Cardiff and other odds and ends

By redpanda On June 28th, 2009

Well mostly Cardiff if the truth be known cos very little else has happened…………..

Had a really nice day out, was a good meeting but the sound system was crap and the pre meeting entertainment could have been better. The racing its self was good………..not a great deal of over taking but what there was turned out exciting. I think that all 4 of the finalists deserved to be there and that Jason Crump was a worthy winner. However I have just read that the result will not be made official until an inquiry into the behaviour of Sayfutdinov and Nicholls has been resolved. Not that it will make a lot of difference to the final result as nether made the top 8. Saying that I have never liked Nicholls anyway, too much of what my Dad would call a ‘big I am’ or in other words likes things his way or no way.

Disappointed that Chris Harris got excluded but these things happen. Did not buy food, drink or souvenirs up there at all because of the costs but at £8.00 the programme was worth the money for the information and photo’s alone. We also had a very good view from where we were which was high up on the back straight, opposite the start line. It was so flipping hot it was harder to know which was worse, being inside the stadium or outside and they only opened the roof for a short time. We left home at 7.30 and got there at 10 but by the time we found somewhere to park it was 10.30 so we had 4 and a half hours to kill. The stadium was about a 10 minute walk from the car park and was dead opposite the Cardiff Central train station.

The only other thing that has really happened was I saw my friend Carole’s sister and neice and some of her kids today for the first time in a very long time. We popped over because Tim had to sort out a PC problem for her and Her sister was staying with her and as Mel only lives down the road she popped up as well. I have not seen Mel since Nan died and that was when Kristie was 18 months. Her second Matthew is the same age as Kristie and is also very musical. As for little Emily she is just so sweet. Its nice to catch up with people now and again. I am going to set up a facebook account to keep in touch with everyone. But with private settings only.

Oh and I have hurt my hip. Doing of all things getting out of the car when we got back from Carole’s and I am now in agony. Pain killers are not helping at all.
