Andy Murray

So Friday was a bit of an unexpectedly big news day. To the point where I wasn’t at all surprised at the end of an item on 5 Live with kids paying tribute that they clarified he wasn’t dead. As sad as it is that he’s having to retire rather than deciding to, I still… Continue reading

Tennis

I haven’t recovered from the US open yet. I stayed up late watching/listening to the tennis on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, and my body hates me so has been waking me early for weeks. I am tired. I was tired by the time the men’s and women’s finals started, never mind after two sets!… Continue reading

Still hot

I haven’t posted or commented much or done much at all the past few weeks. It’s just been too hot, most of the time. Plus there was Wimbledon and then I got a bad cold afterwards. This weekend has been ‘cold’ (low 20sC) so I’m getting everything in now before going back to mostly just… Continue reading

Long weekend

The weather forecast said it was going to be hot this weekend and I needed to clean the house, so I got most of the cleaning done in the week and just had a bit to finish off on Saturday morning. Which was good, but it’s been chilly in the mornings and hot (if not… Continue reading

A week off with sport

I took this week off from everything that wasn’t work and sleep (ie the things I have to do) to watch the Winter Paralympics. Mostly wheelchair curling, because there are only so many times you can watch someone sky down a hill before it gets samey. Although, as with the Olympics, I preferred the snowboarding… Continue reading

Where did all the sport go?

If there was ever a good time to have a cold that made me feel crap and set my asthma off so I spent a week and a half working from home, during the Winter Olympics is that time. There was sport on TV for the whole time I was working (and before and after… Continue reading

Sport and writing

It took me a little while to get used to the change from athletics from swimming, but now I’m loving the swimming. I still record it, partly because it starts before I finish work, but also because I’m not that interested in all the chat. Mostly I just like the swimming. And they repeat bits… Continue reading

Too much sport on TV

I’ve been very watching sport. And some other things, but mostly the sport. Wimbledon fortnight is like Christmas to tennis fans. Only better than Christmas because it lasts two weeks and the shops aren’t closed. Jo Konta was great. What gets me is less how good she is and more how calm she has become…. Continue reading

Politics and tennis

I keep trying to post, but I’m either out or in and distracted by tennis or in and have a hundred things to do or in and too tired to do anything. Today I’m in (and have the day off) and am too tired to do anything, but it doesn’t feel so bad because it’s… Continue reading
