Thirteen is the magic number

When it comes to rugby it is anyway – tonight I’m off to the “meet the team” session for season tickets of Harlequins Rugby league team. I decided that I needed to get out more at the weekend and going to the rugby would be a great way. I don’t think I’ll tell them that I’m not actually a huge Quins fan – I will be when they play Leeds or Bradford (and especially Bradford after reading this story) but not when they’re up against Catalan Dragons. My parents live in real French rubgy country and in fact the commune of Sauveterre-Comminges which is on the other side of the valley from mine is a divisional champion at what the French call “rugby a treize”.

As you will have seen from the site, I’ve been getting to grips with Twitter. I got the best e-mail today, even I know it’s automatically generated: “Barack Obama is following you on Twitter” With his 144,000 followers, it’s further proof of his ability to mobilise the digital generation. It’s not about age, as such, but openness to innovation and new ideas, and there’s no age limit on that!

We had to say goodbye to our receptionist Elodie today – she’s been an asset to the place, both on the switchboard and the front desk and we wish her all the best in her new career in Paris!
