Work hard at training. We add leg extension (see photo), leg curl, abductor and adductor to what we did yesterday. Do chest press with my usual twenty kilogram weight. Back is improving.
Make it back to the flat and unload dishwasher. Mum helps me measure the space where new sofa will go.
We go to Sofology and I fall in love with a sofa. It is this but with a corner in teal:
It is lovely and comfortable and not too expensive. Have put some money in savings account which can use if have to. Recommend Sofology: excellent customer service. Oh, I so hope that am allowed beautiful new teal corner sofa. Spend So Much Time lying on sofa after all…
Have just had an epic afternoon sleep: from two o’clock till six o’clock.
Must post this and then hopefully there will be supper. Just going to have a quick bath first.
Will go and look for my fluffy and kiss him. Have missed that person.
Happy Wednesday everyone!

Crack on with Somerset Maugham. Have nearly finished him. Then training at 11.30am. Back hurts but do what I can. Here are abs exercises:
Can also manage chest press, arm exercises and other chest press. Back is feeling a bit better now.
Then to the Zoo with Hannah where we see Meghan the baby Okapi with her mum Oni:
The alpacas and llamas:
Bhanu the lion. We also see the lionesses, not pictured. Hopefully soon there will be baby lions…
A sleeping kangaroo:
Jae Jae the tiger sleeping.
Also see Malcolm the baby aye aye and his mum but you are not allowed to take photos in there. We walk through the walkthrough lemur exhibit but the lemurs are all inside.
I am naughty and purchase a baby sloth. He is called Edward after the hand-reared baby sloth at the Zoo. Edward says hello. Here he is:
Am drinking Diet Coke with lime and thinking about making some supper.
Happy Tuesday everyone!

Buy Britney Spears tickets! Am taking Lily! Can’t wait!
Survive Pilates (see photos).
Support Roger Federer in winning his twentieth grand slam – the Australian Open. Again. The greatest of all time 🎾🏆❤️.
And The Sunday Times.
Read the Style.
Touch up my nails.
Drink lemon squash.
Watch the highlights of Roger’s match. Poor Marin Cilic: he threw everything at Roger but it was Not Enough.
Read more of Somerset Maugham.It’s so brilliant.
Watching Ski Sunday now. They are in Austria. Can Marcel Hirscher take the win for Austria? Yes, yes he does. Austria’s five hundredth World Cup Victory and his Fifty fourth World Cup win. And Manuel Feller? We shall see…
Marple at six o’clock: Sleeping Murder – one of my favourites…
Happy Sunday everyone!

We go to the Spa. It is nice. We have lunch: a salad; a cheese sandwich; coffee and Diet Coke.
There are big slides and we go on them. Haven’t been on a water slide for ages. There is a fast one; a less fast one and a disco one which is dark with UV lights inside.
The lockers are very clever. You don’t need a pound: there is a bracelet which opens the lockers and lets you in to the solegrotte which is a salt bath that you float in and there are projections on the ceiling.
There is a heated outdoor pool which you swim into from inside and it is warm.
There are various jacuzzis and a children’s pool with a rainbow slide and a model sea lion. We are not allowed in it as we don’t have a child with us.
Now New Chap’s flatmate is home. He likes the smell of cheap plastic and is sniffing a wallet because he doesn’t get out much – he’s studying for some exams.
This morning we watch some Malamute videos.
Now we are going to think about supper.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
