Still sniffling and coughing but, I'm feeling much better in myself. Just the last dregs of the cold now which will pass. Meanwhile, some sort of agreement with the Insurance company regarding 'The Leak'. So, nearly two years on and repairs w... Read more

Ha! Why is she blithering on about Wimbledon you wonder - "it's so last month" I bet you all think I'm going to talk about how watching Wimbledon inspired me to pick up my racket and go play on the so called 'public courts' in the loc... Read more

So, Monday was weigh in day and I'd gained 4 oz. I'm not too bothered by that. If I'd lost 4 oz's I wouldn't be shouting from the roof tops after all. And lets face it, one less cup of tea, or a trip to the loo before weigh in could make all ... Read more
