Lots of small news...

My eyes! My eyes!

I've had this problem with my eyes for the last month or so. Every few days they start to get dry, itchy and sore. Doctor said it is an allergy and prescribed anti-histamine eye drops. They seem to work, to a point, but they got so bad last Friday I had to leave work early. What with all the blinking and squinting I'm doing right now anyone who sees me thinks I'm a psycho. Great time to be going to a trade show...

Low Cost Airlines Congress

On in London, I'm flying over tomorrow night to be there for Tuesday and Wednesday. Poor Andrea will be left on her own again.

Adidas Dublin Half-Marathon

Next Saturday I'm doing this race with my sister Paula and my brother Kevin. Dad is coming up to watch and cheer us on also. I know Kevin is way faster than me, but I have no idea about Paula. Tonight I ran 12 miles in 104 minutes, which is just over 8 and a half minute miles, I'm hoping to do the 13.1 miles of the half marathon at that pace (8.5 min miles) and so finish in about an hour and 50 minutes. I won't get a lot of training between now and the race though.

Quiz Night!

Next Thursday night the OpenJaw staff sports & social club are having a pub quiz. I'm the compere for the night, and I had to come up with a couple of rounds of questions also. Looking forward to that. I need to find a dicky bow though.

So it's going to be a busy week, too busy to write blogs. In fact I've had to work several hours today, Sunday!
