As some of you will know I wasÂ devastated when my beloved cross trainer died on me.
A new part was ordered, but 3 months later thisÂ promisedÂ new part has yet to be delivered even though paid for !!
I was beginning to think my cross training days were over.
Then this week I had some news that made me speechless, a friend of ours in Cambridge has decided he no longer wants his cross trainer and amazingly he wants to give it to me.
I told him I thought he was mad to get rid of it and his reply was “I havent used it for ages. Â If you will use it then you will be happy and i will be happy that it is being used and has a new home where it is useful. Â So good all round ”
and of course I shall LOVE it !!
It soon becameÂ obvious that I could not afford to re-join the gym, carry on with my pilates class or buy theÂ refurbished cross trainer I so desired.
IÂ wasn’tÂ even sure the shed Â roof was even high enough for a cross trainer either 🙁
Then oneÂ eveningÂ last week while walking past a charity shop in Cambridge I spotted a cross trainer just sitting there with my name on it
The following morning we went toÂ investigate, the price was good at Â£50 but no one was sure if it actually worked 🙁 and it had no electricÂ cableÂ with it.
A quick visit to tesco to buy some batteries and after lots of fiddling around we were happy that it worked, to some fashion !
So I bought it, then wondered how I would ever get it back to Kings Lynn but asÂ usual Geoff is never put off by these things and its now in my shed.
I have an electric cable but its veryÂ temperamental and although the power is getting through nothing works and all power dies after a few mins. ( update no power at all tonight )
BUT watch this space because if it can be fixed I know the right man to do the job 🙂
and as for the shed roof being tall enough, well if I was just a fraction taller I would have a very sore head indeed !
