Well it's that time of year again....when the cold Sou'westers start blowing horizontal rain mixed with salt spray over the sea wall at Southsea....and 15,000 lycra clad loonies set off on a brisk ten miler around Portsmouth !

Anyone else running the Great South this year?


I squeaked in with a last minute place courtesy of SSAFA .

(Who? Read all about it HERE ! )

Be interested to hear who else I might bump into in my usual spot - at the back with all the shuffling wheezy types :)

Anyone else doing the Great South Run this weekend ?


SSAFA Norton Homes details here

SSAFA Norton Homes
The two SSAFA Norton Homes provide short term accommodation so that families can stay nearby whilst visiting their loved ones at Selly Oak Hospital in Birmingham and the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre at Headley Court, Surrey. The houses are designed as 'home from home'. They are both located in secure and peaceful environments.


The homes are available 365 days a year and are run by dedicated on-site teams who are there to offer support, comfort and advice to those who stay. We recognise that it is often a very difficult and emotionally challenging time.



Who can stay there?
Any family members who wish to visit a loved one at Selly Oak Hospital or Headley Court may stay at SSAFA Norton House. Parents, spouses, partners, brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts and children of any age are all welcome. The homes also have disabled access and facilities enabling patients to spent time there too if their family or a partner is visiting.

Good on yer H-H,

forecast for tomorrow down here on the palm-fringed South Coast Riviera is...ah...1 degree C and possible showers :)

Looking forward to a slow jog around Pompey, goaded on by the intoxicating rhythms of the Portsmouth Batala Samba band ( and the mad Irish on the corner of Churchill Avenue!)

Any SSAFA supporters in the area - come on down ! ( but bring a brolly.....'cos if it doesn't rain I'll eat my shorts.....)
