“An army marches on its stomach.”
Hmm, I did work on provisions today but possibly in more ways than one. That dratted Nanna! Very poor show, dozzer.
I hope you didn't eat more than your fair share of the rations Doz!
There is a chance Nanna might have to go back to Poundland.
What are you guys on for goodness sake? Can't work you out at all!
We are a band of loyal brothers determined to get their CIC and other trainees through the enemy lines to the core of this nhs regime and blow it sky high to prove we will not be outdone or trampled underfoot by the system. (Followed by manic laughter.) As a graduate you have proved this possible by breaking through the frontline of their defences past their bluey-green front runner. CIC here made it to end of week 7 once but was struck down by double-vision - now stable and back in training. We have a Nanna and grandad who assist country-wide buying Jammie Dodgers and needing lottery tickets collecting. They help in all areas of the front line. We have no political/religious/interplanetary affiliation or rules for joining other than enjoyment and self-preservation. We bear no malice towards individual members of the nhs working community. Anyone can sign up as long as they don't mind a truly profound daily quote.
Hope that helps.
Oh Beek, I try to join in with this & every now & again you can persuade our Dozzer to tell us how his running is going & I think as this is his 2nd attempt we must do everything to keep him in the fight. (Although fighting the NHs seems very wrong but he means it in the right way- I think). Sometimes he completely loses me but I have been promoted to Captain so I'm certainly not complaining.
I have cake though I could barely manage a few chuncks of mango today - but march forth I did. The enemy beaten back for the day
Mango - well get you.
Nanna will love that - she likes a bargain. If grandad's lottery tickets ever come up maybe she'll upgrade to M&S.
Will bear it in mind.
I have a portable lap harp
You're in, Private I_will.
You and portable lap harp have just got me through 6/2. We need all help available. A man needs more than a trusty steed to keep going.
I advanced slowly on the enemy last night for a reccy. Made a strategic withdrawal as I got cramp.
Courage in the face of the enemy shows true valour.
Morning Doz, you cant go out just yet.... Ive just seen your Nanna in the market, she wants you to go round to hers and help her unravel the jumper she was knitting for Grandad. She has purled one, where she should have knitted one, and shes made a right cods of it . Take some of that nice malt loaf she likes , because shes very upset . xxx
Malt loaf! She expects us to get by on Poundland dodgers and wants malt loaf.
Ah well that's Nanna's for you. Don't get her started on the blancmange though, you know what she's like xxx
Blancmange? Surely no one likes blancmange!
I made two malt loaves. They are huge! Just like that bread Barbara Goode made. They will feed us for weeks if we ration them carefully. They have real ale and malt in them to make us strong. The enemy has none so we have the advantage! Ha ha. Have at you varlet!!!!
We will drive coach and horses through defences. Line up behind me brave knights, we go in at dusk. (Bring the ob nobs for the foot soldiers)
Ale and malt - mmm, getting closer. Dusk appears, shields and swords at the ready - make Theoden proud, my sons!
I lurrve Malt loaf ! I lurrve Ob nobs too xx
'Ob nobs are just daft.
No that's dib dobs not ob nobs xxx
As in sherbet?
Arent they dib dabs, or am I getting mixed up with cat flaps ?
So, what's a dib dob?
its a posh flip flop
The scouts say it don't they ? Dib dib dib, dob,dob dob, I haven't a clue what it means though ! xxx
Ah, I know the dibs you mean now.
You guys are silly.
Also, malt load is one of those mysterious (to this American) British packaged foods that some love, some hate, and I am perplexed by. I didnt know one could make them, i thought they only came out of factories!
Tomorrow, i run.
Go for Soreen with butter - great for energy!
If you've got Soreen I'm in!!
By the way Nilzed - we are not silly - we are brave, honourable, foolish but happy. Join us!
Oh no, not at all. I am a marmite on toast convert. I have promised an Australian friend i will try vegemite though.
I have tried Marmite chocolate. - it's unusual. Possibly good for troops strength.
The greatest thing about malt loaf is the way it sticks in your teeth, like, forever. So when you're out on a run and in need of a sugary energy boost, there it is, lodged behind a molar. The gift that keeps on giving. PS yes you guys ARE silly.
Don't be mean. We're chipper and up for the fight for the common good.
Silly in a surreal and endearing way! I really do like malt loaf, it's just the extensive flossing afterwards...
That's more like it!
Yeah ! ( blows raspberry ) xxx
Oh I reckon we may have a convert there. Anyone who thinks we're silly has to be one of us - unless silly has a different meaning in the US.
I think you are all silly. You made me laugh this morning which is great. I should be out attending to the new queen bees this morning but it's raining so can't do that. BUT - how does raw honey sound? Many uses apart from sustenance. And I am starting a new vat of mead later today. Takes years to mature and last years tastes like paint stripper - have you a use for that maybe? Tell you what - I'll do a swap. 2 slices of Soreen (yum) in return for a whole Parsnip, honey and ginger cake. (Olde Elizabethan recipe and delish)
Oh - and Vegemite is no where near as good as Marmite! Sorry Oz.
I have no musical instruments but I can whistle through a blade of grass stretched between my thumbs.
Mead with parsnip, honey and ginger cake certainly sounds good.
ask) OK well as yet the furthest I have run is 7k (today) but what I am thinking is that once I find out...
cooler than any other this week so up and run today so I can run on Wednesday too. Mad, eh? Very uneventful...
