Good Healthy Exercise

My friend N moved house today. This isn’t relaxingat the best of times, but this was harder work than usual, because she had a house ten minutes walk along a rough path from the nearest parking space.

It’s times like that when it’s good to have friends, and there were five of us, including Helen and Theresa who brought their van. Thank goodness that included two blokes, because I really don’t think we’d have managed those speakers even between three girls. So us girls let the fellers do the macho stuff and just moved boxes. N spent the last month or so having a major clearout, and the last week moving a bag to her car each time she went. That’s probably why we got the whole lot done in just over two hours, and all the stuff fit into N’s car and Helen and Theresa’s van.

Some people pay a fortune in gym membership for that kind of workout.

And then we went for a pizza, before the other girls set off for Garafia.
