You may have probably noticed a lack of things being written on here recently. At the moment, I’m just about finding time to eat and sleep. This Sunday’s the first day for ages I’ve been able to sit down with a cup of tea, something I didn’t even manage yesterday. That’s how busy I’ve been. Normal service should be back soon.
In the meantime, one good things one bad.
It was quite a shock to hear the journalist Miles Kington died earlier this week. I’m not a regular Independent reader but by far and away he was often the best writer in it. He had a wonderful ability to manipulate the simplest of the English language into laugh-out-loud writing. Certainly one of my favourite writers over the past few years and a big loss.
On the more positive side, I’m still reeling in shock from Wales’ wonderful second half comeback in the Six Nations yesterday. Going from a first half where we did our damnedest to give England the ball at every opportunity, to a storming comeback, that was both the best and worst of Wales and, if Warren Gatland is allowed a few years in change, bodes well for the future.
It also throw an already unpredictable tournament open even further. Ireland weren’t convincing against Italy, while Wales have shown that, if on song, they could cause anybody problems. On the showing of the French performance so far, they’re going to be the ones to beat though. Should make for some very entertaining rugby over the coming weeks.
