Good Luck EnglandThe Rugby World Cup starts today! And for the first time in years I can confidently say that I can watch whichever matches I want, wife permitting of course.

In previous years I have had to miss a lot of the matches due to work commitments. Now I have the ability to control when I work I can rearrange my day if I want. This allows me to keep working, and hence earning some money, but gives me the freedom to choose when to do it. I haven’t really had any real tangible use for this new found freedom until now…

Obviously I want to watch all of the England matches and the timing of all the groups games are quite nice this time round anyway, all being on weekend mornings and nothing ridiculously early. But to get really into the tournament there are lots of other matches that deserve to be watched, some of which are on during the week when I would normally be working.

In the past I have tried recording matches but then never seem to get around to watching them. Once the actual match has actually happened you tend to find out the score by accident and then the excitement wanes…

Another option would have been to take time off but this seems like an unnecessary waste of some of very restricted number of days you can take, especially for a not so important match…

At last I have another option. I can watch the match and then simply change my hours accordingly. So if you need to get in touch over the next few weeks just bear in mind I might be a bit slow to respond due to other commitments 😉

Fingers crossed for England. Let’s hope they can repeat the success of 2003…

I can’t wait to see how things turn out…

COME ON ENGLAND…
