Feeling totally braw to have kicked off this line in banter! And PtB, don't worry - what's worse for me is that I'm Northern(England)er who sounds (& acts) like a bloody southerner these days.

Baz, you lot don't need to try, you do it without intent! For me though it's Smout who captures the Scottish dialect at it's undecipherable best, I miss her posts....

Right, I'm off to read some Irvine Welsh. Did a bit of that in the past and found that my swearing went up a level so must watch out.

The header update isn't quite accurate for those who have already run more than 1 sub 3:15 this year ;-)

Scullery - though not sure it is so much Scottish just not heard it in ages. I was Ben the scullery gabbin a piece when thought of that wan.

Nice work on header ptb. Had my own wee sub 3:15 bimbble last month but if it don't meet the criteria no worries.

Hmmm as it gets closer i might need to see how logistics work for this embra marafun. :-O

HT - you're in. And so is anyone else I've missed if they just let me know (a man of my age can't possibly remember everything since January. Or even last week).
