Did you hear that - a loud thunderous sound - yep - that was my balance ball going POP!! One of my May goals was to make my balance ball work for me at my office. I tried it a few weeks ago with another ball, but it was too low in air and I had to do some re-adjusting at home before trying again. Tried again today. I am not sure if it was the fact that I have a limited desk area or that the little cupboard just to the back of me that has a hinge sticking out of it might have caused the big explosion, but whatever it was, it really didn't work out today. I thank my lucky stars that there was NO ONE within ear shot or was even in the office when the big blow up happened. I fell hard onto a very hard floor - so much for that carpet that went out almost 10 years ago under my seat. Had to share my little laughable moment with you....

..................And now..................................drum roll please..........................

37 - 20 - 20 - 37 - hut hut hike!!!!!

ROARRRRRRR - (can you hear the crowd in the background)
