… then so it is time for our annual update.

Last year I said you need to read this blog for updates but then got totally sidetracked in not providing many – my last post How To Find Me goes some way to explaining the why but in reality events that happened I just forgot to post here.

So what did happen in 2011?

Kathryn and I hit the 25years of marriage milestone mark and have yet to celebrate it – we really wanted to do a cruise but money and time prevent that. Instead (and I can say this here because Kathryn never reads this site) we have a weekend away next year, sans children, at posh hotel & spa in West Wales. It’s one of the little pressies she’s getting this Christmas.

We did allow myself (you’ll understand why presently) a shiny new DSLR plus bits as our present to ourselves – not that Kathryn has done any more than just look at it yet.

I was also conned into creating a school calendar for Coel’s school with it and I’m led to believe it has been the schools single best fund raiser to date. Not bad for an amateur snapper.

I can’t wait and although I’m at one end of the pitch I’ve been a couple of times to know that the view will still be good. I’ll just have to hope that the majority of the action is at my end for the half when Wales are attacking it ….

What has stunned me though is the cost of the ticket. I’d love to go to every Wales home game but due to a number of reasons which include: timing and lack of ticket availability I now have to add cost as a major factor. If I had to purchase this ticket it would have set me back a cool £58.

Now I love my rugby, but that is simply ludicrous.
