It's raining, it's pouring
Bloody threw it down all weekend it did apart from around 90 minutes on Saturday
when the sun was smiling right over our house. Poured down all day Saturday and yesterday, finally easing up for us
to get out of the house around 3pm when the three of us had a nice walk around the Botanical Gardens
(left), the best open space on the island and it was great to see it so busy with families and kids exploring it's hidden charms.
I did actually get to play tennis early Sunday but we gave the Rugby Classic
final a large swerve Saturday evening as it would've been a mud bath up there. I thought the rain might have suited the Lions but they were thrashed by New Zealand in the final 24-0. The Argentinian Pumas retained the Plate by beating Australia 11-7.
I spent most of the end of last week trying to get out of a work trip this week to Salt Lake City. In the end I managed to get one of my boys to go in my place over the weekend. I have a conference on the island that I am committed to starting tonight and have friend here I would really like to see on Wednesday before I spend 24 hours in New York on Thursday. More importantly I just don't want to be away from home much at the moment, although after 3 defeats I nearly evicted the poor love
before kick off Saturday. But after a stern talking to, like those at The Valley she redeemed herself nicely.
