Hello my dears, how are you? Long time no see, in terms of daily posts, anyway. I hope you had a nice weekend, nice enough that Monday is not such a drag. Do not worry. If you don't like Mondays, it will soon be Tuesday, and they're not so bad.

What are you going to be doing today? It's the first day of Wimbledon today, and just like last year, I'm hoping we'll have a post for every day of the Championships. I may or may not be Factbyte Factboxing some of the bigger matches too, it all depends on the weather. As do most things when it comes to Wimbledon. If you're interested in tennis, keep an eye out for the live post coming later today.

Martí has a new blog, which he just set up recently. It's in Spanish, which you should be proficient at after many weeks of Spanish Wednesdays, but if not, there's a handy translate button in the sidebar. Martí also set up a motorsport focused Life List - things he wants to achieve around the world of racing. I love the idea of a themed life list, it's something that never really occurred to me before. Go and check it out, and why not come up with your own list of things you'd like to do? It's really quite an inspiring and motivational thing to do.

If you've been wondering where the podcast is, Mr C and I finally managed to record the latest F1 Debrief show yesterday, and it should be out at some point during the day. It's another long one. The more we hope for shorter shows, the more there is to talk about.

Whilst I'm self-promoting, don't forget that it's Christine's Rankings tomorrow, and all suggestions are very welcome. The non-race weekends are always difficult to judge. Sometimes the drivers and teams go into hiding and there is very little to dish out points for, but other times they are busy doing all the things they can't do when there's a race on which makes it a bumper points week. Which will it be this time? If you spot something, do shout. Mark it with the hashtag #rankings in the comments, and I'll be sure to see it.

I may as well continue the theme and plug our app and book once more. I also want to say a massive thank you to everyone who bought the book, or purchased the app. These are things that Mr C and I have been working on for ages, they've been both hard and brilliant at the same time, and the support of the Sidepodcommunity means a lot. So, thank you.

It can only be left to say congratulations to Giggles and Kat, who welcomed Baby Giggles into the world yesterday. Nina already has her own domain and Twitter account, so we're expecting a comment any day now. I shall head to the comments to wait, and I might see you there.
