A tale of a Scotsman living in SW london...

So, for those who are interested, I had my fitness assessment at the gym at the weekend. Now, doing this after a wedding isn't the best idea as it meant some of the readings weren't as good as they should have been, but hey ho. Anyway, the good news is all targets were met, and my gym membership is now ridiculously cheap, about 10% the rate you'd pay if you walked up and joined them. So I'm happy with that ;-)

Lots has been going on of late, some I'll maybe mention another time, but my Granda had an op last week, which went well thankfully and he seemed very chirpy when I spoke to him last night. It makes me realise though just how far away from home I am. I can get there in a few hours if I need to, but you just can't pop round, give them a lift if they need it, get their shopping - all the stuff I used to do when I lived there. It's at times like these when it's something I'm not comfortable with as in a few years my folks will be getting on as well and you feel a tad helpless. You don't want to wake up in a few years and realise you've missed out on spending time with people, you know? Hmm, getting a bit deep now but times like this make you think about it all.
Well, that was a great wedding on Friday! Great to see the happy couple looking so pleased with themselves, they had put a lot of effort into making it a bit of an eco wedding and had focussed on the important aspects to a great wedding, and pulled it off brilliantly. (In case your wondering what they are - food, drink and good music seem to do the trick!)

It was nice to be able to get home afterwards, it's so usual now to end up in a hotel when you go to a wedding as people are so dispersed these days.

Oh, and just thought I'd rub this in - I've started my Christmas shopping ;-)
