Larkham still hurt by final loss

Larkham still hurt by final loss

Nice to know but come on...they were holding on by their fingertips for the entire game. They were only in the game 'cause of a couple of stupid unforced errors by England players and it only went into extra time 'cause of a baffling penalty given by that South African ref at the death.

Anyway...the weekend. The world cup is coming, when it arrives this means an end to all other considerations. With this in mind we had a lot of fit in on Saturday...the garden needed doing top to bottom, things needed to be painted, stuff for the wedding had to be bought...if we did all this we could then justify going to the pub and watching England say farewell with a friendly against Jamaica.

England 6-0 Jamaica

It was entertaining but ultimately meaningless...Crouch's ironic goal celebration is gaining him a cult following...his penalty taking won't. Less than a week now...virtually an entire planet is counting the days.

You never know.

Sunday we got some exercise was a gorgeous day so we went for some walking in the fresh air. We plumped for Malham Cove.

Lots of nice views...

...and a pint of nice beer at the end of it.
