anyone else for a bit of spotted dick????...
gastank, i have visited the sock thread....now worrying about buff situations that could occur
i am in the 'low danger' section of sock problems i have decided. i keep strict regulation of my sockies with military order. my lighter colour socks have been worn less as i have black Nikes. pastel colour socks i decided early on were not aesthetically pleasing with black trainers thus leading me to purchase black socks. as i only have 2 pairs of these, my risk of 'sock lossage' (is this even a word) is minimised.

nice one phantom
gastank, this topic could be discussed in some great depths you knw*nods head approvingly and gets clipboard and centrifuge machine out of shed to mimic washing machine centrifugal force*
do you think gastank that paler colour socks as with lighter weight objects will move to the top of the machine much as denser objects (socks darker in colour) will be affected by centripetal acceleration and be moved in a radial direction?
EM? now im really getting into this* dons physicist spectacles to look the part*
gastank, perhaps the simple but efficient useage of a sock colour divider recepticle placed in a prominant but strategic position in the household would eliminate premature sock seperation-(PSS)?.....*goes deep into thought with calculator and several rulers*.........(the calculator is merely to make me look clever*
Good Morning CRAC team.
Hope we are all well this morning and nobody else has come down with the lurgy or any injuries.
Happy running to anyone who gets the chance.
Run club for me tonight, Hopefully.
Have a good day friends.

EM - English mustard , when accelerated MSD is experienced due to introduction of small animal into the household, "baiting" a sick trap with a light spread of EM discourages future sock theft sock receptacle good thinking, did try something similar for sick and gym kit, did decrease MSD but increased SCT as was no longer considered part of main washing throughput and was then prioritised BELOW whites!!!!
WAIT !! whats SCT?
Morning franny, serious talk here about MSD.....join in please and out my mind at rest tht these guys arnt making me crazy
Peg is interesting, but need to be careful not to cause fouling and plucking of other clothes and must be able to withstand the rigours of the spin cycle - I think I'll have investigate a bit more By Eck to ensure correct material which does not cause damage...
Pleased I was watching Sherlock on iplayer last night and not having to take part in the sock experiments.
Ummmm, how about some scones with clotted cream and raspberry jam? Haven't had those in a while and the weather here is just like Spring. Mild and sunny today. Am preping for tonight's class at the moment but hope to get out for a run before I pick the kids up from school this afternoon.
Mind you, sticky toffee pudding and cheescake are never refused either....
Franny- Enjoy your club run tonight.
LLB- I am sure you will be fine in your Marathon - are you going to let us know the time you are going for?
Mathschick- How is the swelling today?
Phantom- Thnsk for the mans perspective on Dr's- I am really scared of them & would rather not go tp the specialists. At the moment I am unable to make an appointment until later in the week anyway due to the starnge NHS system.
Gastank-I am going to have to look up this scock thread that got you all so excited last night.
byeck-Well done on your double run last night.
I decided to go for a run when I arrived at my office this morning so I had a nice 5.6 mile run in about 42 minutes which was good. As we have a shower in the office I bought a change of clothes,but, forget a top so had to go and buy a shirt!!! Managed to get a £4 jumper that fitted me and it was a small size!!!
AF - I 'll make the changes to the race list. I've read 'The island' and really enjoyed it. I love reading novels about different places while I'm actually there. It really brings the novel alive. Sorry you have to wait for another appointment. Sounds like there is nothing to worry about though.
Phantom - Good luck at the dentist's.
Mathschick - sorry to hear your foot is swollen. It's hard to keep off of it when you are teaching all day. Take care!
Well done on all your runs folks! I haven't had a chance yet this week but hope to run tomorrow evening. Daughter's swimming competition has been postponed (it's amazing how often this happens here) so it is one less thing for us to worry about this weekend. I managed to buy a couple of things for middle son last night after staying at school a bit late but I'm having to buy from all my family in England and there is still stuff to get. He may have to have some presents tomorrow and some at his party sleepover. I also managed to buy myself a new pair of jeans (much needed) and was pleased I could squeeze into a 10! (which is very small for me and my previously huge bum.)
Anyway, presentation thingy tonight at school and music exams tomorrow.
Have a good day friends!
byeck-That is a feast! Please can you save me some flapjacks for the weekend?
Jude size 10 what a petite lady you must be. Good luck with the presentation thingy.
Wow! By"Eck - wish I could pop over to yours. I love everything on your menu.
AF - thanks!
Okay, I think the party tonight is at Byecks! We're all coming to gate crash your house. We're honestly not that demanding so cups of tea/ hot chocolate around the kitchen table will be perfect whilst we munch through your baking day.
AF - good going on the run and the new jumper.
Jude - you are an amazing women... how do you keep it all straight in your brain.
Have done my 5 miles and am off to get the kids.
I've been on low mileage runs since the beginning of Dec cos I haven't been happy with the dark nights. But next week I start up building up my LSR again so i've got a good base to begin my training plan in Feb.
afternoon all, AF i know lots of people dont like Drs etc but we all mean well -honest!!....spesh whn i get to stick needles in people
mmm yummy, lots of scrummy things on trolley then! i'll have any of it...i usually make flapjack for runs so must remember to do some for next week ! AF, i think i will be about 4:40...but maybe longer with fatigue so shall we say 4:50? thats reasonable for my first id say.
jude, i have nightmares with clothing, jeans are the worst ans i have one pair from next kids that fit age 10 and a pair from DP size 4 ...im hanging on to them for dear life as i cant find anymore that fitmiss llbs clothes are of a size now that we can share some things so thats handy indeed
ecky , glad you gor sorted at docs-you are on the mend already chuck(((((((hugs)))))))))))))
by'eck the sock theory has become rather interesting hasnt it?
