I have got to start this newsletter by congratulating Team GB and their performance to date.
What a marvellous job they are doing for us. Each day, during these Olympics, I have watched every member of the team giving their all. Many have won medals, fantastic - some have not been so lucky, their time has not come yet - but all have done us proud. Well done!
Hopefully, this will not be too long a newsletter - I don't want to drag you away from the excitement of the Olympics for too long.
So much is happening here. On a personal level - we have sold the house, so I am busy getting all of that organised. How much fun is it trying to get a new telephone line installed whilst making sure that the old line does not get disconnected too early?

If you come near the shop at the moment you will hear all about it.
Hopefully, it will not take too long and we will be moved into our little dolls house and I will be able to settle back down.
I hope you are all having a good summer break, if only the weather would sort itself out - is it going to be hot? is it going to rain? ho, hum! Tonight it is feeling so chilly, it is hard to believe that we were so hot only 10 days ago. Still, hopefully I have got something that will cheer you up.
