Sun 25 June
We drove back from Keil and I had prawn salad at burger king on the way. Cycled to watch England game in a BG. Had to apologise to mother and daughter for swearing at the screen. Mother said in German its OK I know what it means but my daughter doesn't. After game went to zoo BG, had another 50cm bratwurst and a few more beers. Slightly sloshed then to bed.

Mon 26 June
Up and had Becky. Went back to bed until Christa came back to go to an interview which she expected to be an hour long. Did a 10k run. Interview ended up being 3 so couldn't go sunglasses shopping. Watched Italy Australia and Switzerland Ukraine games on telly with a few beers.

Tue 27 June
Brecky, exercises then 10k run. Christa friends who were going to the Spain Portugal game in Hanover arrived at 4.30. Harry ordered pizza and we watched the Brazil Ghana game. They went to the game and we left soon after by bike with the intention of watching the game in the Uni BG, but also seeing how much the tickets touts were charging. Lots of fans about again and before long we found tickets for sale. Prices ranged from €500 to €130 for a category one ticket from someone selling at cost price, but we wanted to go in together so went to BG. Great atmosphere with most support for France, then onto oldest pub in Hanover for a traditional beer taking 7 minutes to pour. Onto another pub for Capriniha but they'd stopped doing them so had a beer then home to bed slightly sloshed.

Wed 28 June
Got up quite late at 11, blogged, breakfast, went back to bed till 7. I think its all finally catching up with me. No footy so feeling a bit empty. Harry and myself went to a jazz jam session...cool...nice. The opening band listed as contemporary were a little different, piano, bass guitar and sax playing what sounded like random notes and the 2 female singers having orgasms. This old girl was in the audience with her dog which started barking when the ensemble got a little dog sounding. After they'd played one track, random audience members could join in the band. This was much better than previous. Left to go to another bar, closing due to a lack of customers, and then to this flash place. We sat at the bar but upstairs was one room, no tables full of couples caressing each other...strange. Then to a Mexican bar, then to a kiosk for wosits and milka, then home. Ate food and bed.

Thu 29 June
Up at 10, blogged, breakfast. Harrys Polish cleaner arrived rang the bell. I let her in shook her hand said do you speak English, she said nien and went straight to work while I went on computer, 2 hours later she said shoos and that was that. Christa came from work with Alexa and we went to where she'd done her MBA. Got mistaken for her husband. Then to Solvay where shes hoping to work, then shopping and back home for a quiet night and dedicated dry day. Chilled out enjoying the sun on the balcony. Harry came from work and we watched the film bridge at Ramagen which we'd visited a few years previously. Glad when footy's back on. Dreamt I'd pulled one of my teeth out and then I pulled the rest out.

Fri 30 June
Up at 8, blogged, breakfast, run, watched Germany game in my Germany top and odd sock. Harry was celebrating even before the penalties were taken. Nice to have good penalty takers.

Sat 1 July
Went to a the smallest movable micro brewery in the world. Round a nunnery next door from 12 century with storks on chimney. To Harrys mom and dad then to Heiko's for the England game nuff said. Had to put up with a few jibes.

Sun 2 July
Went to BG while Christa went with Alexa to the gym. Back to Harrys for more beer and Harry went to bed for a nap, I stayed on the balcony getting sossled. Went to a Motown and Soul night at the Jazz club in the evening. I was pissed before I got there.

Mon 3 July
Bad head up at 11. Went on a pub cycling crawl, first Gilder brewery tap, then Czech pub, student pub, another pub. Finished up with milka and wosits on balcony.

Tue 4 July
Up at 9. Blogged, run. Watched the Germany game with loads of Harrys friends at his home. Mixed feelings about them going out. Slightly smug I must admit.

Wed 5 July
Cycled to watched other semi final in beer garden with a few of Christa and Harrys work colleagues. Excellent atmosphere.

Thu 6 July
Baby sat then watched a james bond film when Harry came back from work.

Fri 7 July
Supposed to drive to Kiel early but Harry went to the shop in the car then the steering lock wouldn't work. In the end after the AA came had to get car towed to garage for repairs. Went in Christas car in the end.
