       Dear friends
       Well,  the  very  changeable  weather  seems  to  have  announced  that  summer  is
       most definitely here!  We began the week driving through the floods to Poole and
       ended it baking at the cricket!  Hampshire have had some very pleasing results
       recently  and we  wait to  see if they  fulfil  their  potential  this  year and  get  to  the
       T20Blast quarter finals, it all depends on later results of other teams.  There is a new
       cricket competition starting at the end of July called The Hundred, we are going
       to see Southern Brave verses Northern Superchargers in August, both the women’s
       and men’s teams, it will be interesting to see how different it is and whether the
       rules  are  any  easier  to  understand  –  I  think  the  main  thing  is  it  will  be  quicker.
       Anyway, I’ll let you know in September, if I remember.  The sport is great at the
       moment,  we  even  watched  a  couple  of  football  games  on  the  TV  recently,
       unheard of in our house usually.
       Sorry if sport is not your thing but there’s lots coming up – The Lions in South Africa,
       the golf and cycling have just finished and then there is the ‘cherry on top’ to look
       forward to The Olympics.  Graham and I were lucky enough to get tickets for the
       2012 Games, they  were in less  popular  sports  such  as water  polo and  handball
       but thrilling all the same.  We were in Hyde Park for the Triathlon and just about
       saw  tops  of  athlete’s  heads  go  by,  I  think  Tokyo  will  be  very  different  with  no
