There was a pale sun shining through the thin cloud as I hobbled round to market this morning. I went to obtain Thick Brown Tape for the pacjage I must send up north. Luckily the cards I bought online from 'Etsy' arrived today, this means I can sort them out, send them off and finish others cards. Only the one or two online shop left after this. I boast to others about my good work, they are all very rude about it! Apparently, though they have time, and have been aware Christmas is coming, they are not yet ready, many have not begun the task. Naturally I rub it in, somewhat exaggerating my worth. This does not win me friends.
I had almost finished the bread I bought yesterday, this meant wandering into Tesco for a loaf, and only a loaf, but I accidentally bought other things, much needed, along with a, reduced price, bottle of Courvoisier Brandy. I am not sure how that happened.
When I got home I found I had forgotten the Brown Tape!
Even I am wearying with all this non-stop football. At the last World Cup I believe we only had three games a day at this stage, just like the Africa Cup of Nations also had. Now we have four games daily until the knockout stage, and it takes a toll. The routine has gone, things are rushed to fit in, and then the game is often ignored as other duties arrive. I would love this if I were 15!
However, one aspect is the chance to get involved with a stramash on Twitter about English football hooligans. Naturally I trolled a wee bit, but the English are so imperialist, it comes out when you correct the media in that they are 'English fans, not 'British!' Lots of laughs here! The lack of knowledge about Scotland and the United Kingdom is apparent and all too easily brought forth. Still, now I have several English enemies I did not have before, and one or two new friends. It's all a laugh really.
