Midsummer Revels

1. We went to the inlaws yesterday afternoon. I'll admit to a twinge of resentment that we were celebrating Eric's fatherhood not mine. but that's my own silly fault for teaching the kids that Father's Day is utterly bogus- which it is. Alice rang while we were out. And Odi- who sees us as her adoptive parents- rang in the morning.

2. I thought the World Cup would be ghastly, but I hadn't anticipated the French team going on strike or John Terry attempting a coup d'etat against Fabio Capello. Actually, all this is so ghastly it's fascinating- which is more than can be said for anything that's been happening on the pitch. I asked Ruth (who knows about football) why our lot have been playing so badly- and she said it was because they're a bunch of spoiled brats who can't work as a team. I wonder when the penny is finally going to drop with the relentlessly exploited, relentlessly betrayed fans that they're being sold a crock of shit.

3. I see they had a lovely morning for it at Stonehenge. These pictures on the Guardian site are really rather special.
