Apologies for my absence but I've not been allowed to borrow my laptop back and had to throw a strop teen fashion to resolve the problem.


I'll do you packing for you, M..........eldy. I might deviate from the list a little though with a few spiders and bats up your nightie  Sorry to hear the news on your friend Sue. Clearly out of the blue. I like Lady Sue's ethos of living life to the full. Something we should all live by~~~~~~~sue~~~~

Lol at leaving  the GPO to the waister lounge  Everyone should have a will. I had mine done during wills week and the lovely solicitor did it free and i have the fee directly to the local hospice.

((((sluggy and SM))) of bless. Not a situation that's good for anyone. it does seem odd that something as basic as continence wear should tale so firkin long to obtain. I hope your new place will have enough room for two puddy tats and waister visitors

Well runned MC. Hope your mojo returns soon.

DL, teens are barely understood creatures. Before you know it she'll be nice as pie  - teens, they mess you up. Poor student OH its a tough life

Sue, I don't read that mag either. Do you have a link to it ?

Pippi, the wedding at the botanical gardens sounds fab but I thought you and Mr P were already married

When are the intrepid ironers off to wherever it is? How are them poor boys going to manage without their mummies.

I agree that the penalties for poor/dangerous driving are insulting. Sadly it there is little respect or value placed on cyclists lives  - certainly if my experience cycling to work is anything to go by.

Westie - hello  Loving the Camino reports

An ekiden - whoever asked. Long distance relay. Its japanese. named after the post stage coaches. It was fun and i managed to run reasonably well. Not much to report here. Busy week ahead. Amongst other things I am going on a bat walk on wednesday and they have bat detectors. hope M......eldy isn't in the vicinity or there could be false alarms And if I make it through to Friday its porn star martinis with the running girls and then bridget Jones baby

Waist well my loverlies

morning  My apologies for my absence *;eaves note on the pitbull's desk*

You teachers who've had the summer off and are now tired will get no sympathy from me. If the holidays were shorter and perhaps more frequent it might be better all round as it would be easier to get back into the routine. Of course I do admire your commitment, dedication and patience during term time 

(((sluggy and SM)))) bless. Very difficult to manage SM and the carers. I like the sound of Sue's suggestion - the food labelling - not the weevil thing. ((((BFF and mum)))

Podds, I thought of you when the school uniform thing hit the news. I sniggered to myself  I love the idea of you being famous on FB as a pitbull one woman said she'd spent £200 on her two kids trainers... It says much about the parents. We have the same rules enforced for years at the minis failing school from a 'deprived' area. No major problem.

awww, congratulations on your wedding, pippi and on being a super prize winning photographer hope the achilles is on the mend

Go go go, MC. Enjoy the HM

Sue Florida is a fab place for family hols And loved the pics of the shiny new car

Go go go M....eldy. Dont fall in the canal 

(((DL's back))) How is FC these days. Did OH go to the foam party?

Daffy, I too have many questions about your disappearing knickers and so many pictures of them 'being flung' 

GO go go amandax

Usual stuff here with the odd curve ball thrown in. I always marvel at how people deliberately act in a way which they know is contrary to their legal responsibilities and bring situations entirely on themselves and then flap in the manner of a dying fish when it is brought to their attention and they are asked to correct the situation. Ma is ok. her bathroom is finished. Miniyums are behaving. No 1 is applying for jobs. I think it may be a lengthier process than I imagined.  Ive been struggling with my running. Even easy stuff is hard. I am hoping its just the humid/warm weather otherwise a trip to the quacks is on the cards. Today I am running an ekiden. Teams of 5 run the marafun distance in a relay. Teams are put together by the organiser based on their times hopefully ensuring all teams are evenly matched. That means teams are cross club so I only met two of my team yesterday. They are all lovely and its v friendly so fun should be had by all

Very relieved it's not one of your chums, podds. As you say life is precious and unpredictable

Hope you're feeling better, MC

Well runned, Becks

Bird took me out for afternoon tea yesterday. When we arrived a noticed my run buddy and thought fancy seeing Laura. Then I spotted my other run buddies smiling away. How funny seeing them... it took a few seconds to realise they were waiting for me. I was lost for words. Balloons, pressies, Prosecco and lovely run buddies. I'm a ??ucky gal to have such lovely chums I have a Fox taken up residence along the side of my garage

Good morning  Pippi, I love your description of Shetland & Orkney. I had no idea it had such history The pics are fab too. I love the peaky puffin

Good luck, Podds. Is it really the ironing this weekend?  Those clever boys winning those rosettes. They are gawjuss. What a proud mummy you must be

((((MC and family))) difficult news for you all. I hope you can all enjoy life as it is without thinking too much about what may be ahead.  Great that the kids were ll huggy after their GCSE results. Well done you.

