Tired ? Moi ?
Three o'clock on Saturday morning . Wilf is asleep on his back snoring contentedly away . Angus is watching Scotland nearly lose to Romania in the World Cup Rugby. After a good first half everything seems to go wrong in the second . Maybe the team is suffering from jet lag ? At one point Romania is ahead 24-21. Wilf raises an eyebrow as Angus becomes ever more impassioned . Final score Scotland 34 , Romania 24 .
This morning Wilf is suffering from a bad hair day . He chooses not to join me on the croissant run into town, opting instead to complete his beauty sleep . Angus has three cups of coffee at the bar under the arcades returning to find a PON with his chin resting on the front doorstep breathing gently .
After his late night Wilf has that ' I'm not asleep but that doesn't mean I'm awake ' look to him .
Now eight o'clock on Saturday morning . Across the lane in the village hall the local farmers and their sons are already congregating to watch France play Japan . It's going to be a long seven weeks.
