Snails, Cheese and Wine. And Rain. And Footy.

It’s been a wet weekend. Very wet.
Latest figures from Kirstenbosch suggest that they weren’t really expecting rain at this time of year and forgot to put the rainfall gauge out. But if they had have done, it would have been full. And that’s a lot of water.
I would look it up on the SA Weather Service site, but since it got “upgraded” it’s worse than useless.

Aside from a trip to the supermarket, we stayed in. As you would have done as well.
Mrs 6000 and her chums were due to take some horses out through the vineyards in the spring sunshine, but after the spring sunshine failed to pierce the thick grey clouds above and all around us, apparently even the horses were moaning about it being cold and wet (98% relative humidity 13.8°C at 3pm), and thus a semi-impromptu cheese and wine party took the places of the ruiterkuns. Which was nice.
Especially since we didn’t invite the horses.

Snails, cheese, wine and bathing the kids gave me limited opportunity to watch Chelsea and Man U, but I did get to see the goal and yes, it was a foul; no, Drogba wasn’t offside and no, he wasn’t interfering with play anyway. And yes, actually I am a qualified referee, so **** you.
I’m sure Fergie and the Man U fans won’t be happy, but to be perfectly honest, who really gives a toss about what they think? Deep down inside they’ll be happy to have something to moan about, anyway.  

And so it’s onward and upward (the stairs, to bed), with a week full of grey, wet weather to look forward to. Happy days.

  • Amen! Jonny Evans should’ve been red carded for the studs up challenge to Drogba’s chest but (A) the ref was in a position to see it and (B) we can all admit that Didier loves falling over!

    I think the ref did ok, a little inconsistent but not bad over all. on the whole, Man United got whacked! 🙂

  • Good god man. For someone who comes from a perpetually wet island you sure can harp on about the a tiny bit of moisture 😛

  • Thanks for the wonderful words re Chelsea 🙂

  • Steven McD > You can’t expect him to get everything right all the time. But I thought he had a good game (the bits I saw).

    Goblin > “A tiny bit of moisture”? Riiiiight.

    Emil > Just being honest.

  • Not seen any of the 2nd half of the game, but Man Utd fans make me howl. Bigging up Johnny Evans for kicking Drogba in the chest but then whinging when a little shirt pull on Wes Brown in the lead up to the goal. The sort that happens in EVERY area in every game around the world :rollseyes:
