Morning All

If it's any consolation I work in edumurcation and I'm working for the next two weeks. It's just shirkers like Spence and Pippi that let the side down whilst the likes of Podds and I who have to keep the whole thing afloat.

Sympathy for your Easter Monday working JFF - I'm technically off for that one but I do have to work the Bank Holiday Monday in May.....for the 2nd year running due to an exam  Means for the 2nd year running I have to stand up the lovely Yums as this used to be our annual hot date

I have been doing computer based tests again...........and a computer crashed again..............and the recovery system given by the exam board didn't work again...........  

Last time it was 6 weeks before the candidate could resit.........this time I'm pressing for Monday! 


Sluggie - quite right to keep doing your thing for the time being........no point in not doing so until the time comes.........

Sounds nice Daffs - I'm rather partial to the odd sherry now and again myself.......although port is even better

Lovely area  Many many decades ago I was at Edinburgh Uni and in the summer we used to trek the Dick Vet ponies down to Hawick (iirc) where the vet students ran week long trekking holidays staying at the youth hostel

** I'm not a vet but did use to ride out a lot at weekends so was one of the honoured ones invited to do the 2 day trek down and back at either end of the season...

Happy memories

Re Austria - not only am I appalling at going up hill but I don't have many around here so hill specific training has to be a bit make do and mend

The theory is that he was moving "at speed" and hit the edge of a raised paving stone and hence it sliced down and in.....it was a most impressive wound I have to say - it smiled at me

 I am crap at looking at profiles and understanding how they translate into 'real' riding.  

Me too.........although I do like numbers.........that's why I'm going to do the Surrey Hills sportive this weekend to see just how bad I am at some "known" (to other people anyway!) hills........suspect there will be some walking involved.......usually is when I make a rare excursion to the hills.......

Whereabouts were you riding Nursey?  Have you got decent access to hilly bits for practice?

Aww Chuggy - make sure you and Mr C have a very quiet day today - these events, however positive, are exhausting to get through and it often hits you in the days after just how worn out you are

I am a good girl - up at 0530, dogs walked, the DG and Mr P summoned to wound inspection and passed, spin class at 0700 and now at my desk..........trying to round up the last few idiot parents who haven't told me whether or not they want a year 7 place in Sept even though their deadline was last week....

The slightly "honest"   email I sent to the remaining parents last night has had some results I'm glad to say as I have to let county know today

Happy middle of the week sunshiny but that's no use to anyone day

Today's disaster has been losing a freezer full of semi-thawed refrozen food.........so now defrosting fridge / freezer and saved fridge stuff is in bags outside as it's quite cool...........

I must have been very baaaaaaad in a previous life 

£30 shampoo Spence? Dotty had best look uber glossy at that price! 

Anyone seen Melds since she threatened the GPO with the nit comb? Or are there just the remains, along with DL's finch in the wheelie bin..........

Tomorrow in order to make 7am spin I'll have to be out with the dogs by 5.30am as Mr P can't really do the walking currently.........I'll be asleep by mid morning at that rate
