This Sporting Life

1 Comment


(Sorry Oscar – still no cap, no tie!). Martin departs his final lunch yesterday, in a weekend that predominantly featured eating (we didn’t actually play tennis)

Meanwhile Pete, don’t worry overmuch about the wild west because it wasn’t on Portsea Island and apparently the culprits are from Fareham. They don’t behave over that way you know (there’s song about it)

As for Mr Mook, if he got back from his various ‘trips’ to Sussex and caught that Mr Strange Norrell thing on the telly he will have heard the following alarming exchange:

“How are you finding Portsmouth sir?”

“I dislike Portsmouth intensely.”

I’m organising a boycott of further episodes

  1. Norrell/Strange: what surprised me was the beach, presumably Southsea, was all sand.
