Essex CC v Kent CC – Event 43

The joys of living in Chelmsford means I can go and watch Essex play cricket for a couple of hours at a time if that’s all I have available in my day. With plans to watch London Skolars in the afternoon I decided on watching the first session of the cricket. It’s lovely having a 10 minute trip to sport, […]

Kings of The North – Event 41

A Friday meeting I needed to attend at work means I was able to accept an invitation to go to Leicester for an unusual and exciting event. I had a leisurely morning – with a healthy breakfast (check my ‘lunch’ later!) before setting off for Leicester giving myself a good 3 hours to get there.     The journey was […]

Saracens v Leicester Tigers – Event 40

After the glamour of Paris it was back to Premiership Rugby and back to Allianz Park.  The season seems to be flying by and this was a key game. I’ve been ‘on holiday’ for the Easter period – I honestly have no idea how I manage to get myself organised, dressed and out the door for work in the mornings. […]

London Broncos v Batley Bulldogs – Event 39

Easter Monday means rugby league, if fixtures fall right, and this year they most certainly did!  Batley Bulldogs travelled to play London Broncos. Batley have a long and rich history, coming into being in the 1880’s;  they were one of the original 20 clubs to break away at the famous meeting in the George Hotel in Huddersfield. They play their […]

Racing Metro 92 v Saracens – Event 38

A tough European Champions Cup draw for Saracens was a heaven sent opportunity for me to combine 3 of my favourite things – My lovely daughter Alexandra, Paris and Rugby!  Perfect! When the dates were announced the whole Easter weekend was given as a possibility so I booked Eurostar to travel on Good Friday, returning on the Monday.  I did […]

London Skolars v Hemel Stags – Event 37

Having thoroughly enjoyed 2 days of cricket Good Friday brought a local derby between London Skolars and Hemel Stags. The weather was back to yuk having had a touch of Spring; Skolars are my closest rugby team round about 45 minutes away with a good run. That consist of the A12,M25, A406 with a smidgeon of A10 added in at […]

Essex CC v Surrey Day 3 – Event 36

My ideal week would involve watching all 3 days of the Essex v Surrey friendly, however a commitment to a photo shoot if you please, meant I had to miss Day 2.   Rather than sit and watch cricket in the horrendous wind I spent the day at Frinton and Walton dressed for summer having my photo taken along with […]

Essex CC v Surrey CC – Event 35

The cricket season is nearly here!!  If I’m honest this blog grew from my love of the game, I was literally brought up at the side of a cricket pitch, some of my earliest memories involve my Dad in whites playing the game on what always seemed to be bright summer days.     That of course won’t have been […]

Saracens v Harlequins – Event 34

With the 6 Nations and my gallivanting done it was time to return to Premiership Rugby and Saracens.  In what has become a tradition they faced their opponents Harlequins at Wembley. Having changed my mind all week about how I was going to travel car was the option when it came to the day.  In a bid to improve the […]

Scotland v Ireland – Event 33

A trip to Scotland for the final round of the Six Nations saw me finish as I’d started with My good friend Monica accompanying me.  I’d bought 2 tickets when planning my 5 games in 5 countries anticipating that she wouldn’t be able to resist a weekend in Bonnie Scotland. We both have family across the border which is more […]

Wales v Ireland – Event 30

Having spent a weekend watching live rugby league it was back to 6 Nations rugby; that meant a trip to Cardiff via Bristol for me.  I’d booked into an Airbnb in Cardiff Bay for 2 nights at a very reasonable £80.  What wasn’t so reasonable was that it was cancelled 2 days before my trip! I’m not one to stress, […]

London Broncos v Workington Town – Event 28

After watching one of my rugby league teams lose by just the 82 points I was very much looking forward to seeing London Broncos get a win.  Well, I was hoping that would be the case anyway!   Having had a taste of Spring on the Saturday, Sunday morning was glorious in Chelmsford!  I dressed accordingly and took Shirley (yes […]
