All that money and effort came to nothing!

Beckham’s speech yesterday was absolutely fantastic and so emotional. We sat all excited waiting for the announcement and feeling so positive England would be hosting the World Cup 2018. The whole England bid was just brilliant! When the envelope was opened and the name ‘Russia’ popped up, well, I was gutted. Like Rio Ferdinand said on his Twitter page “Prince william,prime minister,boris,becks all that effort + we still get overlooked….yet russian president and main man too busy 2 attend.”.

I’d like to go and see the World Cup in Qatar, but don’t fancy the 190 lashes and imprisonment that ‘my sort’ would be liable for. That decision absolutely disgusts me, it’s got corruption written all over it.

Great post here talking about the great Beckham! His speech made me cry, what a lovely bloke!


Premier League Fantasy Football – Giggs United

What a week! I got rid of Berbatov on Friday and he scored 5 goals the day after! What??? I couldn’t have made a wronger (is that a word?) decision. At least I kept Nani, what a player he’s turning out to be. Nani has been my captain every week until this one so there’s another booby, lol! Van Der Vaar was my new signing this week and he only lasted approximately 8 minutes, he’s now out for a few weeks with a hamstring injury, doh. Not looking good eh? Right, the race is on! I have my plans but guess what? It’s a secret! 😉

Check back soon to see the amazing predictions I made this week, or not?

It’s been a while!

Well, I’ve been a bit rubbish at this blogging malarkey but I promise, it won’t happen again!

So, what have I been up to?  Not a lot really.  We’ve booked a holiday to Bulgaria so we’re trying to save some pennies, there’s nowt worse than expecting to have a lovely relaxing holiday and then get there to find you’ve been a bit crap on the working out your ‘daily allowance’.  Ha ha!  Don’t deny, I know you do it as well!  We’re not going till June 2011 but that doesn’t stop me getting excited, already.

I don’t like to sound depressing so I’ll make this quick.  I’ve been off work for the last 2 weeks as I’m having problems with anxiety at the moment.  I’ve recently been diagnosed with ‘Social Anxiety Disorder’, I’ve never even heard of it!  Anyway, I won’t bore you with the details but I’ve got another 3 weeks off work, lots of reading and writing to do and start my therapy next week.  I know I will get there!

We went to Pets At Home yesterday and bought a bird bath and a new jumper for Molly. Here she is doing her best winter pose 🙂

To top the weekend off, what a couple of great games for United and the Town Terriers! We had United streaming online and Huddersfield Town commentary on the radio. It was crazy, it seemed as though every time United scored Town scored seconds later! lol. In case you’ve been in hiding somewhere and just happened to miss the score lines, United beat Blackburn Rovers, who incidentally are my 2nd favourite Premier League team 7-1 and Town beat Macclesfield 6-0 in the FA Cup. As you can probably tell, the Charlton-Thomas household was a very happy one by Saturday tea time 🙂

Right, better be off, I’ve got lots of reading to do and need to get them tedious ‘thoughts’ written down at some point (oh how boring).

Thanks for reading.

Before you go …
