Glass of Champagne

Sailor

I’ve got the money, I’ve got the place
You’ve got the figure, you’ve got the face
Let’s get together, the two of us over a glass of champagne

I’ve got the music, I’ve got the lights
You’ve got the figure full of delights
Let’s get together, the two of us over a glass of champagne

Now, I’ve been waiting much too long
For this moment to come along
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah!
(A little glass of champagne)

I’ve been thinking night and day (night and day)
For this moment to be this way
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah!

I’ve got position, I’ve got the name
You’ve got the power to drive me insane
Let’s get together, the two of us over a glass of champagne

I’ve been waiting much too long (much too long)
For this moment to come along
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah!
(A little glass of champagne)

Let’s get together, the two of us over a glass of champagne

The Marriage of Heaven and Hell

If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.

Super time today @comtpon_verney one of our favourite places. The trees, the lake, the activities.

Great day, amazing food, live music and sunny weather

Explored the magical world of Alice in Wonderland at Tea in the Park. Croquet, a flamboyance of flamingos, red roses, journeying through the rabbit’s hole and taking advice from a caterpillar

Wonderful day @compton_verney for their tea in the park. We explored the grounds following the Alice in Wonderland theme!! Lovely live music and lots of arts and crafts activities for the little ones to the slightly bigger ones and the grown ups had fun too!

Today we went to Compton Verney, Time for Tea Event. It was a lovely day out with my husband, children aged 7 and 5, my brother, his wife and his two children aged 3 and 20 months.

There was an Alice in Wonderland themed🐰 trail where the children were given a map to explore the grounds and meet all the characters (who gave them stickers to add to their maps). There were fun craft activities including making roses. The children got to try croquet. We traveled on the ferry across the river and the children enjoyed lending a hand pulling us across.There were Morris dancers, a band and dancers. The staff were all really lovely and made it a very well organised and enjoyable event.
☀️Along with all the beautiful scenery it was a fun packed day. We decided to purchase an annual pass which will work out as great value for money and I’m planning lots of future trips.

Man City 2 Spurs 2

In the late kick-off in the Premier League, Rodri’s appeals for an early penalty went unrewarded when he tumbled in a tangle with Erik Lamela, as referee Michael Oliver and VAR felt no offence had been committed.

But Manchester City did not have to wait long for the opener, however.

Kevin De Bruyne’s whipped cross from the right of the 18-yard box after 20 minutes was met by a Raheem Sterling header back across goal and beyond Hugo Lloris – his fourth of the season.

But Spurs hit back inside three minutes, Lamela planting a well-placed strike past Ederson from the edge of the area to make it 1-1.

City’s lead was restored in the 35th minute, when Aguero glanced in a close-range finish from another De Bruyne delivery.

Spurs levelled for a second time when Lucas Moura towered above Kyle Walker and nodded the ball home – seconds after coming on as a substitute on 56 minutes.

Pep Guardiola swapped Sergio Aguero for Gabriel Jesus who thought he had won the match for City when he buried the ball into the bottom corner deep into stoppage time.

However, their celebrations were muted when VAR disallowed the goal after spotting a hand ball by Aymeric Laporte in the build-up – leaving the sides to take a point apiece.

Family

Come play with me boys
Let us look for pigs on the wing
Let us bridge that gap between the ages
We won’t see them
But we can try
We can imagine
For you are me and I am you

Come play with me grandpa
Let us look for alien visitors
Let us bridge the gap between earth and space
We wont see them
But we can try
We can imagine
For I am you and you are me

The impossible is always possible
If we try
If we imagine
If we forever dream like children

Ride A White Swan

T. Rex

Ride it on out like a bird in the sky ways
Ride it on out like you were a bird
Fly it all out like an eagle in a sunbeam
Ride it on out like you were a bird

Wear a tall hat like a druid in the old days
Wear a tall hat and a tatooed gown
Ride a white swan like the people of the Beltane
Wear your hair long, babe you can’t go wrong

Catch a bright star and a place it on your fore-head
Say a few spells and baby, there you go
Take a black cat and sit it on your shoulder
And in the morning you’ll know all you know, oh

Wear a tall hat like a druid in the old days
Wear a tall hat and a tatooed gown
Ride a white swan like the people of the Beltane
Wear your hair long, babe you can’t go wrong

Spurs 3 Aston Villa 1

There will be no ‘August curse’ for Kane this year and the England captain looks sharp after being afforded the luxury of a week or two without football this summer. “I think he spent a nice holiday, you saw it on Instagram,” said Mauricio Pochettino. But the impact Eriksen had may nag at the Argentinian manager until the transfer window closes in Europe at the beginning of September.

It was a good way to begin a Premier League season, for the supporters at least. At the still gleaming White Hart Lane 60,000 were treated to a thrilling comeback victory by the hosts and a brave oh-so-nearly performance from the visitors. These early hours of a long campaign also begged questions of both these sides, however, and time will show just how telling they are.

Tottenham-vs-Aston-Villa-06totavl1008-01167228658.jpg.0

Villa opened the scoring in the ninth minute, John McGinn’s confidently taken goal typifying a first-half performance in which Dean Smith’s side out-thought their opponents and matched them physically. The second period brought a shift in both momentum and personnel, with Christian Eriksen’s introduction just past the hour changing the match. Tanguy Ndombele scored a fine equaliser on his debut before a brace in the final five minutes from Harry Kane tied up three points that were ultimately well deserved.
Spurs, it sometimes seems, have spent the past 18 months constantly plugging gaps, always one or two players short. After a summer of substantial recruitment – Ndombele being joined by Giovanni Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon – his options have finally been replenished and new alternatives are possible.
With Eriksen inserted between Ndombele and Moussa Sissoko the Dane found freedom he rarely enjoyed last season and he used it to decisive effect. But Eriksen has said he would like to leave the club if he can find the right move, ending a possibly promising combination before it had really begun.
Pochettino may feel galled at the prospect of losing his playmaker at this juncture but he is not one to acknowledge disappointment and rejected the common assessment that Eriksen had been a game changer. “I do not agree,” he said. “I agree that in the first half we were a little predictable, we never found the best way to play and break down [Villa] quickly. In the second half we played really well.
“Of course when Christian came on to the pitch he was fresh and he’s a top player so he helped the team to win. That is the outcome when you have a player who maybe cannot play 90 minutes but has real quality,” the manager said.

2305process0totavl1008-0
In another noteworthy selection choice Jan Vertonghen, who like Eriksen has only a year remaining on his contract, was left out of the squad entirely.
Villa will also have come away considering frustrated possibilities. Their goal came early and was not really a surprise. Spurs dominated possession in the early stages but McGinn had been looking to take advantage of any turnover of possession. As soon as Villa won the ball, he was making runs off the back of Tottenham’s midfield.

7totavl1008-0Tottenham-3-1-Aston-Villa4188
He tried it once, he tried it twice and then, in the seventh minute, Tyrone Mings found him running beyond with a raking 60-yard pass. Danny Rose tried to chase McGinn down but the Scot sent the defender to the floor and then finished promptly past Hugo Lloris at his far post.
Villa gained confidence from that goal and held their own in the first half. They then fell away badly in the second, unable to hold possession and dwelling on the ball when they had it. Jack Grealish was robbed on the edge of his own box in the build-up to Harry Kane’s first goal and Sissoko both seized the ball and drove 30 yards through the centre of the pitch on the way to setting up Kane’s clinical second. Dean Smith acknowledged his team had been worn out by the end.
