Welcome,Matt!

"The Man in My Life I Let Him Tell Me What To Do!"...

Not to worry guys,I haven't fallen over and cracked my head open or fallen in love stupid with some random fella! In an attempt to get fit again and run the London Marathon next year - yes, you heard me right, my madness is never ending - I have started seeing Matt,a personal trainer,who I pay to, indeed, tell me 'what to do' to get back in shape. He is lovely and very sweet. He totally gets me which, in hindsight, makes me think that maybe I should have started paying boys to be with me a lot sooner...(obviously I am only messing). A joke apart though, if you would like to support me and a bunch of other folks going out to South Africa in July 2008 with Habitat for Humanity to work on a building project affiliated to the renown Desmond Tutu's community project, please do not hesitate to contact me. I'd be delighted to suggest various ways for you to get involved. (It is NOT all about money!!!) Right, better get down to the gym - still a long,long way to go!(",)

How much is this Habitat for Humanity lark going to set someone back?

Ivonne said...

it's £300 donation per person, your flight cost + expenses - all together it's a figure of £1200. It's dearer than most charities,but it's not mere charity - it's a life transforming experience based on cultural/human exchange, and you learn to be a builder! ;-)HOpe I've answered your question,Jay.

Your good deeds are an inspiration to us, Miss Ivonne. I've been reading your recent posts and enjoying your insightful remarks about Jane Austen and intelligent women generally.

Reading between the lines, I got the impression you believe many Italian men to be bottom-pinchers. Am I correct?

You are too kind, Gorilla Bananas, and indeed, your perception is not mistaken - my expirience of Italian men you 'meet on the street', sort of speak, is that they can be increadibly shallow macho-wannabes bottom pinchers (sad enough). However,there are still gentlemen who give me hope to believe in the opposite sex...both nationally and internationally.
