It was so totally, brilliantly, amazingly, wonderful to have him home.
Bearing in mind we were all still at work and Cub was permanently running his SF business from his lap top in our lounge, we actually had a lovely week.
Including a quick schneaky peep at the baby elephants of Chester Zoo.
They were all outside in the sun and were very active, giving Hari and Bala Hi Way a nudge and a shove here and there and having fun with the logs. Baby elephants' trunks are just so cute.
We had some of Poppy Beckett's prize winning marmalade which tastes AMAZING!
I can see why it won Silver Medal in the Artisan Maker World's Original Marmalade Awards
Sheffield Utd were playing away at Prenton Park on Good Friday so we nipped up the M53 to watch the game. I was just keeping my eye on ex Cov City's Michael Doyle, who, it has to be said, had a good game for the Blades. Tranmere were so poor we all wondered how they could possibly be so far up the Division One table.
A deflection resulting in an own goal was the only goal of the game, but Sheffield Utd were much the better side being organised and using the width of the pitch. The pitch though! The pitch was bare and bobbly and totally unpredictable- even these players were struggling at times.
It was one-nil at half time...
...and the bovril flowed.
ONE - NIL! Husband was happy.
(Meanwhile THE SKY BLUES were battering the mighty Doncaster at the Ricoh, showing our absolute resilience and solidarity after the TEN POINT DEDUCTION OH EM GEEEEE)
Although CUB resisted a pint of Piffle in the Stammy and Pizza was also banned due to Lent
a lovely week which included
Two spinning classes
Two of Mumster's epic stews
A Stamford Bridge FishnChips
English BACON BUTTIES
Two adorable baby elephants
A League One football match
A HASTY trip to Manchester
and several midnight phonecalls to the legend...Dave Langer.
It was just a shame that his journey home was so horrendous. A SIX HOUR delay sitting on a plane on the Heathrow tarmac is not ideal.
