Another week, another blog!
Katie's Dad has been gathering his thoughts over the last seven days and has decided to share them with you.
You lucky people!
The period of time after the anniversary of Katie's birthday and her passing is a difficult time with more reflection than normal but thinking of Katie as I do is usually a positive emotion and that is entirely thanks to her and her amazing personality.
It was lovely to see good old Peter Crouch score twice at Wembley for England to continue his amazing scoring record for his country. Katie loved "Crouchy" and loved wearing her England shirt with Crouch and the number 21 on the back.
It always makes me smile when he does well for England. For the obvious reason and also it reminds me of Katie enjoying watching him play.
A strange phenomenon this week in the sky. If you looked skywards not only would the sky be an odd blue colour but up there too was a big orange thing - the sun apparently. Roll on summer!
Twice this week I have been compared to a contributor to BBC's "Grumpy Old Men" which I take as a huge compliment and am not offended in the slightest. It is not my fault if everything everybody does is not done correctly.
Katie's Mum bought me a book containing unpublished letters from the Daily Telegraph - almost every one I think I could have written myself. Sorry Katie, I am getting old before my time!
The winners of our 10.000th visitor competition have been contacted so if you have not heard anything then I am sorry but better luck next time. You will have to try and win our 20,000th visitor competition.
We are delighted to announce we have signed up to Weave-a-Web, our site designer, for another year so look out for new art work etc over the coming 12 months. Actually anything to do with colour schemes will not be me, I just do the words.
Before I go there is time, there is always time, for this week's gag.
A man stood over his tee shot for what seemed an eternity, looking up, looking down, measuring the distance, figuring the wind direction and speed. Finally his exasperated partner says, "What the is taking so long? Hit the ball!" The man answers, "My wife is up there watching me from the clubhouse. I want to make this a perfect shot." "Give me a break! You don't stand a chance of hitting her from here."
