To the lady in full make-up, hairdresser hairdo and designer sportswear, casually flipping through a magazine while cycling .00001 km/hr, glancing up occasionally to see if anyone is checking her out: GO HARD OR GO HOME. You’d burn more calories sitting in front of the TV and scoffing chocolate biscuits and the men are too busy checking themselves out to worry about you.

To the wanna be body builders lifting huge weights and then suddenly dropping the weights on the floor and swearing at the top of their lungs because they can’t finish a set: USE LIGHTER WEIGHTS! You won’t come across as a complete fool and we won’t have to worry about the floor caving in.

To the guys who use the dumbbells and put them in the WRONG PLACE: REMEMBER FROM WHENCE THEY CAME! I know you only use them for warm ups and the difference between a 15lb dumbbell and a 12.5lb may not be that evident to you but for a tiny lady like me, it means the difference between 2 days or A WHOLE WEEK of recovery.

To the gang of ELEVENTY people bagsing a machine so that nobody can have a go on it: HAVE SOME MANNERS! Spread yourselves around a bit.

To the men in general: USE DEODORANT for goodness sake. There are even signs when you enter. WHO NEEDS REMINDING on basic hygiene? You all, apparently.

To the aerobics instructor: Please change your mix of music. I’m getting really tired of Britney and Madonna ……..oh and Duran Duran for an aerobic class? What???

2 year old: I want roti sugar!

Tasmiya: Here you go.

2 year old: No, I don’t want roti sugar!

I want noodles!

Tasmiya: *sigh* OK. Let me make it for you.

(places bowl of noodles on table)

2 year old: I don’t want noodles!

Tasmiya: How about you try to make a wee in the toilet.

2 year old: I don’t want to make a wee!

Tasmiya: Ok fine, just don’t go and make it on the carpet – call me if you need to go and I will help you.

(moments later)

2 year old: I MADE A WEE ON THE CARPET!

Tasmiya: ARGGHGH!

2 year old: I want to go see Naani.

Tasmiya: We have things to do at home so maybe another day.

2 year old: BUT I WANT TO SEE NAANI!!

(managing to get all house stuff in order, get the boys ready and drive to Mum’s. Pull into the driveway)

2 year old: Awww I didn’t want to come HERE!

Tasmiya: *sigh*
