I've just realized that last time I posted I'd missed a chunk of your messages - I now know that DL is in the US with XB, XFC is home-alone and the miniYums is a baby policeman, and Daffy has entered an ultra!
oh MC I'm so sorry your mum is declining in health - the good side to this is her acceptance and how she is not missing out on family occasions. I know you will make the most of the time together and also you won't have the regret of things unsaid etc - lots of love xxx
Daffs that race is by the company that organized the "snickerthon" that I recently did - I do like these smaller events and may even join you
I'm a bit cross with my boss he has miraculously created a new position for someone who has left us twice (still in the same company) and it appears to be a higher grade than me which is properly cheeky! I have emailed him - I wanted it in writing in case I want to take it further in future (not the sort of thing I would normally do)
Mr FF has his next hospital appointment this week - I'm not really confident he will be getting rid of the boot judging by the pain he's had when he overdoes things- trouble is he's also now out of sick pay - yikes! we have organized a mortgage free period so that's a bit of help
happy birthday minyum 2
not the best news on the ankle - another 6 weeks with "Das Boot" he's a bit disappointed but at least it is healing slowly. They are not very specific with their instructions but he has been told to increase walking without the boot - and I believe that is what will encourage bone healing. so today he is spending some time in a normal shoe and will do that more (he only pottered about on it barefoot before)
Also his car is out of action but as its automatic he's also going to that sorted and start driving again - I think that will make a big difference
in other news I did a 5 mile race on Wednesday evening which was lovely (Cannock chase) although my time wasn't great but a PB because I've never done the distance before. Most memorable moment was a old guy wearing very thin white shorts and not much else - positively indecent! but where do you look....
you get about these day Pippi - I love the sound of your walking adventures
phew thank goodness DL is back my garden was dry as a bone!
nice plodding there Daffers you do seem to be very happy in your new surroundings
I've had a funny old week, my Mum had a stroke during the night last Thursday and seemed to have lost the ability to swallow so I spoke to the doc and she thought it only be about a week - but she has picked up a bit and took some food yesterday so I don't know where we are now! I worked from home most of this week so it was easier to visit but I'm back in the office now. Its like we are in limbo now, her quality of life is poor really but you can't wish her life away - so we carry on.
I have no races planned and not much structure to running, not even been to club runs for a few weeks - its a strange time
oh and I have put in a grievance at work - I know it won't make any difference but I don't like bad behavior!
ah I just popped in - and I get to see lovely houndies! they are obviously not fussed about fairytale hair
Podds Mr FF had and ankle realignment surgery - hopefully this will last a few years before he will have to get the joint fused. its a long old process of healing though
Yums so sad your sister has fallen out with your Mum, I do think we have to make an extra effort to be tolerant with our oldies (unless they are particularly difficult which I know you Mum isn't)
not much news here, mum is still with us, she's eating and drinking a little but seems to be sleeping a lot more than usual. I'm visiting as much as I can, having a day off today because the other 2 have been.
