As you will see from the pictures , I went along to the Junior School Fete ,which was well attended ,considering England played football yesterday ,they won ,but in my humble opinion not well ! I think they will have to play better than that in the further rounds ,mind it was hot ,both in Germany where the match was being played and here ...I didnt know where the school was ,but I found it OK ,on my return home I discovered I had gone the long way round ,in the heat and Ooo me feet! I didnt stay long, after,I had bought a pretty bracelet,a book on Quilts, Patchwork and Samplers,a book by an author Nora Roberts ,has anyone read her ?I won two prizes on the Tombola , Barry !...... Marks and Spencers hand and body lotion and a pkt of sage and onion stuffing !...came home by way of the market ,where I bought some raspberrys and new potatoes ,and a cabbage all farm fresh .Then watched the end of the footie !
All the football hype the last few days/weeks,reminded me of the 1966 game ....Mick my late husband was a keen football supporter,and as we had three small children at that time ,it was decided I should take the children to see my Mum and Dad ,for the day so that Mick could watch the match 'in peace'...it was a long walk to get the bus ,and my sister Jean met me the other end .....Mum decided to keep the children entertained ,in the garden ,whilst Dad ,Jean and I watched the match ,until a thunder storm forced them in doors .so they watched with us ,till ....'.they think its all over !.....it is now ! ' We loved it ,all cheering away (Jean was in love with Geoff Hurst then anyway ! )it was soon time to get the bus home ,and Mick met us off the bus ,wearing a very long face !! We all piled off the bus all excited by Englands victory,the kids ready to share their elation with their Dad ! When he announced he hadnt seen it ,well not the last crucial part of the second half...there had been a power cut due to the storm ,till the day he died he joked how it had backfired when he packed the wife and kids of to the mother in laws ,so he could watch the match in peace !!......... Have a Blessed Sunday everyone...Jan xx
