It's all very redeveloped apparently this Madjeski Stadium, and seeing as Reading FC just thumped West Ham 6 - 0 it's clearly paying off! I can't wait to finish a race in a stadium! You'll be able to lounge in the hotel until I drag my ass over the line.

I am trying to concentrate on accounts whilst looking at pictures of the new series of 24 as well as of Windy on his hols in Australia, dressed in a sports jacket of all things, reminds me of Adam's Dad and his sports jacket that marked probably it's 20th birthday the night we went to the Opera House. I remember I fell asleep as well. I am also looking at web based CIW courses I want to do so I am trying to keep busy enough to stop my hand freezing.

It's calmed down a bit for Bob, I think there has been a little progress made towards staying together but the words "having a bad time at the moment" were spoken by Val, whether that's with him or something else is yet to be told. xx

A stadium finish will be a first, and as for lounging in the hotel I am expecting you over the line in under 2 hours, especially after a fortnights drinks abstinence, speaking of which how is the old tum today? Nowt worse than stomach pains. I dug some indigestion tablets out for K the other day and realised I used to be chomping on those things every day at A3, that's stress for you. Did I tell you i ran into the Bourbon on his works Christmas outing, Dai and the Widow Twankey and both sons who are now working for him. Barry was saying Twankey is a right money grabber and has cut his hours to 25 a week and is pretty much running the show now. The sons are apparently a pair of lazy twats and Dai is not round much. Anyway i now have the bourbon's number so have access to the hert of darkness xx

I am aiming for a PB for the Reading half which means I have to clear the line in less than 1:59:45 but I am training with no definite mile markers (my GPS hasn't been able to lock onto a satellite since July) and my speed and distance monitor on my sports mobile is a little too kind with the distances so it will be a surprise or a shock come the big day.

My digestion is a little better so far today, I am trying to avoid certain foods altogether and skip a meal if I'm feeling really rough. When is the wedding of the Widow and Dai? Any set date? That'll be one to avoid, especially if they have it locally. xx

Do you know I reckon they will get married abroad, after all Dai got married in Jamaica last time. I can just see them doing a Pammy and Tommy on the beach, twankey ina white bikini, Dai with his ever increasing gut sunburned to perfection and slathered in factor 2 oil, lets hope they don't have a hog roast! We can assure a personal best if we stick to just the one bottle of wine the night before, between us not each!! xx

Even worse would be a wedding on the beach with the bride and groom in full on traditional UK wedding attire. That Deb from Kiyokuni did that and they both looked ridiculous, she-man hobbling around in the sand dressed up like a meringue and him with a white suit on. They must piss themselves laughing at Brits on these wedding holidays - let's call them Wolidays - and so they should. I am allowed to say piss by the way! I can just see Dai's bit fat red face sweating like a racehorse mumbling his vows in nasal tones. That reminds me of Blur's Charming Man song. Must find the lyrics out for that one! xx

I am doing very well with my no swearing. I am, however, allowed to swear on my own as that cannot offend anybody but I am doing so well I am hardly even doing that, although Dan says I am not as funny as I used to be now! I have told him I will be back ranting but without the swearing as soon as possible!

That was a panto joke from a radio debate about whether they should update pantos for the 21st century. I liked it! And as a general rule I don't care for a panto.

It's Nik's 40th birthday today, I have just been over there with her present. Aeryn is on fine form but judging by the way Mark has fixed the stairgate to the wall I don't hole out much hope for your Christmas presents staying on the wall too long! I felt the disatisfaction of my Dad just looking at the fixings, I thought " I bet that wobbles when I touch it" and it did. Of course. xx

I am about to put a shower shelf in at home and it requires drilling through tiles, Dan was aghast when I told him! I pointed to the shower curtain rail and asked him who he thought put that up? My Dad supervised but he wasn't in good health and couldn't balance on the bath. So I shall be there Saturday, Dad's De Walt hammer drill in one hand, balancing on the bath...spirit level in attendance for apperances only, nothing I ever put up with a spirit level ends up straight.

Aaah yes the pendant. Therein lies a tale. I got it out of the box to wear last week and he had pulled an Armstrong on me - it was a 16" chain - thus looked like I was being throttled and the pendant lay between my collar bones. I decied to come clean and told him so he then tells me it is 18 carat white gold (not silver as I thought) and he would buy me a new chain and give the other chain to someone else, someone without a fat neck was my retort, so we ended up laughing about it. Anyway I am going to get a chain at the weekend, or possibly get the current chain extended if I can. xx ps 26th/27th it is

Why do they make them in 16"? Surely they are for kids or Kylie only? I bet you could get a good deal on an 18" white gold chain online. In some ways it's nice that men think we are smaller than we are.

