I thought peroneus was either a beer or a Roman emperor. Good to hear you know which foot is which, Chuggy. Congrats also on 35 years of welded bliss.

Oh Podds that's not a good combination. Either one is bad enough on its own. Hope the hounds are sharing the sofa

Wassup MC? Perhaps you and Pippi could job swap. They say a change is as good as a rest

Sit down and put your feet up Mrs Farfar. I'd make you tea but I'm not sure I can get up

Podds, I am aware of my quads today. It feels as though they may explode. Bird n me don't see much of each other and yesterday she announced she's doing extra work one to one with a special needs child. She needs the money but it it effectively means we will see each once a fortnight. In true Buddhist stylee I shall just sit with my thoughts and feelings. It's a decision for her to make without my influence. Still could be worse. I might have sore ribs and vomiting bug

Hi honey, I'm home

How very sensible of you not to run mid Luigi, m..... eldy but lovely to turn out and support. How far is it? Sounds a long way. Shame about work though

LOL at the idea Chuggy has them on the wrong feet. I need to know!

I have runned and survived. Tough day out but I'm pleased I did it. Was cheered home by my lovely run buddies and made myself panettone bread n buppy pudding as my reward. Not sure I'll be able to move tomorrow 15 muddy uppy downy miles 3:04

Morning. Happy belated big burfdee you mad old bat I thought you were much younger Glad you've been thoroughly spoilt

((((Sluggy ))) Good for you for tackling the social services. As you say it's in SM best interest she stays at home as long as she is able. I'm sure it must help in keeping her as well as she can be. It must be very hard for you but you're doing a fab job and SM is clearly loving your support.

Oh Chuggy, I had no idea you were struggling so much with your mobility. Well spotted m..... eldy that all might not be as it seems. Ditch those orthotics! How lovely the footie team cook and clear up. Perhaps if they stayed over they could clean the whole place

Podds, I think I'm only just beginning to really appreciate how badly bashed up you are from your fall. Woukd have bounced if you'd been drunk Hope your boys are helping out.

DL well runned. This could become a habit I had no idea OH was an electrician. Must have been the toolbelt that attracted you

Glad no one has been snowed in, blown away or floated off. We've been on flood alert in sarfend but I haven't seen Larry float by so it must be ok.

The day of stupidity has arrived. 15 cross country muddy, waterlogged, Hilly miles. Throw in heavy rain predicted for the duration and I'm thinking I've bitten off more than I can chew. Staying upright and warm will be issues so will keeping my shoes on! I will adopt daffy's race strategy and try to have fun but well aware I'll be in handful of stragglers crawling over the finish. I have a few buddies on route to mop my tears! Keep revising my guesstimate time backwards. It will be a run walk event where finishing is the achievement

Been nice knowing you

Morning

Fab news on Mr farfar. As you say, a proper result if he will be happier too Ned sounds lovely just a few manners to learn which I'm sure he will once he knows what's expected of him

Hmmmm, our resident cat wrangler must be DL as she deals with blur of a kitten with such aplomb.
I'm not sure Sluggy deserves the GPO

Podds, funny how Tom and Ned are similar. Perhaps you could have Ned come and stay for a few months to help Mrs FF

Lol at a typically daffyesque half marathon. Well runned, Daffs. The downhill bike commute sounds fab but I think I see the flaw in your cunning plan

Hello.

Blimey, DL, that theft awful... that they didn't take your C&W CDs. Galling that someone removed the cash from your purse but as you say, it could be worse. Hopefully the drops will keep your peepers healthy.

Podds, that fall sounds bad. Have you thought of doing the staying steady programme? It helps elderly people avoid trips and falls Hope you're not too bruised and that the boys are looking after you. How is Tom adjusting to you being at work?

Pippi, stop bragging that you're not back at work yet. Your turn will come Park run sounds like a family affair.

Chuggy, how lovely for Mr Cs friend to have your support at a difficult time. It makes such a difference. As for cleaning 3 bathrooms... are you running a B&B

M..... eldy, sorry Luigi is still on your chest. Persistent devil. You and half the country seem to be suffering.

Sue, it really saddens me to think people are mean enough to steal a sweet horse's blanket. It's pretty low. Hope Roxy is ok

Sluggy, I hope your sellers find somewhere they like soon. SM leg sounds nasty and these things can be slow to heal in older folk.

