Change of Plan

Valentines Day involved a HUGE change of plan.

The meal we had on Friday night instead of Saturday, my favourite Garlic Kievs and rice with salad (so much for Hubby panicking about his rash promise to rustle up the meal of my dreams, he had forgotton that I am a girl of simple tastes), drunk with the lovely wine that hubby had chosen.

And then on Saturday we set of for Cardiff, to see the Rugby. Hubby had a chance of two tickets from a guy at work and he just couldn't refuse, he did ring to check that I wouldn't mind, lovely thoughtful man, how could I say no!

I had never been to a rugby match before and the atmosphere at the Millennium Stadium was electric, the singing reverberating around the arena.....fantastic. The rugby wasn't too bad either! Then we walked back to Cardiff Bay and went for a meal. The night was rounded off with Magners (our favourite) in our hotel room. Not a bad Valentines date, spontaneous seems to be our middle name....we do it SO well.

Then on Sunday we set off for home, stopping on the way to buy a heavy duty garden shredder. We can put it off no more the orchard needs to be cleared of its six foot weeds, and the trees need to move from their temporary buckets into their very own space.

A small selection of our trees in buckets (yes I know......they look like sticks).

Back to life...back to reality!