Just been out to get a drill form Dad's extensive collection. There \i was in the car port deciding between a Bosch, Black & Decker, De Walt or one I know only as The French Drill.

My advice is to use only English! It serves you out better! Just pronounce everything properly and you'll go far. Of course you have the buona serra and buona notte (or ciao) and il conto per favore (the bill please). So roll your 'r's and say "ch" as "key" (such as in chianti) and "c" and is "chow", such as in ciao. I could do this for a living couldn't I? And point to empty glasses whilst catching the waiters eye and say "Oi! Batman!" or you caould say "lo stesso per favore" which is basically saying the same again".

Anything else puzzling you this rainy afternoon? I am bored now and growing weary of folding PB origami ducks...xx

I got a chain, not THE chain just a chain which will do for now but is still not long enough for my taste, may have a look in Brum next weekend. Anyway K picked me up at half seven, we went to the Ball for a couple then walked to DaVincis and were led to our table downstairs, place was packed with 4 silent couples making occasional comments about the food so we bowl in, order a litre carafe of white wine and sit there having a quiet conversation which gets progressively louder as the wine flows so by the time we have ordered we are having a right laugh and I have already said Fucking hell about the prices. The meal was lovely, I had a steak and Kev had partridge and lovely side dishes of spinach and parmesan and aubergine and garlic potatoes and all kinds of yummy stuff including pine nuts, which leads to a long discussion and then I am harassing the waiter to find out where pine nuts come from (and no I didn't call him Batman). The fact we were having such a laugh had an effect on the other diners who start getting more animated. Anyway we end the meal with lemon ice cream (for K) and brandy (for me) not limoncella though it's on the menu by which time I am completely toasted and we are the last to leave. I had no idea how late is was so we head to the Ball only to realise it was half 11 so no more drinkies so we walk to k's house, with Chelsea and stay up til god knows what time drinking vodka and watching the 6th Sense, even though Prison Brewak was on the other side- and I still haven't seen Windy in the flesh as t'were. Top night. Not cheap but great food xx

That is just like the night Dan and spent in il Canonico in Sorrento main square. At least you didn't shout over at the American's "he's having you on". You should have had some Limoncello, very tart but a nice kick! However, I am not pleased to see you watching The Sixth Sense when Windy was on the other side, looking very nice indeed in Saturday's episode as well.

Fenny is back from his holiday and apparently has no memory of that Friday after we left the pub...just hope no-one tells him about it. He was on the phone last night and I reckon it won't be long before he's back over so I shall have to make myself scarce.

I didn't do much but clean and DIY over the weekend. And watch 24 (we are trying to cram all five seasons in before the 6th one starts on Sunday the 21st) and Dan is madly in love with Jack Bauer, I have ordered him a mug with "because Jack says so, that's why" on it! I have also ordered one for me that says "the future Mrs Scofield" on it but I shall leave that one at work to wind Bob up, he keeps asking who that ugly bloke is when he sees my desktop wallpaper.

Just when you feel like getting dressed up as sexily as possible (yeah, right) and going out somewhere nice you find you are stuck in the middle of a 'dry' fortnight?

Why, when you fancy sitting in traffic looking to see if there is any nice truck drivers about, you get on the M6 and find it free flowing for the first time in ages?

Why, when you decide to take up the physio's offer of popping in to see him that you can't find ANYWHERE at all to park?

Why, when PB starts again next week, your fella has a bad back? (He'd better get sorted by episodes 09-13 I tell thee.

Why, when your fella owes you a shed load of cash his cash card is frakked and when you suggest he gets some from the bank using the old fashioned cheque to cash method, he makes it seem like you've asked him to climb Everest.

A weekend in London would be lovely, especially since you reminded me it was this time last year we went, but about as likely as the second coming I'm afraid. Not least the financial situation post Xmas especially since I just got stung by DVLA for 70 for not sending my SORN, even though I filled in the form to egt the rebate of car tax. My own fault I am sure, but a bit harsh, anyway the car is scrapped now so that's the end of it. If you fancy getting dressed up and going out what's to stop you, you don't have to drink to have a good time.

