ode to kicking this shit

Sorry it's still playing up so much Pavlov sad

thanks saintly, I shall be getting them to remove the offending disc this year. It is gone! Power to your boy for surfing in this weather though!! How absolutely fabulous to start christmas that way! I have my winter wetsuit out but have not made it in yet...I really really really miss the sea, my kayak...

My New Toy

saintlyjimjams Fri 28-Dec-12 11:35:42

Oh I hope 2013 is the start of new things. He's been asking to surf today as well - have promised him will try to get a session in next week

Are you looking for fun, non fiction, picture books for the littlest of people? We have vehicles, space and dinosaur recommendations on today smile

Another one of my grandmother's short stories about growing up in the east end during WWII - this time it's about the first time she fell in love (with a German POW - our family don't do things by halves!).

saintly I might pop out for a swim when the weather gives me some indication of calmness. Just pop in and float for 10 mins, don't need to do much. That's it, you have persuaded me! So, if you see a lone woman floating in the water, check that it's me before calling the coastguards to drag out a dead body grin I love your blog, it is always so positive and inspiring.

God don't do it at the moment - you'll be mashed. I was BRUISED after the last surf and I didn't do anything much!

Btw are you a member of the wild swimmers facebook group? I always fancy going on one of their short swims - if you fancy joining me let me know!

PavlovtheCat Fri 28-Dec-12 19:31:24

No, certainly not now, I would be that dead body floating if I did it now, hopefully the weather will be kind to me soon.7 I would love to do wild swimming, I am going to join their fb page now! I would not be able to it now, as I swam 20 (short) lengths last week and it is for that reason I am in this state now. I need to get myself back up to speed first, but as soon as I am able to swim more than a few lengths in a pool I am so up for that, count me in!

Not feeling too festive-the boiler has broken sad

This New Year, I'm making just ONE resolution that I'm sure will strike a chord with lots of Mumsnetters - to get more SLEEP!

Here's how and here's why:
