Away Days

Today we spent the day in Windsor, Eaton, Brooklands Museum and then across to Mercedes World. Surprisingly, the weather has been both dry and sunny!

We had an early dinner at the Duke of Edinburgh pub in Woodside and now having returned to our hotel it is time to visit the bar for one or two Scottish Waters, especially as they have quite a selection of malts.


Wales v France

What a great night we had last Friday. Not only did Wales get back to winning ways, giving them hope of a third consecutive Championship but thanks to our Friends, Tony and Jacqui who hosted us for the night, the social side of the evening was outstanding too.

Shame the Bluebirds were unable to win or prevent an embarrassing defeat, 4 nil to Hull KR. It is going to be an enormous uphill battle to get out of the relegation zone now.

Just arrived at the MacDonald Berystede Hotel and Spar in Ascot, for a few days of R&R. Time to check out the bar!

A Blue day in Cardiff

Another Saturday gone and another bad day for sport in the Capital.

The Bluebirds, although having most of the possession, just could not seem to score enough goals and Wigan got the two breaks they needed, in the first half, to come out on top at the end of the match.

The Blues battled well throughout but I cannot understand why, after 60 minutes and still in a tight contest, we bring our star flanker Sam Warburton off. Was it under the orders of the WRU just to play Sam for 60 mins or was he injured? Again, the young guns were out played in the closing stages.

Never mind, at least the pre match drinks and after match meal with our good friends were great.

It’s the French and back to the Six Nations next Friday.

Theatre time

Just enjoyed a great night at the Theatre with our good friends Tony and Jacqui. ‘The play that goes wrong’ was brilliant and had us in stitches from the start to finish. Totally recommend it to anyone and everyone as a must see.

Tomorrow is both a FA Cup tie for the Bluebirds against Wigan and a league match for the Blues against Glasgow. Both games kick off at separate times with a 3 1/2 hour time difference, so I can go to both.

Come on the Blues and Bluebirds, two home victories tomorrow. 🙂

Wales v Ireland

Where were Wales today? Looked like a team with individuals playing outside Wales. Very poor performance and no plan B.

We have got to find a 9 who is quicker getting the ball out and knows how to keep his mouth shut. Surprised Phillips and O’Mahoney were not yellow carded for bipping at the referee.

Well done Ireland.

Sport on Saturday

Massive afternoon of sport. Wales take on Ireland in Dublin and the Bluebirds take on Swansea at Swansea – I predict a win for Wales and for Bluebirds. Not so confident about the third match of the day, this evening, when the Blues take on Munster in Ireland.

Good luck to Wales, the Bluebirds and the Blues.
