Pig in clover

Another lovely sunny day. May it never end. The Minster bells are chiming away in the background* and all is right with the world.

I was woken this morning at 7.30am by someone excitedly shouting 'Eng-land!!!!!!' It wasn't actually the partner. Since the upstairs windows are left open, we can hear any noise off the street. This was patently a neighbour and I don't know if he was just coming back from a very long session in the pub, or had just arisen and realised that today is the day for World Cup Football - it's England v Paraguay. The partner is currently outside weeding the front garden, but will be in front of the tv by 2pm, that's for sure. I take a look as well, in my red t-shirt.

But best of all, today's mail brought the latest Historical Novel Society publications - Historical Novels Review and Solander. Yummy.

*All very well, but sometimes we can hear the Railway Station announcements or Intercity trains revving up or down too :-)

Yay! I'm very happy to hear you got your magazines. This is the first I've heard that they were back from the printer. Hope they were worth the wait :)

Sarah: Yes, they were worth the wait :-)

Gabriele: As an England fan, I have only a few choices for a retort ... ;-) btw, I hope our fans will remain well behaved, but sincere apologies if they don't.

Funny, I have been trying hard to ignore the loud sports match that my husband's been watching on TV. Was I surprised to turn around and see that it's World Cup Soc- uh, I mean football. :-) Must be on a tape delay.
