Now I don't normally watch the tennis, I am one those those annoying people who tends to dip in and out of the Wimbledon coverage when I feel like it or when it gets exciting. I'm not the dedicated fan which my mum is, she will watch it religiously for the whole two weeks. In fact my mum is sport mad, she knows all about the football and likes a game of cricket too. She doesn't play so much now (ha ha), but hey I'm beginning to think she would make a good manager for a football team if anyone is looking for one.
I did find myself watching a tennis match in the week and it was good to be fair. I was enjoying it immensely but not because of the game, I was mesmerised by the umpire. Yep you caught him too didn't you? Kader Nouni the French Barry White. I giggled like a immature teenage girl every time he announced the score. He took over social media as the man of the moment, someone even tweeted that 'he was making their ovaries twitch' and every radio playlist was suddenly inundated with Barry White classics. A real delight, very amusing and the talk of Wimbledon 2017.
Talking of tennis if you missed Sue Barker: Our Wimbledon you missed a treat. Go to BBC iplayer and catch up as it's worth a watch. If there is anyone who could produce a programme on the history of Wimbledon and conduct great interviews with past sporting stars it is Sue. She is the Queen of tennis and the tennis world have such a respect for her. It's been her dream to be able to interview not only her past competitors but players who influenced her and inspirational players at present such as Andy Murray. It was great to see past Wimbledon winners then and now and how their careers have panned out. Great show!
There's a new series of Hotel Inspector which I love. I now become Alex Polizzi when I enter a hotel room, it's just there in your head isn't it? She naturally installs this want to check that there is a mattress protector on the bed and pillow protectors. I do a sweep of the room including it's facilities and review it in my head, thinking 'what would Alex say about this?' I do love her though, she would make me so nervous having her to stay and I don't even own a hotel. I wonder if she started showing signs of her future career when having sleepovers as a child. Checking out the sleeping arrangements and quality of midnight feasts. I adore the impact she has on the people she visits, she certainly knows her stuff and some people like to defy her and then you get people who submit to all her advances. I would definitely take any advice from her regarding business or otherwise, I'd wait for her to give me a look of disbelief at whatever I was planning and then just give in totally. Hotel Inspector is on Tuesday 9pm Channel 5.
We said goodbye to the very successful drama Broken and what a brilliant ending. Well written and great acting by all the cast. Father Michael found his peace at last and hopefully will carry on to be a 'wonderful priest'. It has included heartbreak, sadness, turmoil but also managed to include some small light entertaining moments too. A lot of dilemmas which you question yourself as to what you would do in those peoples shoes and a sense of what would the consequences be of not answering that phone call or whether or not to act on someone else's issues especially when it comes to their mental health. Life leads us down so many different paths, we are forever learning and sometimes with devastating results but at the same time we have moments when things do work out and there is a greatness and positivity in our lives. It can just take time to find it.
So into another week we go, have great one, remember to comment on anything you are watching at the moment. I will be back for Music Monday tomorrow but in the mean time take care and thanks for reading.
