Will not be blogging again til Sunday night. Life has been a bit difficult for us of late, and tomorrow we have arranged to have a day away from our problems. In the morning I will be attending our constituency party AGM in Trefeglwys, and then......... well we have FOUR debenture tickets for the match. So its Me, Mrs D, No 3 son Tim, and Adrienne, his Irish wife off down to the Millennium Stadium. I have to say that Warren Gatland's comments about the relationship between the Welsh and Irish teams was the most ill judged comment he has made since taking over the Wales job. He doesn't say much, and it would have been better if he'd stuck to his usual policy. For me, its always a case of 'if Wales can't win, then let it be the Irish'. And then its a quick getaway from Cardiff to Fishmore Hall, near Ludlow, which serves dinner til 9.30, and is a terrific place to unwind. So it will be Sunday night before I report on Wales 25-15 victory. I know that's 3 points short, but I'll be satisfied happy with the victory. Since Gatland made his stupid comments, I will not be too upset if the Irish take the championship.
