Thought we'd have a new thread for today.

It is raining cats and dogs (technical term) here in theNorth West- I am not very hopeful of a full days play at Wimbledon. but fingers crossed. The weather bloke last night today would be 'Frustrating Friday'in terms of play. Fond of alliteration, those Wimbledon types.


As I thought,Robson has had an up-grade from court 2 to centre, which should give her a boost.

Looking forward to see if Dimitrov pulls through- and
first upon number 1 court.

Kanepi is quite good but Laura has some steel too (fingers crossed)

Yeah yeah bluster I reckon. She's hardly going to admit a home crowd against her in full voice gives her the squits with fear.

COME ON LAURA (sorry excited)

Oh witt A woman after my own heart! I got my son 2 gaming consoles on Boxing Day as he's bonkers for them, the older ones that you can't purchase anymore! I found them on Ebay and snapped them up for this Christmas while they were still eating Turkey from the one we were at!

I got my elder dd a facial steamer on wheels and a new double waxing pot and also I ordered her a Bio Sculpture Course (shocking, almost fainted at cost) which is in November actually so she gets it early - she couldn't afford it herself as she is a newly qualified beautician and nail technician and starting out plus baby is coming in August. She has to go to Somerset for it, given we are in Wales it means a hotel for her also and a night away from baby - but - once she is qualified in this? She's set up completely for a business. She wants to work for me, once I am qualified in sports massage... So if she takes a year off now and just does this Bio course and bits and family and friends, takes care of new baby, by the time I am qualified? We will be set to go.... So, that's what I got yesterday. The rest of this month? Eating beans on toast!

ami if I do not start early with this xmas stuff I end up in panic come October/November and I hate financial panic. I am in college plus working part time, self employed, money is tight, 2 of my dc's have no income as full time students. Not even child benefit for one of them anymore... And it will be worse come the latter end of this year as I work less and college more... I knew I had to be almost done by September if not totally done - I am on schedule! I have gone without everything imaginable to get it all done before our very own financial dire straights hits us come September... I will get qualified though, I will do it. Determined smile no matter how much I have to go without.

Would love some but back on diet, at least during the week. Plus I'm at work!

Good morning, ladies! Seems like today will be a day of seating around watching tennis smile
I got up early, did a bit of cleaning and tidying up, put a washing machine on and I'm gonna start ironing in the hope I'm ready within an hr, before Ferrer stars playing smilesmile

Going to be a bit cooler on the courts this week.
Might catch the odd bit of rain tomorrow evening and again on thursday afternoon, but overall looking pretty reasonable.

Oh no, Del Potro might be injured too sad

Raahh Mon 01-Jul-13 11:54:34

sad really need Del Potato to be ok.

And 6 ft 8! Jerzy Janowiz is 2 ft taller than me!shock

am angry Ferrer has been stuck oncourt 2- he's not been on centre yet, iirc he's the 4th seed, ffs!

Witt Mon 01-Jul-13 12:07:42

But at least this means we can watch the match before they go Robson/Murray mad on BBC

Hi all!
I am back at work now after having a month off ill sad 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.
