Once again I was spoilt for choice with my sport watching.
Last night I had a split screen with rugby and cricket then followed by cycling and cricket. My sister reminded me that there was also golf from St Andrews, but I am not a follower of golf. I did see pictures of a great deal of water on the course so St Andrews is living up to its reputation as a place of inclement weather!
The rugby was won by the Wallabies but South Africa deserved to win and were only beaten in the final minutes. Australia were obviously trying out some new combinations in the team and hopefully there will be a more cohesive team by the time the World Cup comes around in September.
The cycling was not so exciting last night and the cricket had some rather controversial umpiring decisions. Apart from that it was an enjoyable night’s viewing.
Tonight should be relatively calm with only cycling and cricket that I want to watch.
Needless to say that I haven’t done much reading over the past few days.

Perhaps just as well you weren’t watching the golf, there wasn’t much going on due to weather problems. After all the rain came ferocious winds. Balls kept being blown away, rolling across the greens before the players could hit their shots, so play had to be stopped.
We used to go to St Andrews for swimming when we were kids. My dad used to say that it would be “clampers” when we got there. Invariably it was.
Clampers? I don’t think I’ve heard that expression. Meaning cold? I think of St Andrew’s as a cold place, it gets such icy winds off the sea. You were brave to go swimming there.
Low cloud and raining I think. It was an expression my father used and he was from the highlands.
Ah, I see, thank you. I can just imagine the conditions, a bit misty and murky. Good word.
