Friday!

What a busy week it has been, and I also get to work tomorrow!

I don't usually work at weekends, but tomorrow is a University Open Day and I have been drafted in to do a talk about GIS (computer mapping). I think I have put together a good presentation, including a little project I did to find the flattest cycle route from home to work. Should be fun, I quite enjoy this sort of thing once I get going - the first sentence is the hardest...

My eldest son has his last exam for the year on Monday, and his Prom on Friday! Aw, my little boy is growing up so fast!

My youngest son continues to play in his school cricket team. Yesterday they went to a tournament with 16 teams in it, and came second! They lost out to a team where most of the players also play in town and district teams so it is not really surprising. Got to be happy with coming second to them!

Got another 6 tanks painted last night - Shermans this time - they look great, but I forgot to take a photo :-(

The weather here continues to be fantastic, and looks like staying that way too! I love cycling in the heat, wearing just shorts and t-shirt, oh yeah. Must also try to get some tennis in soon too. We have great fun just whacking the ball around, not really paying any attention to the lines - if you can get to it while it is still bouncing it is still "In".

See you later - I hope to find time for a little vblog later today...

Those kinds of presentations can be fun/entertaining. As for opening lines, I always try to try to get my audience laughing with humor. (In the beginning, the world was flat, then man figured out how to add hills and valleys...).

With school & sports, kids seem to grow up fast. Hope the youngest is enjoying playing cricket. We have a lot of soccer/baseball/baseketball leagues down here, but I don't think there's any cricket teams. 2nd place is a good showing.

And I spoke too soon earlier about the Shermans. Can't wait to see how you stage them. Good luck with the presentation!

agg79 - Yes, I like to have a bit of humour too - probably starting with the appropriateness of my surname - Hills!

My son is loving the cricket - he wouldn't play if not.

Wreggie - Spoken from the heart!

It is summer there? How hot can it get?
It rains everyday here, wet season's here. But the heat is constant, around 30 degrees Celcius in the afternoon.

Now I wonder how small the soldiers can be if paired with those tanks...

The heat is blistering here. While my son and I were hunting down a lacrosse, but stumbled on cricket. I tried explaining it to him, but i really don't think I did a good job of explaining the game to him...maybe it is because I don't get it myself.

Excellent job for your son!!!!

Of course you enjoy speaking in front of a group! I'll bet you're great at it!

Good for your son's team! 2nd Place! That's excellent!

So it's YOU who has stolen all the GOOD weather. I think we got yours by mistake. We've had so much rain, and a few major storms as well!
