Unfortunately, my summer has been just one arrest away from a country song. Hey, it happens...I'm just glad football season is around the corner.


Fantastic metaphor (is that the correct trope?), sounds like a story.

Football season - here to save us soon! At least the crappy World Cup is out the way (OK it was pretty entertaining but I'd like to have watched England longer).

Really? Playing like that I could barely stand to watch just 2 of the 3 games they did play!

I was poorly for one (nothing serious) and couldn't watch the last one and was left feeling that I still managed more effort than the England players did in the middle match. Appalling. Simply appalling.

England were SO bad me and the kids started supporting Holland (Man United link for us with the manager)!!! Impressed by USA effort so hope that football bug keeps growing over the pond.

On the holiday front we are all off to France soon for a coupld of weeks camping. Taking our bikes and going with close friends. Lots of great food and wine, fantastic beaches and lovely people. Great time to be had - we also turn off the phones (apart from a daily check for any family emergencies back home) and ban any internet access for the time we are away - no TV either. It is great for us all to have a break from technology. We come back feeling refreshed and raring to go again.

Up until the holiday I am just a dad's cab!!!

Speaking as a freelancer sometimes you get enforced "sabbaticals" between contracts, or "on the bench" in contractor speak. Had far too many over the last ten years. It's nice having a week or two (or sometimes a month) to spend time with family or some other project but after a while you are itching to be back earning the green.

I never seem to utilise the enforced breaks properly. I do get a mental and physical refresh but I always end up wishing that I could know how long I would have between contracts so that I could not worry and use the time more wisely. I suppose that is life though

There was no pleasure in any observation of that team it is fair to say - I did manage to get through the 2 games but I guess there would have been an unspoken proviso in my post - i.e. that they managed to play as well as say Switzerland or Ghana or some other footballing giant.

lol I'll give you that one. So far as I see it the biggest problems with English football these days is how they don't roll around on the floor when they're absolutely fine and they don't bite enough opponents.

Well, as a Saints fan I'll add the fact that other teams nick all our players as soon as they demonstrate they can manage a straight pass over 10 yards.
