Sounds like a PMT day today for you. The lipcolour is so much more difficult to get off the skin than it is the lips. What's that all about? I have been on the go all morning, as soon as got in I had to go out in the van (well, after I had downloaded last night's recap of Prison Break from the US - have to get my priorities right! - they are all on the run and Michael's (Windy) would be girlfriend is under threat of her life and his best mate (cell mate) Sucre looks to have dobbed them in, and his brother Lincoln's pissed off to get his son...) and then I was off to help Bob move a sofa which was far too big for the van and stuck out more than it went in. Cue us with the van doors open and Bob sitting on the sofa trying to weight it down. Another glamour filled day for me. Sod it, I'm going online to get me a Tiffany necklace xx.

I did not see it, I was in a very bad mood last night and didn't think I could sit through that without blowing my stack. The physio called and I wouldn't talk to him and he left a message saying that he would try and get an answer for me about my scan today. But no word so far. Anyway, Dan's mate Brett came around unannounced last night (who he used to work with at his old job in Shrewsbury). We have never met, just exchanged unpleasantries to each other via Dan. So I wasn't best pleased, especially as I had just woke up from one of my sudden fatigue sleeps and looked awful so now he'll go back and tell Dan's old workmates I am a right old boot, (cos that's the sort of guy he is, fancies himself something rotten).

So what can they do if you refuse to go? Will you get your brain scan? And why do they think it is bone disease? At the end of the day all you want is to get back to running, I cannot fathom how it has come to this when all you had was a bad toe FFS! I wonder whether if you stopped seeing all these so called specialists and trusted your own body maybe you could get back to being an old plodder and some or all of these symptoms might disappear. I'm not saying they are psychosomatic but I can't help feeling they are somehow tied in with the grief of losing your dad and have taken over in some way the emptiness he left in your life. Anyway what do I know, I am just trying to understand all this. Does this at least mean MS is off the menu? xx

I would like to run in Paris as well, around the park by the Tower would be lovely. I have been to the Physio and laid my cards on the table, how the thought of seeing anyone who has anything to do with metabolism just freaks me out because of the guy I saw back in the day when I wasn't eating properly and how he reduced me physically and mentally to pieces and how, if the physio couldn't see a connection between numbness in the legs and metabolic bone disease then I couldn't contemplate going for the tests because I would only have to have a comment about needing to lose weight and it would tip me over the edge. I found it very hard to talk about it but to his credit he managed to coax some of it out of me, how I've had avery negative self image ever since and won't have photos taken and positivley sewat when I have to have myself weighed in case I find out what it is. I had a bit of a cry and he was very sweet, and he told me I was a good girl who didn't deserve to feel the way I do and should go and get some help and not rely on running soley to help take away all my negative thoughts about myself and all the stress I 'd been through. It was very useful (even though I know most of it) and he has asked me to do a few things and report back to him. As I said to him when I went in, this is the day you find out I am a nutcase...but he was the onlt objective person I could talk to so he got the short end of the stick! x

What a Wednesday next week will be, I have so much to squeeze into that day.

How much cheese? Well, mate, zero now but I am going to Paris soon so put me down for a few Croque Monsieurs.

What a waste of time this is. Even if they say I have any kind of bone disease I cannot see how it would cause my symptoms. They will be going some way to convince me, so far indeed that I would say it would be impossible.

Dan is working near me now and popped in for a tea yesterday, didn't say thanks for his brew and found the desktop image of Windy a little uncomfortable I reckon. I don't think he'll be popping back again! xx

Beautiful picture of the moon, I have added it to our October images page where Ray Gimli still takes pride of place!

This afternoon has taught me that there is a lot of nutters out there. Our message board may be above some people's heads but at least we're not dangerous!! If I was ever famous I wouldn't go near the internet with a bargepole. Some of the things posted about Windy - "his parents obviously took him for gay from the moment he was born giving him a name like that" (all this and he's named after his father who was also named after his father - cut to the Royale Family when Jim said "well, it's about time we put an end to all this nonsense then isn't it" when Dave said he was called after his dad and his granddad etc. Plus, it's unsettling to know that there are some women out there who are quite happy to put up with the object of their, quite frankly terrifying, desires being gay but the moment having a black father comes into it all bets are off!! Bizarre and scary. Although one posting made me laugh - "I watch Prison Break everyweek and always have a Jizz"!! Made me think of sending them a photo of our wash bag.

