It’s tennis season - a cocktail of British under achievement and poor weather. It also means...

  1. It’s the only time of the year you don’t feel guilty about watching telly during the day.
  2. Er...
  3. That’s it.

But no daytime TV for me because tomorrow, drum roll please, Helen’s invited me to her fancy pants tennis club. You can tell it’s posh because it calls itself a ‘lawn racquet ground’. Whooooo!
