At long last we seem to be having Summer. The sun has shone and the weather has been warm. All I've been able to do is sleep. I think my body must be wearing out, because for the last few days, all I've wanted to do is lie down, and when I do, I drop off.

I feel rather like our new PM, Gordon Brown, looked on the television last evening. Apparently he came back from his holiday in Dorset to lead the efforts to sort out the foot-and-mouth outbreak. All I can say is that he should go back to his family in Dorset and relax. You have ministers for that sort of thing, Gordon, and Hilary Benn appears to be one of the better ones. Let them deal with it, you look as though you need the rest.

Similarly, Ron Dennis, head of the McLaren F1 team looks pretty shattered. I applaud his ideals and values, but I'm sure they are making his life running that team more difficult. I see he is off to Barbados or somewhere nice for his hols, so in the meantime the team can sort out their differences. I find it hard to believe that Alonso thought he would get preferential treatment, but it seems he is finding out the hard way.

With the start of the football league season on Saturday, I hope we can look forward to some really hot weather, and my wife's annual hope that several players expire due to heat exhaustion.
