Calm Down, Calm Down

If I am honest I have had a real s**t time recently.

For the last two weeks work has been THE major concern in my life - everything else including 'my small indulgence' on the internet (this blog) has suffered and my LOVE LIFE too!!! LOL.

From today I hope that I will be here again each and every day especially as the start of the football season gets closer and closer.

Today, there are loads and loads of pre-season friendlies being played involving Man Utd, Arsenal and the like plus Aston Villa start their quest for European glory in the Intertoto Cup 3rd Round 1st Leg away to OB of Denmark.

Deportivo of Spain and Stuttgart of Germany also join the third round fray. Good luck to Villa.

Talking of Villa.
This morning on the radio there was a young lady ringing in to announce that one of her bridesmaid's (one of six) dresses didn't fit. She explained that last week the final fittings for the dresses had taken place and that every thing was fine, except that one dress had to have the shoulder straps cut down. So last night (Friday) dress and bridesmaid were reunited and disaster - instead of the shoulder straps being altered - the dress had been reduced by two dress sizes.

On the eve of this poor girl's wedding one of her bridesmaid's dresses now doesn't fit. The presenters of the radio show took delight in suggesting that the dress hadn't been reduced in size but the bridesmaid had put on a lot of weight in a week so the dress wouldn't fit.

Why am I mentioning this? Well it seems the theme of this young bride's wedding is all about Aston Villa Football Club.
The colour scheme is based on Aston Villa's club colours, Claret and Blue.
Results from today's action will be found in the comments section.
