Things are just great.

I’m in such a good mood so thought I would share it with everyone…..
On Friday I drove down to Jens for her WAG hen do, small tangent here. Bob is still very close to his friends from school, there are his boys, (the lads) and the girls, (the bints). As each of the lads has found themselves a partner we were gradually referred to as the WAGs. Jen decided she would have a special evening involving the WAGs which is very thoughtful.

We went to Newmarket races in the evening which was lovely in the warm summer evening. The racing sort of passed us by slightly as we indulged in some drinking. The main event, Spandau Ballet were on. Now I know I am knocking on a bit they were a bit before my time but I have always quite liked Martin Kemp. We skulked around at the back not being able to see much but getting quite excited whenever a song came on that we vaguely recognised. Gold, True and the other one about Barricades were all we actually knew. Myself and Jen concocted a plan involving storming the stage, chloroforming the base player, taking him home and tying him up. Needless to say we didn’t succeed. Anyway, it was a very nice evening and the trip back in the minibus was rather musical and not by my doing for a change.

Next morning we lounged about for a while before driving the Aldborough which is a lovely little town by the sea. We wandered about the shops for a bit before having fish and chips on the beach in the bright sunshine. There was a lovely breeze which just made it perfect.
We drove back to Jens and all packed up and headed off.
So today I am alone as Bob is on Bens stag do, I’m on duty so can’t drink but the sun is shining and I’m lounging in the garden flicking my digital radio between 6Music’s coverage of Glasto and the cricket. I’m just full of love for the beautiful British Summer at the moment. It keeps us waiting, it threatens never to arrive and on a couple of occasions recently it hasn’t arrived at all!! So when it does appear, screaming HERE I AM HAVE YOU MISSED ME?! With the cobalt blue cloudless sky and bright sunlight, us Brits scream, loudly back yes you bastard now come here and heat my skin up, take this freaking 3 years of pretty shit summers paleness off me.
The mixture of Glasto coverage and this weather is making me crave festival action also. Don’t get me wrong I think my Glasto days are well and truly over, (I could reminisce about my trip to the 25th anniversary as a 16 year old but I won’t) but I can’t wait for the imminent festival season arrival in the form of 2000 Trees for me. Spending time with my friends listening to tunes and having a few bevies in hopefully the beautiful British sunshine is filling me full of fuzzy blissfulness. Oh things are just marvellous at the moment.

That may all change later when Germany knock us out of the World Cup!!


A very brief sporting interlude

Right ok, nothing has inspired me to blog for quite a while now this is due to a combination of factors. Firstly I can’t comment on a few of my very favourite subjects because of my job. Also one of my friends told me recently I write some of my very best blogs when I am cross and I just don;t get as cross about stuff like I used too. Or if I do by the time I find myself in front of a computer it’s dissipated.

Well I decided to harness the anger I feel right now, it concerns footy so if you aren’t interested tune out right now. I love the beautiful game but really do always feel that England never fail to disappoint with tonight being the pied de résistance. On paper England have one of the best teams in the world but against Algeria they couldn’t even score a goal. I don’t want to be one of those scathing incredibly negative proses which I am sure will be abundant tomorrow in the press. What I want to say is…England fans are the most intrepid, most loyal in the world. We will truly go anywhere to see not just England play, absolutely anybody play the beautiful game. In some cases there are more George crosses in the stadiums than the actual teams playing national flags. This is more than a game to us. And then it comes to England’s actual games. They cannot want for support, the national anthem being sang with passion, (more for football than the country itself) this is the one and only time the English are allowed to be semi patriotic. I could say a great deal more but i won’t apart from this…. On paper you are great, trueley some of the best players in the world playing the fats paced Englisg game, you have the best support in the world we will really go anywhere you do…and that’s what you give us you useless bunch of overpaid prima donnas.
