Carrying water

Posted: 11/12/2002 at 01:19
Either get one of those bottles which are designed to fit around your hand - sorry can't remember who makes them but they're pretty widely available or invest in a bottle belt. Both take a little getting used to but once you have it's no problem.

Help! Advice wanted

Ironwolf, I have nothing to add to what's already been posted. I used to be in a similar position with regard to workload greater that time available. I stuck with it for a while and tried to discuss ways of improving things with my boss who always came up with the same answer - no money avialable to improve things, no way of reducing workload. I started to look around for alternative employment but eventually decided enough was enough and threw in the towel. Forunately my salary was not critical to the family budget so worked as a temp for a while, liked the flexibility and have pretty much stuck with that.

I have absolutely no regrets about leaving and had a small chuckle to myself when I found out my replacement was less than satisfactory!

Whatever you decide, always remember that you can only do so much and that your health and well-being is more important than most other things.

DW We love you

Cath - Just reread my post from last night and realise it sounds a bit like I'm having a dig at you for being down. It certainly wasn't intended that way. I am amazed by how well you seem to be coping most of the time and am not surprised you hit rock bottom from time to time. You wouldn't be human if you didn't. Sometimes life sucks and it always seems that the worst things happen to the best people.

Hope you and the dog enjoyed your walk and that the vampires listen to what you're saying.

All the best.

Staying Healthy

Hi Cath

Went to a funeral today of a friend who died suddenly from a pulmonary embolism a couple of weeks ago. She was 41, suffered occasionally from asthma but was otherwise fit and apparently healthy - played tennis and squash at a high level, active, fun-loving, popular, you get the picture. Anyway during his address the vicar was talking about grief in general and said "..many of you will be asking why did this happen to her, it's not fair ..." and he's right it's not fair but life's like that.

None of this makes your troubles any easier to bear and I guess I'm feeling a little melancholic at the moment. Tomorrow will be better for me and I hope it will be for you too.

Well done Hilly. If you're really keen to get under 42 this year there's a mostly flat 10k in Epsom, Surrey 22/12 - there's a thread about it somewhere but I know there are no entries on the day.

wrong size fleece

There is an earlier thread called something like "fleece swap shoop" Can't remember who wanted what but it might be worth checking out.

Good Luck All
