Well blow me down

We were lying in bed watching the news this morning when a sports presenter mentioned that the next England (football) game is to be against Egypt.

I mumbled sarcastically 'that'll be a real test of their skill then.'

My beloved, who isn't really interested in football, preferring rugby instead, said, 'but they've just won the Africa Cup of Nations for a record breaking seven times. It shouldn't be a walk over.'

Well, I'm not usually short of words, but you could have knocked me over with a feather.

I suggested that we should celebrate that knowledge, in the usual fashion, but she wasn't having any of it! Bugger.

Still, there's lots of rugby and football on television this weekend so that's something to look forward to.
