Queen of Ping Pong – sort of………………

At last, a Sunday Lie-In – well until half eight anyway -then I did something else I haven’t done for weeks -sat with a coffee and read a book (not that book!). I don’t know what came over me. Perhaps the fact I woke with a banging head and the beginnings of a cold added to my ‘let’s laze about’ syndrome, though to be fair the rugby kit is washed and away, Fluff the pig is back outside (the rats have gone – hopefully) and the wash basket is empty – I have done somethings, just not all of them. Still it’s only five more days until the big holidays and then I’ll have loads of time to catch up with jobs, so I’m not stressing -yet!

Another job for today was wading my way through the ridiculous amounts of photos I’ve taken over the last few weeks – mainly rugby related – and upload them to the Club website. The first 1000 are sorted – only 2000 to go……………..

In between the photo cropping and fixing I’ve been playing table tennis -one of Jack’s current favourite pastimes. Trouble is I’m rubbish – if it were a full size table I’d be awesome – but it’s not, so I’m awful. I can knock it against walls ceilings even the lights, but the table – no chance. Still Jack must have been having an off day cos after weeks of trying I ‘Dawn the Destroyer’ finally beat him by ONE WHOLE POINT. Wahoo

 Back to work tomorrow

Only Five days left

Bring it on

Olympic Irritations

So we now know the Olympics is almost upon us – why? Well the torch relay has started, a 70 day journey around the country, giving people a chance to see it pass by. A fantastic event – especially for those lucky enough to carry it. Sad thing is we’re only on Day 2 and I for one am totally disillusioned with the whole thing.

The relay is named ‘our moment to shine’, but just why have some people been chosen? Take Dan Lobb from ITV’s Daybreak, a failed proffesional tennis player, now a TV presenter ( a bad one!)  I’ve nothing against the guy, but just why is he having a chance, apparently quite a few people have got ‘media’ places – why. Nominations were meant to be for people who have gone that extra mile, overcome massive hurdles – real people. Then there’s the issue of overseas people getting a go. Where I live, two of the people carrying the torch are Norwegian – still living in Norway – why are they getting a chance??? Don’t tell me we ran out of British nominees!! Now some muppet who is due to carry the flame on Monday is selling it on Ebay – £100,500.00 at the minute – with an hour to go. I have asked if the money’s going to charity – but no reply yet!

On the plus side there are some genuine people who deserve their chance, so I’ll focus on them and pray that the one carrying the torch past the end of my road is a real one……………..

A bit annoyed

In a better mood tomorrow

Bring it on
