I can't believe how stupid I have been. I have just realised that I will be on a train on the night of the World Cup finals. When the schedule said 12th July, I didn't read the fine print (12 midnight=11th night). So I booked for the 11th.
This means I will (very likely) miss watching Germany pick up the cup this year (there's my prediction for you. No, I'm not channeling Paul, but I wish he were mine).
