A Sunday of Two Halves

Reading time: < 1 minute...

A day socialising today – and just like the World Cup, made up of two halves!

First half: 12.30 – Paul and Sue came round for Lunch…

It was a gorgeous day weather-wise and Ann ‘pulled out all the stops’ in the kitchen for a mouth-watering three-courser…

Smoked Mackerel on a bed of Watercress Horseradish Potato Salad & Spiced Beetroot…

Roast Chicken…

Cinnamon Rice Pudding with Black Cherry Compote…

Second half: 3.45pm – Round to Tom and Julie’s to socialise and reflect on England’s match against Panama. The match had kicked-off at 1pm, but none of us (and I don’t count myself as a soccer-expert, but many of the ‘gang’ are!) could have predicted the result! I’m sure I’ll re-read this B|log in years to come and think it’s a typo, but the score finished at…

England 6, Panama 1

Yep, that’s SIX goals by our national side. I can’t recall, if ever, we’ve scored that many before, in ANY match, but especially in a World Cup game!!  I think we’ve even won the Cricket against the Ozzies too! Happy days!

Most of the gang were there: Tom , Julie , John, Trish, Paul (sans Karen), Dave (sans Rosi), Julie & Al plus Georgina with many of her friends. We didn’t discuss the match much, preferring instead to enjoy a beer, or three in the continuing fantastic weather.

We stayed until about 7.30, leaving most of the others there to soak up the last of the Sun.
