It's life gym, but not as we know it.
I kind of joined a gym Tuesday.  I know - it's as much of a shock to me as it is to you.

It was just the induction night, so I didn't do much more than 3-4 minutes on each piece of equipment there, but I still noticed it.  I am truly unfit.  I don't actually ache now - but my back was a bit tight yesterday.

Gareth joined too, and it is hoped we will encourage one another to turn up regularly - not wanting to fail the other.  I don't know if this will work - but we can try and see.  I'm aiming to go twice a week - Mondays and Thursdays for now - and perhaps I'll get into the habit of it all.

In news of a completely contrary nature I found a Chinese takeaway just 25 steps from my job's building's front door this lunchtime.  It's probably been there for ages - but I've never paid much attention to it.  It does a very nice chicken curry and rice for just over £4 - so I may need to start going to the gym a bit more than twice a week!

Scarlett brought in 3 mice the other evening.  Max brought one in too.  Four mice in one day is a new record.  I hope they don't try to beat it any time soon.

Work has been insanely busy of late... and it doesn't look like it's going to get better any time soon.

I have become totally addicted to WOW.  My new main (I've changed server) is a level 33 Paladin, and I have been levelling a rogue (now 18) every other session.  The guild I joined was in desperate need of a webbie, so I created a forum for them (Grammaton Clerics) and got promoted to officer! :)  We (the guild) explore an instance almost every other night - (currently the Scarlett Monastery) where the XP gain is quite good and the drops are very good for off loading in the auction houses.  I now have about 50 gold - more than all of my previous characters put together.

It's life gym, but not as we know it?!!!

Did you really head your last post with the above, or did I dream it? No, just jesting! Very clever. Made me chuckle anyway.

Pleased to hear the cats are being such...... um.... what's the phrase I'm looking for? Good company? No! Good hunters? No! I've got it!!! "frigging bastages"!! Yes! That's it. Between your cats and mine, the wildlife in Elm Park will be non-existent!

By the way; you could have had HOME MADE chicken curry and rice for free at my place last night. But there you go.

Take care. Tattie-bake tonight if you're interested. Yum xxxx

It had to be done - or I'll turn into a coach potato!

Goresbrook (sp?) leisure centre. It's cheap and "pay as you go" :)

I had thought of that - but I don't have a bike at the mo - I am seriously considering getting one though... I used to like cycling.
