On Saturday Mr Clicky, Master Clicky and I went to Kingsholm the home of Gloucester Rugby to watch an Autumn International. Sadly not England ~ too expensive ~ but Tonga v USA.
The kick-off was at 4.45pm so it was just getting dark as we arrived.
As we were at Kingsholm we stood in 'The Shed' ~ the bit with the sloping roof, nothing fancy(!) for the princely sum of £5.00 for Mr Clicky and Me and £1.00 for Master Clicky. The Shed is a boisterous and noisy place and lots of fun helped along by the odd pint (not for me I was driving.)
I've never been to an international before; after the team's national anthems were played Tonga did their Haka (war dance) which is called the Sipi Hau. I'm not sure if USA was unsettled by it but they certainly made a lot of noise.
Kingsholm is great because you are really close to the action.
Three of the players from Tonga are in the Gloucester team so Tonga got most of the support. The atmosphere was great, both and teams played well but Tonga was a bit faster where it mattered, winning 40 -12.
We had a brilliant time.
I've been buying magazines. I always buy Ideal Home this time of year as I do like a Christmas Magazine and Ideal Home has a free calendar.
Whilst I was in the magazine section I saw a Homemaker
with a Trio of Trees kit to make. This came with printed fabric, stuffing, cotton reels ~ for stands and cotton thread.
I also got a Simply Homemade
which had the Twelve Days of Christmas printed fabric decorations.
Now, sewing isn't really my thing, but I think even I should be able to knock these up.
I'll keep you posted on my progress!
That's me for now, posting on a Monday for a change, whatever next?
Hope you have a good week, see you soon..........Clicky Needles.