*waves to Sue in Mickey Mouse land*

M...eldy, what a sweet ickle birdiepie

Sluggy, it sounds as though it may take a little time t settle SM's carers in. Happ birhday, sweetie pie Are you doing anything nice ?

How is Ned's running coming along, Mrs Farfar ? 

Pippi, I did laugh at your friend who took her wellies and cossie etc for her surprise weekend and then went somewhere completely different

Thank you for my birthday wishes. As it was a big one bird spoilt me. We spent the weekend staying at West Usk lighthouse just outside Newport in welsh wales. Wind, rain, a Tardis, Dalek, hot tub and prosecco and eldeflower gin. Perfect

Thank you also for the views on further education. No 1 is looking at apprenticeships. He'd forgotten he had also applied to South Wales Uni who wrote offering him a place but I don' t think his heart was ever in it. He's a bit of a homebird. Not sure what's got into no 2 but this week he's mowed the lawn, painted in the house and washed the car - all without me asking

I dobelieve bird is treating me to afternoon tea tomorrow

Lol at Alfie and Sky. Are girl cats generally dominant or is Alfie a soft hearted fella?

Good to hear that Sm care package is in place. Good also to be there to ensure they understand what you need them to do. Well done on making it half way through the week without too much stress.

Well done on manning the phones, Daffy. I know your help is appreciated by thse trying to sort themselves out following the results.

Well done, Ned. That sounds like excellent progress. There can't be many dogs that return to their owner when something far more interesting is going on. And as you say, he is friendly enough but responsile of you to understand that despite his friendly nature, it can still freak some dogs out.

Take it easy, MC. Hopefully it is just a tweak. Best put you leg up and watch the limpets

Well done on the run, DL. I thought I saw something on the news about it. Its good to know disruption is the norm when trying to improve things. Lol at OH being invited to a foam pardee. Will you have to endure typical student behaviour from now on - staying in bed late, leaving things all over the floor and so on ?

Welcome home, Pippi. I'm looking forward to hearing about your adventures and hopefully seeing some lovely pics

Sue, that parking thing is highway robbery!  

Podds, so sorry to hear about Kenny. How ridiculous to return him for those reasons. Those eejits don't deserve to have a luffly hound. I love black hounds And thank goodness the fine was sorted sensibly.

As Daffy mentioned, yesterday was A level results day. No1 didn't do especially well. No surprise to me as he hasn't put the work in. Spent yesterday trying to salvage something but not sure there's much point as he doesn't seem committed or be aware of what Uni actually involves. No 2 did well with his AS levels though. After a very frustrating day with No1, I spent the evening with mummsy...It was a frustrating evening too. It would be nice if she let me finish explaining things before talking over me and I end up explaining the same stuff over and over 

Today I am mainly reporting to bird's gaff with run and swim gear for a mystery weekend. I reckon she has a run to the local baths and a swim planned.

WAIST well my lovelies

Podds, we keep missing each other - either that or you're ignoring me  I;ve been thinking of you the last couple of days. Sunday I was at the Greyhound walks show. Lots of lovely hounds needing homes. But what really reminded me of you was the greyhound indoor collars in Pirate design and colours. Also I ran along the prom early yesterday Kent was close enough to touch Glad the boys seem ok after the sad loss of Sharkey. 

Sue, how luffly to be ready for a new hound and very responsible to be choosing based on your lifestyle and a rescue  I can't offer any advice really as i've only had a hound who was of course divine  Useless for anything energetic or guarding but a fab companion and so tolerant of kids. Loved hearing about the lurcher. He sounds wonderful

Well done on doing less, Becks

Oh MC, poor gibbil and poor son. Love the idea of freezing it for a proper funeral when you return. The cable car trip sounds amazing

Lol at SM, Sluggy. I understand what she meant. She remembered she had forgotten to take her meds although could you trust her answer.

