night all x
WHAT a tennis match last night! I put the telly on at 5.30 to do the ironing and I couldn't believe the 31-31 score. Three hours later... Interesting that they didn't take any gels or energy drink. Only the odd bite of banana and water.
Might start a thread on that on the tri thread.
Nothing for me today until tonight's swim trial. Knee not right after yesterday - but am not too bothered.
Wow - I'm afraid I think the river part sounds ACE!
Just done the most important part of IM prep - have bought foul yellow pirate t shirts for the entire Hen household . AR will be so pleased . J is the Artful Goose, C is Artful Chick and AR is AH's OH.
My Bangkok sis has been staying for a few days and is doing somethign Very Exciting tonight. Will tell you tomorrow but better hadn't just yet. Suffice to say it'll involve some MAJOR name dropping
AH - look forward to that... (name dropping!) and we will need to see a complete pirate family photo!! cant actually believe you are doing an iron man...
WT - will talk later - having a bit of a frazzled day - slept very badly - gordon gone off to Nick Hancock (small name drop) for the cricket which I went to last year but cant this year as I have to get up at crack of sparrows and take my ungrateful 17 year old to Bristol to look at uni... got meeting at school in a minute to look at the mental bus stop where the accident happened after the marathon - got 3 head teachers and some council folk to be there so thats good .. sadly its the mornings its worse...
then got another event at school... its so busy this time of year it makes you ill... and still got the whole fun run forms etc to sort out - thats 2 weeks on sat... eeeeekk so WT if I dont call today I promise I will tomorrow but your room is booked (its the little one I am afraid!!) you will have to move out of it on 22nd so Martin can go in there and you gals can go in James room (he can come in mine.. ) will be fun!!

Tu-Tu- Well done re the wedding but GOLF is not boring
WT- Sounds like your well on track, it wil here before you know it
AH- Your training is just crazy!!!!
Susan- Who looks after the axe or does this now mean we will be OK?
Have I missed something. What has happened to DIDDS?
I know - I miss Didds... but I'm sure he's lurking and just too busy to post. Hello Didds .
Now Coxy will pop up and say why don't I miss her too... and of course I do! She's just busy being a mum.
Now then - I will have good gossip that Jovi will be interested in... or maybe not... . And other stuff that I might not dare to post in full!!! But you'll have to wait till the morning
Carp night's sleep. Got my friend to his bike start and watched him cycle off into the darkness at 3.05. At 8.42 he'd done 45 miles so he's doing well. 55 to go. But didn't really feel like I got back to sleep. Then the cockerels started in the distance, then our cockerel started, then the dawn chorus... you know what it's like.
Just having a break from giving my legs a going over with the foam roller. Have had the thing for months but hardly ever use it. Hurts . Being nice tomyself today with no training - only PowerPlate. Ouch.
So who wants to know my name drop? Well, it's not exactly my name drop - it's my sister's.
Susan (SLIM 2010) ... wrote (see)
come on AH spill the beans your sister been on a date with Bon Jovi??
howard thats what we want to see!
I had a good but hard run last night, middle 3 miles at 9 min pace and it was hot, 2 warm up 2 cool down and I was on the last mile or so and some blokes went past in a 4 x 4 with green and red flags (dont know where from) and one hang out the window and looked at me and said yuk, he should have seen me up the top of the hill!!! But seriously, why??? Why do people have to make horrid comments when someone is simply exercising and minding their own business. Needless to say I gave him a wave, yeah with two fingers up!
come on ah, spill???
Remember me? Am back from Turkey - had a really good time seeing my daughter. Didnt do much running so am now rested with NO NIGGLES! So time to krank up the miles now.
Any news here?
When is July meeting?
Wabo - I'm so angry for you. What twats.
Well, it's a long story but my sis was helping last night at Elton John's annual charity ball. She was on reception,checking people in, then working at the auction, handing round mics and making sure that people who wanted to bid were seen by the auctioneer. Then handing out goody bags at the end.
Haven't had the full low down yet - will tonight when she's home - but the texts last night were (with a few edits in case it's libellous!):
"Kerry Katona, peter andre, jamie redknapp, shirley bassey, dale winton, holly valance, david walliams (insert rude word here) liz hurley, JON BON JOVI (insert comment about how well 'hydrated' he was at the beginning of the evening ), boris becker, kate beckinsale to name a few I've had to deal with tonight".
Then, "met scissor sisters guy, Lulu, Dougray Scott"
Then, " Dragons den bloke - Ballantyne - insert word meaning over-refreshed"
So Jovi - your idol was obviously letting his hair down between chunks of his tour!
love it hen, how funny!!
thanks for feeling my pain my son wanted to go out and give them some pain!
hi mr m and welcome back!!
Liz Hurley had a lot of powder on and does have a really nice bum
Jon Bon Jovi stood politely behind her until she'd finished dealing with someone else, asked what table he was on, then asked her where the mens room was. She said he seemed nice and wasn't up himself - unlike Mr Walliams. She said Peter Andre was sweet and made a point of coming up to her to say hello even though his burley body guard kept saying, 'he's BEEN checked in'. R didn't know that and said so and he just kept smiling and saying, 'but I wanted to come and say hello'.
DougRay Scott was her favourite. And there were a few people she was 'meant' to know but because she's been living in Bangkok for four years and doesn't watch soaps, she's been a bit out of the loop! Shirley Bassey smiled at her and she held the door open for Grace Jones who arrived late.
Lady Gaga - the live act - was amazing.
Tu-Tu Dont want to scare you but the Humber bridge half is a real tough one watch the hill at about 10 miles its a long one
Nice one Howard.
Welcome home Mr M
