Ill Man Returns

..........and i'm back. Not a bad weekend to be honest. Scotland did what I never imagined they would by beating France at football. They'll probably get horsed by the Ukraine on wednesday, but then I expect that so it's no real worry. I had turned the badly malfunctioning radio off in the caravan after hearing what I thought to be a 1-0 scoreline for the French(after much channel fiddling etc). When it was turned on an hour later, and I heard the actual result, I do believe the caravan succeeded in lifting a few inches off the ground.........

Anyway, nice site, friendly locals(more later) and a bit of good old fashioned day tripping. One day took me to the Museum Of Flight and Concorde, the next day to the bike racing at East Fortune and a jaunt to Eyemouth and St Abbs Head.

Then it was home to Glasgow and the crap weather and work tomorrow and................well, I feel ok but there is a wee CL caravan site in East Lothian that I can't recommend enough and I think I left part of myself there............

As per Clairwil, I am here to cheer you up. I put up a post for you.

Yeah, I know. It's warped. This is me we're talking about; what did you expect?

There's no way Scotland would have won that game if they hadn't scored more goals than France!

Your pal Clairwil says you've been a bit down in the dumps recently, Ill Man, and I entirely understand. I'm from East Lothian myself.

Still, these clips always cheer me up - What Scotsmen do at football matches -

Even if you hate them, I feel better about going to work tomorrow already.

Alan, I foresee a few drubbings. I think we'll do what Wales did a few years ago to be honest. Look like world beaters for a while then lose the plot.

Fat Sparrow, very nice of you. I'll have a look in a minute. I've been better, but the weekend did me a world of good.

Matt, it was all down to the ball boys apparently............

Cheers Haden. England shouldn't have too many problems with their group, you'll always get games like that. Oh, and when I said I left a bit of myself at the site, I wasn't referring to my toilet habits(which are impeccable). I just really liked the place and wish I was still there putting my feet up in peace and quiet.

FR, Cheers for the clips. The piss dive was fairly unpleasant, but I was cheered by the fact that the guy may be an Aberdeen fan. Loved the hamster clip. I reckon it's his party trick, probably does it a dozen times a day......

Oh, and East Lothian was ok. Suppose if you live there it's boring as fuck, but growing up and living in the city makes you immune to the crapness, for a while at least.

Hi ill man.
What a good result for Scotland. Think I may move back up there, England are really doing my head in.

Hi Viv. Sorry it's taken me so long to reply. England are poor just bnow, but Scotland will be back to normal soon. It's all been a bit of a fluke to be honest.
