In the meantime, given the continuing inability of John Lewis to supply me with a Leg Master machine, I have invested in a rather snazzy pair of FitFlops - cunningly engineered flip-flops which promise to give you 'a workout while you walk'. They've been popping up all over the place in the press lately and when I read what other users had to say about them, I thought I'd give them a try. They did take a little getting used to - I spent the first couple of hours wobbling my way around the place - but now I'm striding about like a well-balanced pro. There are loads of designs to choose from on the main site but I bought mine from Boots.com where there was significantly less choice (four styles only) on offer, but many more Advantage Card points to be had - and (to steal a phrase from a well-known supermarket) in these straitened times, 'every little helps!' ;-)
Books Out: None (Big surprise, I know - so unlike me!)
I hope everyone is well. If any events of monumental national importance should occur within the next few weeks (and, no, the Crewe by-election does not qualify!) I might just pop in to say hello and compare notes, but otherwise I'll see you again in June!
