Monday is a Bank Holiday which I spent a chunk of cutting our
Then it’s back to work on Tuesday. I bike on Wednesday, which is also tennis where we find out that the Tennis Centre is being sold to the LTA.
Which hopefully means they’ll finally modernise the place.
My Dad accidently buys some ground coffee, so I go out and
get him a cafetiere so that he can use it. Turns out to be the best present ever,
he loves it and now makes every coffee he makes with it.
On Friday we meet up with L’s sister and family for a few
beers in the Silk Mill and then a meal in the Exeter. Which is excellent and the first time we've done that in years.
On Saturday I’m at an Agility Show at Thoresby Park. After a
first run where I wasn’t sure what course the Lad was doing but it wasn’t the
same one as me his second run was much better. He did everything in the right
order but sneakily added two extra tunnels into the course. He is fond of his tunnels.
In the afternoon’s first run he has two poles down, misses
his A Frame contact and misses his weave entry but everything was again in the
right order, this time with no extra tunnels and not eliminated. We may have racked up 20
faults but that’s progress. So we won’t mention his fourth run.
Meanwhile L Parkruns in the week that we got a strange email
from the Berlin Parkrun that we did pre-lockdown. Obviously a lot of our Covid
rules are barking mad but the approach at Berlin parkrun seems even madder
still. You have to prove your vaccination status or that you have had Covid or that
you have had a negative test but only when you cross the line after running...
or you don’t get a time. Brilliant!
I have to do a bit of work remotely on Sunday as we go live on a major project then in in the evening I go for a session on the track at the Velodrome which finally reopens now that they aren’t doing vaccinations there anymore. You could say just in time to shut everything down again for the pantomime.
