Hey everyone! Please don’t get your hopes up, it isn’t Sunday just yet, I’m just here filling in for Pat. It is, unfortunately that day of the week again, Thursday. Don’t panic, things will be okay, it’ll be a good Thursday today I’m sure. If it isn’t well... at least we have lots of things to look forward to in the coming days such as the Brazilian GP! Always a favourite race, with some great racing, how brilliant is it to hear it’ll be the 2011 season finale, returning it to its rightful place. I can’t believe it’s over a year ago since Jenson won the Championship!
Hey all, I hope you’re all well this fine day. Today is Halloween , so I hope you all have an enjoyable day carving jack-o'-lanterns or whatever you’re meant to do on Halloween. Personally I’ll be working but I’m sure you’ll all be doing much more exciting things than that!
Hey everyone! I hope you're all well, I'm back from a rather unanticipated 2 week break, and on that note a quick thanks to Steven and Lukeh for filling in for me last minute. Today, as with most good Sundays, is of course race day! Wohoo! The race we all thought would never happen is about to erm happen.
Hello my lovely Sidepodfriends, I hope you’re all well this fine Sunday morning. Have you all got plans for today? Well it’s the opening of the Commonwealth games in New Delhi today, which means no Jake Humphrey next weekend for BBC coverage of the Grand Prix which is sad, but that’s a whole 7 days away. In the mean time we can sit back and enjoy these lovely images of the preparations for the games, as collected by the boston big picture.
Hello everyone! I hope you’re all well this fine Sunday. It’s the last day of the week, and I hope you’re all spending it relaxing and enjoying the break. I’m not sure about you but the last 6 days have gone very slowly and I’ve been rather grateful for a quieter weekend. However it’s an f1 weekend, which means lots of time being spent in front of a computer, no change there then. Although this weekend the cars are all sparkly and stuff so definitely worth checking them out. While the F1 circus (plus Amy) enjoy the humidity and darkness of everyone’s favourite night race, those of us unfortunate enough to be stuck at home must occupy ourselves with something. Which is of course what the bullet points are for;
Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you’re all well and having a nice day? I hope you’re all up to something interesting. I’m going back to university this afternoon while I try and complete my first mini project on carte de visite photography. Anyone a fan of ‘ye olde’ photographs like that? I’d love to know what you think! Aside from making my journey back I’ll also be trying to tune in to Giggles Radio at 4pm, make sure you join me, it’s going to be a great show! However maybe you’re off to the last day of the Goodwood Revival? If you are, or have been this year please please please keep us updated with your thoughts on the day, I would have loved to have gone! So, what if you have no plans today, or if you get some time at one point? Well I’ve found some ideal links for you.
Hey everyone, happy Saturday! Our lovely site owner Christine has agreed to swap daily duties with me this weekend as I’m moving into my university accommodation tomorrow (eek!) If you’ve got any advice about university life feel free to add them in the comments, I’m starting to get very nervous! However it’s not just a big weekend for me, it’s a big weekend for us all because this weekend <del>Jenson will get his 10th win </del>… I mean… it’s the last European race of the season before the circus flies off to Singapore. Anyway, lets not talk about the future, lets talk about today. Not sure what to talk about? Well I have some ideas to get you started;
Hello my lovely fellow commenters, ahh it’s nice to be back on daily duties again. I hope you’re all having an enjoyable weekend so far. I think it’s fair to say that I’ve had a slightly different weekend than I had last week. However in order to ease my post SidepodSpa blues I’m writing this daily to the soundtrack of rain. Ahhh it’s like being in Belgium all over again! Right then, on with the daily, what do we have to look through today?
Apologies for the slightly delayed daily today, I had a bit of a spider related emergency, which after a quick note from Lukeh disappeared, however the incident saw me relocating to another room in order to complete the daily safely. Any way.. on with the daily!
It’s reasonably quiet at the moment on the F1 news front, but with 11 days until the Spa GP weekend starts I’m sure it won’t be long until we get some more substantial news to discuss. I fact it’s so quiet people have started watching Football again! Come on F1 create some news for us! Speaking of Spa, while researching for topics for the daily I noticed the scary looking weather that area of Belgium is having currently. We’re going to need some waterproofs... or possibly a boat.
