I saw a very funny cartoon last week. It showed a woman, sitting on the couch, crying. Her husband was comforting her by saying: "Don't cry, it's just a film".

England had a young team and they had a good chance of winning the World Cup.

We haven't seen that for ages, as the fight for an agreement on Brexit continues, and it was great.