Well, I can't drink until Monday night and then again until the following Monday and after that when you and I meet up. I don't think not drinking is having any effect on the digestion problems, the only thing that helps is to not eat! I am currently not able to eat any fruit, not even in jam, wholemeal bread or any fibrous food, fatty foods, most vegetables even in soup as they all cause problems. I has white toast this morning which has made me better than usual but I can't train for a half marathon on what I am eating. I don;t know about the docs, it will be a spur of the moment decision I suppose.

Sorry to hear of the non-smoking not going well, but if K is still puffing away then I suppose it will be hard. xx

It's a bit of a conundrum really, I am fairly optimistic of living to a ripe old age combined with part of me not caring as long as I live long enough to have a couple of decent foreign holidays once E has left home! It's not much to aspire to is it? Especially when E says she is never going to leave home. Life is too short for deprivation and I have no willpower, and less as the years go by. I am only convinced I am not an alcy because I have booze in the house I have not drunk, namely 12 cans of Strongbow I have had since June, and I have not started on the sloe gin, save that for our night out!

Now you see, you actually want to live to an age when E is old enough to look after herself and you can have some you time whereas I have nowt much but me time these days and I reckon another 10 years would do for me. Maybe that's another reason I can't be bothered to go to the docs, if there is something wrong with me then let it get bad enough to make my future a foregone conclusion. You see, we all have unhealthy lifestyles, whether physical or psychological.

Are you still smoking? If so the question is "do you want to stop?" If the answers is no then you have to ask yourself if it's worth trying to. If the answer is no again, then accept it - it's not illegal yet! xx

Yes, indeed, my long wait is over. And doesn't Dan know it! I have actually seen the episode tonight, it was one of the six I downloaded but it won't spoil my viewing! And my 'future Mrs Scofield' mug has arrived this morning so all is well with the world. We have two Sunday papers so there was double Windy adverts and articles in our house yesterday, Dan's patience is getting a bit thin but it was very enjoyable for me, especially as the photos they use in the ads are from around episode number 11 of the new season which is when the maximum number of Martin Moments will be heard in my house!

Poor old Dan, it is slightly blanket coverage at the mo. I have fuly recovered from the weekend, I did loads yesterday and despite feeling gratified that I finished it all I am a bit knackered today. The good news is that the man is coming to fix the central heating tomorrow, well to make a start, then the insulation people are coming Wednesday so should have a nice snug house soon, fingers crossed. It does mean I'll have to have some time off work whihc is a pain, though my mum has agreed to house sit. i am happy to leave them to get on with it but no one seems to think that's a good idea, and I guess the dog will be there so someone needs to be. xx

Leaving people in the house alone is OK if you are paying them but if not then yes, you need someone there! So by the time we have our next get together your house will be snug? We will have loads to catch up on, I won't be able to remember everything! Fenny was at the house briefly yesterday, he has been to San Francisco over NY and Wendy reckoned that she had a miscarriage in SF! I have told Dan he needs to get the Your Missus Is A Nutter downloaded and put it on Fennys phone as a ringtone! xx

It has been a while that's for sure. Life has been very busy and what with being ill and all I have forgotten my Xmas break. I am a bit miffed having to use my holiday for the heating as I only have 3 days left, so I guess I had better book that day for Reading now! Your right, Poor old Dan is not the appropriate phrase, lucky he does not have any self esteem issues though! How is the stomach today? Did you research IBS, I was reading about it yesterday and some of it seems to match, mind you with your innards I guess you can interpret things lots of different ways. I did teaching practice with a girl who only ate fruit and veg and they thought she had some terrible tropical wasting disease but turns out she had not told them she ONLY ate fruit and veg! xx

I have discovered that I am fine when I don't eat so I don't eat! Actually I am forcing myself to eat when my belly rumbles and before a run but other than that I have no appetite. There isn't much I don't know about digestion disorders because of Dad. IBS has symptons that are the same as every other disorder but they will only diagnose it once all the biggies are ruled out and because Dad had bowel cancer and in 1% of cases there is a genetic link to bowel cancer I am not going to the docs until it becomes unmanageable because I do not want the kind of tests they do if I can help it, I certainly couldn't put myself through that at the moment.

