Sorry it’s a bit late folks. The main reason being is it’s my mum and dad’s 30th wedding anniversary, and the’ve buggered off to London for a few days. So me and my brother, Stew, are fairly busy on the trucks and I’ve got a fair bit on, on the barrow job front. Oh well, it keeps me out of mischief. And I’ve just got another job that’ll start in a few weeks when harvesting starts, a bit of tractor driving or whatever they can find for me to do on the farm. I can’t think of owt better than a bit of tractor driving. Get a bit of Zane Lowe on the radio, holding a bit of trafffic up, mint.

I’ve got a fair bit to get through before I go to Silvestone this weekend. I’m meant to be doing a Question of Sport with Jenson Button, (now that’s and F1 driver’s name if ever I heard one). It’s all something to do with Honda, and me and my girlfriend Kate are camping in some fancy campsite. I’ll let you know how that goes. Then I’m straight from there to the Southern 100 in the Isle of Man for five days. Then straight to the Goodwood Festival of Speed for the weekend after that…

Oh, I was meant to be writing about Mallory. Well, there is not much to say, but the lads have got the bike running, she never missed a beat all weekend. But the rider rode like a tit. I’ve never been a Mallory fan and still aren’t. It’s probably my least favorite track and I just needed to pull my finger out, a 16th and 17th are just not good enough. I know I’m good for the top ten. At least it’s out of the way and I’ve got the Southern to look forward to and then to Oulton for the next BSB. I promise I’ll stick me balls on the line a bit more, honestly.

By the way, the music I’m getting James to listen to (see previous post) is Mark Bolan, kindly donated by Chris our transport manager at work.
