Group hug everyone ((((everyone)))). Sounds like no-ones had a great start - and I'm guessing SOLB hasn't even emerged yet after a very late night.
The tree stays till New Years Day for me. Strictly speaking 12th night isn't until next Saturday.
I'm still on the porrage myself but it's rapidy ticking round to running time.
Stay of execution! You don't have to chop your tree down you know.
Afternoon guys. I came down with some sort of D&V last night and didn't get any sleep. I'm feeling a bit better now and keeping water down. Might try some fruit juice soon.
by 'eck, I have to make an effort with children. I came into your house and said hello to the cat, then felt guilty about ignoring Anastasia and made an effort to say hello to her. Its not socially acceptable to pay more attention to cats than children.
My grandparents used to ignore us when we were kids. We were expected to sit there quietly and not say a word. If I tried to join in adult conversation then I got talked over. I really try hard not to do that to children, and Anastasia was very polite too, although I suspect that her offering me cake was purely so that she could have some too
You've caught me lying here trying to summon the enthusiasm to get moving. I have an oversized belly of which there's more than enough - so time to get myself out for that run. Enjoy your quiet afternoon - assuming Moo plays along with that plan.

It is acceptable to cats though!
I would probably be about the same and feel horribly guilty and useless about it afterward.
Someone tell me to get changed into running gear and get out.
Get running LR *cracks whip*
OK, I'm doing it. You don't know how many minutes I was going to do in the first place though. No more posting from me now, focus on the run.
Oh well, I got out to the woods but the run didn't happen. A few too many people about again and I lost my nerve. Just got to put it down to a bad weekend. Thanks for the encouragement though. I wouldn't have even got out of the door without it.
Hugs always welcome. I'm going to push on and make the best of the rest of the day. Hope you're OK with the outcome of your phone call.
Trying is the important thing. Never give up because then you know that things will never get better and you lose hope. Most of us would hide in our shells if we never made the effort to do otherwise
On these bad days, hiding in my shell just sounds such a good idea. Got to give myself a break sometimes but I know it's not the answer and not a habit to get into.
I guess one thing that's been bothering me was that I have backed out of one part of my plan which was to have a chat with my colleague at work who I have lunch with once a week about the fact that I don't always feel up to it. I've found this the most difficult one so far but I do need to face up it.
The second pearl of wisdon from me is that you don't have to attack everything at the same time, and not necessarily today. Do it when you feel ready, but don't put it off too long.
Thanks Caz. Sound advice there.
Did you get your planned restful afternoon, by eck? I've been a little more productive by getting my 2013 calendar orgainsed. Something I could do that didn't involve moving.
Sorry to hear about the d and v SC
