Life after the Le Mans 24 hours

With the end of the Le Mans and Roberts finally finishing his A levels we are in the lumber of post real racing and another body around the house with very little direction. That was an amazing race, Audi 1 and 2 but the Toyotas did well. I really enjoyed the other classes of racing. The sleep deprivation and adrenanlil pumping through the drivers to keep going for 24 hours makes for good viewing. As for Robert and his long holiday ahead, well we can only see where that leads, maybe a drivers licence and student card then the cherry on the top, results to go to Uni?
Susan is at Yoga and Sam is asleep, I take the oppurunity to catchup on the last few weeks. Mark's and Granny Junes birthday tomorrow, always been one to remember and I hope we will never forget Granny June but we are here celebrate the living and I hope Mark you have a wonderful day. I know work will get in the way but I am sure between your Mum and Travis you will be spoilt. I think I can take the liberty of wishing you a happy birthday from all of us and I will try and get hold of you.
Michael is getting over his stomach bug and has flown to Ho Chi Ming and then on to a very exotic looking island for a few day surfing. From his photo he sent it is easy to see why this island hold so much attraction. Hard life these students live but they do make their own adventures, that is what we would expect from young men at the top of their profession. It is hard to believe that he has been there for 4 weeks already and has his last week to surf and chill.

News updates

Hawthorn, why Hawthorn? Actually I do not know. Must have some relevance or I would not have written it done. Move on, it will come to me later or never.
I must admit to be a little lazy today as we only got out of bed at 9 this morning to go for our Saturday run. A pleasant and warm day greeted us and the added bonus was the absence of wind. Susan forgot to take her asthma inhaler so battled a little as her lungs were reluctant to accept the increase in her air intake. I ran like to wind but then I usually do. 
Normal weekend ahead of us, Susan a little perturbed as she feels she must go and see her mother. Yes the renowned Mags. I really feel for Susan as it is not easy to have a pleasant visit at the best of times. Talking of Mags, I am sure the military could use her, Mags ( Military Atomic Granny Syndrome ) give her 5 minutes in Afghanistan and the Taliban will be running for the hills. Anyway we must remember that old age will come to all of us, just with varying degrees of dementia.
Robert is doing his application for student finance with Susan ever watchful, peering over his shoulder. Hopefully will not take too long as I would really like to go out to a coffee shop and have a wee scone and cream or a panini.
Lily Florence is 5 today and we wish her a really exciting birthday, full of presents and good cheer. Some photos on iPhoto stream for those interested,I especially liked the rainbow outfit, very cute. Michael is having a great time in Vietnam and staying in some really nice hotels for as little as £ 6 per night, see photo attached.
Well thats all for now.
