Football results were Arsenal 1 Manchester City 0. This was the result everyone hoped for as it kept Arsenal in third place on the league ladder. Lucky for us because our host does get just a little sad when Arsenal does not win. Everyone came home very happy. Must admit Rick and I watched the match on TV and when Arsenal kicked the goal a lot of shouting and Yes Yes Yes was heard in the living room. A good match. Just like in Australia we all rubbished the referee and all the bad mistakes they made. No world bounderies on that one. Stuart we also watched the Man United v QPR game and a decision made by the ref in the beginning of the game changed everything. The ref should have awarded QPR a penalty, it was so obvious, even to an amateur like me.
Graham has organised for us to go to the Emirates  next week. Lucky us because it is such a great feeling to be there and watch the game. I promise not to cry this time when the game starts. It is a bit emotional to be there and actually watch a British League game .
Yesterday was a very wet day. A good day to hide indoors. We had to go out to do a bit of shopping for food and garden stuff for Carol. Carol has got a job list for Rick, things to be repaired before you go home list . Yesterday the materials were bought and today the work will probably begin. At least the sun is shining this morning with lots of blue sky as well.
Feeling good.
Sorry Ingrid no photos but a promise to improve on that one, good to talk to you on Skype the other day.xo

Hi Rick & Will from the South of France. Welcome to England. We have just been catching up with your Blog and really appreciated how awful the first part of your journey must have been. We have been to Australia many times and hate the journey when it goes well so having such a long delay must have been horrible.

Looking forward to seeing you sometime before you leave on your travels.

Maybe the ref thought it had to hit the back of the net to an official goal.

Gunners v Wigan I assume??. Now that should be a cracker. Just watch us fly. I'm placing a small wager for a double on Van Persi.e
