"rugby players and other yummy things"
even though we all knew we were going to get cold and wet, everyone here was very excited about our family outing to the rugby. our team is called the 'hurricanes'. (click there if you're REALLY curious!) wellington is also known as the 'windy city' (i know - like chicago right!!!) so we're always the butt of wind and wind-related jokes.
so we got a little (lot) wet, wet, wet
i can't feel my fingers.... i can't feel my toes...
rain is all around us (that's because the stadium is round and the rain, rather than coming down, tends to SWIRL, so undercover seats aren't really undercover); which make me glad i didn't pay an extra $16 per TICKET for said undercover seats.
it's everywhere we go, except for here, which is the newest cupcake store in town. i'll get to that later. back to the rugby. that guy with the blue ring around him just scored a try. the number 14 on his back means he's a WINGER - he flys along the outside and takes the ball at a run, before sliding in for a spectacular score (well, that's how it's MEANT to work).
totally worth it though - check that baby out. it's gone now of course. i ate it. i DID make it last though. i calculated just over $1.05 per bite for mine, which is why i won't be letting DH gob a hole in one (which is what he would TOTALLY do).
in other news, the rain didn't stop, necessitating the cancellation of the first games of winter netball. i was actually a tad disappointed, but then i got to crawl back into bed, snuggle down and listen to the rain, before leisurely rising to a cooked breakfast (care of DH) of scrambled eggs, hash browns, bacon and fresh hot coffee - oh yeah -he's a keeper!!!
