That was lovely - thank you for sharing
Love cats :)
Showers take so much energy!
Actually thats candlelight idea is bad... The cat is attempting to sniff the flame... Again...
Curiosity got the cat! haha . . . mmm I find it hard to get the balance too John! I find I swing between thoughts being too slow and hard to focus to mind being super busy and hard to focus THAT because it's jumping around so much from one thing to
the next. Sounds like you have a good way of calming it down or at least reducing other stimulants or stressors! :)
I love candles!
Something happening on the estate earlier. Loads of police cars and ambulances flying past. The cat has now worked out how to open the freezer door. This is turning into an ongoing battle...
I did some other stuff today. I got my glasses fixed (nosepad replacement). I bought tickets for a football match. I listed some retro video games for sale on ebay at volunteering. Just going to read now.
Your cat is very clever - unlike mine :) Glad you got nice replies from your old friends; it can be hard to reach out.
Cool storm names! Your cat is smart. I'm sure she's just looking for the vodka. Maybe put out a glass for her in the evenings so she can relax!
Russian Standard was my brand. No ice, but served neat in an ice cold glass. Aww I quite fancy one now but haven't drunk alcohol for a few years.
🤢 Alcohol. Once my love & now a source of disgust. Glad you were able to get in touch with old friends.
That sounds great :)
I'm using a socket he can't reach now. He's switched off things before but never something that needs to be on all the time.
Ugh, that's crap luck. Hope you get a break soon. I'm sure your Panda was just busy.
You misunderstood. It was the app/website not posting my messages.
This site barely fuctions. It's so broken it's unreal. That said a panda did cheer me up last night 🙂
Well I guess I didn't explain it properly rather than you misunderstood, but you know what I mean bow...
I've had trouble with the app, now I only use MP on my laptop. It works OK.
Richard Herring is spending the day telling butt hurt men asking 'Why isn't there a international men's day?' that there is one and it's on 19th Nov. He's raising money for Women's Refuge link above
Check his Twitter it's funny. I think he's having a small breakdown at this point so give what you can!
Today has the opportunity to get worse. I'll do myself the favour of not listening to the local derby tonight on the radio. I survived a dentist appointment this morning without much trouble. I'll focus on that.
Official time will be slower because I started near the back and lost my barcode at the end.
23 minutes 38 seconds!* Generous typo
Official time was 23:23! Wow!
46th out of 337 runners. 8th in the 30 - 34 age group out of 21. Fastest debutant park runner out of 14 newbies.
Awesome! 👏🏻 🎈🎉🎈
Whooooaaaa! Congratulations, John! That is incredible! Well done. What an accomplishment & reward for all that hard work.
Thank you all for your kind words.
That's brilliant, well done!
I've been celebrating today :)
That's awesome! Way to go!
Good luck! How far is the race? Is it a 5k? Just have fun...they really are a lot of fun. I got hooked after my first one.
Good luck, John!
Yeah 5k. I'm consistently running 25 minute pace in slightly longer runs in training. The race is a hillier course so I think aiming for 25 is sensible. If I manage it next steps are 50 minute 10k and then 22/23 minute 5k.
Good luck! You'r nerves should disappear once you soak in how good you're doing! Which sounds like you're condfident in already :)
That's quick! 8:00 minute/mile pace is quite speedy! I'm impressed!
I know I always offer up unsolicited advice, and it's probably super annoying, and probably you know it already, but do a warm up! Run a slow half mile at least beforehand. Will make you much quicker!
Thanks Meri. People, not running, make me anxious. Blowing out my arse and generally being knackered in a group of 150 people I already feel like this 🤮 ...I'm very glad I've got running by myself as a safety net!
Will do Jeff 😊
You'll do great! Looking forward to hearing about it
The blister turned out to be athletes foot. I found some cream for it the day after. Hopefully it shouldn't affect me. I've caught it early. Got some soft dressing for my toe in case I need it Saturday morning.
Sorry to see you were not feeling good yesterday, and so sorry I didn't notice when we talked. I'll try and be a better friend.
