|Lambert is Class - Part MXIVII|

Showed up to the Simplyhealth Great East Run today looking very dapper, and gladly took pictures with the kiddies with a smile on his face. Great to see him getting out and about in local events going on in the community.

“They never really caused us too much of a problem. They surprised me the way they played, really direct. I thought they’d play a bit more football than they did."
Feels odd being the ones saying that rather than being told that by the other manager in a presser. Clearly Lambo is poking Steve Evans a bit, who was a pratt today, as usual.

What a performance for Leicester, looking good for challenging for a Europe spot this season, maybe even CL. Spurs are not looking right at all this season. Poor Liz Edwards (smirk)
|Which cover crop would be the best bet|
at 12:01 20 Sep 2019
The new allotment has been fallow for 3 years and seems to have last been used for spuds, heavy clay soil. Torn between clover, mustard and possibly rye with a covering of pig s***. What would you do?
|Which former blue that we shipped off to L1 would you have back out of...|

Obviously Moore is now in the Championship, but was recently in L1 applying his trade.
I ask because of the communal bum puckering around Norwood's "ACL/Rolled Ankle/Calf" injury really had us wondering about Strikers and the sort.

|Carpal tunnel or Arthritus|
at 01:03 19 Sep 2019
Being a professional keyboard jockey, carpal tunnel seems to be an inevitability I will face, if not facing it already, so was just sounding out anyone that may have or had it and who has had surgery of other treatment.
My symptoms are mostly in the area on the back of the hand between the little finger and his neighbour. Although i am wandering if I might be looking at the Arthritis problem too as I get shooting pain in my wrist occasionally when bracing them in an L shape, such as getting up out of a char or what not.
Just curious what treatments are like and how well the pain can be managed as I get further along in the game of life. I tend to avoid a lot of online articles or symptom checkers as I usually manage to some how end up with an incurable life threatening condition.
Got a GP visit booked for next week, but the old cogs be a churnin' and will be until then.

First of all, if are a fresher, or have kids who are freshers, best of luck in the daunting Freshers week and first step towards an academic journey. Whilst the first year doesn't count towards the class of honours, knuckling down and learning self driven study habits and academic confidence counts for everything.
Also, if you are considering going back to Uni as a mature student, get off the fence and do it. You are entitled to an undergraduate student loan if you have never had one, and after 30 years the loan is forgiven for whatever you don't pay back on 9% of earnings over a salary of £27k (*6% on post graduate)
I have the pleasure studying along side people who are in their 70's and although they may not use the qualification for employment purposes, they all say the experience is enriching and greatly fills their life with enjoyment and a goal.
Whilst you don't need a degree to be successful, there is a lot more to draw from the experience than a bit of paper and £20k of debt.
I started study with the Open Uni in my 30s last year, and while that is considered young, it was daunting considering it, but I have learnt so much about myself, more than I did from ambling tutorial blogs and videos online.
But most of all, good luck to those who are taking that step, it can be a truly wonderful, yet stressful, journey.
