First the good news, the sun came up over Ornskoldsvik this morning, it's a beautiful day. Now the bad news. Scotland women against Italy in game six of the Le Gruyere European Curling Championships.
What can I say? It was a game of two halves, Scotland stole four shots over ends three four and five for a four shot lead. Game over? Don't you believe it. A three to Italy in the sixth cut the lead to one shot. However Scotland did go into the final end with a two shot lead but without the last stone.
Poor shotmaking meant Italy lay three shots when Kelly Wood came to play her last stone, she opted for a freeze, in truth there was no other option, her stone didn't quite freeze, there was enough room for Diana Gaspari of Italy to remove the Scottish stone and lie four, game over 9/7 to Italy.
Sweden have five wins, Germany, Italy and Switzerland four, Russia, Scotland and Denmark are on three wins.
Anette Norberg IS human, she lost 13/4 in six ends to Germany.
