Up early, heart pounding. I will say no more.
Here's to a fine day, looking set for a sunny one here on the estate (and we appear to be fox-free at the moment, so praise be). Really enjoyed yesterday's show and Eddie M was on fine form I thought; thoughtful, open and profound. He was wearing some natty yellow trousers too which takes a certain panache and je ne sais quoi (which looks really stupid written down). There is, in my opinion, no such thing as a bad Eddie Marsan film.
As I wrote that paragraph, the ping from the inbox signified the arrival of child 2's A level results. What a terrifying sound. Normally so innocuous, you would normally pay it no heed but today? Oh boy. I remember my dad chucking an envelope at me in my tent as we camped somewhere (Cornwall probably) and the heart pounding in EXACTLY the same way. In those far off days, my 2 B's and a C was considered pretty good and fine enough anyway for Warwick. It would be unwise to blog about child 2's results as 1) she hasn't said I could and 2) Grandmas don't know yet. Etiquette matters.
We move on.
Nige is back with a tasty chocolate tart for you (well me really) and oldies please on the subject of CHEATING. The world of Scrabble has been shocked to its core by the revelations of cheating in the US National Scrabble Championships. One of its young players was caught with 2 blank tiles under his shoe and has been expelled. Songs for the cheats please!
Have a sunny and coherent Thursday, see you after 5

    Good Morning All

    #102 3 word Friday (if Simon did that) SEE YOU TOMORROW!

    I hope the fashion police are still asleep because wet weather gear is called for this morning. It is chucking it down.

    I can't remember what the percentage of folk getting A was in our day Amelia. I wasn't up there anyway ;)

    Have a safe morning in this bad weather and see you over the page.

    What a joyous show (well stagnating financial markets aside). Laughing at the confession while ironing so it must have been good! Was there a hint of Larry when reading out the verdict from Simon?

    Just listened now as was “entertaining”. Well lazy summer afternoon lunch where the lovely local deli does all the work.

    Loved Simon’s own three worders, clearly so proud of his daughter. Hope he feels the same at 3am.

    And lovely to have Nigel back too. I have missed him. We don’t need a 3 second rule in this house, dog always gets there first regardless.

    Is it me or does 27% seem a huge percentage of students getting A & A*? Shona, Flo, cBzz (have I missed any Scots?) I am sure it was less than 10% of folk who got A’s in our day?

    I also loved my mention, another little dance round the kitchen. Congrats to Jenny & Deebee (Sunday name and all and a great tune).

    Shona - *whispers* 2 more sleeps (well one and half for me as I have to get up rather early, the joys of living in the middle of nowhere!) And I get to see my sisters new house too. So excited!

    All this and almost Wittertainment tomorrow. Simon & the Ooyd’s, either a dodgy 70’s band or a brand of worming cream me thinks.

    Off to watch Eddie M.

    Maybe a bit of a let up for us in the South West?

    Problem with blog telling me all sorts of porkies - like 'We have difficulty posting your ... etc etc' resulted in my double post. How odd it looks!

    Just thought I'd mention that 'termptation' in post #96 is a typo.