I wonder what would be posted about us on t'internet if we were famous? After your Mentoring seminars there would definitely be gay rumours.

Speaking of Daves, (see above in this ranting message) there was a dog on Dog Borstal last night who was called Dave. That meant a lot of "Hello Daaave" and "your my wife now" from me. Much to Dan's annoyance xx

Well, I am glad you had a better morning, I was thinking of you. Any ideas what is causing the trouble? It's not something I can even comprehend I'm afraid. You can tell me as much or as little as you like about it, and if there is anything I can do to help then you've only got to ask.

I hope that you had a nice glass of wine and a relax with Ray last night. I raised a glass to Dad, it would have been his 69th birthday yesterday.

So, we are both champing at the bit to get away, for different reasons. Today I had an encounter with a decorator that nearly made me blow my stack. I had my mom and Tina both trying to keep a lid on me. I come into work and have to ask Dawn and Bob if it's just me being over sensitive or have I reached my patience limits? Last week the docotr asked me if I checked my breasts (whilst I was lying prone in the scud) and I said no and got the usual lecture and I nearly said "you are mistaking me for someone who wants to live a long life"!! xx

Messy work, that was the problem with me at school. Always getting picked on by the teacher for it and in one memorable occasion being totally humiliated for it, although the worst insult I ever heard about messy work was directed at another student who had to endure his work being described as a cross between a spider crawling over the page and an abortion!! Teachers can be such bastards. I remember one who made you repeat the same piece of work again if you so much as missed out a full stop, some boys were still doing the first piece of work a year later. She ended up being declared insane as I recall...

The only thing I can think of with E is that she is being bullied, but I know that you will have explored that path already. Let's hope half term brings some sort of conclusions. In the meantime, any oics that would cheer you up? Let me know and I will get them for you!! x

Well it is meant to be a 10 minute consultation which is why he has given me the last appointment I reckon. He keeps getting E to do stuff again and she has been humiliated by him, and now her class mates though i know for a fact she is not the messiest. I have not yet told her teacher that I am a teacher so will save that one for tonight if he tries to patronise me again in his soft Irish lilt old Colim or whatever Celtic twattery he is called!

I have just been in the shed getting some old core out. It's probably home to rats and all sorts in there. As I was hurling out some old tat with Bob, up comes Doug saying "there's some black bloke in the shop who wants to talk to you". As I was up to my eyes in oil the response was "unless it's Wentworth Miller's Dad I am not interested"...and he went and asked him!! Priceless.

I shall try and get some good pics when I have a moment. And the biscuit house - ours would have better foundations than that - it just goes to show that you can't use wafers as breeze block substitutes! xx

Such a glamorous life scrabbling round in the shed! I have just sent K a snotty e mail. He upset me by telling me that he never had to tell his daughter more than twice and she would behave and then said Don't confuse giving with loving - so quite frankly deserves all he gets. Talking of biscuits I am off to the cash and carry and will be about 30 minutes or so, depending on the moochability of Bookers xx

I am guessing that the moochability of Bookers is fairly low on the MS (Moochability Scale). My fave shops for a mooch are hardwars shops and shops that just sell string and rope. Fascinating.

I will look for some more photos when I have a mo, this glamorous life in the shed is sometimes too much to bear. x

Ended up getting sidetracked into a mooch around matalan, well a semi-mooch having already cased the joint on Saturday, I just needed to return some school trousers I bought E that were too small, and whilst there thought I may as well get her another pair and lo and behold they were half price but I did not realise til I got to the checkout and di not realise that the clothes I got in there Saturday were alos half price. Bizarre, not thta they were just that I didn't notice! Bookers could have mooch potential if I ever needed to actually build the house of biscuits xx

