Cardiff's Cup final

The big day has arrived, our local team, Cardiff City is playing in the FA Cup final against Portsmouth, being played at Wembley Stadium in London.

Our Cup Final day

Lee and I jumped on a bus into Cardiff , stopped off for a full brekkie and then headed towards Cardiff Bay to meet up with the rest of the gang. We bumped into a hord of young girls who were dressed in St. Trinians schoolgirl outfits on a Hen day out, the noise they made on the bus had to be heard to believed.

We made it down to the Packet pub and settled in to watch the game, the Cardiff team played well, held their own against Pompey and at times outplayed them, but it was not to be our day and went down to a 0-1 defeat.

Still, we managed to drown our sorrow with a few more pints of Brains beer and a good craic with the rest of the City Fans. We finished off our day with visit to a Mexican restaurant for some well needed Spicey food.

.Well done Bluebirds, it was well worth the trip home from Cyprus.
