Day 472 – Back for the final

But not by choice.

So this is an interesting one. We’re heading back home today, and we’ll be back in time for the Euro 2020 Final this evening. We’re not coming home specifically for the final. I think that even if England were in it, I probably wouldn’t be doing that.
And maybe England are in it. Or maybe they’re not.
As I write this, we’re more than 60 hours away from their semi-final kick off, so I have no idea what’s going to happen.


If you’re wanting my predictions, you’re foolish. I can’t even manage to predict the result of one lot of games right, so asking me to predict to two lots is clearly ridiculous when I probably don’t even have the right teams to choose from for the second one.

Anyway, may the better team win and all that.

(I will not be staying up for the big show down between whichever South American teams end up in their final, either.)

Day 457 – Busy morning

A busy couple of days, in fact. The bar is now installed: fridges and bookcases have been moved, plans have been made for new glasses and new lighting – it’s all looking good and I can’t wait to get the last bits done.

Tonight though, I’m going to chill in front of the fire and watch some football. It’s been almost 72 hours since the last game, and I’ve been missing it. I actually got ahead of myself and thought that yesterday was Saturday (kids not at school, Mrs 6000 not at work) and was hugely disappointed not to be able to watch Denmark beat Wales last night.

Now, I don’t often do this (because it looks very silly when I’m wrong), but I’m going to see if I can predict the Quarter Finalists with any degree of accuracy – just for a laugh (and knowing that I can simply pop back and edit this post to make myself look better if things don’t go as I expect). No screenshots, please.

So, here goes:

Belgium (just, depending on which Portugal team turns up)

Wow… did he just…?!?
Yes. Yes, I did.

Let’s pop back on Wednesday morning and do a post-mortem together.
