I've had an exciting evening involving the playing of rounders and the spotting of celebrities. The rounders match was between our team at work and a similar team from another organisation.
It was a glorious evening in London, hot but there was a breeze which made it perfect weather for a sporting event of this nature. Our team was mixed abilities and all kinds of ages. Unlike the other team several members of our team were not drinking alcohol nor were we smoking cigarettes. This gave us an edge and I am pleased to report that we killed the other team.
I think I last played rounders about 30 years ago. I have to say I really enjoyed it and as I have done very little exercise in the past few weeks it was good to get moving again.
During one of the numerous breaks I noticed a man walk past. He seemed quite interested in what we were up to. Surprisingly I recognised him as I rarely know who people are even if they are my work colleagues or members of my extended family. When I do see famous people I always assume they are the receptionist from the GP surgery or someone I see on the train in the morning. The famous person I saw was Russell Brand and he was accompanied by Jemima Khan and a large dog. Some kids cycled by and asked him if they could have a photograph with him and he obliged with good grace. It must get very tedious being stared at all the time.
I do get fed up with my job but I know that I am very lucky to work with the people I do, especially people who are so good at rounders.
