Off to Canada!

25 July 2017

Millie, Katie and I are off to Canada July 27th and we’re all really looking forward to it. Unfortunately Gill isn’t coming but has a trip to Greece late-August to look forward to and we’re thinking of a long trip to Canada next summer starting in Calgary but then heading to Vancouver and then the Whistler area to visit my friend Tony and his family. That will suit Gill a lot better as there will be new places to see and lots of out-door activity.

Millie is in a golf tournament today and she and I have played in several together so far this summer with at least two more to come in August, while Katie loves her gym club and her trampoline in the garden, and has now graduated to back-tucks and back lay-outs. She also spent a day at tennis camp, which pleased Gill. Gill’s wrist is slightly better and she managed a 40-minute gentle hit with Millie yesterday so fingers crossed it continues to improve. My hip seems to have settled down for the most part and I can’t tell you what a relief that is!

Needless to say I was extremely pleased with Roger Federer’s win at Wimbledon. It was another stunning performance as he won the tournament without dropping a set, which hasn’t been done since Borg in 1979, and Roger’s Slam tally is now a 19 and counting. He couldn’t win the US Open as well could he? It’s incredibly that he and Nadal are back at the top of the men’s game after so many years of dominance by Djokovic and with a few Slams mixed in from Stan-the-Man and Murray there hasn’t been too many opportunities for Rafa and Roger until this year where they’ve rolled back the years to the delight of tennis fans everywhere. (Well, at least Penny G, Penny Mc, and I)

Millie has been taking her health and fitness very seriously and has just today launched her own website that she designed totally by herself. Bravo Millie! If you want to have a look you can find it here It’s pretty cool Millie!

I won’t be answering emails while I’m away so don’t think I’m ignoring you if you don’t get a reply. I’ll be back August 10th and will catch up on any ski school business then.

Have a happy summer and stay tuned!

PS Millie scored 36 points today and says she left a few out there!