It is a pain that you have to book days off and stay at home but at least it will be worth it to have a warm home, and of course you will save money on the bills, especially that murderously expensive electricity! xx

I reckon I will end up paying more for bills. I only pay 42 a month currently so it can only go up! They were trying to put it up to 56 until they read my meter and realised I was nearly 200 in credit so as I say things can only get worse. Nice to have hot water on tap though, not sop worried with the heating cos I have the fire which does most nights if it is mild and coal is cheap enough, about 6 a week. Anyway i shall be getting off. You have a great evening, give my love to Windy xx

Being back at work feels like a break after yeasterday. I woke up to find my kitchen ceiling is leaking through the door frame so have had to call the plumber back again, that and the central heating squealing like a banshee as the air passes through the system, mind you noone said it was going to be easy. So far this morning I have managed to knock 50 off my car insurance, but explain to me this - I went to confused.com who found me a quote from Sheila's Wheels, I went to Sheila's wheels and filled in theior form independent of confused.com and they quoted 20 less than confused.com, then I check out Sheila's Wheels and find they are owned by esure - my current insurers. What's all that about? Madness. Maybe with SWI will get a nice pink tax disc holder as well! xx

I think the best thing to do is always go straight to the horses mouth. I always get the best deals on hotels by cutting out all the websites that say they will get you the best deal. We did an experiment after I booked our NY break, the NY holiday I booked came in at 900 and Dan went to Expedia and for the same break they came up with 2500!

Sorry to hear the plumbing is taking a turn for the stressful! When I was looking for my 'Future Mrs Scofield' mug I came across a mug that had 'Proud Parent of a Plumber' on it. In the US that may be insulting but over here it's priceless! There was also one which said 'Don't tell my mom I am a bagpipe player, she thinks I play piano in a whorehouse in Texas'. I love a good snigger.

What's all this racism stuff about on BB? I have been watching 5 seasons of 24 back to back since last year and have no idea what is going on. Is it as bad as they say? I caught a bit of it yesterday when waiting for Shameless and had to turn it off, that blonde piece from S Club 7 was crying and it elicited a 'what are you crying for? You haven't had this much exposure for years. All of your careers are on their arses and why don't all just go home and...and die' form me which made Dan say he never liked a woman who didnt say what was on her mind! xx

To be honest i have not seen a lot of it either. Basically it seems that Jade, that Jo out of S Club, and Danielle, ex Miss UK, got her tits out and was sacked and is shagging Teddy Sherringham (what a claim to fame) are ganging up on Shilpa like a bunch of particularly catty schoolgirls saying she was bought up different, commenting about her food etc . Mind you that Shilpa is a prima donna, treated like royalty in India so she has no idea what is going on, and of course there is a lot of jealousy as Shilpa actually IS famous in Bollywood plus all the blokes in the house like her. Bets have a look at the tabloids over lunch, see what all the fuss is about. The gist seems to be that Ms Goody has done herself no favours going back in the house and has shown herself to be as tactless and gross as we all first suspected, never mind the money xx

Good old John, RIP. Any fitting would do as long as it was within reach! I hope there wasn't any damage done by the leaks.

And so to a day dominated by windy weather and Jade Goody causing an international incident. And the British press are the sole cause of this because if they hadn't devoted column inches and air time to this lug head then she would have disappeared off the radar years ago and gone back to being a dental nurse (yeah, right, as if she was ever one of those!). And she will get away with it because she, apparently, is of mixed race herself (yeah, half skunk and half human, and her mother must be the skunk half) and so it will be 'how can I be racist,yeah, right, cos I'm half race meself innit'. Time to leave the country! xx

The disco is at E's gym to raise funds and I would not go but they are doing awards through the evening for various things and E has one thta she was meant to get at her last do for most improved student. Her dad was meant to take her to the last one but didn't so she does not know she is due and award so should be a nice surprise. You are more than welcome to come, she does not need to know you are stopping the night does she, though she may make you dance! I will geta family ticket just in case xx

I have spent the morning like this:

Get to desk, mull over an invitation to Germany. Think "I must do the wages". Get on the WWW and check all the PB spoilers. Get on the Forum Search Google for height of Keifer Sutherland Send height of KS (5ft10.5inches) to Dan along with reminder that WM is 6ft0.5inches. Find an up to the minute photo of WM and KS standing next to each other, Windy looking lovely in a suit and KS looking like he's just stepped off the street in an overcoat and scarf. Sent to Dan under the title "I know which one I'd rather do". Think about doing the wages. Have sandwiches, dodge a phone call about the Germany trip. Lie to Dawn about having been studying hard all morning. Get back to desk and compile list of clothes I need from GAP. Send this message. Think "I must do the wages"

Who actually bought that perfume? I mean, who would go into a shop and think, "hmm, Jade's got a perfume out, I must have a sniff...hmmm, I think I'll buy that". Who, who who? No one we know thank heavens. And apparently it completly outsold the Beckhams' fragrances when they were launched around the same time - mind you, a photo of DB with his hand on Posh's ass was never going to shift. I presume the Shh was when Jade stopped writing as she had forgotten how to spell shit. I wonder if I am allowed to type swear words now?

