      But this time people are speaking up. In their hundreds of thousands. Millions are speaking up. We will not let the bigots win.

      I have my fingers crossed for Northern Ireland, the Republic and er... Iceland. I'm English, but I've really enjoyed seeing Iceland do so well in their first tournament. Have you heard the clip of the Icelandic commentator's reaction to the goal?? Priceless.

      I'm fine now, it was just dehydration. I did lots of jumping about but little access to water. They started at about 7.45-8pm.

      I have a wonderful friend in New South Wales who had some U2 books she no longer wanted and sent them to me on the other side of the world - completely free of charge! I'm so utterly grateful to have such amazing friends.

      We'll get our results in mid-July. It was also fun meeting students of other subjects at the exam venue and chatting to them about what they are studying.

      padawanbeck84

      Hopefully yes. I am signed up to hear from Nexus Heritage through the year to know if they are doing any more digs in Shropshire. I may also get to help with digs as part of my new role at Ironbridge.

      Barcelona won the first leg, but you always have the 2nd match. I'll be able to watch the return leg as it is on TV here in England next week :)
