We’ve had an exceptional summer of sport so far this year. The England team last week came 3rd in the Women’s World Cup – the best either the men or the women have done since 1966! We stayed up ’til way past midnight to watch the matches, but the quality and excitement made it worthwhile.
We’re a week into Wimbledon Fortnight and local girl Heather Watson gave Serena Williams a scare… and, for a while, the British public a glimmer of hope.
We’re currently engrossed in the Tour de France – an annual favourite of ours – last year’s Yorkshire Grand Départ a memory we savour.
Next week sees the start of The Open Golf at historic St Andrews in Scotland. I’ll be a golf widow for a week, but I might join Justin in watching the final few holes.
