It is the night before my first marathon and, much like many other things I do, I have stumbled into it blithely unaware of what I am actually doing and just sort of hoping for the best. This being so, I have decided to share my fountain of marathon wisdom (in list format - who doesn't love a list?!) with anyone thinking of doing one themselves.

Nothing does or will ever justify public library cuts and school library cuts. Library cuts are unacceptable in the twenty-first century, in a modern country like Britain, and they should simply be made unlawful!

Since the start of the World Cup in earnest, I haven't had much game time during the opening week. So whilst at home the other day on my day-off I decided to do a little top-up session.
