No need to escape to Turkey, Barcelona or Rome. London has it all, even fantastic weather.
And of course we are playing a football pool at work (even though a swimming pool would be more appropriate with this weather). The way we play it here : the 32 teams went in a Bobby hat and everyone could draw 3 teams from them. The person having the winning team gets all the cash.
I am quite happy with my three teams, because I managed to pick Holland (yay, and everybody knows that they are going to win this year, at least that is what I have been bragging about to my colleagues, so they better play well), France and Mexico. It could have been worse. I am not a football addict, but I like to watch things like the World Cup.
