And we’re off. Italy and Bulgaria got the World Cup underway with a 1-1 draw at the Estadio Cuauhtémoc in Puebla. No doubt Motty was getting over excited at the thought of all of those Bulgarian players, whose names ended in ‘-ov’ (that’s all of them).
In other news, and this is quite some ‘other news’ I had my hair permed (at the back only – you know the style, Mullets R Us). My mum did it for me and she did a pretty good job. However, it was to be sorely tested on the Monday following (2 June), and by the end of September, it had found its way onto the barber shop floor… quite right too!
