I've cleared the afternoon of plans, made sure I have some popcorn in the house, and a cold beer in the fridge. Can't wait!

Channel hopping between football and Royal Ascot Mo!

Synonymous Thu 16-Jun-16 12:31:54

Anniebach Thu 16-Jun-16 12:36:59

chelseababy Thu 16-Jun-16 12:39:01

Teetime Thu 16-Jun-16 13:46:06

The DH is already esconced on a comfy sofa waiting for it to start.I am going out in ten mins so will miss it(damn!) grin

threesugars Thu 16-Jun-16 13:56:34

We're watching. Naughty packet of crisps and humus to accompany us of course grin. Go on Anniebach - there's always hope!
Tegan - I thought Ascot was rained out.

Yes. They're playing the Welsh National Anthem too quicksad.

rosesarered Thu 16-Jun-16 14:03:18

Why are Wales playing in a dingy grey colour?

merlotgran Thu 16-Jun-16 14:09:47

We're watching and I'm wearing my headphones. Not listening to anything but they deaden the sound of DH yelling at the screen.

gettingonabit Thu 16-Jun-16 14:09:57

Dunno. It's a bit weird. All the kids gone to school today in redgrin.

Great that Wales have got this far.

tanith Thu 16-Jun-16 14:11:12

We're watching but I'm sitting on the fence, OH is also yelling at the tv.

whitewave Thu 16-Jun-16 14:11:22

Well it's on but not watching it. DH is though.

I tried to do some gardening to get away from the football but it is too hot and I started to go a bit dizzy bending over. So here I am trying to ignore the football with the windows firmly closed in case there is any bad language!

POGS Thu 16-Jun-16 14:20:10

Yep I'm watching too.

Let the best team win.

felice Thu 16-Jun-16 14:21:36

Football, oh you mean the 22 overpaid men kicking a ball around, giving an excuse to yobs and hooligans to perpetrate violence and pretend they have a 'cause'. Football no.

gettingonabit Thu 16-Jun-16 14:45:32

YESSS!!!!! Go Wales!

sunseeker Thu 16-Jun-16 14:50:17

NO!!! I would rather chew glass!

gettingonabit Thu 16-Jun-16 14:55:39

England are not taking their chances. Wales have had one chance, and took it!!

Charleygirl Thu 16-Jun-16 14:55:54

I am also channel hopping but it is between Andy playing tennis and the football. Cannot class myself as English but I have lived here long enough, since 1968- longer than I stayed in Scotland.

Anniebach Thu 16-Jun-16 14:58:36

Our High School have cancelled all lessons and the students are all in the assembly hall watching the match

Pittcity Thu 16-Jun-16 15:29:16

No, because there is tennis on BBC2!

Ana Thu 16-Jun-16 15:32:16

I'm shocked, annie. So football's more important than education in your part of Wales, is it? grin

Anniebach Thu 16-Jun-16 15:37:00

A very wise decision Ana, saves the staff coping with all the phone calls this morning explaining most /children have a tummy bug. At least there were lessons this morning.
