I have a question, which I have been thinking about the last 50 years. I know, that the word "blood" is prononcued "blaad" and I know. that "roof" is prononcued "ruuf", boot like "buut" , tool like "tuul". They all have 2 oo, which gives "UU", but why is blood then "blaad" and not "bluud".? Do you understand me. :)

Best regards