Daffy, tell me more about the face pulling. Is it an Olympic event? I can do it as a multi discipline especially when I run. ceiling painting with sore arms sounds tough.

Did you actually get out and run, DL ?  Or were you just getting into the Olympic spirit? 

Westie, whose bed have you been sleeping in if not your own Welcome home

Any news form Chuggy ?  Is she running her french B&B

(((FarFar)))) Look after yourself. Well done on the run club running

Sunday I went with bird, her two kids and grandkids to the houndie and lurcher show. So many Cush lookelikeys that it was an emotional day. I fell in love with  2 1/2 year old Jake. A big black boy who was very patient and calm and loved hugs and cuddles...sighs. Aside from my circumstances not permitting, I'm not ready for another dawg. Thursday it will be a year since we lost Cush. I am busy painting at home to try and improve my surroundings. Unfotunately the house seems more of a mess than before I started.

becks F - just get on and do the duathlon. it will be fun.

Good to hear SM is responding to the anti bs, sluggy.  And good t hear about Alfie and Sky. I suppose it takes far longer than we imagine for rehomed pets to feel secure with their new forever home. 

Daffy, you probably are quite fit - at least to look at  If I compare myself to my colleagues and other friends I am fit. If I compare myself to run club members, I'm not!

You doing something special this weekend, M........eldy ?

Guess you're pretty busy with results at the moment, Podds -A and AS and GCSEs later? How are the boys ?

Becks -your speed might increase if you ran less   Although by that reckoning DL would be up there with Usain Bolt 

I am on leave. To celebrate I cleaned the kitchen top to bottom. Dear goodness is all I can say. I need a lie down.

look at me, I have proper emojis

apologies for my absence but my tablet has died again and I refuse to have it repaired so I had to borrow my laptop back from miniyums no2

fab news about Alfie and Sky making good progress together and not being too fussed about each other. Doggie show sounds fab, sluggy. There is a houndie one next sunday near bird's gaf.  Sorry to hear hat slugmummy isn't any better and seems to be deteriorating. How is she managing in her home ? Have things settled with the lady friends?

Blisterz, TOWIE land? Do you just mean Essex or Brentwood itself? Which parkfun do you do?  The answer to all your running problems is to go slower Seriously, I find if my motivation is low, a slow shuffle usually gets me over it.

Becks, I cant believe how easily they lured you over to the dark side of tri. Podds et al are right. Far too much running at 5 times a week. I reckon on 3 otherwise I start to tire.

DL, I lurve curry but rarely eat it. I am comforted to know that you are true to form on your running every day in August plan

(((mandax))) sounds horrible. Sorry to hear Pa isn't so good and that Ma is finding it hard to manage.

Daffy, surely you must have rebuilt your house by now?

I am loving your description of Murph being chatty, M.....eldy And the Pikey one seems to have mellowed as he ages. I guess even Tigers mature

Club sesh sounds great, Mrs fartyfarfar. Dare I ask why you can't even think abut getting on a bike ?

*waves to chuggy in her guest house/homeless shelter*

Podds, love the sound of banger bobbing   I must admit, I;ve never tried floating cheese. Have you tried Swiss cheese ? It may float better as it has plenty of holes. And fret not about the Ironman. Plenty of time left to train.

Oooh lady Sue, a Mercedes. you is well posh and what a lovely treat. Yes, life is pretty settled these days. I'm happy because I like a quiet life

Shall I fire up the WAISTEr bus?

Life here good but busy. Ma is good thanks, sluggy but she's keeping me on my toes helping her out. I don't mind but I do feel pulled between, work, Ma, the boys and what I would like to do in my spare time - running, seeing bird, Buddhist study and group etc.  Work is ... of 5 in the team one is off having had SVT and another fell over and dislocated her knee and broke her elbow. Still, ive managed to run 3 times this week - had to go out at 6 am for my 7.5 on Sunday as mummy had plans for me all day. I was  by the end of the day

Podds,  I can come and see you and da boys over the holidays. Just tell me when you're free

£2.50 is a proper bargain, DL

Sluggy, The idea of you being in the spare room stroking a cat conjures up an image of Blofeld, sluggy

I've had a good weekend. Wedding was luffly, ma was good and was relaxing to get away with bird. Any news from the mad one?
