  1. Greenclaws

    July 26, 2011 by Amy Hansford

    Our lovely friend JJ bought us some flowers t’other week, inspiring us to do up the front garden. Until now, Alex had cleared the borders and woodchipped them to deter weeds. I hadn’t got round to doing anything other than watching the potted bushes die slowly, so we bounded down to B&Q and got busy in the garden.

    We now have a beautifully planted front garden, and our favourite new resident, Brian.

  2. Work It

    July 25, 2011 by Amy Hansford

    I went to the gym today. It’s important to know that I hate going to the gym. It was only possible thanks to the creche which takes Little L – most places that offer a creche for children who are 6 months+ only, while ours is 3 months+. Brilliant.

    Due to various ills, I’ve not been able to go to the gym since joining two months ago, so today was a case of me getting on with it. Irritatingly, I left my gym token at home – the precious piece of plastic which tells me what to do next and how long for. Otherwise (like today) I’m completely lost. Not wishing to waste the hour of creche time, I had a go on the treadmill, worked up a sweat* then caved in and had some ‘me’ time instead with a cup of tea. So today’s workout:

    20 minutes on the treadmill consisting of
    2 minutes walking at 5km/hour
    1 minute running at 8km/hour
    Repeated until end.

    Aside from that, I’ll be walking 1.5 miles with Little L later this afternoon on a little loop around the marina. After that, time to relax!

    *This does not take long thanks to me being pretty unfit.

  3. Comic-Con – I wish

    July 23, 2011 by Amy Hansford

    One day I would love to go to the San Diego Comic-Con. Until then, I will live vicariously through other people’s Comic-Con themed blog posts, like this one care of ROFL Razzi.

    Today I learned that the Americans call a bouncy castle a ‘Moonbounce’.
    A friend learned that a group of giraffes is called a ‘tower’.
    What have you learned today?
