  • I thought it was Hertfordshire where hurricanes hardly happen, DL?
  • [slides in quietly and leaves absence note on Meldy's desk   Hi everyone.  Sorry for being away for so long and also apologies in advance for not having read back.  Life's a bit bumpy at the moment - I'm not really sure why.  MrC thinks it's mi…
  • ((((((((((((((((((Snaily and family)))))))))))))))))). So sorry to hear this news and for your loss. (((((((((((((WIN))))))))))) I've been lurking a little bit but been too busy to post.  So sorry that there are quite a few WAISTers having diffi…
  • Hi everyone   Sorry I've been so absent - not being able to run has been a bit of an emotional challenge for me particularly as the weather has improved recently! Hope you all had a nice long weekend over Easter even if you didn't have any more ti…
  • Thanks all for your lovely comments   Indeed I will keep swimming. x-Rays are happening next week and I'm in the system for an MRI so we'll know more after those. In Feb 2012 I swam the Midmar Mile in South Africa - the world's largest open wate…
  • When we had complaints about Jasper pooing in our neighbour's garden, we took them chocolates and Lion Roar cat repellent . They're our friends for life now.  Gifts work wonders in appeasing neighbours. Sorry for my absence.  Some of you will know…
  • And there are other Southern WAISTers around... Well happy Mondays everyone - I've had a stinking headcold all weekend and spent most of it on the sofa.  Work continues to be stressful and I'm hoping to make a return to doing some extra swimming t…
  • My ex-hubbie moved out the day before Valentine's Day the year we split up.... My darling parents came over on the evening of Valentine's Day to take me out for dinner. I'd forgotten all about it til you mentioned the day of lurve, Snaily.  Just…
  • Yes, Spence - photo driving licence ID should be fine as it's not an international flight.  I once did a women's only 10K in Glasgow with my (then) running club girls - it was a lot of fun.  Expensive but definitely worth it. Poor Dotty Dog (((…
  • Sorry just adding to the angst - am lividly furious about some stuff going on at work at the moment .  It appears that I am clearing out everyone else's sh!t that they have done nothing about for years and years and instead of getting support for fi…
  • Hello from Sweden  Having a good time here and just checking in quickly before bed.  Have managed to stay upright in amongst some slippery patches on the pavements but mostly excellent snow-clearing, liberal gritting and some heated pavements  hav…
  • (((((((Sluggy family))))))) - absolutely the way we'd all want to go - peacefully and in no pain or discomfort.  As was said above - I hope you can celebrate her life. Podds - enjoy!!  I really want to do swim there - do let us know what it's like…
  • Morning all ((((Podds)))) - sounds really rubbish.  It would serve the Head and Governors right if you were signed off indeterminately with stress given the situation.  Wonder what they'd do then! I wondered whether GSD was something to do with …
  • Vibes for the Spences What's a GSD, onesie?  Sounds gorgeous anyway   I hope you'll all be very happy together and so good to hear that she'll be going to a good home. Chugs - I am in Cambridge proper.  As in staying right in the city centre and…
  • Hello all  I too am fighting a cold - sore throat (not too bad at this stage), feeling shattered, hungry and thirsty all the time.  I am having a week off from exercise in the hope of knocking it on the head.  And I am in Cambridge for 2 nights fo…
  • Hi everyone - sorry I haven't read back.  It has been a completely exhausting weekend and I've completely fallen down on my exercise targets for the past two days. Yesterday we drove halfway round the country and froze our butts off buying a new(e…
  • Hi everyone   I wasn't up at my usual crack-of-dawn this morning as my knees were hurting and I had a headache last night and felt like I needed a bit of a sleep-in.   I am hoping to snitch a couple of rooms next week, Chuggy, but I do need to kno…
  • Happy birthday FC6!   I agree in principle with everything that's been said about squatters' rights and would love to do that.  In practice, the security on the buildings is so inane that I can't get into most of them in order to take over the spa…
  • Which way up is that?
  • Yep - it is very bizarre, Chuggy.  The problem appears to be caused by one person "blocking" the system and I am very frustrated because it is not down to a lack of space per se.  There are plenty of rooms but some very complex moves going on across…
  • Soup maker, Spence?  I'm interested - what have you got? I am in the smoke today for a training course. Laters peeps xx
  • Wow what a lot of stress in here today! Hugs for all in need (((((((((WIN))))))))) And I'm going to add to the comments about management by mentioning that I have a new member of staff starting in 2 weeks time and no office to put him in.  Not e…
  • ((((((((Larry)))))))) - ouch   That sounds really painful.  I hope they gave you the GOOD painkillers .  Hope it mends quickly. ((((((Tubbs)))))) - sounds like a huge amount of stress at a time when you're stressed enough.  I'm glad you managed to…
  • Oooh there was a split in there which began with an "8" Meldy - you is well special  I swimbled with the club last night - a hard 1800m with lots of backstroke again.  Can't raise my arms this morning  Chuggy - yes, the holibob did do me a lot o…
  • I had romance in Dover some 20 years ago, Podds . Well, maybe romance is not quite the right word for it, ahem, . But I had some good times and learnt to windsurf there . Onesie - congrats on your first ParkRun and a very respectable time to boot.…
  • I recorded Wolf Hall and started watching it yesterday but lost interest.  I haven't read the books but I did study that period for A-level history.  Dunno why it didn't appeal on this occasion as things like that normally do. We are box-setting C…
  • Hello all I thought about doing WW or SW and decided against it because I wanted to make lasting changes to my eating habits rather than "going on a diet".  I've done WW before and it worked really well but as soon as I reached my goal weight, I …
  • Hi everyone Snaily - how is the TT today? ((((Tubs)))) - beginning of Feb doesn't seem that far away to me, tbh so I can understand you getting stressy about it already.  I would probably be the same. Thanks for all the kind words about my fr…
  • Morning all Cirque du Soleil is amazing, Melds - not to be missed.  Had the privilege of seeing them at their "home" in Orlando in 2013 - the memory will last forever.   Swam hard with the club last night - 1800m and lots of backstroke work s…
  • Some advice from cat-owning WAISTers please. We were recommended Stronghold by our vet as a monthly one-stop-shop spot-on preventer for worms, ticks, fleas and all nasties.  We used it on both cats for ages but Coco started to have real problems w…