No 1 she is the loudest gob on the block, unles it was meant to be ironic with people telling her to shh, number 2 it is the start of the word shit, which you do not associate with a fine fragrance. it's like that Paris Hilton's perfume, who wants to smell like her the old slapper? Mixture of small dog and sp*nk. Yeeuch. Victoria Beckham's I imagine smells like ketosis, and David Beckhams of sweat.

I have had some rather strange dreams of late, I'm only just remebering them.

Firstly, there was, what can only be described as a nightmare really, a dream with Windy and...his wife and kids! Terrible start to the night's dreams that one. Then, after waking up whilst I was sitting next to them in a basketball audience, I went back to sleep and dreamt of Le Drummond for the first time in ages and it was all the same stuff I have dreamt of loads of times before (and all better than the Windy dream as well!). Then I had a dream about the Reading half marathon in which I lost my way and decided to drop out and Vinnie Jones was behond me. Vinnie Jones? What on earth is going on there? Bring back Elton and the knitting machine! xx

I am here, I have just finished catching up with episode 14 of PB that was on in the US last night. Windy was lovely but Dan was calling him a geek and went to bed at 10.30 so I was able to watch the rest of PB with a smile on my face. I think Dan will probably stop watching it now they are out, I don't think he'll give it a chance to develop, personally I can't wait to see the torture scene in episode 12 when Sara is electrouted in a bath or water and turns on her attacker by thrusting a red hot steam iron full on into his chest.

Anyway, it looks like I shall be in Germany either the first or last week of February. Look at me, going on a European business trip! Do these people not know that I am not who I seem to be?

I was annoyed last night when I couldn't finish my run - too exhausted. I need more food but somehow doubt that'll happen at the moment, and my German friend was trying to lure me over by talk of famous German sausage, thank heaven's I only had toast for breakfast! xx

So what do you fancy doing on Saturday apart from vandalising Dai's car, apparently it has been parked on the road for days so we are assuming he is on holiday, maybe he is getting wed!! xx

I don't know about Saturday night apart from the drink aspect! Fancy anything yourself? I want to be pampered and made to feel special but I realise that is not your job! Yesterday I was referring to a photo taken of me, Dan and his Dad in May last year (one of the few that slipped the net) and he said "your hair looks nice there" and I said it's the same now only longer and he didn't know what my hair looked like now! He said it was because I always had it tied up but last Friday it was down and it's down about the same as it's up these days! Talk about feeling neglected! xx

Familiarity and all that. I had a similiar discussion with K the other wek wheni said it is nice that we go out at least once a week otherwise you would only ever see me in my dressing gown and with no make up, or snoring in bed!! I don't know about making you feel pampered, not even sure the heating will be fixed - but we will certainly have a hoot and not only does laughing make you lose weight - allegedly- it makes you live longer ! xx

Of all the things to play to me on a Tuesday afternoon, Bob Marley. Streuth.

And how is it possible to lose clothes in your own home? I've lost bras in hotel rooms, shirts in hotel rooms but how can you lose a t-shirt in your own home? I spent all morning looking for a specific t-shirt and could I find it? Could I f*** and now I have to listen to Bob Marley.

Anyway, Saturday night - jeans OK?

I shall remember the duvet cover idea, especially as my covers are changed so rarely! Dirty girl that I am.

Just learning about authentication and encryption over t'internet. I am turning into a geek, I can feel it.

