Hey honey :) Today was our first real day in Gothenburg. Started this morning with a training at the stadium. Had an hour the try out the floor and boards etc. it was all pretty similar to eerickella. Was good to have a good run around after two days off. Following this,we spent our afternoon preparing for our first game. It's starting to feel very real now. In preparation I found out that I wasn't start. This was a pretty big blow to me to be honest because it was one of my goals ...

... was only used to the Aussie renditions i.e Here's to brother so and so or here's to so and so he's true blue etc), however, we somehow mimed and hummed our way through swedish renditions of god knows what, but understood the last word, SKOOL!! open wide kids...
Soon after lunch, we went down to the local gigantic Maypole and watched the women dance around like lunatics (apparently its all to do with the history), whilst us men ...
