That awkward moment when you’re wearing *Nike’s and you can’t do it.

– Anon


haha I like this!

I sometimes see people all dressed up in the latest sports gear setting off jogging or on their bike. My daughter used to see girls at the gym; dressed up and wearing makeup. They had gone to socialise not work out!

The genuine athletes wear comfy clothes and shoes; often old and falling apart. They are there to exercise, not be in a fashion parade.

For myself, I make sure I have a decent pair of walking shoes and that’s about it. Yes, I own an exercise bike (gammy knees), which I use regularly at home, when it’s not too hot! For the rest, I walk Little Monkey and do various strengthening exercises.

And while I’ve never owned a pair of Nike’s in my life, I do appreciate the sentiment.

*Nike’s slogan is “Just Do It!”

My bed is a magical place where I suddenly remember everything I forgot to do.

– Anon


You’ve had a busy, productive day. You’ve finished off those little things that have been hanging around for a while. You’ve earned your rest.

Ahhhh Beddy!

You snuggle under the bedclothes, put your head on the soft pillow and close your eyes.


You’re suddenly wide awake thinking of all the things that still need doing; maybe I should have bought two of those; why did I say that to her?

This happens to me from time to time. Does it happen to you too?

It seems to be out of the blue. No I haven’t eaten lots of cheese before going to bed! Who knows why it strikes some nights and not others.

One thing is for sure; if there’s something you’ve forgotten, just curl up ready for a good night’s sleep – and you’ll remember!

I walk around like everything is fine, but deep down, inside my shoe, my sock is falling off.

– Anon 


I like how this starts off as though it’s going to be some serious psychological discussion.

As if!

Come on guys, this is me on a Sunday!

Still, it is the most annoying thing to be walking Little Monkey and find that my sock is disappearing inside my shoe. I ignore it for a while, till it gets to the point where it is scrunched up under my instep uncomfortably.

Then I have to stop; *check very carefully up and down the area for any sign of an approaching dog; take my shoe off and retrieve the errant sock.

I have one pair of socks that is particularly bad, but I keep forgetting, because they are cotton and comfy; if I’m not walking too much in them!


*Why do I have to check so carefully for dogs? LM freaks out if she sees other dogs and I don’t fancy being caught off balance and pulled full length on the grass verge – again!

My goal this weekend is to move only enough so people know I’m not dead.

– Anon

LM Sundog 2

I normally relax more at the weekend; maybe do a bit of gardening, weather permitting (and by that I mean not too hot!); process some photos for my blog; skype family; watch a movie or two.

But today I am even more lethargic. Maybe extra allergens in the air, who knows?

So yes, the above quote fits perfectly today. And as you can see from the photo, Little Monkey clearly knows how to relax!

I hope you all have a restful Sunday too.

Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It is already tomorrow in Australia.

– Charles Schulz

This makes me smile!

One of the things I like about the wonderful WP community is how worldwide it is.

Living in South Africa I am having sun-downers by the time some parts of America are waking up, but over in Australia they’ve been fast asleep for hours already.
