Kicked the German’s arses in their own backyard that is…not quite the 1-5 as before, but still a good result – as I mentioned, there’s no such thing as a friendly game against Germany 🙂 My dad would have loved to see the game last night – as a child growing up in France during the war, his experiences of Germans was that of bullies, I guess some of that’s rubbed off on me although I try to treat people as individuals and try not to stereotype them…
But hey – WE BEAT THEM! 😀
Yesterday I mentioned that Tuesday was a record day for hits on this blog – well, that record was beaten again yesterday – 135 hits. I broke through 61,000 hits at about 2.15pm (my post shows the time of 3.08pm, but that’s because I’d forgotten to change the time in my settings (oart of me wants it to be summertime ALL the time).
Checking the comments I get (unless you’re a regular commenter, I have to approve comments), one this morning from Sara (a new visitor – hello 🙂 ) ended with “May God bless you and keep you Baby P. Rest In Peace angel.” That says it all.
I read yesterday that Haringey head teachers had signed a petition saying that the head of Social Services should keep her job. Bullshit. She shouldn’t even wait to be sacked – she should have resigned when all this happened (August 2007). For those of you who haven’t seen it, the timeline of events is here. I dare anyone to read that and not be as angry as I am. Seriously, I’ve had some dealings with Social Services regarding my son, and the way I feel right now, they’d better not write, or, God forbid, call at my house – I just couldn’t be responsible for my actions.
I’m still not certain what I’ll do for Christmas this year – part of me just wants to get away somewhere sunny, while another part of me just wants to do my normal thing (get drunk and ignore the whole thing). I hate this time of year – my family know this, and never expect to see me in December (awaits comments on Scrooge etc.).
Did I mention we beat Germany last night? 🙂
EDIT: Oh yeah, forgot to mention it – as I wasn’t going to be driving today, I got ever so slightly drunk last night. I’ve got the hangover from hell today…sympathy please.
