I learned last week of some people who are rich enough to pay people to play in bridge teams with them at international events. I’m not sure how I feel about that. Envious perhaps? Wouldn’t it be nice to be good enough to be asked? Yes it would.

And why am I at home instead of at bridge? Well Groover got a late call to Karratha so here I am babysitting. Sigh.

Still what with Art in Bloom, an impending strike action, the Grand Final parade coverage, two funerals, commissioning and the Royal Show looming, I could probably do with an early night.

Anyway Idol is on.
