It has been rather a lazy weekend, but I did get some parsley planted and some of my pots weeded.
Last evening, we had a thunderstorm bearing down on us, but at the last moment it veered away – we heard lots of thunder, saw several lightning flashes, but never had any rain.

The cats were not disturbed by the storm, nor have they been worried by all the fireworks going off each evening. I think they are getting older and it is all a bit of a “ho-hum-here-we-go-again” for them.

This morning we were up early to watch Wales play rugby against South Africa. It was such a good game, and I felt sorry for Wales when a spectator raced onto the field and prevented them from scoring.
Soon afterwards, we watched a replay of the All Blacks against Italy. That was not so inspiring, but we still managed to win convincingly.
It was the referee I felt sorry for this time, when he was hit in the face with the ball during play. It must have hurt, but he continued on doing his job.
|Final Score: New Zealand 47 and Italy 9|
Then, this afternoon, it was time for another replay. This time France playing Argentina in Paris.
This was a really intense game, with both sides evenly matched. The game was fast, and a bit frenetic at times – a couple of yellow cards were issued when all the testosterone on the field got a bit out of hand!
|Final Score: France 29 and Argentina 20|
Today was a great day if you are a rugby fan!
Tomorrow I will have to knuckle under again and get back to doing some housework and cooking 😊
