Winning Ugly - That'll Do

Finally a chance to post after a busy but great few days. Beth came to visit on Friday and has just left today after doing some touristy things in Cambridge. It won't surprise you that Beth appreciated the old buildings and the river more than I did! Stu and Windo also popped down for a cracking Saturday afternoon in the scorching sunshine to watch England. The BBC had a big screen up in Cambridge and apparently 10,000 came to watch! Did you see us on the tele?

We had a good spot near the front after getting there 2 hours before kick off. Was good atmosphere although the crowd got more tense and frustrated as the game died and more beer was drunk. I've got rediculously embarrassing sunburn in strange places where I missed the cream! Worst is a straight line on the top of my face - you can actually see finger marks where the cream went on! oh, well, atleast it makes people laugh.

So verdict on the game - started well and then very quickly wilted in the heat. Not convinced by the tactics but a win is a win. All the best teams win ugly. More to come I hope.

Here are some more photos of our afternoon in the sunshine, with England flags, strawberries and baguettes.
