I walk. To the car.
However, Mr Dunnit is a keen sportsman. He has no particular 'team' in football, rather a keen and if I may say, insightful overview of the Premier and Champoins Leagues. Over the years then, football particularly has percolated into my brain and I find myself not disinterested by big tournaments. I can temper that by telling you that I can sit at my desk with my back to the TV and simply enjoy hearing the roaring and groaning of a man 'enjoying' the beautiful game...I just wanna know the score.What I really love about all international tournaments - Olympics, Eurovision, World Cup - is the opportunity you get to have a closer look at other cultures and foreign parts. Not especially the coverage itself, but some of the programmes we've watched that have been created around South Africa being the host country have been marvellous. The Wags who went out there and worked really hard, Neil Morrissey and his chum crossing the African continent with some of their own brew for the tournament, cookery and history aplenty. Love that. And of course, national pride. The Rainbow Nation really are showing that pride off, in every grin and every dance..how can you not enjoy their pleasure, and the views over their amazing country. And pride here too - I have my flag for the car (which Mr Dunnit hates - says it draws attention......hell yeah!); we have England paper napkins (I must admit that we don't 'dine with napkins' on a normal everyday basis!) and we have face paints. Of course. This country is incredibly good at national (well placed) pride, we just don't show it too often, so I enjoy it very much. The endless analysis of football matches, selection processes and true interview meanings - not so much. For the love of St George though? I can live with it!
With my back to the TV I've used Crafthouse Press 'Weenicons' die cut decoupage kit for these two cards....only addition is a teensy bit of sparkle to Beckham's bling. I love the England decades card - I'm delighted that you can recognise them even though at first glance they're really similar! Well I think I can: Moore, Keegan, Lineker,Gascoine, Beckham. Great scrapbook inserts for those of us with a tale to tell from this tournament, and fab cards for Fathers Day. Ohhh, two goals then!
