EF - that's exactly the problem we have with our hours - we both have to work past 6pm, and all childcare ends at 6. It causes me many sleepless nights and hours of stress! However, we did both know that we would be expected to work like this, so it hasn't come as a huge surprise. I do sometimes long for a standard job without the pressure and risk though! Hope he manages to get something sorted.

PG3 - hope the move goes ok!

CM - great news on the water situation. This is going to sound a bit naff because I'm not sure how to word it, but has your counselling given you a way to reflect on the situation and your response to it, to try and help stop you getting into the same negative spiral in the future? Your holiday plans sound fab. Maybe we should set up a mums running club holiday house swap so we can all see different parts of the country!

Although, as discussed on fb, Switzerland is crazy expensive!

CC - you should do the race I linked to when we were in Switzerland last summer - the course is brutal! I think you should have as many days at altitude beforehand as you reasonably can. I usually feel short of breath going up the stairs when we first arrive at 1550m!

Caro - great running!!

CM - hope all your leaks are sorted soon!

Well that sounds like excellent news. Hopefully you can put the last few days behind you now and feel like you're back on a more even keel.

PG3 - that sounds really stressful. Juggling work and childcare has to come high up the leaderboard of 'things that keep me awake at night'! Part of the reason I chose to work where I do is because all my colleagues with children also have partners who work, so we all have crises at various points, and cover for each other. Although the thought of my small ones having chicken pox consecutively and having to re-jig both our work rotas was part of the reason I got them vaccinated!! I hope it all works out ok.

Camlo - your mil sounds a gem!

Hoggle - hope you've got good news on the job front. Love the baby pics, makes me feel quite broody!

I was about to go for a run this morning and then it pissed down with rain so I waited a bit, then it rained again so I waited a bit more. Now I'm thinking I just need to pull myself together and get out the door cos I'm being a great big wuss - right?! This is my only chance to run this week because of work, so I'm definitely going to go...when it's stopped raining!

Where is CC?! I want to hear about the epic race!!

My commute in to work was awful yesterday but ok at home time - which is probably the only advantage to working a really long day and leaving at 8.30 in the evening. It was also great during the Christmas holiday, which again is the only positive thing about being at work when everyone else is off!!

Stage 2 is very long I think. I'm sure she'll rest - she'll have to won't she?! I read some of the race reports and was stunned. Before reading them I assumed she'd probably finish, because why would you enter something you may well not get through, but having read them I realise it would be absolutely incredible if she managed to finish...and that she's pretty incredible to have even started the crazy thing!!

Do you have the oncologists email Caro? If you do, it may be worth emailing in advance of your appointment to let them know what the new stuff is you want to discuss. It's possible that you may have done more research on it than them - or at least more recently - so you might get a better conversation if they know ahead of time!

CC - it sounds like such a massive undertaking. I looked at the website, and it was pretty daunting reading. Will be keeping all fingers crossed for you, and can't wait to hear about it!
