There was a fantastic atmosphere in our local town today. There was a carnival just before lunch, followed by the England-USA match. Everyone was ebullient; adults as well as kids were painted and dressed up. The weather was good too. When we got back to the village there was a cricket match on the green! It was a bloody marvellous day to be in England today.
On a different note: we went round to my mother-in-law’s. One of her vacuum cleaners has stopped working. My hubby opened it up and found the bag wasn’t fitted properly and the dust has collected in the space there. So, it was duly emptied and he brought out the small hand-held vacuum to suck up the remaining dust. The hand-held wasn’t working either. So, he opened that up – yes, you’ve guessed it, same story. Boxes withing boxes…. It was hard not to laugh! Good old-fashioned dustpan and brush came to the rescue. Can technology become so advanced it becomes stupid?