Well, I have just had a real old Tony Soprano moment outside on the pavement in front of the Bing...sorry the Three Cups. A notorious gambler and tat man, known as Gerry, has been after me for 600 notes, on top of 1500 he has already had and stiffed me on. A full and frank exchange of views was aired including me saying that I didn't believe a word he said and ignoring the offer of his log book on his peugeot estate and that his grandsaughter had tried to kill herself, and refusing to help him anymore. I feel very guilty as I have always had a soft spot for him but enough is enough. Feel guilty now. xx

Norman Garderobe - Landlord Brenda - ex wife Argos - the dog Chubby Knees - Barman Mick Signals - Drayman Gary - regular and coach driver Basil Pesto - local and restauranteur Snowball - local Mr Lowe - locak and white owner of Chinese Takeaway Dai Young - local Welsh truck driver Wilfreda Beehive - local

As for the Dave Armstrong collection we can add a Tony Drummond collection to that as well, big jumpers jammed into jeans and white Travel Fox trainers.

So it was Steve (Penny's erstwhile boyfriend)'s patrty on saturday to which me and Kev had an invite. Having initially decided not to go as knew Penny would be there K tells me on Thursday night that steve has bought a new house in Ironbridge and has said P can move in with him on the proviso that a) she does all the cooking and cleaning b) she buys all the food and c) she gives him 40 a week! I was pissing myself and K said he thought it was outrageous making demands like that, too which I retorted "well she shouldn't be such a lazy sponger, she's been living off blokes since she left her hubby and has not had a proper job in years" So that was my mind made up, had to go and check out the atmosphere. Apparently she organised all the decorations and had hung pics of him all over the pub and had a collection for him so when she pitched up I ignored her and she was flapping about, and sarah was with her (whose husband married her and then she subsequently discovered he had been having an affair for 3 years) so could have cut the atmosphere like a birthday cake - excellent. The best thing of all is I realised how freakign boring the Ball can be, Charles droning on about something and nothing, Sooty perving at all the women and wondering why he is single, Ange IMGDTWB and Dave going on about the puppies, me and K looked at each other about half ten and just got up and left, though we did see Steve's speech in which he thanked everyone EXCEPT penny, which gave me the chance to wander past and say, hwo awful for him to not even mention you, before I buggered off home! xx

That sounds like an excellent exit! I would be proud of that one.

The trouble with the Ball is everyone is in there all the time, every night by the sounds of it, the regulars are like the fixtures and fittings in there. I have those pictures of Penny I put on the forum the other week saved onto the server as twat.jpg! I am surpprised you put in an appearence but it was worth it!

Me and Dan are logging our really bad sweaing outbursts in order to shame us into improving ourlanguage in the new year. The criteria for entry into the log has to be an extreme sweaing reaction to something relatively trivial. Such as the other day when I dropped something on the floor and said "c**t". Last night saw a classic from Dan when he was sick of making mistakes doing his Arrow Puzzle and said "I've made a right pig's cock out of that"!! I shall have to post he completed log on the website. So you have to pull me up in Paris as I will need to enter any outbursts!

Just having a spot of something, not sure where this morning went. Have you still got the Paris brolly if we are forecast rain, still don't have a waterproof coat! Mind you more rain means more bar stops. May pop and get a mac after work as E is going trick or treating with Kellie, much excitement. I guess I need to think about packing, shall no doubt stand in front of the wardrobe with a bemused expression for a while then give up, and I need a suitcase. I am frozen by the enormity of the task in front of me I reckon, and I have had the period from hell which has had me tossing and turning the last 2 nights. i won't even ask why you are taking Dan's car in for him, or indeed why you are running after having flu.

Now the garage have phoned to say that Dan's car needs rear pads as well so that's even longer to wait before I can see my duvet again!

So my search for proof that Windy is not gay continues unabated and I have unearthed a photo of him with a woman at the Emmy's, I found it on a blog with the caption "who the fuck is this?" so I guess the woman writing that blog wasn't best pleased but it means I am one step closer to winning my bet. Obvioulsy I could spend my time doing something worthwhile but where is the fun in that?

I am doing the car because it needs it and I can't stand the thought of it dragging on any longer. And running is just in the blood I guess!!

No skirts or dresses for me.