Farfar, I say no to working on BHs! Make sure you take that day off. How is young Ned these days? Any news on Mr FFs ankle?

MC that young lady has done amazingly well

I started work so purposefully this week but it didn't last long. Usual mix of running/Ma/kids. Finished painting my newly plastered ceiling. M.... eldy, MTB track has several routes ranging from Olympic to cissy. I take the cissy route mostly As long as I meditate before bed, I'll have a 100% record so far

Morning

Welcome Sparky. As Dr Daffs says parkfun is for all runners, run walkers and a chap at our local one did one lap with his Zimmer frame. So, no more waiting where us your local parkfun? I don't do kilometres- you must be a youngster as I'm still in minutes per mile and pounds, shillings and pence

Oooh Sluggy. How exciting to cruise to see the northern lights-clearly Newcastle lights aren't cold enough for you. Good for SM sharing her custard slice. I wouldn't share mine with anyone. Well, maybe DG, Elvis and Tom

Daffy, B&Q were open NYD.

I must clean my glasses I misread M...... eldy saying it's been a long time since she's had an early shift. ...

Been MTBing at Olympic park. Work for me tomorrow. I've also signed up to meditate every day in 2017. It will be bliddy miraculous if I manage it

Dear goodness, DL is the responsible adult. 2017 is already looking freaky! Not sure about your version of unexpected delights, DL. It usually seems to involve dead mice or birds or being locked out of the house

Chuggy, your evening sounds fab The oliebol sound as though they'll keep you warm - and fed until June

Pippi, well park runned. It must feel good to leave the youngsters standing I love the idea of vague resolutions

Ooh yes, Sluggy, you were a mudlark. Dirty girl Hope the coffee at the beach is good and that SM is on good form

Podds, hope you had a quiet NYE fireworks wise and that 2017 sees Tom blossom under your care and the good example set by DG and Elvis.

Right, tree to take down, a trip to B&Q and a ceiling to paint... Happy 2017

Wishing everyone the best 2017 ever

Podds, Tom sounds a character. How on earth do you carry out 24/7 wee surveillance? Keep setting the alarm? The lack of sleep and need for exercise us most unhound like! Are you sure he's a hound?? Is it how he is or a nervous thing do you think? Due to lack of pics I am imagining a tiger and a black panther

Sluggy, it sounds as though you got the weather I sent. Good aclimatisation as you say. Where is your cruise going?

.m...... eldy you have been busy. Don't know how you pack so much in.

Having spent oodles on tires a headlight bulb has blown. As it involves the removal of the headlight to replace it, Mr halfords here I come! Sluggy I'm doing benfleet 15 on 15 January. 15 miles cross country. It has a reputation for being hilly and muddy. So far the going underfoot is good but the hills are still there! All i know for sure is that it will hurt and some hills will be walked. It starts at the Olympic MTB centre so that gives you an insight to the terrain. Thankfully the middle 8 are uneven but flat!

Ello

Hope you're feeling ok, m..... eldy and haven't succumbed to the lurgi- spell check made that Luigi which if you have succumbed to him will hopefully be more enjoyable.

Podds, I'm sure you are the right one for Tom but what is he having trouble with that's exhausting you? Is he like having a toddler - nothing is safe/pee n poo training/manners/night terrors?

Sue, sounds like a perfect Christmas Well done for cottoning on to that - how many years did that take

Sluggy, I can't think of anything nicer than a SM content with her hot choccie n cake. It was glorious here yesterday sounds as though it was for you too.

Farfar, is a funny time of year for missing special people. Good to hear you were able to smile.
I have a huge unopened panettone if it's cake you're after... Wrong type of cake I think though.

Chuggy, love the sound of the different family day out. I agree entirely with C2/3 regarding most modern art. Talk about emperors new clothes. When is C1 due back?

DL, I'm glad you've decided not to be a stereotypical middle aged sofa surfer, draining the NHS. When does IM training start? Glad FC made it through Christmas with only a minor meltdown. Poor kid- being in foster care I mean, not being fostered by a mad NHS draining middle aged Lebanese woman

Very quiet here which I'm loving. Been reading/turning out/4 new tyres on the car. Just completed last long run before race day. Not run that route for 8 years as consider it a bit tough. I ran all the hills including the 13% one. Everything ached especially hips and back and someone put led in my shoes around mile 9. 13 gloriously sunny scenic miles. Bring on tapir madness
