Don’t whisper it too loudly, but I’ve bought my sons new trainers for Christmas, which got me thinking. Or rather, got my dearly beloved wife thinking.
‘Once Christmas is out of the way, why don’t you start exercising in the New Year? I mean, you’re not long off 50,’ she said.
Proof, if proof were needed, that romance in Housedad Towers will never die.
But she may have a point. We eat, er, well because of my devotion to my Recipe Shed, but it’s not exactly helpful to the waistline.
So what’s a Housechef to do? Cut out the fat and carbs and eat like Kate Moss’s rabbit? Or dig out my running shoes, then throw them away after seeing the moth-holes, and buy some more? Hmm, perhaps this range of men’s trainers from JD Sports might be just the job (see what I did there?)
