Went up my 89 year old mothers to see she gets her tablets and tea . I asked why are you not watching the football its just started , " who's playing " " England against France " , "dont want to watch it we will loose ."
I switched it on and while making her tea in the kitchen spotted the first goal, i shot in for a better look , " Who,s got the goal " , " England , out she shoots from the table. " Get me my glasses and hearing aids quick , come on be quick "
Then it started , look at that they cheat , they cant play for toffee , kick it , 89 and shouting at the TV telling them how to play . Mam you are getting to excited , should I phone the doctor , " well what do you think we scored a goal and are winning , anyway shut up you are disturbing me and my football match . I walked off into the kitchen ( I know when I am not needed ) At half time , " be quick with my tea" , she knocked it back along with apple pie and custard , but because the match started again she shot in to watch TV and left part of the a/pie . Funny as a lad if I had done that , I would have been told " eat it up or you get no more " . I left for home my mother shouting at the TV telling them how to play , " kick it, are you blind " .
Could not help but laugh as I drove away , she is the same with boxing stops up till the early hours to watch both .
