I have become the king of the short week recently, and that won't be changing very soon. Tomorrow night I fly back to the UK for the end of the last week of the school holidays. My son and I will be based at my parents in East Sussex with me returning on the following Monday which is the Labour Day holiday both in Bermuda and the USA. This does of course give me the opportunity to see my first game of the season on Saturday lunchtime at The Valley as until now my only live action was the preluder to all of this at Bournemouth's Fitness First Stadium on the first day of August
The weekend's are flying by at the moment as we are on contraction countdown. After a late and drunken night Thursday far from befitting my age, Friday we had dinner with some good friends from Chicago who were in Bermuda for a family wedding on Saturday. An evening with them made me feel even more 'Chicago homesick.' Saturday we were invited to the wedding too, as our Chicago mate's sister and her now husband became our surrogate best friends upon our arrival here last July. It was a superb day held in the midst of a wonderful traditional Bermuda setting on a private island
. We left in the early hours of the morning as the pool party was well under way and I was clearly listed as the next person to be thrown in.
I was half asleep throughout a tennis lesson on Sunday morning but followed this with a massage to stir the senses back into life and then we had friends come over with their new baby son in the afternoon to end a delectable weekend.
