That’s that, then…

England are out of Euro 2012.  After being thrashed 0-0 by Italy,  they went on to beat us on penalties, too.   It was ever thus.

Germany are upset.  They were hoping we would win,  so they could have a leisurely stroll into the final.  Now they’ve got to play the Italians, instead, so will have to put out their best team for the next game, instead of a man with a broken leg and ten of his friends.

I sometimes feel our bathroom will go to a penalty shootout.  There’s been a problem with the shower today.   One that, quite honestly,  beggars belief.

I’ll bring you up to date tomorrow. In the meantime, here’s another silly photograph to make up for keeping you on tenterhooks:

Thought for the Day

‘I bought a musical mug the other day.  It tells me I’m a loser and a waste of space.  It’s the cup that jeers.’   

Ethelred the Unready (c 968-1016)


About Chester Crump

Chester J Crump has spent a lifetime in cheese. His company, CC Cheese Ltd, was voted Door to Door magazine’s ‘Smallest Retailer of the Year’ from 1985-2007. Cheddar Today described him as ‘Chester Crump, aged 45’, while the UK’s most successful broadsheet, The Daily Telegraph, has never mentioned him at all. In his spare time, and under a completely different name, Chester has written gags and sketches for a wide range of TV and radio shows both in the UK and mainland Europe (BBC1, ITV, S4C, Radio 2, Radio 4 and the World Service – among others). A published writer for children, teenagers and adults, he has also performed stand-up comedy across Yorkshire and, in 2011, at the Edinburgh Fringe. Ten years ago, he was rumoured to be the constant companion of Sarah Michelle Gellar – TV’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and, more recently, that girl out of EastEnders whose name no one can remember. When he’s not writing his blog, Chester attends second-hand hat conventions, and has what many believe to be the largest collection of used headgear in Yorkshire. He is married to a woman, and lives in a house. All the above is completely true – with the possible exception of the bits about cheese. And Buffy. And EastEnders. And hats.
