An action packed weekend, with a mix bag of results. Liverpool managed to beat Manchester United in the FA Cup for the first time in 85 years, with the only goal coming from the head of Peter Crouch in the first half. The game finished on a sour note though, when Alan Smith broke a leg and dislocated his ankle blocking a free kick from John Arne Riise.
At about the same time Clydesdale Vs were throwing away a 2-0 half time lead against Motherwell, to finish up hanging on for a 2-2 draw. At least the weather was a good deal better than it was last week in Greenock. The latest round of snooker saw Darren winning this time 4-1, although it was probably a bit closer than the score suggests. Three frames went to a black ball finish, one was won on the pink and the standard of potting has definitely improved since the first time we went!
Megan’s new garden play house/swing arrived last week, or at least most of it did – we’re still waiting for the slide and swing bits. Spent Sunday morning dismantling the old one, which had suffered somewhat from the bracing sea air – all the nuts and bolts had rusted solid so it was no easy task. Hopefully the rest of the bits of the new one will turn up this week and we’ll put it together next weekend.
