The great lettuce hunt continues! I am receiving updates from all over the country from my online friends assuring me that they are doing far better than I am in the lesser spotted lettuce hunt.

Ninja Nina the Demon Shopper

Never mind the lettuce though. The awesome Nina and Rachel popped in to MacBites HQ this evening with what they assured me was something special. They weren’t wrong … it was 6 courgettes (zucchini)! Shopping Ninja Nina had achieved the impossible and secured the last courgettes in town, or at least in Tesco, so we live to eat another day!

In other fitness related news, I fished out my training weights! I know, I can feel your incredulity from here. The fact that I already owned a set of training weights came as almost as big a surprise to me as it doubtless does to you!

I extricated them from their packaging in record time. I said I owned them, I didn’t mention having ever used them 😉   Anyway it didn’t take long for me to see the potential of the things and get them set up. After seeking online assurance that I had the hang of them I realized just how useful they could be and wondered why it had taken me so long to use them!
