A great visit with Hughes and Martine!
29 May 2012
We’ve just had Hughes and Martine visiting from Val d’Isere for a few days, and we had a fantastic time. (Many of you will know Martine from the Val Agence as she’s worked there for many years now) The weather was stunning with blue skies and temperatures between 25 and 30C. We had the BBQ going nightly and ate outside for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the weather couldn’t have been better. Everyone in England needed it, as did Hughes and Martine, who’ve endured similar of late to us.
Hughes and I played golf on Friday afternoon but we were disappointed with our performances so we decided to wake up at 5:30AM on Saturday to play again! We started at 6:15 and had the course to ourselves. As the manager said, “Millionaires golf!” They had a great visit and have now moved on to Bristol where their daughter Ailisee is going to school.
I must mention my delight with the Hammers going straight back up and although we were probably outplayed on the day, we deserved it over the course of the season. At the end of the day Blackpool missed their chances because they lacked Premiership quality striking in front of goal while the Hammers took their chances beautifully. And what about Didier Drogby and Chelsea! It was fabulous finish to a great campaign and thoroughly deserved, and a wonderful end to Didier time in the Premiership. Now bring on the tennis, the cricket,, the Open, the Euros and the Olympics. What a summer of sport!
