Are you ready for some football...

Despite living in the UK and hubby being Scottish - we are both fans of American Football.  Hubby's passion started through the humble Amiga (I think) with a game called Fourth & Inches by Sierra Games.  Little did he know that the team picked then (due to the logo being a rather nice arrowhead) would be the team he still supports each season today.   I know, I know - all you Americans can stop laughing....the Chiefs have not done that well of late, but once you pick a team that's it right?

So tonight we stay up till about 3am (I will try - can't promise anything)...to watch the Pittsburg Steelers play the first time Superbowl visitors the Arizona Cardinals.  Hmmm Go Cards!!  (Gotta route for the underdogs right??)

This weekend has been fun.  Friday afternoon I went to pick up an expectant Nephew to kidnap him for the weekend.  Sis and BiL wanted to paint his room and wanted him out the way for a surprise on Sunday.  We had fun making pancakes for breakfast on Saturday, going to a friends birthday party and generally having fun.  I have not long gotten back from driving him home - where I left a light sprinkling of snow in Kent...soon to be a lot more apparently????  We shall see tomorrow.

House Update: No offers, one possible visit from a builder next week to see if a toilet can be squeezed under the stairs to satisfy one potential buyer.... and on sneaking a peak at the "house I like" in Cornwall - it looks like no offers so far (but I am not keeping my hopes up I promise!??)  

I now confess to having woken up at 4.15am this morning...and proceeding to arrange all our furniture in the "new house" for about an hour or so...dangerous business.
