The Persuit of Hypertrophy

My name is Adele and I am 31. I live in Greater Manchester in the UK with my 9 year old daughter, Hannah, my partner Andy and a cat called Penny. I am interested in strength training and climbing. I am fairly heavily tattooed. I have an amazing family and boyfriend. On the whole I am happy.

We have had Kipper just a couple of weeks and I love that little pup so very much.
In these weeks I have taught Kipper to sit, lie down, stop at the roadside and he is house trained, and can spend a short time off the lead all with encouragement (and doggie treats help too :p)
