Well done Sir Andy!

Wow, what a superb performance by Andy Murray to win the biggest prize in tennis! A few years back he was immature and unpopular, fairly skinny and lacking in physical power and stamina, and not up to it mentally. But he has worked incredibly hard and won the hearts of Brits everywhere, turned himself into a physical beast who takes no prisoners, and has the mental strength of a true champion. He beat Novak in five-sets last summer to follow up his gold medal with the US Open, but his straight -sets win to hoist the Wimbledon trophy and relieve 77-years of British sporting torture was a stunning achievement of the highest magnitude. Bravo Andy!

It's Only Rock 'n' Roll but I like it !

I stayed up last Saturday night to watch Mick and the Rolling Stones live from Glastonbury and was absolutely gob-smacked with the quality and passionate performance of a group of 70-year-old men celebrating their 50th year together. It was brilliant and being a Stones fan anyway I loved it, but even those who aren’t Stones fans could not help but be inspired by the passion and energy shown by the band during the two-hour concert. I’ve never seen a fitter 70-year-old man than Mick as he energetically strutted his stuff and showed why the Rolling Stones have been so popular during the past 50 years. Wow!

On the sports front I’ve missed most of Wimbledon so far and didn’t see Rafa and Roger’s defeats, which for me take a bit of wind out the tournament’s sails, especially since both conquerors didn’t get past the next round. But yesterday’s match on Centre Court was brilliant as Andy Murray came back from two sets down to win an absolutely thrilling match to move on to the last four. And the first match between Del Potro and Ferrer was also top quality with no shortage of drama. Andreas and Tansy had tickets and what a treat for their first trip to Wimbledon as it was a fantastic afternoon of sporting excellence!

JM and Olivier have been helping out their local community with volunteer work after the dreadful flooding in the Pyrenees, which is typical of them as they’re a couple of outstanding blokes and citizen’s. Bravo boys!

The planning is up and running so don’t hesitate to book as soon as you know your dates.

Gill and I are off shortly to watch Millie and Katie in their District Sports day at Charterhouse. Should be fun and I’ll post some photos later.
