Randomly on a Thursday
I'm sitting in the lounge knitting and watching TV which is very unusual for me... normally knitting is an evening activity but I can't watch an important football match without doing something... too much tension. And normally I only watch television during the day if I have a pile of ironing to go demolish... BUT BUT BUT... England is playing Wales at football and I feel duty bound to watch the match.
More to the point I'd be cut off from all the conversation tonight at dinner if I don't. Unless England loses... that it'll be a barred subject... and I'll be surrounded by mourning faces.
Half time and things don't look too good.
Are you a football household? Are you feeling the pain?
Gratuitous picture of peonies because a post without pictures goes against blogging rules right?
Don't you hate shoes that eat socks? I spent half the time in the supermarket this morning fighting to keep my socks over my heels. I have a pair of Wellington boots that do that too. Most irritating. And I must have looked weird. "Why is that woman in the striped dress always sticking her fingers inside her trainers? Weirdo".
No 2's cricket match has been cancelled once again because of the ridiculous wet weather. I don't think I'll ever manage to watch him play this term. I'm not a huge fan of the sport... but I love watching my boys play.
There are two men in my garden cutting paving stones with the noisiest saw I've ever heard. I'm thinking to ask for noise defenders... they should have another pair in the van, right? I feel sorry for the neighbours...
Oops, the 2nd half is about to start, I better pay attention.
Wish us luck.
