Circuit class nearly killed me!
Will not be going to that again
Chilled out with a nice swim afterwards though

nonperson 26-08-2019 12:25 PM

Circuit classes are quite intense. I did one a few years ago and never went back either.

I bet the swim afterwards was really nice though. Are there any other classes you might try?

one_step_closer 26-08-2019 12:39 PM

Afternoon everyone.

Welcome back Katie. :-)

I hope you have a nice holiday Tamo.

Sending love, Lillie.

How are you doing NP?

Well done for trying the class Beckie, you chose the worst one to start with I think! There will definitely be slower paced ones.

nonperson 26-08-2019 12:43 PM

Spinning classes are meant to be quite good.

I'm alright. =/ How're you today, Lindsay?

tamobhuuta 26-08-2019 12:50 PM

Thanks guys.

Are people enjoying the sun?

nonperson 26-08-2019 12:55 PM

Not at all. I need to go rescue some laundry off the line soon before it crisps up but I'm not sure I can survive being outside for that long. =/

Are you enjoying it?

one_step_closer 26-08-2019 01:01 PM

Yeah I've heard that spinning is good because you can control the level of resistance you use on the bike.

Have you seen those portable fan things that go around your neck NP? Maybe you should get some of them.

I can't be bothered with the heat at all.

I'm not sure how I am. Mondays are quiet days for me mostly anyway unless I have an appointment because I have no planned housework on Mondays.

nonperson 26-08-2019 01:12 PM

I keep forgetting it's Monday. Hope you have a nice quiet day if you can.

I have not seen those fans... *googles*

one_step_closer 26-08-2019 01:17 PM


I've only seen them on Facebook.

Cacoethes 26-08-2019 01:18 PM

I'll definitely find some other classes to try
The swim was really nice afterwards, soothed my burning muscles!!

Good luck getting the washing in np!
It is far too hot to be outside

Quiet day sounds good lindsay

Got a BBQ at the neighbours later
Don't really fancy being out in the hear or being social!

one_step_closer 26-08-2019 01:21 PM

Do you need to stay at the BBQ for long?

It sounds like you did a good job of the class.

Cacoethes 26-08-2019 01:23 PM

I hope not!

I did try my best
Had to modify a lot of the activities because I physically could not do some things

one_step_closer 26-08-2019 01:24 PM

Don't stay for so long that it's really bad for you. Just get some tasty food and drink and escape quickly!

Cacoethes 26-08-2019 01:25 PM

I think thats the best plan!

nonperson 26-08-2019 01:27 PM

It doesn't matter that you modified some of the exercises, as long as you were moving and doing something it would have been good for you.

I agree, just stay as long as you feel comfortable.

About to venture out to swap the laundry over... if you don't hear from me again it's because I've actually turned to ash like a vampire in sunlight.

one_step_closer 26-08-2019 01:31 PM

Wait NP, we need to know what you want done with your ashes!

Cacoethes 26-08-2019 01:40 PM


Good luck np!

nonperson 26-08-2019 01:54 PM

Lol, Lindsay. I survived!

I've discovered a hole in my favourite Harry Potter tshirt though, goddamnit.

Cacoethes 26-08-2019 02:06 PM

Good to hear np!! :p

Oh noo!
Always awful when a favourite piece of clothing breaks
Happened to my fav pair of hippie trousers the other day :(

chinahorse 26-08-2019 02:18 PM

Dying clothing is sad. Bertie ripped my fav hollister shirt the other week. Couldn't have done it to my primark one.

Cacoethes 26-08-2019 02:20 PM

Oh no!
Naughty Bertie

nonperson 26-08-2019 02:25 PM

Trying to tell myself it's just clothing... but still! =(

I lost an awful lot of my favourite clothes, particularly jeans and hoodies, when I had my dog.

Cacoethes 26-08-2019 02:30 PM

One of my family's dogs is a chewer.
Have to keep things well away from her!

nonperson 26-08-2019 02:33 PM

It's so annoying, isn't it.

Also... when I say I lost the clothing, what I really mean is I still wear it and just look like a complete scruff bag...!

Cacoethes 26-08-2019 02:49 PM

I look like a scruff bag 99% of the time so it's all good :p

I just had a kiwi for the first time in years

nonperson 26-08-2019 02:53 PM

Hah, same. >.>

Ooh yum. Kiwi is nice... apart from all the little hairs get everywhere.

Cacoethes 26-08-2019 02:56 PM

I need to buy a new pair of linen type trousers
Maybe I'll look less like a scruff bag than I do in leggings and a baggy top!

Yeah that is annoying
Worth it though! Kiwi is yummy

Cacoethes 26-08-2019 03:44 PM

I ate some delicious melon and now I have no more melon and that makes me sad
Thought you should all know that

nonperson 26-08-2019 03:54 PM

I feel your pain, Beckie! I just ate the last of my melon too. =(

one_step_closer 26-08-2019 03:55 PM

I have some quite thin t-shirts that have designs on them I really like but Crookshanks has put claw holes in them. I just wear another t-shirt underneath if I'm going out.

Oh dear, I hope you have at least left some melon in the world Beckie and NP.

Cacoethes 26-08-2019 04:04 PM

Sad times np :(

I will be getting more melon tomorrow!

That's a good solution lindsay!

nonperson 26-08-2019 04:06 PM

I might get more when I go to the shop later...

Cacoethes 26-08-2019 04:13 PM

Good plan

chinahorse 26-08-2019 04:51 PM

Watermelon is the best sort.

nonperson 26-08-2019 04:52 PM

That's what I had.

Asda does yellow watermelon now. It tastes different...

chinahorse 26-08-2019 04:53 PM


Yellow?! Odd.

one_step_closer 26-08-2019 06:06 PM

I need to try yellow watermelon.

not_so_insig 26-08-2019 06:35 PM

I dont like melon.

Hello all. 3 people including tamobhuuta are going on holiday today. Seems to be the day for people going away.

Stellata 26-08-2019 07:30 PM

I'm not keen on melon either.

Happy holidays peoples.

chinahorse 26-08-2019 07:33 PM

Melon is amazing though.

That sounds festive Katie :-P

Stellata 26-08-2019 07:39 PM

Yep, could do with some cool Christmas weather lol!

Cacoethes 26-08-2019 07:39 PM

Melon is amazing

I'm back from the BBQ
It was really nice but I'm shattered now!
Luckily my neighbour noticed I was looking a bit tired and told me to go and get some rest

Christmas weather would be a welcome change!

chinahorse 26-08-2019 07:48 PM

Glad it was nice and good of your neighbour to notice.

Don't say that! I have no heating and don't want it to get cold.

Stellata 26-08-2019 07:49 PM

Rest is good.

How come you have no heating, Lillie?

Cacoethes 26-08-2019 07:53 PM

I really do like my neighbours

Oh no Lillie!
Why no heating?

not_so_insig 26-08-2019 08:01 PM

Oooh the new gocompare advert has both what Wynne Evans looks like irl and as the singer.

tamobhuuta 26-08-2019 08:54 PM

We are officially on holiday. The drive down was fine but we had to have air conditioning on full blast. When we stopped for refreshments I had a salted caramel latte.VERY yummy.

Stellata 26-08-2019 09:22 PM

Glad things are going well, tamo. Keep as cool as you can.

Eska 27-08-2019 08:01 AM

Morning everyone :) Happy holidays to those who are away
