Sporty Saturday

Today is British GP qualifying, Ladies final at Wimbledom and the troch is coming through our town.

So very excited.

Said on the news this morning that the organisers were trying to discourage people from attending qualifying today because they feared that the car parks wouldn't be able to cope tomorrow if they were used today.  I believe they are quite wet!  Not sure how that will pan out.  OH and I went with the in laws to the last GP in Valencia, and the stadium was packed on the Saturday.  You also had to buy tickets to get in, so I'm not sure that if you'd bought a ticket you would just stay at home.  Not sure if you can get to Silverstone by train.

We have Prize Giving at DD's school later today.  Not sure we will be standing around afterwards like we normally do - already had a text warning us that it is very muddy, and it has just started raining very heavily too.

Quite fine here. I am waiting for my friend to arrive with her girls, and I've let OD go on the train to Rochester with a couple of friends. Trying not to have a nervous breakdown here...lol. They are all sensible kids I just worry too much after the trouble they had at one of the local parks, not them I might but another group of kids, which I've since discovered are known to the police, so OD's group have decided they won't go to that park anymore...phew

To give you something to do to clean it jaq?

I worked this morning and then did some gardening and I've just done a budget.

I worked out what we earnt, and thought 'blimey, we should be ok' - then worked out what we spent - and we have £47 left a month apparently....  not that well off then.

Hope your ED gets back safely, Sparkle!  I know you have to give them some independence, but I don't like it!

DD now officially broken up.

We saw the torch we were actually right by a change over piont. YS didn't like it way too many people and noisey for him but he watched.

I would love to have seen the torch, but it just hasn't happened for us.  You are lucky, Brandie, and I hope that your YS can learn to appreciate what he has seen.   At the school where I volunteer, they were planning on doing the Olympics as a project for the summer half term. They have done zilch, ran out of time. I can understand why, but I still think it is quite sad.  The Olympics will probably never come to this country again during these children's lifetimes.  That said, my own DD is moaning that we have got too many tickets ....... Think she would prefer to be at home on FB.
