England will win the World Cup 2010

Thursday, May 27th, 2010


Put up the flags.

Get the beers in.

We’re going to have a street party.

With the help of our wallplanner, we’ve worked out that England are definitely going to win this year’s World Cup.

It wasn’t too hard to see who was going to win each group stage, who was going to be runner up etc. And before long we had England as world champions. I’m not sure why it hasn’t been done before. If I was a bookie I’d be scared to death that our insider knowledge might get into the public domain.

Here are our predictions for the score of the final:

England 2 – 0 Italy (James)
England 5 – 5 Italy  - England win the penalty shootout (!) (Lauren)
England 3 – 2 Italy (Amy)
England 2 – 1 Italy (Daniel)

Getting from A to B for FREE

After lots of umming and ahhing I decided to cycle to work this morning. I’m so glad I did – it was very quiet on the roads and good to get out in the fresh air too. I don’t normally cycle very far so it was a bit of a challenge, but it was fine. My bus journey from door to door probably takes 40 mins. My cycle ride took 60 mins, and it was free :) I’ll be doing it again (but not every day).
