A busy week and supporting Ben
Thanks so much for all your lovely comments about the blog.
Last weekend, we enjoyed some family time when we took Aoife Belle to watch her first rugby game â€“ my husband Benâ€™s team Northampton was playing. Aoife was taken onto the pitch afterwards and she loved it.
Northampton has a dog mascot called Bernie â€“ who Aoife met. Every time Aoife sees a dog, she says â€˜woofâ€™, which is very sweet.
We watched the match from a box because the crowds would have been too much for Aoife. Normally, if I go to a game, I just watch from the stands like anyone else, but we stayed with the other rugby playersâ€™ wives, girlfriends and children in the box. It was chaos! There were so many children running around, it was like being in a crÃ¨che.
I know a few of the other wives and girlfriends quite well. I havenâ€™t been to that many games in the past year because of conflicting work schedules and the weather being quite bad. But the girls are all lovely.
It was also great to see Ben playing. He had three months off last year when he had to have ankle ligament damage, but he is back to his old self again. Northampton Saints beat Sale 47-7 and it was the last home game of the season, so it was a great day, very exciting.
