I'm doing SW diet, but weighing in at work.  we pay £1/ week and the winner gets the money.

No walking tonight, it looks a bit "black over Bill's house"  Ironing to be done though.

Its gone stuffy here and I'm in danger of falling asleep at my desk!

((( Podds ))) hope everything goes ok today.

Well done Meldy and Mathschick - cant wait for the reports.

Chuggy - Monty looks a handsome chap.  ~~~~~~~~~ for C1.  Hope things calm down.

Had a bit of a rubbish weekend, but hay-ho.  Being doing my strength exercises for 2 weeks now, and amazingly I've lost 4lb (I have been watching what I eat too) and lost an inch off my waist and 1.5 inch off my hips.  woohoo.

Still no running, might try a walk tonight.

(((Chuggs))) Hard decision but the right one, what a lovely thought about rehoming another dog, I've been without Max for 3 years now, and I still miss having him around, (OK I sound crazy)

I've had a lovely morning of delivering training, stress free from all the operational stress.  Now back in the operational stress!!!


Still no running and only just walking for me.  Can now put weight on foot, still havent got full walking motion without a twinge, but hopfully will be ok next week.  Physio has said only do some walking, no running for another couple of weeks.  Annoying.

I've been trying to post since 7am!!!  Stupid work! 

Tubs, your post about fling made me cry, I know exactly how you felt, I was the same with max, talking to him all the time. 

Chuggs, I think you know when the time is right, looking back we left max too long and I think he suffered for it.  ((hugs)) 

Its true we do treat animals better in this situation, with Snaunty the last 5 days were horrendous, although we belive she was out of pain, by that point there is no return and its more dignified to come to a more peaceful end.   It being debated in the commons again, lets hope it moves forward.

DL - jeez, poor lad, the system is just so wrong, for us simple folk we just dont understand it.  And from knowing foster carers from years ago not much has changed, I remember her having the same issues.  Hopefully he has enjoyed his time with you and you can help him come to terms with his long term placement.

Knowing what has happened with my friend recently with the Social Work system it is a feckin shambles.  She had the right outcome and family is back together, but will take a lot to repair the damage.  She is having "recommended" visits to help improve family live with health workers and other professionals, but after 6 weeks that will be the end of it.  So far she's had 2 visits and both the professionals said they cant beleive she's had to go through it, there has been no evidence of any concerns and her kids have a normal family life.   Whilst I recognise the good that they do its scary that one incopentent SW can damage a good strong family unit.

Spence, you on flippin holiday again!!!

The BFG cat has become a tempoary lodger, neighbour is moving out but the house she's moving into has been delayed on the exchange, considering she is about to have a baby in the next 3 weeks you can imagine the stress.  Plus she has to now move in with her in-laws with a new baby, 18month, and her mum is coming over from South Africa for a month.  She doesnt get on with in-laws!!!

Right better get working

Mathschick, you will laugh at the pressies one day!!!  Never heard of a fuddle, its a "bring your own food buffet!"

DL oh you did make me laugh, hope your back is feeling better.  Conkers is brilliant, bet you cant wait to go again!!!

Spence, I would have been having a good nosie through the window, but I wouldn't have gone out.  living in stoke you never know who has a weapon!

I was mortgage free for 6 months, then bought another house!

Well I ended up in MIUtoday, leg had swollen again and was having difficulty bending it, still couldn't put weight on it.  Nurse looked worried because it was 5cm bigger than my other calf and said it could be torn, meaning operation and plaster.  I felt sick, going on holiday in 6 weeks.

Anyway, after a scan with a nice doctor who squeezed me in his list, no big tear, but lots of little ones.  Advice is rest, ibruprofin and swimming as physio.  I wont be running before I go away, daren't risk it and end up in plaster!  hopefully I can walk on it properly soon because limping around is making my good leg achey carrying all the weight.

Think it might be time to get my bike out!

Some great racing today, well done in the heat.

And Xb was smiling so all must be well.

Oh Sluggy mortgage free. Woohoo great achievement.

I've had the leg up most of the day, went shopping cuz OH would buy crap and I'm trying to be healthy after a week of troffing with the family. And been a drive out with OH cuz I was bored to death! Will ice it the rest of the night and sit still. Calf is still a bit swollen, foot can go flat on the floor but can't walk on it. We have a stanner stair lift at work, no idea if it works!!!
Only 6 weeks to holiday, seeing as I can't run I'll be doing davina core and arms for the next few days and perhaps try a swim.

I've hobbled around morrisons!!! Have been able to put foot flat in floor with slight weight, not much, but when walking I'm still on the ball of my foot.
In work tomorrow so will book in with physio. It feels better though. Stairs at work will be a challenge and not sure I can drive yet!

Mathschick I love watching storms. Was a bit gutted ours was only a few flashes of lightening.

And goooooooo XB. He's racing today too.

Get to the social spence, you'll be glad you did.

I'm on the ibroprofin coco, should help but not planning on doing much today now.

Right, ice pack, cuppa, and relax!

We haven't really had much of a storm here, but it's 23 d already so very hot.

Noggs hope you can hang on to your bits as long as possible!

Lots of BBQ smells last night. Love a good BBQ yum

This morning pain has reduced. When sitting I can put my foot flat on the floor, but when standing I can only get to within an inch of my heel roughing the floor then the pain starts. So looks like another day of RICE. Have to hop around morrisons first!!! Going to be a boring day. I am the worst patient!!!

Officially on the injury bench. Running for my phone jumped out the patio landed in my dodgy leg and something went ping in my calf. Can't put weight on it, can't put foot flat on floor.

Currently have it up, with a compression stocking and ice for 10 mins every hour.

Swollen and extremely painful. So upset and annoyed.
