Super, Satisfying Saturday

When I got Saturday mornings back a couple of weeks ago, I decided not to waste them.  After all, one of the reasons that influenced my decision was the fact that if I used the time productively on my writing, that I could write another book in a short space of time.  So, I got up early this morning and spent two hours working on my next novel, which has the working title, The Banjo.  Then I went and got the paper, prepared my vegetable smoothie and took my place in the armchair, from which I have had to be almost surgically removed!

What a fabulous day’s tennis!  Murray and Rafa are both through to the round of 16 🙂  The best match of the day for me, though, was the last one – Serena Williams v Victoria Azarenka.  Azarenka raced ahead to 6-3 and 4-2.  It looked as though she would walk it but then Williams went up a gear and stormed ahead to take the second set.  Azarenka got a bit petulant – always a bad thing as she ended up playing herself as well as Serena.  But, she led 2-0 in the final set and seemed confident when Serena juggernauted her way through to win the match!  At 33 – old for a tennis player – she is still World No 1 and to be honest, I can’t see anyone beating her.  Roland Garros is a very colourful affair this year; the colours of the moment seem to be lavender and peach or pink for both men and women.  A couple of players, like Monfils, are wearing a lurid fluorescent green outfit; Rafa is wearing a fabulous two-tone blue strip and Murray is in grey and black!

I also found time to rustle up a lovely roast dinner, which I’ve polished off with relish and…………… ticket to Antigua is booked!  Hooray!  Hooray!  Something nice to look forward to in a few weeks’ time.  🙂

And the best news ever yesterday – my dear, dear friend J has been given the all-clear and the hospital don’t want to see her for 6 months.  That just made my day.

So – a little bit of Casualty now, and then tomorrow will be more writing and tennis.  Life’s good!
