Hi-Ho. Hi-Ho!/ Thoughts on a cracking Wimbledon


This week I returned to the workforce. Ironically with the same company that put boot to ass, just a short while ago. I have been welcomed back into the fold to work with my then manager, but in a new area, EC1; Barbican, Smithsfield, Clerkenwell. (I have grown to like the area already in my few days there).
I also have had to take up a new discipline; lettings! Probably the more lucrative field to be in during this credit crunch but still a field I have to learn. The motivations behind buying a property and just renting one for a year are poles apart, and I'll have to read them very quickly for I only have a 3 month, summer contract!
A job's a job though and hopefully I can exceed targets once more and show my worth.....


I know the Wimbledon tournament finished last weekend with a fantastic lady's and men's final (more on them later), but this was, for me, one of the best and more enjoyable tournaments ever. I made my 2 trips down to see live tennis, but being out of a job afforded me the added ability to watch many more matches on the gogglebox, and there were some humdingers!
And on the finals, I'm glad that after the match fixing slur that was leveled at the Williams sisters, they both came out swinging and proved that the match was won on the day, by the best player, and not over the breakfast table, like had been suggested from some quarters.
And on the men's final, I was saddened that Federer lost, for it meant there was a changing of the guard, a new world order. Nadal has been the only man in the last few years that could regularly worry Federer, but not on grass. Now, there is no surface that Federer truly rules. Nadal has been World Number 2 to Federer's Number 1 for the last 3 years, but with his winning head to head record against him the positions must now to be reversed.
In my book you cant beat the world's best player more times than he's beaten you and still be number 2!

This will ρrevent the dough from getting stuck tightly to the surface of the pizza pan.
Theгe arе рlеnty of еlесtric ovens that will still knock your sοcks
off. It should be ѕpread onto the рizza stone or pan in a laуer less than an inch thicκ, and then the squaѕh crust will
neеd to be baκed for at lеаst 20 minutes before putting tοppingѕ on it
anԁ baking again.

Now, for your first Fashion photography models, get anyone you can from family,
friends and neighbors. The drama in a modest black wool dress was high on drama thanks to ruffles at the collar and elbows, while a black
velvet cape featuring epaulettes. Designers and retailers often assume the position
of leader for the community, and the vibe that
is New York is the idea that expensive clothes are more desirable.
