Back to Earth

After the excitement of the weekend it was a bit of a comedown going back to work this morning.
Things had started to take a downward turn late last night when I was following the progress of Tottenham's game V Blackburn on the net. Having lost in Europe midweek and fired the manager because of the poor start to the season that has seen Spurs win just one game from 10, they then went and conceded a goal in the 93rd minute to lose 2-1!!!
Ironically, a few miles away, the New York Giants (my NFL team) were beating the MIami Dolphins at Wembley Stadium in the first NFL game ever played outside the US.
You win some you lose some!

The Heir slept a long time today, part jet lag, part party lag I suspect. Favourite Daughter has been relegated to the sofa now that he's back. She has a bed and a home to live in in Dunsborough but is preferring the company of the family at the moment. It's the first time we've all been together for a long time and it's good to have everyone together. Sport Boy is loving it.

Tonight I initiated The Heir into the joys of junk mail folding! The best way to do it is in front of the TV so at least your brain has something to focus on. We watched 4 Corners who had a damning report about the Federal govts suspect decision to replace the very dependable F1-11 fleet with some very expensive and seemingly inferior Hornets. It didn't sound very good and was probably not the best news for the govt as it moves into the third week of the election campaign and is still trailing in the polls.
And as Molly Meldrum once famously said, "Not that there's anything wrong with that"!
