Yep, it's good to be back (although I spent a few hours looking for some 'misplaced' items, i.e. A Level certificates, which everyone at home denied touching ).

Eogorgon, hopefully

First time back home for a while, is it? My uni is right next door to where I live, so it's awfully convenient.

I have returned home in the past 10 weeks or so, but it was only very briefly (going home on Friday afternoon, returning Saturday midday), and even then I think I disappointed my parents by just sleeping like a log for most of the time that I was there

I assume you're staying over the Christmas period this time?

Going home for 3/4 of a day . You'd be beat from the trip, so no wonder you slept through most of the visit. I'm knackered after a trip into Glasgow for the afternoon. And that's only a 30 mile journey

Yep, and it's a fairly lengthy holiday so I should be able to enjoy some serious time off.

'Knackered'? Man up, as they like saying here

Default Re: In the spotlight

I have a suggestion for dealing with the spotlight threads if they're considered to be a problem - not sure if it'll be welcome or not though . Allow a thread, once opened, to stay in non-tennis for 3 days (or any other period of time) before moving it elsewhere, which would give people a chance to stay in the 'central' area and answer more questions, but prevent everything being clogged up at the same time.

EDIT: Of course, I have no problem to just leaving them all here

These "spotlight" threads are the good thing in the off-season I can be in the spotlight but don't want to reply for extremely private questions.
