Random thoughts

This morning's newspaper devoted no fewer than 12 pages to football and our side's chances in the upcoming championship. Which, realistically speaking, are no better or worse than those of the vast majority of the national teams in the pools, but if you choose to believe certain sections of the press, you'd think the Cup was in the bag already.

Or not. Because there are other sections that strike a more pessimistic note and say that our side is too young, too untried and too inexperienced to stand much of a chance in this year's top tournament. We'll see.

The downstairs flat has been sold, and according to our nosey neighbour, the buyer is 'a very nice and quiet' man with 'impeccable manners'. Which means that I'm now half-expecting to find myself living over a house of horrors in a couple of months.

My hair has grown to that awkward length where it keeps tickling my shoulders. It's annoying.

Apart from a couple of days of sunshine at the beginning, last month has been absolutely depressing, cold, grey and wet. I'm sure this is the longest I've ever had the heating on: 8 months! And still this cold spell lasts.

At least Holland made it to the finals. A lot of Irish will be supporting the Dutch as, once again, the Irish blew it on the final day of qualifying. I'll be supporting my native USA, but not to win as that would make them too arrogant. A spot in the quarters or semis would do nicely.

Good luck to your US team!

As for my own, I hope they make it through to the semis; it'd be so embarrassing if they didn't. Whether they can make it to the final is another matter though, as they always seem to lose their bottle, their luck or their heads at the last minute.

Tell you what. You send me a little of that cold, and I'll send you some of our heat.

    That must have been so hard, on both of you! Now she can settle in and you can relax.

    I feel your pain - it took me weeks to clean Frank's room.

    It must be a relief to have seen her sitting and chatting.

    I wish you well with the house clearing. I'm not sure if this is helpful - but it took my sister and I at least one full day a week for a…

    Oh my goodness! I can just feel that horrible sinking in the pit of the stomach when you realised and there was nothing you could do about it.

    I'm glad the move went so well. It sounds like it might be a great place for her.

    I'm glad things turned out okay! (Other than the rhubarb.)
