So the most shocking one was that I found myself supporting Germany against Argentina. It started with a nasty foul by the Argies and then a game of football played by the Germans the way it should be played. Totally magical and heavenly to watch. The beautiful game in motion. I may not have any friends left by the time this news gets out, but I am now a German fan…
My second revelation was Twilight. OK so I know the third film is now out, but it seemed as good a time as any to catch up on the first one. I loved it. I think I am well and truly in touch with my inner tween. Edward Cullen. Yum.
I also realised that Leo is far more perceptive than we often give him credit for. My friend Justine came to see me and was bemoaning where all the time had gone since the last World Cup.
“What on earth have I been doing for four years?” she wailed.
“Sitting around drinking wine, like Mummy,” said Leo.
The Wimbledon final is about to begin and just so you don’t think I have gone totally awry when it comes to sporting allegiances I end with this…good luck Rafa, to you I remain faithful. Forever. Unless Edward Cullen starts playing tennis that is.
Was this one also set in Volterra but filmed in Montepulciano? Noticed the other day that a couple of cafes in the town offer “Twilight” menus and the number of less-bored-than-usual looking American teens has increased three fold.
Children really say the most interesting things. I have been drinking less wine and adding more gin. I need to learn how to make Pimms.
