i know this post won’t paint me in the most gloriously cool “light” ever but the World Snooker Championship began today and i’m looking forward to spending a good bit of time watching it over these next 17 days!

while still remaining ever so slightly hypnotic, watching this championship has always been something i’ve loved. in years gone by it was a massive revision distraction, but today it was one of the greatest chill outs i’ve had in ages. i came home after a long weekend away speaking and sat with mumsy, not moving for a few hours, enjoying the chat, loving the game and especially appreciating the lack of urgency of anything pressing! i’ve missed times like that recently.

i’m off work tomorrow and am looking forward to a good lie in and another afternoon watching wee mark allen from antrim try to beat stephen hendry…
