Regular readers of my blog will know already that my husband is beyond obsessed with Football, anything of the Everton and or England variety goes and if all else fails then any other football team or match goes too.
Since spending most of his life on a football field, dreaming of making it his whole life his body conspired against him and so now his hopes live on in Joshua … although I am not sure there is much hope there since Joshua is not yet convinced.
After spending the whole of my pregnancy avoiding Everton football team players names (and not just the current players!) my resentment for this sport has only ever increased.
Ollie is unrelenting in that Joshua will love football but recently having found himself a best friend at nursery whose Dad obviously supports Liverpool there have been numerous discussions from my Husband to the pre-schooler about red being bad and blue being good …. did I say discussion? … what I meant was bribery and almost knee bended begging from the adult side.
Boxing day left a sour taste in hubs mouth as his beloved team lost once more and Joshua filled with glee relished in the new phrase that he and his nursery school friend are so joyous about instead ” come on Liverpool” …
I on the other hand have decided to leave them all to it and have decided to be Pampered instead of being the Football Sports Widow of old as Betfair sent me a lovely luxurious gift from Pamper Parcel instead ….
Keep you sports …
I am off for an indulgent soak in the tub with a box full of luxury and a whole load of luxuriousness that comes packed into a Pamper Parcel
For me, all I will ever need to know about football is how to dodge any further appalling name choices should there be any other little Oliver’s in the future!
Am I the only football widow out there??
