How is the ankle?

Hi Vix, apparently the inventors wanted to make tomatoes more accessible at sporting occasions. :) Brilliant eh!

The ankle hurts like H*ll today, but that could be because I shuffled upstairs on my bottom and had a bath. Think I whacked it on the way up :( However I'm sparkling clean, have clean hairand clean clothes and that's gotta be worth a bit of discomfort!

You still running on the treadmill in the gym? X

Gotta love that!

Ouch!! Nothing beats clean hair and feeling clean though. It must be a huge nightmare not to get it wet and going upstairs!!! How long is the cast on for?

still on the treadmill, still going nowhere ! The positives are-

1) i have can run continuously and not get interrupted by traffic lights

2) i like the hill training but not sure if i am actually running at the incline it shows on the machine because it feels "easy" but is safer than running in the mountainous park

When we were in China - they had some Japanese toilets in one of the restaurants - i tell you something they are AMAZING!!!

We went to a a bar which had a gold toilet that was incredible - the men's were shaped liked lips.

Oh that gave me a real chuckle :D Out of all the things it could have dispensed I wonder why he picked tomatoes though :D

Could the inventors work for the Japanese Tomato Marketing Board I wonder??

Brilliant isn't it!

I don't think that's their sense of humour, I think that's for real... I worked in Japan some time ago they are utterly bonkers each and every one of them!

They certainly have an unusual take on life. My cousin lives in Tokyo and has a photo of a cabbage vending machine on a street corner. Fantastic!!

You can tell I've got far too much time on my hands at the moment. I've been surfing the web all morning. ;)
