Hi everyone. It is great to be back here. I found this really supportive back when I was here before when I achieved great things with the support from all of you here.
I have a number of intentions for this season.
1. I will be lighter and even healthier. I lost a lot of weight back in 2008 (77 pounds). I did that through cycling, and doing things about food I was eating. I am now an Ultra runner - and oddly some of the weight has crept back on -…
I have done a great race this morning. A 10 mile run locally. I achieved a personal best by doing it in 1:19:31. Well happy with that. I have a lovely medal. Great memories from that to keep. And a lovely picture with friends. Marvellous
I had a really relaxing day with my partner and a walk around the lovely gardens in Sissinghurst. That's a lovely national trust house nearby. We went along there and had a really relaxing walk around the…
I am thinking about how i can make work better. I am sure that i will be able to get more into it and make it better and do a better job. It is a new one - which is really great. But very much hard work, and new people to build relationships with. I think it is getting easier - and I know I could be enjoying it more.
Please will you give me tips and support? I have my first appraisal after 4 months on Thursday!

Really enjoyed today. I did a local half marathon. That was marvellous fun. I did it pretty ok time too - given it was so hilly and challenging. It was really very hot too!!
Done more packing today. Think we have most of it sorted out. Great news. It is getting close to Friday now when we will move.
Once we have moved I will be going running more. I will be more settled. We have so much stuff around - boxes, rubbish and all kinds just now.
Most of the kitchen stuff is packed away. That means that it is quite difficult to make any food. I am still trying to eat really healthily - though have been enjoying some chocolate today :-) Had KFC - was… Continue
I took my partner to the Toastmasters dinner last night. She enjoyed it. I really enjoyed all the guys meeting her too - particularly after I did my speech about Susie a few weeks ago. Susie had a good time and really enjoyed the speech from Frankie. I really like those guys at Kent Speakers. They are great. Everyone is really good fun, it is a really supportive group, and whats more - people are fabulous speakers!
What is so great about today? Well - I woke up this morning and… Continue
So, this morning is the day that we exchange, as planned, smoothly, and precisely. I get a phone call very shortly after 9am this morning which confirms from our solicitors that we have exchanged both with our buyer and our seller. We will be moving in well before Christmas. The completion date will be at the latest on 18 December. We agree an even earlier date for completion just following confirmation that we have… Continue
That was a good day for getting things sorted out. I had a number of phone calls with the agents and solicitors. In the end I agreed to pay £400 to the buyers as a contribution to them moving house before Christmas. Was good to get things moving. I am expecting exchange very very early tomorrow morning. After which I will activate the house insurance. I will also be able to confirm with the removals people that they will definitely be able to move us on Friday 18 December. That really would be… Continue
Got a few more things sorted out. Heard back from the estate agent who are trying to find a place for the family to rent whose house we are buying. I am sure that it will be sorted tomorrow so that we can buy and move into the new house. Can't wait!!
Got a few things done yesterday at work. I was a little distracted by the house. Buy nevertheless I got lots of things sorted out.
In the evening I did a bit of packing up for when we move. It is amazing quite how many boxes… Continue
Hey guys. I had a really great day. It was amazing.
I got things shifting on the house front. That was good news. I was able to unlocking things and by standing firm I was able to get what I wanted so that we could all exchange and move house. I will hear tomorrow from the agent confirming that we are able to exchange tomorrow and then to complete on the deal well before xmas. Looking forward to it.
Great news is that all of the money that we need to buy the house in… Continue
Went to Toastmasters last night. My role was as general evaluator. Which more or less I can do what I like as long as I get across what was great and what could be improved about the evening. Its a fun role too because it is not possible to prepare in advance, you simply have to find something clever to say and boil down the whole evening.
Had a great chat with some people at the club. That was fun afterwards. We had an interesting discussion about goals… Continue
