Break out the mulled wine and mince pies (I actually did have that yesterday at the hairdressers!) Christmas has begun. I've done the Santa Dash! Pippette ran, I walked it for the first time as I know I'm too lurgified to run. Mr P walked too so that was quite nice. I did jog the last few hundred metres tocross the finish line ... lovely morning.

the spent lunch and afternoon with family as Mr Ps youngest brother came over to sisters and we all got together to pass presents on. Oh, and get jumped on by three excited schitzus! However you spell it ...

lucky FP getting to meet the real life Chuggy! 

Hope the runs went well,MC and Yums!

What haopened there?

waves to everyone.

I've spent a lovely weekend with Pippette - didn't think of saying that 10 years ago! - first in Stratford where we did the tourist stuff and went to see the Tempest. Excellent! First time I've been to Stratford since sixth form without having to run somewhere With you lot!

sunday we went to the Good food Show at the NEC for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed it. Currently eating cheese on walnut bread.

You southern softies should have been in 

North Wales. We had a glorious 2 days walking in sunshine. Warm in the sun, but a chill br eeze at time. Views across Cardigan Bay - wavand d to Dragon! - Snowdonia, with the high peaks white, and across to Anglesey, 

We stayed Ina lovely B&B. The man took us to drop our car at one place and dropp d us off at another so we didn't have to do a circular walk. The book said it would be 12 miles. At dusk, we headed across fields (and someone's garden!) to walk along the road for the last couple of miles. GPS made it 16 miles, so no wonder it took longer than anticipated. Today we did a bit shorter but no Less lovely walk with cliff and sea and views of the mountains.

Popping back in ...

I was observed yesterday (in our 'friendly and helpful' inspection! - by local heads etc, not unfortunately by DL) and it was pretty good! Makes a change after a former colleague who only ever put me down!

Now that is over and done with - I was in bed and asleep before 9! I'm waking up about 4 or 5 and just dozing then. I think that is partly an age thing. Now I am busily trying to write a long Action plan to apply for an International Schools Award. It's not my job but I was asked to do it a couple of weeks ago with the deadline of this weekend. If the person whos job it really is had been asked to do it, she would still be twittering on about all the things that could be done, rather than ever actually doing anything .... grrr (she annoys me!)

I did have a proper run on Monday - just to be 'normal'! but not tonight ...

Beautiful here,  up cold and breezy. Parkrun (30.59) then gardening - which I like and neeeded doing.

 Just back from fireworks along the Mersey - we could see two lots towards Liverpool then some from a barge moored mid river by us. All coordinated. Very impressive. There were some more further downriver but we couldn't see them from where we were. Crowds Of people!

Chippy tea now, hot and comforting.

Ours were full of Halloween ...

3 trick or treaters here ... I sometimes ignore them but they were all rather cute pre-school witches and ghosts!

Good news, Sluggy. It looks lovely. You could have got a bit of a mansion round here for that!

I do like my Garmin for the run/walk timings, but don't use most of the stuff. I really like being able to set it up on the computer rather than fiddle with butttons on the watch. Pippette has a fitbit which is good for just counting and timing (how far, how fast).

I haven't run. I woke up at 4 a.m. Decided to teach my class Oranges and Lemons and share it with our French partners ... As you do, at 4 a.m. in the holidays ... I might have dozed or just rested till 6 then sat up and read for a while until I got sleepy.

Now I'm planning maths. We have a 'friendly' observation in 10 days when neighbouring heads come and observe and see what we need to improve for when the big O turn up .. ('friendly' as in 'friendly fire' ...) I hate all this stuff!

Meldy, you need a good night's/day's sleep by the sound of it!

I've had a good night's sleep until nearly 10. We have come home from Hadrian's Wall Pennine Way - over 4 days we walked 50 miles - and Monday was just an afternoon stroll! One day was particularly hard going! The weather was better than it seems to be today - Tuesday was glorious. The leaves are still on the trees and the colours were spectacular.

We got off to a slightly iffy start when the cottage didn't have us booked in! I had worried a bit about it (I ususally do!) as she had been very informal via email, but I had been very definite ("Thanks for your confirmation of our booking ..."). Still, it wasn't double booked, we could get in by a number code and she sent someone round to make the bed. It was clean and tidy after the previous people - just a few cups and plates had been washed and left out to drain - I can put up with that!
