Sorry to hear that Caro - if I'd realised yesterday I would have given you a bigger hug. Please take care of yourself - you are doing fantastically well xx

Afternoon all - haven't had a chance to read back yet - had a Child Protection session this morning - 3 hours of it so am a bit brain dead now - assuming that I had one to start with .

Absolutely tipping it down today. Out on INSET up town tomorrow and out on Thursday so my week's not going to lend itself much to running. Will have to step it up next week as my next 10k is on 19 October

Well done all! In the end I didn't run today. Went shopping instead and still don't know how I managed it but when I bought a pair of slippers from M&S not only were they different patterns, they were different sizes! Ended up going back to change them!

Downton Abbey soon! Anyone else an addict?

Snail - that's quite a poignant dear diary moment - keep well ((x))

Good luck everyone - it's a lovely bright sunny autumnal day here in Norf London - hope all goes well for the racers! Looking forward to hearing all your race reports!

Morning all! Busy day at work yesterday so didn't get a chance to post!

Wine and cake - things are looking up! Haven't tried popcorn vodka but did discover Thunder toffee vodka at the Good Food show a couple of years ago - yum, yum!

Pippi that sounds like quite an eventful trip to the swimming pool - well done in persevering!

Daffs - Chester is one of the marathons that I've always fancied - looks very scenic. Hope all goes well for you. Don't worry about weather forecasts too much - just remember how accurate Michael Fish was!

A damp Norf London at the moment but it did stay dry for parkrun and for the first time in our 3 or so year history, Grovelands parkrun had over 100 runners. I came 71st in a time of 29:47 so snuck in under the 30 minute mark so am happy enough with that. Thinking about going out with the local Sweatshop group tomorrow but I'll see what time I wake up. OH left for 10 days in Cyprus yesterday so I have the luxury of the bed to myself, remote control and the chance for a great read in bed in the morning. Can't decide what to do for the rest of the day. There's a mountain of ironing to conquer but there always is! Amazing how many clothes 4 people can get through during a week.

Snails ((x)) hope things start improving shortly. New foods are always good!

Enjoy your weekends x

Welcome home Slugsta - I'm one of the newbies intrigued by your "trial". Hope all goes well and looking forward to getting to know you.

M...eldy what is the complicated project you're avoiding? Glad to hear there's another stitcher here. Planning to dig mine out again this evening - I've not touched it since I got back from holiday at the end of August and if I want to give it as a Christmas present I'd better get a wiggle on although realistically speaking it looks like it might be for sister in law's birthday (next September!)

Thanks for the explanation of the contraption POdds - what have you done to yourself that you need the Cryocuff? Cake shopping sounds like fun!

I've remembered the right trainers this morning so will be trying a gentle 3 miles home - yay!

Hope you survived the green fug Yums!

Morning Kieran and Spence!

Hope you're ok today SS

Just jumping in to say see you there Caro - I'm number 4 this year! Must have been late entering! Let's hope the weather's better this year!

Hey Gentle Chugger a kindred spirit - FANTASTIC! The ladies in the office laughed when I told them where I'm going. They think I'm very sad! I have more than one project on the go but the one that I'm trying to concentrate on at the moment is a present for my sister in law who loves Audrey Hepburn. Hope this link works

By the way no place in VLM next year for me! Oh well, more time to stitch.

Wow I'm still struggling to get to know everyone here - could take some time!

Lots of excitement on other threads about the VLM magazine reaching households. Anyone on here entered? I did but am subsequently in self enforced retirement having not enjoyed the long runs for some while. Was due to run River Thames HM this Sunday but am currently trying to sell the place. What's the betting that now that I'm in two minds about running that I get a place.

Am trying to get out on a school trip next week to the Knitting and Stitching Show at Ally Pally - for my sins one of my other loves apart from running and reading is cross stitch. I just have to sweet talk my Head but as I'm his PA and make the tea it shouldn't be too difficult!

Hope you all have great days. Yesterday's run didn't happen - I'd packed my kit but forgotten the trainers and the ones that I walk in aren't the ones that I run in doh!
