I only have French TV and only terrestrial at that, so no Wimbledon for the last five years. An English friend takes pity and invites me to watch both finals this weekend. A real treat, and ice-creams thrown in too! We have fun and a great match today with my hero Federer trashing the young upstart Nadal.
A French friend has invited me for le foot tonight but I must be at home and able to me lâche un peu because it's going to be one hell of a night. I'm in a mad mood anyway and the vodka is ready for any eventuality. Actually I have two bottles of champagne in the fridge which might come in useful - one from a friend and one couriered over from a French company I mentioned favourably in an article. Now that is style à la française.
