run than sitting on the sofa taking the odd wee wlak to the shops.

Indeed, Sideburn. 

Thing is, when you run, or do any type of exercise, you damage your muscles.  On rest days, your body repairs the damage and makes the muscles stronger, so next time, you can run further or faster before doing damage.  There will come a time when you overdo it, and may pull or tear a muscle. No-one thinks this is too risky.  It comes with the territory. The heart is a muscle, so...............
