Thanks for popping in. Did you watch the rugby this morning? What a game! You had to see the English team come out of the starting blocks. It was unbelievable. They were 7 points up on New Zealand 90 seconds in! I was jumping round the living room like a nutter! Did my throat in screaming at the telly, too! What a work out! Made all the sweeter by the fact that our Mark was in the stadium and was texting his old Mum back home too! What a result. What a game.
The Grays do like a game of rugby, I must admit. My brother Steve played for the Old Anchorians 1st team for many years, and our Mark is a big rugby player. Big being the operative word! U.S. College Champion, and plays for the Olympic Club 1st team in San Francisco nowadays. They won a 10-a-side tournament in Tokyo last week, too. Yep. Travelled with their full kit! That’s what I call dedication! Sent me this pic from the stadium after the game….
He is cheering Maro Itoje! Man of the Match. What a player! Camden lad. I can’t tell you how excited Mark was to get top spec tickets for this game last week. Happy boy. I love his passion for the game. It’s infectious. Let me find the pictures of him at the quarter finals stadium last week. Hang on….
Now England are through to next week’s final. Can Wales beat South Africa in the Semi final tomorrow? Now wouldn’t that be a game and a half! England V Wales in the World Cup Final! And we’ll be at the NEC next Saturday. Ah well. Work’s work.
Teamwork certainly made the dream work for these boys today.
So I’ve come upstairs to chat to you, do a modest downtime exercise for this excited head, and make a little tribute card for Team England. No explanation required….
Back to reality. Housework and leaves. But with a real spring in my step.
Love & Hugs,