On Saturday can we avoid all contact with old men like Sooty? After congratulating myself to Dan last night over finding a picture of Windy and Jack Bauer together, I was thinking of how I seem to have a knack for finding pictures quite fast and I though "what is my finest hour?" and winning the battle, by a long way, is the "nice pint of lager this, sooty" picture. I would love to find out who put that picture out there! Even Dan says "get it down the hole sweep"! xx

Sweep is off to Cornwall on Thursday, Sooty is usually not out late as he goes drinking at lunchtime so should be easy to avoid, and if not we will make like the bear (was he called Hoffmeister?) and make a Sharp exit, no I am getting confused that was a Harp advert wasn't it, the bear (the Hoff possibly?) was follow the bear, does this make sense, it's getting late. Your finest picture moment for me apart from Sotty was the montage of Ray Winstone and Gimli xx

Totally forgotten about the Gimli photo, seems so long ago. I seem to remember we thought Sooty would have gone home the last time but he appeared for last orders - an "I'll get me coat" moment if ever there was one.

That photo of Windy Miller (the real one) was quite good as well, when he's pointing at his high ceiling. What time you heading tonight? I think Dan is late home so I will have an hour to sulk before he comes home, I was in a right old mood with him this morning. But what does he expect? Dissing PB, criticising not going to Ireland enough and the mention of the boat trip on the Shannon, and all this with PMT. He's lucky to be alive. xx

Yesterday saw a new low on food consumption, 2 pieces of toast, 2 ham sandwiches made with that small bread and the world's smallest jacket potato for tea, so small I ate it standing up in the kitchen! I shall have to force something more down today, I have a 6 miler tomorrow in the early morning ice. Although I do have a lovely new North Face fleece to keep me warm, it's so inappropriate for running in but so good next to my skin first thing in the morning I can't resist wearing it. Plus it's white so I can be seen, always a bonus I suppose. Just hope I can finish the run this time.

So what time am I required to lay my moves on the gym club on Saturday? xx

But never mind that malarkey, I saw a woman/girl yesterday (as I was waiting patiently in the queue at Starbucks after blowing a wedge in GAP) and she was totally squeezed into low slung jeans (which probably weren't intended to be) with the biggest muffin tops and ass I have ever seen. Add to this a too tight jumper and a short jacket (ditto on the fit) and she looked awful, especially from the rear. And she fairly short to make matters worse. And she was strolling into River Island and I just wanted to stop her and say "look love, unless you're after shoes or a bag there's nowt down here for you". It's been a long time since I've seen such a bad look, probably since looking into the mirror as a teenager.

Anyway, I am here, are you there today? xx

Pulled a blinder last night and managed to createa proper uncomfortable silence down at my mums. My mum was talking about a friends daughter getting married and commenting that they were spending 15 grand on it, which my mum thinks is a complete waste of money, and I said well it's up to them, they are minted after all and my mum said, well the best wedding I have ever been to was your sisters and that didn't cost a lot. So I said, yes it was a great wedding but it still cost a couple of grand and my dad had to call in every favour he could for the catering etc So my sister is standing there saying nothing, and my mum goes, it didn't cost that much, to which I came out with the classic, aren't you glad I never got married? and my mum says well it wouldn't have to cost that much if you wanted to, and I said at todays prices you would be lucky to get away with under 5 grand. Complete silence from all parties. And I then utter the imoortal line, no wonder my dad offered me 2 grand and a ladder if I wanted to get married. I just hope it made my sister think, all the times she acts like I get unfair treatment when she is at least 3 grand up on me. And I juts had an email of G asking if I want to go out on Saturday!! xx

Also she is still on Prozac so me and K now call her Stepford. I think she just wanted a place to saty in Ironbridge, and can't really ask someone like Charles as they have nowhere to put her up. I have said she can come over with G another time and stay at mine as me and K can go to his flat, or they can have the blow up mattress! xx

I have just spoken to Dan and his plans for the afternoon basically involve bed and a dvd, which means he'll be manhandling and scratching my PB disc in the process. So there's no chance that I will get a drink after work as he'll be in his shorts when I get in. Oh well, I know I'm not one for bars and restaurants as a rule but this is getting silly. When I bought my GAP clothes I was showing him one of the tops and he said it was too nice to wear in the house! What else am i going to do with it? Wear it to work and get it covered in oil? He has no idea, at least he gets to go up the golf club, which is where he was yesterday until after seven o'clock. He came home to find me listening to Kirsty McColl in the dark - he probably doesn't know what a warning sign that is! xx

I have often patted myself on the back for making myself go to the pub on my own when I forst moved in here, and thus I now have a local where I feel safe to go alone and have a drink without fear of strange looks or harassment. If I had not then I woul probably only have been out half a dozen times since I moved in! I would suggest going into the Odfellows BEFORE you go home and then call Dan from there and say you are having a quick one and he is welcome to join you. Bet you a fiver he is up there like a shot, shorts or no shorts. Get a newspaper on the way home and you can sit in peace til Dan arrives, promise, that's what I used to do, and it's what a lot of blokes do. I realised early on that early doors drinking for blokes is a way of avoiding conversation xx

Maybe you have caught something from the disco, maybe there was more to that hot dog sausage than Eleanor just not fancying it. I was bad yesterday afternoon because I chanced some green vegetables with my dinner. I had to go and lie down for a couple of hours afterwards, it was fairly painful! I managed my hill reps in a drunken haze!

