Two parkrns in18 months ... Does it sound like a worrying habit?

it was good - three laps of th lower park - slight uphill near tne end! Watch time 30:35. I'm pleased with that considering No training for six months.

Grrr at silly people and especially grrrr at cat sitters!

I'm going to parkrun tomorrow ... There, now I've said it, I'll have to, won't I? 

Unfortunately Pippette won't be there as she is racing. (Rowing) 

MC sounds like you need Nogs with a chainsaw and rotavator (but they compact your soil...) a garden near here was remodelled and planted professionally and has stayed looking good. Less so now as I think there is only the widowed husband left and now rather elderly.

take midge repellent Daffs! And watch out for tin baths...

I've been for a run- outside and everything! I have been full of good intentions but finding excuses all month ... We had a walk round a local park yesterday where a running trail has been laid out and it inspired me a bit.

We've spent the day at the RHS flower show at Tatton Park. Very enjoyable, though there were a few of the Cheshire set there that remind me of Nogs' fave. I mean who would spend 20000 on a glorified shed??? I was very restrained and only bought a few small plants to go near our paved area and hopefully spread through the cracks.

Now the forecast is rain, so I hope I can get out to put them in!

Happy hols - (I'm working at home a bit ... more if it rains!)

Good news on the Sharkey front!

Our cat has lost his miaow ... it's very quiet.

Some of us are still in school (though the children aren't).

Why 7 weeks Yums? (sorry I don't pay attention) Will you have achieved Nirvana?

While they were still building it?

Blencathra - heavy mist at the tops and strong winds - still a bad day in the hills is better than a good day at work.

Good news Daffs.

no I am not doing anything as silly as teaching over the summer, but trying to get some ideas or a plan for next year. 

Mr P is currently clearing out the garage and the junk in our back garden (yippee!) his blood tests and ecg were okay, I think. Doctors are of the opinion the dizzy spells should get better, but as they are getting worse again, are checking it all about. He will probably now have a 24 hour monitor so they can see what happens when he is dizzy. 

We are going to the theatre to see the Hook by Arthur Miller, highly recommended by a friend. I don't think it's about pirates ...

wlaking tomorrow, up Blencathra. Hope the wind has dropped by then. New parkrun today in Birkenhead park. I didn't go, but I will!

Happy Eid, DL and FC (You might find that the lack-of-mardyness lasts only a limited time, but you do get longer bursts of it and shorter breaks of re-mardyness between as time goes on)

Chuggs I'm not very doggy but my sister's dog used to be a bit like that - odd springs but not as extreme as deer.

I used Zotero to keep online notes, citations etc. It's free to download, fits in with Word and most browsers. I really liked it.

School's sort of out! kids gone though I'm back in Monday Tuesday (officially) then pretty certainly Wednesday, then the caretaker's off so school is shut, then I can't do school once I've stopped, which is why I'm looking at schems of work to teach French to mixed age classes. (as if teaching languages which I've never done to new classes wasn't hard enough, they have to be mixed age for the first time!!!)

Oh dear, Dragon. what a sad story - but good that you actually did something!

(we used to have a man next door but one that would be like that - ie you wouldn't know if he was okay or not as he wouldn't answer the door. Old lady that kept an eye on him had to put a note through telling him she was worried about him and he had to let her know he was okay so she didn't ring for help)

When Pippette was a Special someone had to go to a house like that (not her fortunately) but she heard him call in - "we have entered the house and the individual is ... (insert loud vomiting) ... very definitely dead"

((((Daffs)))) be sensible!

Great walk yesterday - I can feel it today. One slight moment of terror scrambling on a rocky outcrop but got my head sorted and told myself I had to keep going!!! No photos of the interesting parts - both hands clinging on for dear life! (I'm very dithery on rocks especially those with a big drop down! but other people were a bit daunted by it all too, as opposed to sauntering and taking it in their stride which is reassuring)
