I'm not going to be my usual chirpy self in this post. No more silly jokes about quiche, horoscopes or David Beckham's aftershave, I'm too depressed. For years I've enjoyed watching, now it's finally over. How could they do this to us? Yes, the news that 'Top of the Pops' was going to end after 42 years, ruined my week.... or so I thought. However, yesterday proved to be an even bigger disappointment. I really thought we had a chance this time. But we just weren't good enough in the end. Tears all round, I'm afraid.

I might as well get all this misery out on one post. Tim Henman and the tennis, he's out as well! Completely thrashed by the lovely Roger Federer. Oh dear, and I have the photo's to prove it.

Apart from the sporting disaster, I had a fabulous time at Wimbledon. All thanks to the very clever people at IBM. (Sorry I don't know what it stands for) Important Business Man?? They apparently have been providing the technology there for the last 15 years. Well I was very impressed, and thank you for that. If I ever feel the need to set up my own global multi million pound company, I will be sure to use IBM to do all the complicated stuff with computers. I didn't get to meet the famous Mr Hawk Eye though, I think he was busy.

The newly designed Ralph Lauren uniforms for the Wimbledon officials looked very smart. I especially liked the navy blazers, ideal for going to football matches.

Still there is some hope it seems for British sport. With the tennis again, the unbelievable Andy Murray yesterday, beating Andy Roddick in straight sets. Long may that continue. Heather x

    Hi Tom, glad you enjoyed my blog. There is no secret that I'm aware of. Bit of a surprise to me as well. But it's really nice to read the comments, they do make me chuckle.

    Had a look at your one, really interesting, what an experience you've been through! I hope you are feeling better and still on the mend.

    Sorry, just no substitute for the footie. Watching Murray subside on Monday was the final straw.

    Always had a bit of a sopft spot for QPR as it happens (although am a Palace fan myself). Why do you ask?

    Keep reading! (although admittedly not much to read at the moment as am too lazy and still depressed about the football).

    IBM stands from International Business Machines. So there we go. And now Murray is out... Who to cheer for? Woe is quite literally us.

    Dear Mandarin orange, I agree it's a disaster all round! Regarding QPR, see 'help me decide' post and comments. Heather