Still, I hope that you are feeling better towards the end of the day. I am in my customary good Monday mood today, although Dawn is in an evil mood! I am also a little hungover from 24 last night (there's been a nuclear bomb detonated in Los Angeles...very believable) and I had a triple victory in my predictions because the following were mentioned (all on my list)

1. Someone was offered a Presidential Pardon.

2. They wanted to see it in writing.

3. They wanted it "within the hour". That's a very common phrase in 24 - I wonder why?

Now for more predictions...I can predict with confidence that in tonight's Prison Break Michael will stare into the middle distance several times giving it his best Paddington stare whilst the camera zooms up to his eyes, thus making thousands of women melt into their sofa cushions. At least Holly Vallance is in it tonight so Dan has someone to look at! xx

I am not sure I could be poisoned by holding the sausage, and I cannot think what else I had that would set me off. I am hoping lunch will make me feel better, either that or throw up, in which case I can go home ill which would suit me fine. Mind you if I go home I would only feel guilty and would not be able to go to bed, which is what i feel like doing at the moment, with a nice hot water bottle. I was listening to Ricky out of the Kaiser Chiefs this morning and he was talking about the lyrics to Ruby on that tw*t Moyles's show and said he orginally wrote a line "there's a lump in my throat like a cadbury's cream egg" and I had a vision of that guy in the print room with 2, or was it 3?, cream eggs in his mouth.

I have just been trying to download that from iTunes but it's not on there yet. I do believe it was 3 Creme Eggs and I still can't think of where "what a great bloke" came from. I remember there was a first part to the phrase but not exactly what it was. Maybe it will come to me on tonight's run, that's usually where inspiration hits me, that or in the shower afterwards.

Dan is off to Glasgow on Wednesday - I wish I could be a fly on the wall for that, he won't know what's hit him when they start talking. He'll feel just like I did when his Dad forced me to sit with road crew on Christmas Eve. xx

I am really glad the running is going well. Long time since I had a Ginger Prince moment at the sight of a photo, must be a sign of getting old. Just had one of the girls saying she feels sorry for me living alone. I did point out I was very rarely alone and there is a lot to be said for it, in a been there done that way. I certainly don't miss doing someone else's shopping, washing and cleaning that's for sure. These young ones have no idea.

Good morning! How are you today, my mild nausea has subsided though I have just thrown half a banana in the bin as it was making me feel sick. I seem to be running a fever and have achy joints and a painful scab up one nostril, yeeuch! I reckon I am just run down, poor old K is too ill for work with his ear infection. However it is the Crown Prince's birthday and the end of January, almost, so roll on Spring. The Spring is sprung, the grass is ris, I wonder where the birdies is? xx

Glad the nausea has gone even if it has been replaced with other ailments! I think I am getting a cold, woke up today with a sore throat anyway. And a bit of a hangover. But that's to be expected. As it's Shameless tonight that will mean another night on the wine, Dan was saying last night that with the stuff we want to watch on Tv in the week at the moment, we will be staying off the booze on Friday and Saturday nights to dry out! And I was drinking for the UK last night as it was a particulary thrilling PB. Chugging it right back. Thank the Lord I am not running until Thursday morning. xx

I am too ill to drink - again! it is so unfair, I managed a glass last night which quelled the nausea then I decided to have something to eat so cooked a fish pie which seemed suitable invalid food, ate a few mouthfuls, delicious as it was and went to bed at 10 to 10, straight to sleep and a night of feverish dreams, kept waking up sweating, mind you i bet you did too after PB!! I am definitely running a fever but thankfully it is pretty quiet here and there is only me and Ade in the office . I am having trouble focussing my eyes as well so find it hard to talk to someone as I cannot maintain eye contact. xx

My broadband is feeling the stain today, I am downloading episode 15 of PB from the US whilst trying to get proof that Curtis is definitely dead in 24 so I can shut Dan's workmate up and try and send messages to you! As you can tell, it's the usual Tuesday must-get-some-work-done-before-five day here.

