Oh poops!

'Eeeww! Eeewww! Icky, icky!'
'For goodness sake,' Husband said. 'You've changed hundreds of nappies.'
'That's different. It's one thing being up to your elbows in baby poo; this is quite another.'

(See last but one post for context.)

I was rather proud of myself this afternoon.

I went shopping in the village and passed and exchanged smiles with a man I was in school with. Why was I proud? Because I dreamed last night about a school reunion and I resisted the urge to grab him by the arm and say, 'I dreamt about you last night!'

I was very tempted though.

It is one of the hardest things in the world to be a Wales rugby fan. I don't believe any other team puts its supporters through the extreme highs and lows that Wales does.

I won't go into details because I know most people aren't rugby fans and don't care - and if you are you will know the details - but we were winning against Australia last Saturday until literally the last minute when an Australian broke free and belted down the field to score a try and give Australia the victory.

I am only surprised that the will of Welsh fans throughout the country and the power of their screamed 'Nooooooooooos' combined didn't make him fall over before he reached the line.

Which means in the 2015 World Cup (yes, 2015) Wales have to play both Australia and England to get through the preliminary round. Could have been worse. But not much.

Maybe it was the power of the Australians, shouting at their TVs that stopped him from falling over .. :-)

'Eeeww! Eeewww! Icky, icky!' That just about sums up how I felt when I was doing the same thing....
