Had my thyroid levels checked a few weeks ago Chuggles as I was thinking exactly the same - but it seems they're fine. Hey ho!

Well chuggled!

Ooh, good luck Podds!

How outrageous about cat sitter sluggy! Best send Meldy (AND the GPO) round. Grr.

Hello the rest of you I've been popping in and out but truth be told I'm rather gloomy at the minute and sometimes just can't even face posting. Most unlike me and I'm hoping it passes soon as I am extremely bored of the world caving in over the tiniest thing.

Anyway, his evening I'm super excited as we have FINALLY found somewhere to go on holiday good job really as we're leaving in less than 36 hours... Swapping venues in the middle of the fortnight which we've never done before but hoping it'll make me feel like I've had two holidays in one Overlooking Bala lake for the first, and pottering round Last of the Summer Wine country for the second


SO excited

Fat chance Spence!  

I've been plastering ADORED it Now just want to plaster forever  

Someone just rang me up about my car accident. 'I haven't been in a car accident' I said, 'thank you for calling'. 

'But are you sure?' he said...

I'm under a blanket with the heating on (although only cos we don't have hot water without the heating - all mod cons in Daffy Towers - can't say I'm too sad about it tonight mind )

Thanks for the extra excuse Meldy but as I was told there was nowt actually wrong with me and I should behave as 'normal' I figured I'd give it a go

And the instructor looked alarmingly like you actually -same long plait and everything - I was pretty scared not to get on with it once I was in there

Plastering course tomorrow! Can't say I'm not having a varied week

Dragon Hope you can keep up with her!

Bodypump was, er, interesting. Stupid experience with both women on the tills, then I was a couple of minutes late because the clock in the changing room is clearly slow. Felt like a right idiot - woman looked like she was going to say something so I waited by her, but then she didn't so I looked like a right prat just standing there. Eventually someone helped me get weights etc  Put too many weights on thing and couldn't figure out how to get them off again  and class went on for 45 mins instead of (my) anticipated 30. 

Planned to go swimming but could barely move arms so figured I'd best not for safety reasons - I'm hardly the world's best swimmer at the best of times! 

Since then everything I've tried to do has gone wrong - might just go back to bed and start again

Excellent work Podds! 

You too Spence! 

I've had a day out. Involved 1 bus, 2 trams, 2 trains, 3 taxis, 5.5 miles of walking, 2 meetings where people turned up and 3 hours waiting round for a final meeting where they apparently weren't expecting me and wouldn't let me in 

Got me out of the house, I suppose... 

Just booked onto a Body Pump class for tomorrow - should I be worried?

Packed it in a box and stored it in a pile of a million other boxes in my kitchen, that's what 

Spence, I think you're going to have to work on your new identity as a non-slow runner lass!  

Been for an induction at a gym I'd not been to before but got 2 months membership for £31 so figured it was worth a go. Got to be the world's most bizarre experience doing what was described as a '90 degree squat' while on a vibrating PowerPlate overlooking a giant pirate ship  

Still, quite enjoyed the made sideways ski machines which took a bit of getting used to but were a bit like doing the twist

No sin shining around here DL - that's the light of my halo you can see there   

Er, what on earth are you doing in a shabin on your own?! The mind boggles! 

(((((pets and vets and owners' bank accounts)))))))))))

I made it to York and back with narry a twinge, don't fret! Glad you like flute choir chuggles - I wasn't actually there this week but I'm sure they made a beautiful noise without me

I've been to Chatsworth Never actually been in the house or garden mind you - after paying £3 just to get in the car park Ican never bring myself to pay another £22 to get into anything else so I just wander round the shop, splash out on a cuppa, and today I wandered up through the woods in the sunshine and found a little fairy dell and mad aquaduct waterfall thing. Very nice.


Going to attempt to go to York again tomorrow - wish me luck!