Hello my friends! Welcome to the first of the three Sundays which make up the Formula 1 summer holidays. I know, the thought of no race for such a long time is a sad one, but there will be plenty of different activities that we can all take part in to keep ourselves occupied I’m sure. What are you all up to today? Exciting things I hope! Well, if you’ve not got any plans I have a few suggestions as to how you could pass some of your day;
Hello everyone and welcome to a brand new month! No Mr C it’s not October, August is finally upon us! How exciting! I got the distinct impression that Mr C had somewhat of a bad day yesterday . However with the summer break, Spa meetup and the start of Amy’s epic European adventure to look forward to what more could we want from a month? Has anyone got anything exciting planned that they’re looking forward to? In the mean time we must concentrate on today, so here are a few links for your enjoyment;
Surprise!! Don’t you just love surprises! I’m not totally sure how it happened (I’m looking at you Steven) but Gavin is a bit busy so it’s fallen to me to guide you through this lovely Wednesday. With this being the middle of the week, and tomorrow being Thursday you’d be forgiven for being sad at the thought the weekend was still another 2 days away. However, don’t worry despite Mr C’s love for new daily writers (sorry I’m not new), I’m sure I can find a few links to help you all get through the day smoothly;
Hey Everyone!! Today is my first full day back from my holiday and I’m already missing the seaside! However life goes on and I must get back to doing normal things like introducing you all to Sunday! While I’ve been away there seems to have been a lot of things going on, and it seems that even moving house can be a little dangerous- let’s hope that Mrs C’s Sunday is much less painful than yesterday. Lots of things happening today to keep us all occupied though so I should get on with the bullet points;
Hello everyone and welcome to Sunday. We’ve got another very full day of sport ahead of us, the main two events for me being the British Grand Prix, and the final of the World Cup. Now, if you’ve been paying attention to the comments you’ll probably be wondering why I’m looking forward to the football today. Well, to put it simply it marks the end of it all! I’m sure many people will be sad about it, and I’ve seen many people enjoying the atmosphere over in the comments... but it’s been a month, time for a break. However this is the daily, not the football post, which means I should really get on with the bullet points;
Hello Everyone! I’m not sure about anyone else in Britain but I’ve got two minds about this very hot and humid weather. I’m partly very happy the sun is out and the past few days at the Festival of Speed have been exceptionally hot. While not having to carry a jumper around with me is such a lovely feeling, I’m typically British in my approach to summer and I’m not too keen on the silly humidity as it makes sleeping and general negotiating of busy Goodwood crowds much more difficult. I hope you’re all having a lovely time with the weather, be it lapping up the rays or hiding inside away from the rain. Anyway, you already know Lukeh and I are at Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend, however if you’re not able to attend, and with no F1 to keep you occupied here are a few things you might like to check out;
Hi everyone, the football writing duties have fallen to me today. That’s right, I take no interest in the sport at all, but I made a deal with Mr C, so here I am. Look out for Mr C’s Wimbledon post by the way. I’ll ask that you take into consideration my lack of football knowledge throughout this post, but we’ve all got to start learning sometimes I suppose.
Hello everyone, it’s a brand new week down at SW19 and after a very special opening week let’s hope we can expect more of the same brilliant tennis matches over the next 7 days. After the traditional ‘Middle Sunday’ day off, let’s quickly look back to what happened on Saturday to refresh our memories.
Wow, is it Sunday already? Goodness me this weekend is flying by! Firstly, apologies that this daily is a little late I got a little held up watching Muse’s Glastonbury set.. they were very impressive! I’d totally recommend taking a look at the highlights of the set when they appear on the BBC Glastonbury site . Whether or not you’ve been watching the various performances from the festerval so far I’m sure you’ll agree this weekend has been crazily busy! There certainly isn’t a shortage of things to talk about, but just in case you need reminding or some light relief, on with the bullet points!
Today marks the third day of the tennis championships at Wimbledon, and so far it’s been brilliant! Yesterday three high seeders found themselves packing up their racquets and waving goodbye to the grandstands for the last time this year as the smiley Marcos Baghdatis , Juan Carlos Ferrero , and most shockingly of all Fernando Verdasco  were all defeated.
