Five different venues.
Five different arrival times.
Too emotionally shattered after tonight's 'entertainment' to write any sort of coherent post.
Even Fr. J. was pacing the floor during the Enquirer's Meeting while we waited for live text updates from the Football Fanatic.
These people must be wondering what sort of religion they're actually signing up for.
Well done lads. I knew you'd do it.
Anyway, finally there was some success. Some. Not much. The streaks are more of a copper colour than actual red. In fact, my hair now reminds me of those days when I was teaching Year 1 and I got a bit too near the painting table. Still....it's a change. But somehow, I don't think I'll be bothering again.
Oh, I almost forgot. If you happened to be watching BBC News 24 on Saturday during the United and Chelsea match, and you saw a blonde nineteen year old pacing the streets outside a bar in Old Trafford with the voiceover saying:
'....and the tension is just too much for this diehard fan....she just can't watch....'
That would be the Football Fanatic. National news. Fame at last!
And as usual, David had the best answer!
I can't believe it.
You'd think somewhere as posh as The Waldorf would employ their own cleaners, wouldn't you?
I think girls, that when we've cleared up we should shake the dust of this place off our feet and never darken their doorstep again.
Don't you agree?
Girls?........hello?........where did everybody go?
Oh well. Looks like it's you and me, George.
I'll wash. You dry.
Real life will resume tomorrow. Possibly.
Now, I'm sending cars for all of you - just stand outside the front door. The drivers know who to look out for. I can't promise which car you'll get though. It could be this one:
And look - he cooks!
This is a talent he will find highly useful if the Football Fanatic eventually gives in to his constant proposals and does decide to marry him, because we all know how useless she is in the kitchen.
But for those of you who are completely unappreciative of his footballing skills and are quite happy to describe him as merely 'eye-candy' (unlike me of course), here's a couple more:
Now I think you should all go and calm yourselves down!
Well, what did you expect?
And you must admit, he is rather easy on the eye.
(Thanks Cath for your excellent instructions on how to do a screen shot)!
Well that was going to be it, since I have been trying to publish this post with a very unco-operative Blogger since seven o'clock this evening, but there is some breaking news...
The Football Fanatic is out tonight at some charity do in an extremely up-market Casino with a group of 'ex-United legends'.
I have just sent my usual two-hourly check-up text and have received this reply:
Playing blackjack with Lou Macari and Denis Irwin. Embarrassing incident at buffet. xx
I have a feeling I don't want to know.........
The Fixer and The Peacemaker:
Just in case the Father of This Lot turns up unexpectedly.
And this one from Lynn at All Things Bright and Beautiful. There have been lots of days when I've sat in front on this computer with the weight of the world on my shoulders. Well, not literally, but it's felt like that sometimes. A quick visit round these blogs has cheered me up no end: Family Affairs, Mean Mom, Beth, Merry Weather, Expatmum, Kimmie, Dusty Spider, Working Mum, Suburbia, Expatkat, Akelamalu, Ciara, Monkey Giggles, Autumn, Katney, Amanda David Carolyn, Crystal Jigsaw
And two more newly-created awards (that Fixer's got a lot to answer for if you ask me)
This one, made by Working Mum is called 'Blog of Distinction' - she's a teacher - what did you expect? It is to be passed on to those blogs which make you laugh, cry, think or sigh.
So, without further ado, here's the ones that make me laugh:
Finally, this very special award was created by Amrita. It is the custom in India to give a garland to someone as a sign of honour, respect, welcome, love and friendship
I would like to pass this award on to Renae. She'll know why.
TWO HOURS those links have just taken me.
Hope you all enjoy your awards and don't forget to pass them on.
Oh, and I may have some news regarding the Father of This Lot by tomorrow.
Did I mention he was staying the night?
