Back to Blogging.. for now

Lets be honest, I’m not sure how this little blogging stint will last, I tend to go in cycles of blogging where I build up a small audience, get bored and delete everything and start again.

The day of the World Club Challenge had arrived. I’d been excited about this for months, tickets were booked and I’d upgraded Grandad and I to some prematch VIP hospitality with a three course meal. Dinner started at 4:00pm so at 3:30pm Grandad and I had our shirts on, the car was packed and we bound towards the door, my hand was on the handle when my phone buzzed.. iMessage from Heather Hodgson : Can you come upstairs please I trotted up the stairs…
