It's Friday...

1. My favorite food seasoning is
something spicy.
The quietness of the moring by a river is music to my ears.
3. Lucky is
toast butterside up.
Fairness is something I take very seriously.
5. Many people find it
hard to take personal informed decisions - follow the masses !!.
Ingredients for our Tuscan Chicken lunch was the last thing I bought at the store.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to a
 curry after a days fishing, tomorrow my plans include watching Hertford Town play 61FC and Sunday, I want to relax!

Strange colour outside...

So, where's all this global warming then?  

Here we were expecting good old England to be as balmy as the Med in a few years - you know, brown slopes and olive groves - long warm autumns....RIGHT!!!

but..according to the The Telegraph, it's good for us...

Daily Pic..

Well it can't be called daily as I haven't posted one since .....  :-)

Again, I've delved into my 'archive' to find one, in fact 5...Five  generations...


In no particular order :-

Grandma, Mother, daughter, grand-daughter, great grand-daughter!!

It's just gone Friday....

So here's my Friday Fill In...

1. Right now, I'm feeling relaxed but a little bit thoughtful, sat watching the Air New Zealand Cup Final from Wellington - just memories that's all. 

2. I am where  
I want to be.

. How does one juggle?

4. Getting on a bit (and SUzie!!) 
keeps me on track.

5. Please don't assume you know me.

6. Happy people without agendas 
fills me with joy.

. And as for the weekend, today I'm looking forward to a gentle afternoon of football watching at Hertford Town,  my plans also include a wander around the town and Sunday, I want to to go fishing here!

LIfe, football and all of that.

So, how have my chosen teams been getting on in my absence from these boards?  Those who have followed these ramblings (HELLO DEBS!!) will possibly know I follow these teams through either a lifetime of struggle, having lived there or some other tenuous link ...

Watford FC.  We're doing ok...19th in The 
Championship BUT the football is much more fun than last years dross. A club I've supported from 
(Recall supporting Leeds Utd for some reason (probably the Yorkshire link and the fact that my 
cousin Christine's other half followed them)). 

We moved from Eaglescliff when I was a 5 something and I grew up in Chesham, a few miles from the ground. My best mates brother was  fan and led me down the demon path when WFC were a spot in the lower leagues.  Find their history here.

Moved here just over three years ago to be with Suzie :) Decided 
to watch the local non-league team when I could and have gradually become more involved!! Going to watch them today over at Watford (Oxhey Jets) with our new manger - Ossie Ardilles' son

Then there's this lot -  The Mooloo's !!!  Otherwise known as Waikato Rugby Club in Hamilton New Zealand. 
Now, when we were planning  trip last year I look
ed up which club was closest to Tauranga, and it was The Steamers. BUT when I was unpacking at Jack and Denice's paradise, they noticed my Watford scarf and suggested that I had come pre-pared!! Just look at the colours and you'll see why... So now I'm  fully committed Mooloo supporter ( they lost their last game of the season last week to Hawks Bay in the Air New Zealand Cup).  

By proxy, I'm also a follower of this lot as well - the regional kiwi team that plays in the Super 14 cup... Go Chiefs!!

That just leaves Yorkshire Cricket Club, England in all sports, Andy Murray and school!!

64 Days..not that Suzie's counting...

Seem to have lost the habit of posting regularly - too much other 'stuff' going on, mainly the usual football message board surfing and general browsing.  Haven't even been reading or fishing lately so not much to catch up with either.!!  

A quick recap of our life recently then....

Went here and lost (that's not true - I didn't even get the chance to feel the fish on the line I cocked it up so much) my biggest ever fish...

Went to Hertford last weekend and watched this game with Stephen R, then a chilled evening watching England in the pub and a curry afterwards.

Thursday Suzie took me to Castle Hall to watch 'Kiss Me Kate' by our local amdram HD & OS - good fun.

SO, now I'm back, let's get posting.....
