World Cup Fever!

Urghh! It's the World Cup season again... thankfully hubby isn't a fanatic although I'm sure he will be watching some of the England matches. Used to have an Ex who was really a fanatic and remembered having to cut short my shopping trip so that he could go home and watch a soccer match! How annoying!

What annoys me most about this coming soccer season is the emphasis on Wayne Rooney... gosh, one would think he's is THE ONE in the team... sorry but there are 11 players in a team, not one! I can imagine how the others would feel, being in the squad but being ignored for just one player. Ok he scores goals but hell if the others can't defend or give him the opportunity to score, then he can't do much! Besides, the over emphasis on his broken heel has indicated to the opposing teams England's weak spot, no doubt they will be aiming to tackle Rooney as much as they can!

Postie brought me some lovely papers but these are for the birthday swap that I am taking part at UKScrappers. Thought I had better get it sorted early. Just have to add a couple more bits and I'm done!
Received my LO for the Scraplift challenge and spent the afternoon doing it. Wasn't too pleased when I'm done.... scrapping mojo isn't functioning at its best! Anyway, decided to play with my camera and took candid shots of the boys... I'm still trying to figure out how to use my Nikon digital camera (just a small one!) It annoys me when you end up with blurred shots at some good images. Then again, I see no reason why not to use them, since photo software allows you to play and alter images pretty well.

Ordered a couple of scrapping books, Designing with Type and Scrapbook Designs (from Scrapbook Etc.) Heard some good reviews of the latter so will be interesting to take a look. Also, ordered some Provocraft tins from Papermaze as well but these will be for my son's teachers. Had better sort their pressies out early as it won't be long before the end of term draws near. Morever we are leaving slightly earlier for our vacation so best get them sorted. Gonna decorate the tins but haven't decided what to put in there... might make them some cards and other bits and bobs!

I'm married to a football fanatic! Good job we have 2 TVs and that I actually like footie. I agree about the focus on Rooney though... he is good but as you say it IS a team sport!
