Today I joined the Co-op Bookshop. I was told that my membership would last for the rest of my life. A few days ago I joined the Curves gym. I have now done five workouts. It is so wonderfully daggy! I’ve been enjoying myself immensely. You jog on the spot between turns on the contraptions. I part jog, part dance, sometimes wave my arms around. And I’ve signed up for a season ticket at the Aquatic Centre. Three new pieces of barcoded plastic in one week!
