TWO TOYS IN ONE WEEK

Yay! I finally got to buy two things that I have been wanting for ages now.


The first is a treadmill that Alex and I bought at the start of the week. I have needed one for ages to help with my whiplash injury. It has been really hard to stay fit since the car accident as my back and neck causes to much pain when I do normal exercise or play sport. Walking is just about the only thing that I can do, but even walking the streets causes to much pain to my lower back due to the uneven roads and paths. I have been wanting one for ages but needed to wait until we had some money. Finally that day has come!!!




The second is my new Canon Pixma IP4600 printer that I bought yesterday. I have been wanting one to do my own prints of my art at home to sell. I was finding that the photo shops that were doing the prints before weren't getting the colours correct and, honestly the staff didn't seem to know much about anything. The prints would be so dull and nothing like the colours I had used. I just wasn't comfortable selling work that I myself was not happy with. Now I can do it all from home and guarantee good quality prints.

I could sure use a treadmill to tackle all the extra weight I've put on since December. :( Congrats on your new toys!

Love,

well, don't know much about printers... but...the treadmill I do know. I love mine...have had it years and use it almost daily.

In the winter it is often too cold and there is just too much snow to walk far in...or icy...and ever since my sister fell on ice and got a severe concussion..I ain't doin' it. I workout at home and love it.... we have a tv in the exercise room and time just races by.... while I walk several miles...I hope you enjoy it!
