Thailand and a Sporting weekend

This week saw Mary and Steve jet off to Thailand for a well deserved holiday, they flew from Larnaca to Bankok via Abu Dhabi...more stories on this to come...I'm sure !

Then the Sporting weekend began, first up Wales travelled to Fortress Twickenham to take on England, in an exciting encounter Wales came away victorious by 19 points to 12 and by doing so won the Triple crown.

I personally enjoyed the Eddie Butler/Brian Moore commentating "neutrality" in the box. Absolute classic - Wales go 12-6 down and Moore crows/gleefully comments as Swing Low reverberates around Twickenham ......"Let's see what this Welsh side have got now then?"..............

Umm.............. that'll be 13 unanswered points and a triple crown in the away dressing room then Brian....Priceless.

On Sunday we popped down to our local pub to watch our old team Cardiff City take on Liverpool in the Carling cup final at Wembley. The Bluebirds put in a great display and  scored an equaliser with two minutes of extra time left to play that felt like a winner, but it was not to be our day as Liverpool won the penalty shoot out.
