Well, I am sat at my desk at work trying very hard to focus and rehydrate.

Thanks go to Matt for running in and shouting at me this morning as I must have slept straight through my alarms.

Just checked the mirror and blanched at my interesting appearance. Last night’s makeup is refusing to shift, my eyeshadow has actually stained my eyelids a vivid shade of fuschia.

Spoke to dad on the way to the gig last night. Seems congratulations are in order for both he and Sy.

Daddy is off to Washington sometime to receive some work related prize for being superb (we always knew this anyhow), and on Saturday Sy came 2nd in class for storming up a hill at full pelt in the midget. Wahey! (also, the guy who came first wouldn’t normally have been in that class but apparently they grouped 2 classes together, so Sy rules really *nods*)

Go Downes’!

    Congrats!

    Congratulations to Kay’s daddy! And to Simon.
    Your family are all far too clever Miss Downes, are you sure that you are not all part of some special experiment to grow clever people that will one day take over the world and paint it pink, and build statues of Tigger?
    Whichever experiment my family was involved in I think we can assume went wrong. Oh so horribly wrong.
    Take care my little popsicle, don’t work too hard.

    HAH! At first I thought that said “storm up a hill WITH a midget”. I was ready to grab a camera, get on a plane and come see the latest UK sports craze: UpHill Midget Hauling! then I reread and am now all dissapointed like. Congrats to Sy, sounds very cool whatever it is.

    I’m assuming it’s a car or a motorcycle.?.?.?

    My Dad and Sy do hillclimb in a little MG midget.

    Hmm, tried to find you a picture but I’m afraid the only one I could find was this one taken two years ago when Sy crashed the car quite spectacularly:

    Hooray for rollbars!

    Holy CRAP!

    Now I REALLY want to visit Devon! Is this like those races where they go sliding off track and take out spectators? SWEET!
