    I thought i would be good and go swimming in the mornings when the kids go back to school. But no where is open for public swimming in the week. How stupid is that?!

    I need to explain a bit more i think! The pools do open in the day, adult swim is at about 7am and then at 6pm. I was hoping i could go while my son was at preschool, 9am -12 ish, but all the schools swim at these times.

    I could do it in the evenings, but thought i would be better at sticking to it in the mornings. Once i sit down in the evenings after dinner i don't very often get up again LOL!! With hubby working away too i get stuck because i don't have a babysitter! I walk quite a bit but am getting bored wanted something different to do that doesn't involve membership or stupid gym machines that i can't figure out how to use.

    Any sugesstions or offers of a babysitter? LOL!! :)

    Ruthy the river Orwell is really yucky, wouldn't even dip my toe in incase i caught something!

    Is there a private gym with a swimming pool nearby? Monthly subscriptions can be pricey but off peak memberships are cheaper. You would also have use of all the gym equipment

    Awww, poor ickle Ruthy! I know how you feel i used to get it all the time. Then i finally persuaded my doc to get them taken out.

    Thanks Taz but i am like Ruthy too i probably wouldn't use it enough to justify the monthly cost! I will just have to do it in the evenings when hubby gets home! I just feel guilty sometimes going out when he spends so much time working away. :)

    tee hee hee - maybe we should start a new thread... novel ways to burn a few calories. i'm sure ruthy could add a few! how many of them would be 'clean' though is another matter ;) (ruthy - don't go changing)
