Ha. I have one of those! I've not really been using it.

My other favourite garden tool word is 'riddle' (sieve)

Ok, Rachel - I'm itching for a new game so I'll butt in...

Things we aim to do this April (small is big in these corona-times...)

Affirm my aims for this year - lose weight and get fit - both of which are only possible if I Abstain from and Abhorr the old A - demon

:lol:

Exercise.
I am a gym person and really enjoy weight training so looking forward to the gyms reopening. Hopefully I still have a little bit of muscle left to work on

Improving Fitness seems to be our main priority! Natural enough, I guess, after the combination of winter and lockdown.

Make Idiosyncratic additions to the Games thread? Impress my boss? (Nigh well impossible.)
