The weather has taken a turn for the worse here in the UK. Early October was hot and balmy but that soon deteriorated into our usual wind and rain. I've been absent from the blogging world as I've been working hard on three courses and putting together a sponsorship application for Jacob to continue his tennis development. Unfortunately, there's only the one sports award. I strongly suspect Jacob doesn't stand a chance in hell - especially if they are looking for a child already working at their full potential with a stack of national trophies. But Jacob is a grass roots player, there is so much more he has to learn. So much potential to improve. Whatever the outcome I'm hugely proud of him anyway.
