Semi-final day on the quiz and there was no way I was going to lose out at this point. Arrived in plenty of time again and set about studying while I waited. Bought some terribly clever books and was learning lots.
Horseface came in followed by Codger (last minute as always - presumed he set off last night but was so slow). Pressure was evident for all of us. Codger had 8 points, Horseface had 10 and I had 9. It was close.
The questions came and I answered confidently. Looking around everyone was highly focused. Thought at one point Codger had stopped breathing.
The results came in. Horseface got the first 4 questions right, securing her place in the final. It came down to the last question for Codger and I, and I got it! Codger is history!
Can barely concentrate to work and waiting for other half to come home to share the big news!
