Its woken up younger dd grin
I did ogle the police men though, well, you've got to, haven't you? All mulling about in uniform looking swave and tooled up with batons!

Raahh Mon 01-Jul-13 12:36:06

VAMOS FERRER!! Don't lose this game!

Morning campers. Had a lovely night on Saturday but did feel a bit delicate yesterday. There was some South African liquer with a name like frangipani (but not that) being passed aruond, that tasted nice and harmless at the time but I paid the price the next morning!

seize - have you done your knee in sympathy for Del Potato? Lindsay Davenport was speculating he might not be ok, and if he's not, I will CRY. I said the other day when your nan was eating maltesers she was my kind of girl, and I definitely think so now having heard about her Asda antics! (Was it big Asda in Llansamlet?!).

Dodig's face isn't quite right is it, it's like not all the parts of it belong to him. He has a bit of a lendl look about his mouth I think.

Hope all those of you at work manage to catch a bit of tennis.

I have an extra bone in my knee that docs would not take out while I was growing up.... It is the reason I can't run and jog. It doesn't hurt unless I run or jog! Turn on it sharply or it gets very, very cold outside...
Its my reason to remain in front of Tv all day today with occasional peeps out the front window to see if the police are shifting up our way... I will know by days end what is going on there - a neighbour will come tell me, that's how it is here.

Raahh Mon 01-Jul-13 12:37:37

His teeth are wrong
<continues assassination of the physical features of Dodig>
poor man.
grin

siezethenight Mon 01-Jul-13 12:37:38

Nope (Farley* We have an Asda in Gorseinon now! We have joined the 21st century!

FarleyD Mon 01-Jul-13 12:37:42

Ferrer need a pair of trainers with a hole cut in the front so his poorly toe can breathe.

NotAQueef Mon 01-Jul-13 12:38:30

Hi all! (reposting as posted on the old thread!)

I am back at work now after having a month off ill so won't have my full attention to pay to Magic Monday today.

I do, however, have 2 monitors at work so hopefully can have iPlayer on the go on one of them.
Stupid scheduling for the Brits playing early today, meaning most of the home fans won't get to watch.

siezethenight Mon 01-Jul-13 12:39:19

His gob hangs open far too much for my liking Raahh I want to slap it shut for him....
Come on Ferrer!

Raahh Mon 01-Jul-13 12:39:32

Right- don't let him ace you out of the set!

FarleyD Mon 01-Jul-13 12:40:46

Crikey, these two are going to sleep well the way they're slogging at that ball.

Raahh Mon 01-Jul-13 12:43:28

Oh dear.

I saw the score and shouted 'Jesus' blush at which point Dodig fell over.

'Jesus fall over?' asked DD2, in a worried voice grin

FarleyD Mon 01-Jul-13 12:43:40

Glad though I'm sure you are that you're better Queef, you should have timed it better so you had another two weeks off ill! Then you're scheduling worries would count for naught!

FarleyD Mon 01-Jul-13 12:44:19

Ahh your poor DD2 raahh!

Raahh Mon 01-Jul-13 12:46:05

VAMOS FERRER

Raahh Mon 01-Jul-13 12:46:26

<cries>

FarleyD Mon 01-Jul-13 12:46:52

Oh dear.

Dodig has a very pointy nose.

Witt Mon 01-Jul-13 12:47:00

Can we have a vote? Is it Henman Hill or Murray Mount? [hint: It's Henman Hill!]

FarleyD Mon 01-Jul-13 12:47:12

Not that mine is anything to write home about.

Raahh Mon 01-Jul-13 12:48:23

Henman Hill.

Or Robson's....erm....

Dodig SPITS.

Kill him

siezethenight Mon 01-Jul-13 12:48:27

Henman Hill! That's where we are all going next year on Super Saturday to sit and watch tennis and get drunk!

siezethenight Mon 01-Jul-13 12:49:33

Gross, just gross - spitting....
He's just an awful individual.
Come on Ferrer.....!

Raahh Mon 01-Jul-13 12:50:08

Much better game than he's had so far- maybe he needs a set (or 2) to warm up?

NotAQueef Mon 01-Jul-13 12:50:53

I know, damn me and my poor infection planning! I could have milked it from the Doctor.
Bloody DP who doesn't even really like tennis is off today and gleefully winding me up about it. I have my headphones plugged in and minimied iPlayer so should be set.

Lol @ your DD Raahh

DS' tennis watching is coming along (he is 2.5) , he now stands in front of the tv shouting "go on Andy/Laura, do it" and when he misses a shot "oh no, missed the ball, get it get it."

I might finally have someone to come and queue at Wimbo with me in a few years

siezethenight Mon 01-Jul-13 12:51:46

Phwoorrr.... I am starting to see the attraction Raahh
