Actually I'm quite enjoying Euro 2012 ( a European football tournament currently being held in jointly in Poland and Ukraine). Is it because England miraculously managed to win two matches in a row? And will now play in a quarter-finals match on Sunday. Or is because there's b****r all else on the telly worth watching just now?
All I know is that the whole country is festooned in flags - mainly Union Jacks in this year of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics but the red and white cross of St George is suddenly back in favour and for sale in all the usual outlets ( supermarkets, garage forecourts etc) and flown with menace on vehicles of all marques - with the possible exception of BMWs and Volvos. Not sure about Mercs. But then I've never been sure about Mercs, especially as my brother-in-law drives a big shiny one. ( Note to self - don't go there.)
Anyway it's Greece v Germany tonight and we've just been amused by a clip of a light-hearted ITV interview with German comedian ( in a parallel universe, surely) Henning Wehn - self styled Comedy Ambassador to Great Britain. As I write it's 0-0 despite Germany almost scoring a disallowed goal due to the shooter being "off-side".
Hahahahaha! I know a bit about football but nothing about the infamous "off-side" rule. Mr EM does ( so he says) but every time he attempts to explain it my eyelids begin to droop and I hear a ringing in my ears.
I'm off to do a fair tomorrow, did I say? The Vintage and Retro Fayre by the Sea in Minehead, Somerset. See my side panel. The weather, surprisingly, is set fair.
