The lad from Guernsey taking bronze in the 400m hurdles - the joy
I'm going to miss the games. They really do feel like the friendly games (well apart from the vicious netball!) and I've loved supporting the home country athletes - whilst favouring the English of course but if not an English athlete then I'm supporting any other home nations.
Big style. However today we took him for a walk around sherwood pines. A fantastic place. I noticed he had a Tick 1” below his back end ? guess who had the honour or removing it. It did not gladden the heart. ?
Eddie Mair…a splendid, fearless and empathetic LBC presenter and interviewer - just four years from stomping the BBC patch - and a proud Dundonian to boot. I’m going to miss him when he retires in a couple of weeks.
Just took little lad for a bike ride along the river bank, stopped for a drink and a salmon promptly leaps out of the water.
Must be plenty of flies on the surface today. No fishermen although they were out in force a couple of weeks ago when the river level was up after heavy rain.