Too ill to drink is indeed a serious condition. It's like when you're too ill to smoke, you know things are bad. Sounds as if you need to be in bed if you've got a temperature my girl. xx

Well I am too ill to smoke as well so I really must be ill. I am just ticking along nicely, nothing too strenuous to do, I might get back to my newsletter this afternoon which means I can spend time looking busy whilst not doing much. I don't really feel like I should be in bed, and as the pregnant girl in our office has gone home I don't feel bad about spreading the infection. it's this scab in my nose that is annoying me more than anything. xx

But I will! In the meantime, what a great way to describe someone who has had the s**t kicked out of them - "looks like his bad day landed on his face". Brilliant. Hope you feel better after your walk. xx

What a great bloke...it comes from a very early Room 101 when Nick Hancock used to present it. I can't remember who was on with him but it stands a fair chance it was Danny Baker or Ian Hislop and there was a photo of someone on screen and Nick Hancock said something and then added "what a great bloke". The relief! xx

It's not ringing any bells, I can hear the accent and everyhting but it's not saying Nick Hancock, I will however bow to your superior knowledge. I always thought it was one of your phrases. I am feeling a little better which just goes to proe the drugs DO work xx

It was Nick Hancock, I nicked it off him, it's all coming back to me now. I don't think you ever saw it but had it second hand off me! I think he may have been slagging someone off from a cable channel like QVC. It is a phrase that has certainly been said about a few people that's for sure!

Glad you are feeling better. My video download has finished so I am back up to full speed. Time to download some music I think, can't concentrate on work now I've seen that new PB episode. Best not tell Dan I've seen episode 15, we are only 3. Now he's saying that he may not be going to Scotland - and there was me with a whole evening planned xx

Spoilsport, it is nice to have the place to yourself for a change. I am going home in 10 minutes, well off to the Crown Prince's Imperial Birthday party where our gifts will be presented and no doubt found wanting and then there will be general tantrums all round. i shall be walking the dog hopefully, not really in the mood for jelly and cake that's for sure. Catch you later, have a nice evening either way, hopefully I will struggle onto a second glass in honour of Shameless xx

I had a right rant at E this morning and threw a bowl onto the coffee table which slid along and knocked the Paris mug to the floor and broke it. I see it as God's way of telling me not to lose my temper. The Crown Prince's had a lovely party, loads of lovely party food all set out on the posh dining table upstairs with crackers and party poppers, the whole nine yards, far superior to the usual few sarnies round the kitchen table, plus a cake shaped like a train that my mum had slaved over - and as predicted he had a major tantrum cos my sister tried to take a photo of him blowing out the candles and said he doesn't want a party next year "because it's all too much" !! Then K came round and talked all the way through Shameless and I woke up this morning with a headache, which is persisting despite painkillers. It's not been a great week so far that's for sure. I may give up and go home this afternoon, especially if I can't shake this headache xx

We'll get you a Metro mug this year. Bit of a blow though.

I'm not feeling too grand either,I think there is something going around by all accounts. I have a sore throat and eyes and feel sick and faint. I think we will both end up under the duvet at this rate. Which reminds me of that advert where they are going to work wrapped in their duvets - that would be heaven. xx

Too much good telly that's your problem! Just kidding, the guy in the office here now says he feels sick and as we were working together yesterday I reckon I have passed it on to him. my headache has subsided and at least the nausea has gone so heading in the right direction. Glad it is nearly lunchtime though. I am ready for a break xx

I was thinking of sorting your TV out for your birthday! Getting a man in to put you a digital-quality aerial in and get you freeview at least. It's going have to be done, let's face it and if it's an early birthday present then you will be able to watch PB as well, see what all the fuss is about! It may be worth getting someone in for a quote. I may not be able to afford it but if I can then it's a gift that will keep on giving! xx

I shall get onto that, have located an aerial man in Broseley and one by my mum and dad's. I will be curious to see how much it is too. Do you remember when I moved in and you discovered that balancing the areial on the half rolled up blind got the best signal. Where was I when you and dan were at my house? xx

You were at one of them music festivals I recall - Glastonbury was it? With Deb and her sun stroke or sun burn. Well, if you want to ask your man and it's not too much for Magneto's wallet then I will gladly treat you for your birthday. I will come over when he's there if you like, see what he says. xx
