Sunday of Sport!

This was Saturday actually but it was a good match.  Garbine Muguruza lifting the Venus Rosewater Dish as winner of the 2017 Ladies Wimbledon Championships.

This was yesterday and again a good match although it was over rather quickly with Roger winning in straight sets.  The men’s trophy does not have a name but is called The Challenge Cup.  Also a lot of people ask why there is a pineapple on the top and the Wimbledon Museum believe it is because the pineapple was seen as a symbol of “honour, welcoming and celebration”! 

Neither player gets to keep the trophies as they belong to the All England Club, however they do get a smaller replica to keep.

Finally for Sport Sunday it was the British Grand Prix at Silverstone, which was won by Lewis Hamilton in fine style with his team mate Valtteri Bottas coming second. Oh it was such a shame that Vettel got a puncture on the last lap and had to pit and then finished seventh!!!!!  You really cannot convey sarcasm over the Internet!  Happy dance to the racing Gods who put Vettel in his place!!!!!!!

I didn’t post on Thursday and Friday of last week as I was busy looking after Miss Treacle who had her bandages taken off as the Vet wanted her leg to get some air for it to heal, which meant the dreaded hood went on and she is not allowed outside on her own but on her lead which she really does not understand or appreciate!  So DH, Youngest and I have been on dog watch in the garden and trying to get her to go has neen a nightmare.  In fact I think our neighbours must think we are mad trying to encourage her to get on with things!!!!  She is back at the vets in the morning to see how things are going and if okay to have the stitches out!!!! Hopefully it will not be too long before the hood can come off and get back to normal!!!

Well it will be on Thursday when he finishes his first year of college!!!!  Can’t wait.  It really doesn’t feel like summer until they are off.  He has seven weeks this year and there are quite a few things to do whilst he is off, including painting his room.  I said it would be painted white again and then add colour in with things but he has decided he wants grey(!) but I said he can have the two smallest walls grey (we are talking light grey here not battleship grey!) and the biggest walls will be white!!!  Well thats my plan!!!  I will show you how it progresses!!!

Friday night we are having a family dinnet to celebrate the summer break and yes I am keeping my fingers crossed we can eat outside again.  Today is very warm but you guessed it rain is on the way again!!! 

I hope you all had a lovely summer weekend.

Hugs, Susie x

    Congratulations to Mr. Roger and we will not mention the Grand Prix. Yay for summer break! Mom has seen walls painted a pewter grey before and they are beautiful! We can’t wait to see progress, Miss Susie! We continue to send you lots of healing vibes, Treacle!

    I was so glad to see someone new win the women’s side of Wimbledon! Roger did a fine job, but he seems to always win – which, for him, is the point! I don’t keep up with the Grand Prix racing so your sarcasm just flew right by me 😀 I hope Treacle gets rid of the “cone of shame” soon – always a pain for the humans and the animals!! Just a couple more days and then it is officially summer for you!!
