What heatwave? You Brits do get excited about a bit of sun don't you? It was bloody freezing at Gatwick airport this morning and it was drizzling. The bloke stood next to me on the train to London Bridge had a ruddy scarf on.
Today is a work day mostly. Then tonight we have our annual fantasy football drinks and prize giving that a mate and I have organised since the mid-nineties. Both of us have worked and lived abroad and it has been a great way to keep in touch with old work friends so I am looking forward to that.... standing outside the pub getting pneumonia no doubt!
I'm going to avoid all football this weekend, I truly don't mind whether Swindon or Millwall win, and likewise Daggers and Rotherham. I have a soft spot for Ronnie Moore ever since I bought his left pinky but Dagenham would replace Southend as a sort of local derby. Was Shaun Newton's injury time winner in that FA Cup replay really 9 years ago? Depressing.
