Oh I ache. This morning was pretty uneventful, except my fight with the tumbledryer plug (it won)1, but this afternoon I went to the gym. I'd got a re-assessment and program change booked, coz I've not been for over a year. So we went through the height/weight/body-fat/etc thing .. no big surprises, body fat is 31.3% (should be between 20% and 26%), weight is ~11stone, waist ~31.5", hips ~43.5". Then she sorted out a program for me, and I did a workout. Lets put it this way - I'll be very happy when I can actually finish the full program. I can do about half the cardiovascular stuff, and almost all the weights stuff. But my arms already ache, and I think everything's going to ache tomorrow. But it's good for me!

1. We use the same socket for the lawnmower as for the tumbledryer, and when the tumbledryer is unplugged the plug falls down the back of the washing machine. J can reach it, but I can't. And so, this morning I discovered that J had forgotten to plug the tumbledryer back in after mowing the lawn on Saturday.

Some sort of 3/4 way plug thing needed?

Not easy to do - the tumbledryer is on top of the washing machine, and the plug won't reach much further down or out than it does ... and obviously the multiway needs to be accesible (coz the lawnmower won't be plugged in all the time), and that means it probably has to be too far from the plug ... and I'm not sure we'd get a 2 way on the other socket (for washing machine + tumbledryer) coz the appliances are awfully close to the socket.

I shall just look for myself on friday :)

you can hook some of mine on walls - they have the little holes at the back - do you noy have space?
Margaretpling on June 10th, 2002 01:13 pm (UTC)
There's probably space for that - but getting something onto the wall for it to hang on would probably require removing a shelf and moving both appliances, not sure if we're likely to bother with that all that soon ;)

Tie a bit of string to the plug, and tie the other end to somewhere you can reach it.

Re: pragmatic
Yeah, I think we'll end up doing something like that :)

Re: pragmatic
Actually, if you're going to tie string, you may as well tether it in such a way that it doesn't fall down out of reach.
