    WFH so slow start and long walk with the hound replaced our amazing motorway system

    Later is undecided, but legs sore after running last night so may just be a few jobs and general pub avoidance

    Morning slow coaches. Slobbing at home, mutt to be walked shortly and ride to be had later. Will be making myself scarce later as OH has one of her friends over for a chinwag. Just a little grey and breezy out there.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning

    Slow plod to the office this morning, just couldn't get going.
    More optioneering today but would rather be in bed.

    Morning, slow bimble to the office, nasty cold wind today much to my displeasure. Got shouted at for standing up a wreath of poppies that had toppled, meh.

    No pineapple here maybe some banana.

    NWFH today but playing away with toots at 'The cream of Galloway'.
    That could be a locally made porn film but it ain't.

    Update later.

    Why are the MF's trying out different types of pain killer? Is he a volunteer lab rat/Hamster.

    ciao

    TDV away, Bambina at scout camp, Bambino currently out with a friend pedalling around the country lanes so just having a bowl of Crunchy Nut before going for a stroll with the Hound. So all good.

    Re painkillers - muscle has spasmed in lower back (went last Thursday) so in clip state Alpha but need to just crack on - painkillers aren't touching it, Ami are also a muscle relaxant so doing some stretching and trying not to completely blot out pain but mask it enough so that I can still do the stuff that needs to be done without crying.

    nothing seems to working - everything i'm taking is from my controlled drugs pack. it sucks, tbh.

    may go and fit new chain to bike mate from work is getting. bizarrely doing that sort of thing and - as I found out yesterday - lugging full tool boxes around is fine, but ask me to bend down to get dinner out of the oven and its bloody painful.

    its at that "i can't get out of the car because its too painful, just leave me here for a while" state of affairs.

    I find if I'm distracted doing something interesting then I don't notice the pain so much. It's sitting around moping that makes it hurt the most.
  • MatthewfalleMatthewfalle Posts: 17,380
    agree completely re distraction.

    i'm not a moper but its silly things like sitting down to have a coffee and you can't get up again.....

    Back in work today after a day off to recover from Sundays marathon.

    I need another few days off though as my legs are certainly dead.

    Afternoon folks,
    Working from work today, as usual. I haven't been running, mainly because I hate running and my knees are sh!t. I used to be quite good at longish distance running in spite of hating it. Thankfully not good enough to get picked for the school cross country team or anything silly like that. Running a marathon just sounds like torture.
    Just had a jiffy bag delivered to me, unfortunately no drugs inside it. Turned out it wasn't for me but for retail sales and a customer had put the wrong name on when returning something. Had a look and of the £24 he has spent with us he was returning £19.50 of it. Customers like that we can do without. So glad I don't have to deal with those idiots any more, now I'm the idiot. I mean customer, now I'm the customer.
    Anyway, more food and another cup of tea seem to be in order.
    Onwards and upwards...

    So, how did you get on? Worse/better than expected? Nice arses to follow?

    More year end madness at work but it should get better after today. Last night's dinner to celebrate Stropteen passing her driving test was really good - the restaurant was serving 'authentic Indian street food' - well the after effects today were pretty authentic.

    Onwards to more number torturing.

    Manchester!

    Finished in 5hrs 28m. Not the fastest time in the world but I managed to run the entire course rather than walk a few miles as most people did.

    Better or worse? Probably better than I expected in terms of my physical state at the end.

    Still a bloody good effort - well done that man.

    Have some pork scratchings of celebration.

    is it just the MFs or has a week of back pain added to single parenthood added to a slight amount of controlled drug abuse made the MFs even grumpier than normal?

    Maybe there has been some contra-indications. It's probably your kidney's packing up.
    Perhaps Edwyn's premium snake oil would have been more effective.

    Sorry HD, in my dismissal of running and such like I forgot to say well done. I still think you must have several screws loose to do such a thing but respect all the same.
  • hopkinbhopkinb Posts: 6,088
    Nearly there.
    Have a bit too much diazepam from your bag of goodies MF's. They're good with back spasms.

    Nah; well aimed boot. Size 12. 11 is too little and 13 is too much.
