End of World Cup dream and sunbathing

On Saturday we had a few friends round to watch England play Portugal in the Quarter Final of the World Cup. Sadly England got knocked out on penalties, but the most contravertial part of the match was when Wayne Rooney (above) was sent off for stamping on another player in a rather sensitive area! David Beckham has said he will stand down as Captain and it was Sven's last match as Manager, so it will be all change for the next England match....

We rounded off watching the football in true English style, with one of Daniel's monster curries, plus a bit of a dance-off between Magnus and Daniel! (Why do all our parties end with cheesy dancing?!)

Yesterday we cycled 15 km to the coast and spent the day sunbathing at Fiskebäck.

We thought no one else would have the same idea as us, but we were proved wrong when we cycled up and realised half of Gothenburg was there too!

A lot of Swedes were out swimming in the sea, but it was a bit cold for us - maybe next time!

Sounds like you and your friends always have fun at your parties. I am sure I could have learned some good dance moves...

Your pictures are beautiful.
