Yesterday was pretty exciting.
Firstly, the decision whether to watch the F1 or the tennis - thankfully, the German Grand Prix was well underway and finished before the end of the first set of tennis. We did have the tennis on the laptop screen as well so we wouldn't miss any.
But back to the F1. Poor Mark Webber with his wheel coming off right at the beginning. I felt so bad for him. Hubby said he'd have given up at that point, but then I reminded him that it only takes the safety car having to come out for him to catch right back up again and be in with a chance of points. A good job he didn't give up too, as that's exactly what happened. I couldn't believe what I was seeing when the burnt out race car of Jules Bianchi started rolling slowly backwards down the track and onto the grass at the other side. Very lucky there were no race cars flying past at that exact moment. So a very close fight to the end of the race for the top 10 cars for positions, which made it pretty exciting indeed!
Then the Tennis, and it was so so good. I found myself shouting at the screen quite a lot which is unusual for me, but so pleased that Andy Murray won. Each year it seemed like he was getting closer and closer to the title and it was so good to see him finally do it, especially given all the hard work that he has obviously been doing and the maturity he is showing in his games now. I think everyone here had a good feeling that he was going to win yesterday.
It's been a lot of fun, I could get into watching more sport - it's a shame there are no Olympics to watch this year - I'm quite in the mood for watching a bit of swimming or hockey.
I rounded the day off with a lovely refreshing gin and soda and a nice Bond film and then a sit in the sunshine on the balcony, so it was a pretty wonderful day.
Who else caught some of the sport yesterday?
