Even though the Lions lost I managed to get through the day without knowing the score. Yippee.
The naming ceremony was a great occasion.
The Lions were poor in the set piece and no ball for the backs to use – big improvement needed for next week – it’s going to be a big Saturday!
Biggest challenge for today is to try and avoid the British Lions v Australia, second test, score. We are at a naming ceremony when the match is on so will have to record and watch later. Not going to be easy as the party after the ceremony is in a pub! Wish me luck and if you know my please do not email or text me the score!
What has happened to Spring/Summer. Having celebrated the longest day last Friday, the weather seems to have returned to autumn instead of summer, high winds, dark clouds and more than the odd drop of rain.
It is no wonder people enjoy travelling overseas to catch some sun but is the fact that we all fly so much the reason for such inconsistent climate changes?
It has been a very busy but extremely productive year at school. Having just completed the build/renovation of the new Infant and Nursery Block (The Lodge), work is now under way on renovating the old nursery, converting it into the new Sixth Form Centre, due to open at the end of August.
As soon as school breaks up, demolition of the present Infant building will take place, following which the building of a new 10 classroom building will commence, with completion in August 2014.
I am really looking forward to my two week holiday in July!
Wow, the first Lions test was a little too close for comfort but with a Lions win 23 points to 21, we will take the victory into the second test, next Saturday. Unfortunately, I will not be able to see the second test live, so please no one send me texts or emails of the score next Saturday. Will probably watch it Saturday evening.
Today, Sunday, at 6pm Wales under 20’s play their English counterparts, in France, in the Junior Rugby World Cup Final – Come on Wales!
Was it really worth getting up so early this morning to watch Wales against Japan? No, Wales didn’t play badly but they were second best especially after so many changes being made early in the second half. The result was a loss to Wales by 23 points to 8. The first time Japan have beaten a top 10 ranked team. Why was this a full capped tour?
The second game of the day, Lions v Waratahs, was much better. A good match and another Lions win 47 points to 17. Hope Jamie Roberts is ok for the first test next Saturday. Some excellent individual performances. Can’t wait for the first test.
Plan for the rest of the day – chill out and do nothing!
