Saturday was a BIG BIG day for our little granddaughter- 5 years old birthday girl! I can hardly believe that this time has gone by so quickly. She had a party at Zagamis which has an enormous indoor play area- a great idea for energetic 5 year olds. Happy birthday Tahlia!!

I'm beginning to think that all this exercise is starting to pay off- I'm actually getting some muscles! Not sure I really like the look though- although it's got to be better than flab and bone! Some of the ladies I train are so strong- they put me to shame. One was leg pressing 100kg so I thought I'd better check out my strength. 60kg was hard, 70kg I was struggling and 80kg - NO WAY! I've improved though- now I can do 70 without too many probs and do some reps at 80kg. Don't think I could over that though- I think my joints wouldn't hold out. Any way- Arnie watchout!! Here I come!!!

Hahaha- debstar had me figured out last night- yes I was bored and fiddling on here- hence the new look!! Not sure I really like it yet- I might change yet again!
I'm about to have a big, big, big whinge!!! About my foot!. I am so tired of it it's driving me crazy!!! This morning I get up and it's not too bad. During the day I stand and talk to someone for a while and it HURTS!!. Keeps hurting until I want to stamp my foot in frustration, but knowing that will only hurt it more, I don't!. Then, after having lunch it's not too bad and right now it is much better. It's the inconsistency for no rhyme or reason that I can see that is so frustrating!!!!!
Phew- feels heaps better now. I'll keep icing and stretching and going easy on it until the frustration builds again!

I think the world of blogs must be populated with ageing dogs!! Meet Ash- he's 12 and getting very grey and quite arthriticky esp on these cold cold mornings. Hence his very own mini heater! Now- how's that for a pampered pooch?

Confession time- again!! I cleaned out my car and found 4 - yes FOUR smartie boxes!!. Even I was horrified. It's one thing to know you're doing the wrong thing but to see the evidence-!!!!!. Anyway- today has been a 'no smartie ' day!

I've been tagged by ms-attitude and therefore have to give 7 random facts about myself. Here goes
1. I was born in Wales and came out here when Iwas 5.
2. I have 2 sisters and am the youngest.
3. I have been mad on horses since I was about 8 but didn't get one til I was 22.
4. I met my husband when I was 15- we got married when I was 21.
5. We want to move to northern qld for at least a year- he would like it to be forever!
6. We have two children and two little granddaughters- all of which would make moving away forever really hard to do- if not impossible
7. This is the best time in my life- so far

I think most other people on here have been tagged so I'll just leave it at that!

Oh dear! Let loose in the bookshop again! This time this post is for my sister Judy who reads this just to see what I'm up to!

Ok Judy - what is the capital of

Ethiopia? Angola? Madagascar? and Congo? lol

Email me your answers!

this harks back to our childhood when we shared a bedroom and a wall chart of the world, flags and capital cities. We used to test each others knowledge of capital cities just before we went to sleep. lol

This is Francis- my rather sick goldfish and friend and fellow co habiter of Alison ( who isn't sick) Has anyone any suggestions? I'm treating the water for fungal growth, I put in a solution of salt ( which is supposed to help) I talk to her. cajole her and berate her ( none of which seems to help). We thought she was a very fat fish until I discovered she was an Oranda and therefore rather special! It's awful seeing her moping in the corner of the tank.

Two Borders book vouchers for my birthday = SIX BOOKS??????? Not likely!! This is what happens- I tootle into borders grasping my vouchers in my hot little hands and there I am confronted by an array of books that I HAVE to have! So- the book vouchers have lured me in and now I am a captive but much poorer audience! lol

Can you notice a 'theme' here- apart from the obvious outsider on the right!

This is what my new work gave me for my birthday- aren't they lovely. They were tight buds at first but now are opening up. Just a lovely thought as were all the birthday wishes. Such a nice lot of people. I'm really glad I've made the move. I still have contact with some people from school but other than that I have no wish to return. Didn't take me long to adjust did it??

Went to physio yesterday and was told I could do a BIT of running- like a minute every 15 minute walk. Well... no sooner said than done! Off I went and for the rest of the day my footed killed me! However the physio did say it was how it pulled up the NEXT day that was significant. Lo and behold- my foot was no worse this morning! Yah!! I LOVE IT!! Just the best feeling- running. So good I did a bit more today with a client and now my foot doesn't feel too bad at all. I think I'd better not over do it though- so back to crawling for the next few days
