SOLB, why was I requiring relief? Also, busy much? Sounds like you've got lots done, though I hope you don't push yourself too hard. And enjoy yourself!
'Hi Mick, how's it going?
It's saturday night, time to get my drink-on!
i'm alright you know
got to drag my sorry arse around 26 miles tomorrow
We Have just run shakespeare HM -( our 238 th HM together ) in gale force wind and terrential rain - a bit like the good old days id say
The FM was cancelled as we stood on the start line, as part of the course was under water some what, and there was concerns for hypothermia, as there were a lot of new and in expereinced marathoners there who they felt were not prepared
we ran a sad 2:38, also had Phillip's full poncho on him which didnt help
but all in all a good run
Well done on the HM mick, pity about the filthy weather and flooding!
That's good news about your weekend SOLB, any ideas why your OCD beast didn't unleash itself? Why are you feeling ashamed? You organised something and it went well, isn't that cause for a little bit of pride? It's a pity you couldn't enjoy your own event, but I get that. It's hard to relax and enjoy something when you're worrying everyone else is having a good time time.
As for London...I grew up near London and have no desire to go back, I can't stand the mentality of some people in that area of the country.
Enjoying your kick-ass attitude regarding London SOLB, I'm sure you're crush it with your mind-vice!
The shame response? Shaming you into not having a good time or always putting others' needs before your own? I can remember that as a kid and having 3 siblings we had to share everything and when we didn't, we got shamed. Sometimes you can sit with shame too long, til it becomes more about the shame than the reason you got shamed in the first place.
Been to visit my eldest Son today (encouraged to go by MrsBD)
He is sharing a house with his young lady and a old university friend that he is falling out with at the moment.
His friend has given a large amount of cash over the last year (not all of it really his) to a bloke with a hard luck story, which was bad enough, but he has given him their address too, and the bloke has been turning up causing a fuss.
My lads young lady has mental health problems, (she seldom leaves the house and did not leave her room while we were there [ring any bells?] ) so aggressive visitors shouting and banging are not a good thing.
MrsBD provided a (real) cuddle which is why we went, and I helped with fitting a new fluorescent tube, so I did not feel totally useless.
I am back to work tomorrow after a week off, and not looking forward to it. hey ho.
That sounds like a tough situation to deal with BD, both for your wife and you. And your son, of course. Does he have to stick out the housing contract?
Just so you know, the legal definition of harrassment is more than two or more occasions of unwanted contact (which is scarily little in some ways!). One of my friends was stalked and the police took it very seriously and were very helpful.
I'm back at work tomorrow after 4 weeks study leave, not looking forward to it either!
That's seriously impressive By Eck, I can only imagine how tough it must have been.
I'm probably going to do Liverpool marathon again this year.
Rebecca I like the line "saved my life a bit"
VLM? SOLB I have just checked and it is two years now since I last did a mara. I may have to hang my head in shame.
I have had no news update from No.1 son, so I am hoping that no news really is good news, thanks for all your good vibes folks.
'Sup peeps, what are people's plans for the weekend?
A skittles evening tonight.
Good news 'eck.
Does the psych dance like John Sergeant?
Is there anybody there?
Or is it deja vue all over again
How was the run By Eck? It took me longer than I thought to recover after my marathon.
Got a 10k race this morning, whoop whoop!
