Sport and travel seem to be the subjects this week on the blogs if my colleagues are anything to go by. Football, yes I’m a fan of sorts when there is a tournament to follow but I wouldn’t take a day off to watch a game and tennis is something I played at school.

I"m just back from the delightful Le Marche area of Italy where my daughter has a holiday house.
