Friday



Thrice this day I left the dark, dank Black House in which I dwell to see light. Once to wander all the way up to Sainsburys, once to sit in the sun, which immediately and spitefully sat behind a cloud for ages while the north wind froze me so I went to Tesco for yet another ill fitting T-shirt instead, and once in the afternoon to sit in the sun which actually shone!  Actually after burning for a short time (burning, heat in the UK?) I wandered back to Tesco for another oversized T-shirt as they appear to be half price!  The reason I went to get another size XXXL T-shirt is that all the other T-shirts I buy shrink. This one will shrink to a proper size I hope and at £2 a time it is worth a try.  XL shirts are medium, XXL and not quite XL after a wash and hopefully I have found the right sizes now, after they have been in the machine!  You might be suggesting I buy better quality items, I agree, but they too are often lie about the size. Anyway cheap is good, I'm not female!

Day two of World Cup. Yesterdays game was not great, Brasil were lucky. Today we are playing in torrential rain, it is like being in Kilmarnock again! 
However behind the numpties in the studio a long sweep of beach leads away to the north while the tide comes in with a slight breeze to ease the sunshine. Watching this on TV so far has been without incident.  Last night the ITV channel stream I watched on the laptop froze because this company is shocking! Why they cover football I fail to understand.  Their commentators are poor, the streams fail regularly and on occasion goals are missed because someone screens an advert before the time!  I had to move to STV, the Scottish Television Channel which as you would expect worked properly!  Bah!

Can't get the soccer channel on my TV ~ so missed Australia's opening game. I think we are ranked 36? I spent countless hours as a child sitting on the sidelines watching my brother play soccer when girls were not allowed to play ~ I am still in therapy for it.

Carol, Australia play in twenty minutes from now at eleven at night our time.

The t-shirts are probably made in Asia for Asian sizings. Try buying shoes that have been made in Asia...the Seven Dwarfs are the only people they'd fit...or a six-year old kid!

Just worked that out ~ the guy on the radio is watching the game right now. It is 9:30am here. Doesn't matter, I still can't get the channel on the TV. I usually watch that channel on catchup TV on the Internet. So maybe the game will be there. 10 minutes to go apparently. Chile 2, Australia 1.

Even though you have set me up quite nicely to not be so nice to you, I am compelled to say that it has been established that what may be an XL in one brand can be several sizes in either direction with other brands.

Lee, Indeed most are made in Bangladesh today.

Carol, Shame for the Aussies, but one of ours played, Ryan McGowan, an ex Hearts player.

Jerry, Me, set you up to be nasty? That's not what Arlynda says...
