Fairy Fun in the Sun

So the sunshine continued as we headed to Manchester ( sun in Manchester – there’s a novelty!!) for the second day of the Magic Weekend. Not a magician in sight, though we could have done with one. Seven super league games in one weekend and guess whose team was the worst??? Yep, the not-so-mighty Wakefield Trinity let us down again, you don’t mind loosing if they put the effort in but it’s a tad annoying when they don’t.
Still there was plenty to take our mind off the crap rugby, life- size crayons, super heroes, bears, nuns, men in pants ( very tight pants -yuk!) and a bunch of fairies. Alas, I knew one or two of the fairies, in fact I knew them all – I’ve got to say they made a lovely bunch, not their usual rugby league wear but they seem to be taking a liking to this dressing up malarkey- rumour is they’re going as traffic cones next week………..
A great weekend
Nearly the school holidays (again)
Bring it on!!

A Magic Weekend…………..

I wasn’t really sure how I’d feel this morning, I should have been in Scotland running the Edinburgh Marathon -alas it was not to be. I’ve remained hopeful all year that I would be able to run it, but come March it was becoming very apparent that it wasn’t going to happen. To be honest -looking at the rather warm conditions that today’s weather brought, I wasn’t that disappointed that I couldn’t do it. I’ve run marathons in the heat before and they’re a nightmare. You spend all Winter training hard in the hope of getting a PB only for the heat to get in the way -it’s happened to me twice in London, though I did get a PB -just not the one I wanted (us runners are never happy!) it is so annoying.

With the running out of the window, its been a rugby weekend. Seven games in the sunshine. Thankfully we opted not to go to Manchester, to say Wakefield were rubbish is an understatement. I would have been bloody annoyed if we’d forked out to watch that -I’ve seen U10’s play better rugby. So it’s been a rugby in the garden weekend courtesy of Sky Go. It shows how times have changed -I’ve known us carry the portable telly out into the garden in days gone by. Though why we called them portable I’ll never know -they weighed a ton! Still on the plus side if the aerial broke you could replace it with a wire coat hanger you can’t do that nowadays…….

Starting to get a tan
