Even bloggers need a break

But I never meant it to be nearly three weeks between entries. So - apologies all round, and I hope I still have some readers left.

With very few competitions still going on and not many of our athletes in action, there has been little to report. Our life here has largely been about gardening - interesting, but not to the purpose.

I must just mention Annie Lewis's contribution to Team Avon winning the under-20 women's 4x400m relay at the Inter-Counties match in Bedford. Well done to her.

A couple of pieces of news as well.

The club Awards Evening will be on 28th November at Kingswood village hall. That's not the Kingswood where you take your planning applications and struggle to get round the one way system to the shopping centre. This is the Kingswood halfway between Wickwar and Wotton-under-Edge.

And the long-promised repairs to the track start on 22nd September, so the track will be out of action for at least 12 working days. Probably nearer three weeks. Coaches will be making their own arrangements, so talk to them. Some are going to take a break; others will find other places to train. I think Martin Fitzhugh is taking his lot to Peg Hill.

Lesley and I went to London for a couple of days. Firstly to see the son's new flat, but also to see the daughter and look around a bit. The most impressive item on the itinerary (apart from the flat, I suppose I'd better say) was the installation of poppies at the Tower of London. Eventually, there will be one for every British casualty in the First World War. It's not complete yet but still mighty impressive. You need to click on the picture to see it properly.

Incidentally, should you ever find yourself in Whitton High Street, desperate for a cup of tea - avoid the Cafe Parisienne.

As a student I worked in a hotel in Devon. We waiters worked in pairs, sharing a work station, and my partner was an Italian called Giorgio....
