Well, the football season is underway again and for those of you who support a team like me, our Saturday afternoons (or Sundays, or Monday evenings) are no longer our own. I'm just relieved that my team, Crystal Palace, managed to survive – in fact we officially came out of administration today… hoorah!!!
I've never bothered with a 'Fantasy Football Team' before, preferring the real thing, but when an email came round at work that we had our own 'league' I thought I would join in. I spent time selecting my players, checking their form from last season and choosing players I like and players I thought would do a good job for 'my team' – I was quite optimistic when I had finished!
Sophie, on the other hand, is not really into football and just picked a random bunch of names! How is it then that she is several places above me in 'our league'? My captain, Cesc Fabregas, didn't even play, and I've already had to buy in a new goalkeeper as mine, Mark Schwarzer, is injured!!! Oh well, it's a long season and things change, and at least I didn't buy Craig Bellamy like one of my work colleagues – he's not even playing in the Premiership since his move in midweek to Cardiff!!!
After the footie tomorrow afternoon I'm going to 'Margaret's Party'. Thankfully QVC were able to give me the evening off, if not I would never have heard the end of it from Simon Wilson!!! Just wondering what ladybird related item I can get for her as a pressie???
It means I will miss the Tiffany Lighting show I was scheduled to present but at least I have lots of them at home to look at!
See you Sunday afternoon with lovely Mally
