I’ve got Poland in our work sweepstake, Richard has Costa Rica in his. This means that the match on 20th June at 3pm will be interesting in our household.

The Sand Sculpture Festival
The Sand Sculpture Festival last year must have been a success, as work is underway on another one. This years theme is the Roman Empire and it opens on the 1st June, lasting until the 10th September.
We had few beers
We had a few beers at the Windmill with friends on Friday evening. Whilst there Kirsty and I both had massages from Urban Chill. I’d never heard of these people, or seen them before, but looking on their website it seems that they visit quite a few bars (mostly in London). There is no fixed price for a massage, you just pay what you think it was worth. A nice service, and a great treat for a Friday evening.
You can’t expect to win against rock orcs, but I’d thought the German entry would do better than it did at Eurovision. There’s something exceptional about a German country music act. They got my vote.
Glad to read on
Glad to read on BBC News that Peter Taylor isn’t going to join Charlton. Hurrah!
mainly read Private Eye
I mainly read Private Eye for the cartoons, but the classified ads are a hotbed of creativity:
Whilst staying with my parents over the weekend we visited Filey, a place I hadn’t been to for many years. It was a pretty cold, blustery day but we managed a walk along the sea front and spotted this water feature based on a maritime compass which is part of Filey’s art and craft scene and which I primarily noticed because of Richard’s obsession with the shipping forecast.
No cream teas to review, but I can say that the Rainbow cafe does good bacon sandwiches.
After catching the second
After catching the second half of last year’s The Apprentice, we started watching this series from the beginning and have enjoyed watching the comings and goings. I’m pretty impressed that an ex-pupil of the senior school I went to, Michelle, went on to win it and is now Alan Sugar‘s Apprentice. An excellent programme.
If you re following
If you’re following The Happiness Formula on BBC 2 (Wednesdays, 7pm) you might be interested in the above book. The book covers what I’ve seen so far in the TV show, only in more detail.
Oh, the book write ups I do from time to time, are now available as an RSS feed.
