Have had a full sporting calendar today just like Saturdays' back home. Went to watch Jade (Nick's niece) play hockey first thing and then went to watch Ryan play rugby (the standard of rugby at under 8s is unbelievable) you can see why the New Zealand team are the best in the world. Went out cycling when we got back and then had a barbeque with Chris and Elaine's friends and neighbors which was great. Plenty of laughing, alcohol and drinking games and two extra welsh people it felt like being at home although there was no singing at the end of the night (we are going to have to work on that!) I did have to leave proceedings early as the dog dropped a bone on my feet (now this was not any old bone I reckon it was a thigh bone from a diplodocus or a New Zealand prop!) and as my feet were also very cold the pain was unbelievable. So I am now sporting some lovely bone shape bruises across my toes!
