Hi guys,

Thanks for the fantastic blog. I am gutted to be missing the badminton because of an afternoon exam but this is making the pain slightly better (and the revison slightly worse).

Well done Mixed A and Mens B!

Why do the eminent journalists of Nouse have a copy of the Daily Mail in the office? Won't Sanchez be turning in his editorial grave?

Dampened by the damp? Surely you can do better than that Woolf. It doesn't even need to rhyme

Still in my yellow steward's shirt. Alex got very upset when I asked for a pen to write 'Not a' above 'Steward' on the back of his nice new shirt but I didn't want to be asked questions I hadn't a hope of answering. The ever-resourceful Caroline, my PA, has liberated two safety pins from name badges and the 'Not a' sign is now neatly pinned to my back. So please don't ask me any difficult questions about where the women's 3rd tiddlywinks is playing - I dunno.

But I am pleased to see York pulling ahead as the afternoon wears on. The Registrar and I were gutted to note a score of 10-11 at one point - you see how we interrupt high-level discussions to check on the state of play. 28.5 - 11.5 is MUCH more acceptable. Keep it up!

As for a Daily Mail quick crossword - shame on you! I did a major training session on cryptic crosswords with one of you only last week so sort yourselves out and get into the big league, Nouseteam.

RE: Raf Sanchez (Editor 2007/8), what happened to Nouse's hilarious 'Editor Emeritus' title? Is that reserved for Heidi?

You're welcome to the mead. And the Guinness.

Just try not to break anything or annoy my housemates too much!
