Great stuff Lizzi - although it even took me a while to spot Dave & I in your photo, despite knowing where we were sitting and what we were wearing, so I'll be quite impressed if anyone else can find us!

Well it wouldn't be a challenge otherwise....and also I only had the baby camera and that was using maximum zoom ;)

Oh thank god you 've put them up here - I thought that by following you as a blogger it would alert me to all your blogs but irritatingly it doesn't!

Yeah it's annoying. Having said that I have several blogs going so it makes it more awkward :)

I always wondered why you have separate posts as separate blogs... does your template not let you do multiple?
It's the templates that always discombobulate me - it took me ages to find one that didn't look totally naff for the new 5-ring circus one.

Just personal preference. Some of the blogs I break into chunks cos I don't have time to write them all at once. Others I break up so they aren't long and rambling.....!

I sometimes think I waffle on too much in my blogs :)

Oh no I do't think you do at all - I think you're blogs are really very well written. You break it up well with photos... and you bring a lot into them.

I know...and by the sounds of things the transport system didn't cope well either....so we made the correct decision to leave before the end!

But what do you think, as a writer, of our blogs.....?.You haven't said.

I hope this isn't to me? It really is not my place to "judge" how people write... especially as I am not formally "qualified" as I still have shorthand pending.
And even if I was qualified... I still wouldn't judge.
People write on here to share their experiences of Andy, Tennis and/or sport in general. It is what it is.

It was to you...wasn't asking for a "critical judgement". Added "as a writer" as a little compliment. Just wondering if you'd enjoyed what we had written.

When I have time to read them, mostly yes. But my time has been stolen in the past months so haven't seen as much as in normal years.
I click on thanks for some, comment on others.. depends on what I have the time to do.

It isn't a compliment. It just reminds me that I haven't passed my diploma. Until I do - I don't consider myself a writer. I consider myself a failure after 10 months of sacrifice and hard graft.
Not what I need to be honest.

Well blogged (as always) ... I agree - visually impaired long jump was just amazing. I had nothing but admiration throughout that event - I didn't get to go at all to the Paralympics but watched as much as I could in between a schedule and a ha,f at work.

Amazing events. We did ourselves proud.
