5am is the only time training can occur I thought?
Feb 10, 2016 1:18 PM # 
No, because then someone gets miffed that they have to stay home and be woken by the kids while you go and have fun. So no-one ends up exercising.

Took the dogs this morning as a compromise so that the wife could sleep in with the unsettled bub. Not sure who got the worse deal but i do know the wife was still asleep when i left for work at 7.50am

Tooms - so there is an advantage to living with a relative non-exerciser! Nobody fights me to get up and have fun at 5am!

Gee Boltboi, I hope Ali doesn't read AP - I doubt many lovely wives would appreciate being termed "the wife" when they have a perfectly good name that they usually go by!

And Fletch, absolutely! It's not that Jen's fighting me to get up at 5am, but if we're both awake it always *seems* like it would sooo much nicer to be out exercising. But then there's the matter of actually choosing to set an alarm and get up early. I'm failing at that too at the moment!

He would have to call her A to keep with the trend.

I think Ali should join AP and her username can be Wifey. :)

On another note, it looks like the map linked to AP is now <5yrs old as it shows houses in Baldivis, possibly even Boltboi's house (I'm not entirely sure which one it is)! Weirdly though the houses in Harrisdale (which are older than that) are not there.

I like that a dog jog can get a middle-aged man's heart rate up to 213bpm!! I that only used to happen to him when he walked along Cottesloe beach in the height of summer.

As I said the Hr strap is spewing out useless data!! Tricky, the invitation has been there for you and Tash to come around and see our new plot. Surely you can work it out by the ute out the front with a big pile of sand in the back. House with blue roof next to vacant lot on the south side of branchton loop.

"ute out the front and big pile of sand in the back"

That would be the rule rather than the exception in these parts....

I have actually already seen it. If I follow recent trends, I probably won't make it around for a visit until your kid is at least two.

My apologies Tricky, yes I now remember your journey from Karnup Rd into our place towing a trailer. Now more so than ever my brain is less functional......
Feb 12, 2016 6:28 AM # 
Tash that's not very nice. Don't you want to meet Dalto jnr?
Feb 12, 2016 6:41 AM # 
I'm just being realistic. We are usually too busy to go on couple dates and people who have kids don't like having childless couples over often because we never offer to change nappies :P
Feb 12, 2016 8:33 AM # 
Why on earth would you offer to change a nappy? That would just be silly when the parent could do it in less than a minute without any funny faces.
Feb 12, 2016 10:03 AM # 
I am on a good run of late. The nappies I change seem to be of numbers ones rather than two's!
Feb 12, 2016 10:24 AM # 
It's a good thing you weren't changing apostrophes. You wouldn't be so lucky.
Feb 12, 2016 11:46 AM # 
You can't count nappies yet Boltboi, they only count once your heir apparent moves onto solid foods. I recommend a punnet of blueberries early on in the piece to see just how rapidly an intact blueberry can transit an immature digestive system!

hahha - I tend to agree with this statement - solids is a whole new ball game.

Is this what they call "Dad jokes" ??
Feb 14, 2016 5:46 AM # 
No, joking dads. Or should that be: No joking, dads. Perhaps best of all; No joking dads.
Feb 14, 2016 5:48 AM # 
Feb 14, 2016 5:55 AM # 
Dad's joking?
Dads' joking?
Dat's joking?

I just thought the comma might want a change of scenery.
