...is going to be GREAT!
Thanks to Andy Murrayfor waiting until I got home from Gordon's summer concert last night before blasting into the 4th round of Wimbledon in a nail-biting clock-watching end to a thrillerI'll catch his next match but if he progresses, would someone PLEASE text me so I can tune in from the ship?
When we get home I'll be counting down the days to the Olympics. It was an honour to witness the Flame's procession through Cleethorpes, and I've been quite moved watching (some of) the Flame carriers in the rest of the United Kingdom. The community spirit which has been displayed has been marvellous, did you know Louth's Mayoress even turned out in a sausage costume (in honour of the great Lincolnshire sausage which has just been turned down for a PGI) but of course she's being derided by some who said the outfit was offensive because it looked like a giant penis. (Please choose your keywords carefully if googling for a picture, Pailaway and Auntie Lil). We didn't witness it but Gordon, who is used to hobnobbing with the Great and Good, calls the Mayoral party "the Chain gang", so he when I told him about the Mayoress' costume.

In the early hours of yesterday morning, Gordon's home was burgled. Entry was gained through the rear of the house; they found his keys and legged it with his car as well as 2 TVs, 2 clocks, laptop, cash left out for the cleaner, kitchen house phone handset (must have thought it was a mobile phone?) and the projector which we use for our Blue Cross talks. They tried to wrench the large TV off the wall in the lounge but failed. The police were thorough and found his car quite quickly, that's still with SOCO but hopefully he'll get it back today.
I am counting our blessings that no-one in the house was hurt, especially Snoopy who is a Jack Russell, I don't know if they *knew* him, or that just because he didn't bark or attack them, they left him alone.
Suffice to say that new security measures are being put into place, this was Gordon's first burglary and he intends it being the last.
I am still upset at the thought of what might have been and last night was scared to go to bed for the first time since I've been living alone. It's not a nice feeling, I hope it soon goes.

Assuming you survive the initial radioactive fallout, would you want to live in a post-apocalyptic world?

Yesterday while in Tescos with my mother, I got rammed from behind by a dot.com trolley the pusher didn't even apologise. Luckily for me it wasn't my already-injured leg, but still, I am and
I felt so awful I went to the checkout, where I came over a bit faint. I can't fault the first-aiders who attended to me, but I really could have done without another bad leg, when I only had one good leg
I'm at the at 11.40am, so I can still make the 3 OAP Homes visits this afternoon with Gordon & Snoopywhich will no doubt cheer me up.
