Things you want to say but can't

My understanding is that it's a water park within a hotel. Therefore "usual" pool boy responsibilities apply. Nevertheless as a parent i never expected anyone else to look out for my child in a pool abroad -  except me.

Having been to Sharm on 15+ occasions I can categorically state that the pool staff are there to allocate sunbeds and tidy the pool area. No disrespect meant but they are not lifeguards.

ever met or spoken to somebody famous and thought what a great person?

I've always "done" something. Ice skating, horse riding, cycling, hockey, rounders and netball when i was a kid.

Mountain biking, walking, gym and various fashionable aerobics classes as an adult.

Now running, cycling and plucking up the courage to get a cozzie on and try Tri.

My Father's dead - heart attack @ 40 (good riddance)

My mother's a size 22, no idea of weight. Her idea of exercise is her choppers.

My sister is size 12 but HATES any form of exercise. Lives of nervous energy.

My husband, currently 20ish stone, lost 2 stone in the last 6 weeks and says he's going to carry on. Doesn't exercise, he takes the dog for a walk in the car.

My daughter is 28 a nurse and workaholic come binge drinker on her few days off. Won't walk, bike, swim... anything really. She gets a taxi everywhere.

My son, 16 tomorrow 5ft 11in, bed potato.

My niece is 7 years old and does horse riding, swimming, ice skating. It's been said disdainfully that she takes after me.

groovy shoes!!!

Sounds like a statement made by Spike off of Nottingham Hill  

Physio, How much would you expect to pay?

You tend to pay for the session.

This is my experience too. for me it has been £40 regardless if it's a 20 minute immediate hands on session, or upwards to 40 minutes including chat about it first.

Hi Runningfor me, Simonfesta, Anne, Becky, Nessie & Kathryn

EKGO is the one to follow - IF you can complete a marathon every weekend

Seriously, well done EKGO

I've not run for 4 weeks and am too scared to sit on the scales

What a lovely day it's been.
