The weather in London the past week has been beautiful. My weekend has been almost flawless... Jon and I walked to London Bridge and then hopped on the river boat back to Canary Wharf, where we went to a friends house for a barbeque and we watched the England game. It was a lovely day... we also watched the other two games... It was just nice because we were chatting and laughing, hugging and kissing - It's all been lovely recently
Today I popped back to my flat to pack things up - It was all going well until I noticed that my hairclip was missing. Now to put things in perspective, I bought that clip from Dubai and it was a metal clip with lovely coloured stones in. It cost me £20 for that clip alone, so as you can imagine, I am not happy! I don't want to say anything to my Landlady as she's a little feisty and will probably not give me all of my money back. :S
On a better note, I went to meet Jon in Canary Wharf as he had been at the gym. We went to watch the first half of the football (Holland Vs Serbia & Mont), then we made our way back to Jon's where we watched the rest of the match, had a lovely salad and just chilled really
Everything seems to be really positive with us at the moment - I am really happy and I hope it contines to stay this way. We seem to have more of an understanding now of how eachother are in general these days - It's helping in our everyday tolerance.
Anyway - That's it for now - Plase take a moment to check out my sposorship page and please sponsor me, it's for a great cause and I really want to make a difference. My Sponsorship Page

I have been looking around the press reports and seen these:An article from the Netherlands
The Telegraph - Newspaper
After the Norwegian official sent off Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann in just 18 minutes and disallowed Ludovic Giuly's goal, Hauge has now revelaed that in other circumstance's he may have made a different decision. He said, "I would have liked to have taken a few more seconds before I made a decision," adding, "If I'd done that, I could have given a goal and given a yellow card as well."
"It was a big game for Arsenal and to lose is a huge disappointment, so I can understand their frustration. But we'll have to give it a few days so we can discuss this more sensibly."
The above quote is from the Norweigan referee...
He ruined our season. I cannot describe how upset and cheated I felt, and I feel more so after reading these articles... there are many on the net, but no amount of admission from THAT man will ease my anger.
Had there have been 11 men on the pitch - there may have been a very different outcome - EVEN with the Barcelona goal being allowed.

I must firstly apologise for my previous post. I was pretty drunk when writing it!!!
Now my real views on the game!
Ok - I have to say that considering Arsenal played with 10 men for the majority of the game, they showed great character and did us (the supporters) proud. To hold on to a 1-0 with 14 minutes to go was very admirable. I thought the game begun in a lively fashion and promised to be a great final. Then disaster struck when Jens Lehman was sent off! Maybe a bit harsh? But the goal should have stood! Barcelona were unlucky at that.
I felt that many decisions went agains Arsenal though and that the referee did ruin it a bit for us. I think near the end, the team just couldn't fight any longer and when Barca scored to level the match, they gave up the ghost.
Star performances from Hleb and Ljungberg kept Arsenal going. Henry and Ronaldinho didn't have great games though... which was disappointing as I love them both and was hoping for a spectacular display! I thought that Wenger taking Pires off when Lehman was sent off was disappointing. I thought that he would have shone being in his country national stadium. I think if he were playing, Henry may have performed a bit better as they are a great partnership.
Pires is supposed to be announcing his move to Villa Real later on this week, I am gutted to be losing such a talented player - He will be sorely missed!!!
Congratulations to Barcelona - They were the better team on the day!

I know you are not used to abusive posts from me... however, I said I would not be disappointed if Arsenal lost to Barcelona - But I lied. I am sorry, but this post inculdes bad language.
Barcelona fucking cheated their way the the cup. We, although we had our gk sent off, were by fartch. Wthe best fucking team on the pitch. With 10 men, we were far superior. The referee was a wanker, Twat I can go on, but I won't. As I am supposed to be a respecyed memeber of the community.
What I will say is, Henry can fuck off to Barca and I hope Van Persie shine!
Over and out!
ps, I have had a bit to drink!

Now being an England fan, I am used to getting my hopes sky high and then having them dashed in the quarter or semi finals of big championships such as the World Cup!!! I am extremely excited about the World Cup this year though. We have probably one of the best teams we have ever had which include Robinson (GK), Cole (D), Terry (D), Carragher(D), Ferdinand (D), Beckham (M), Lampard (M), Gerrard (M), Rooney (F), Owen (F) who are all superstars and I think that they are a highly spirited team with some very influential players.
Now I know Rooney is injured, but he is young and in my opinion will be fit to play his part in the World Cup, maybe not from the start, but hopefully in the later stages. I am very pleased with Sven's inclusion of Aaron Lennon who has had an amazing first full season at Tottenham Hotspur. Although still only 19, he has clearly made his mark on the Premiership and after having a sensational 2005/ 2006 season, Sven rightly included him in his World Cup Squad!
The shock, however, has come in the form of a very young Theo Walcott. Although I am over the moon for the boy (I am an Arsenal fan you see), I find it hard to comprehend how his addition is going to aid the England boys. Theo has NEVER played a game in the Premiership and had only played a few games for Southampton in the Championship before his 5 million move to Arsenal in January 2006. Even Wenger was 'shocked' at the call up. But if Walcott does make the final squad selection - I wish him the best of luck and I hope he shines!
Lastly, I have to say I am left wondering if Sven is just having a joke with this year as he failed to call up Darren Bent, who has had the best season of his career. The 21 year old who plays for Charlton Athletic, has scored 22 goals this season. 18 of them in the league and 4 in domestic cups!!! So when you think that Sven has included Theo Walcott with NO Premiership experience at the tender age of 17 and has left out Darren Bent who is one of the Premiership leading scorers this season, it makes me think that he clearly doesn't care anymore, he would just like his settle ment money and can't wait to leave his post as England manager!!!
But overall - whoever goes to the World Cup - I will be 100% behind them! COME ON ENGLAND!!!

Okay guys, panic over! Me over-reacting once again! I mean, what in the name of God is up with me? lol! I am constantly worrying over things when there is absolutely NOTHING to be worrying about!
Anyway - I saw Pete last night! Was great to see him! He was lovely! Had a great night chilling out, watching the Arsenal win 2-1 against Ajax of Holland! Great result considering out circumstances! With Henry, Bergkamp, Gilberto, Lehman, Van Persie, and a few more all out - We had to play what would have been a second team. But when I saw the team sheet, I was plesantly surprised I have to Say!!!
After the football, we put on 'Save the last Dance' - What a lovely film - I really enjoyed it! The dancing, the romance, the music - what more could a girl want!
Well, that was pretty much my night! Nice chilling and for once, successful in all areas!
At work now - gotta get on - Need another coffee already! *sigh*
