If you don't like football look away.

25th July thanks to brilliant Mr H we had the opportunity to see Great Britian V New Zealand at Millennium Stadium Cardiff to watch the first official Olympic Games Women's  football match.

Thanks to British Rail we made use of our family rail card and took the train which I love.  You get to see the countryside roll by with no stress.  It was a lovely journey through Forest Dean stopping at Lydney and on to Chepstow, Newport and ending in South Wales at Cardiff.

The town centre was free of all vehicles which was brilliant as a member of the public, not so good for car drivers or if you wanted to catch the bus as the station was shut!

We were truly blessed with beautiful weather to the point of needing sun cream on every couple of hours.

Now I have to confess I do not follow "a team" and am not a regular to watch football anymore than Master H, although he loves to play, or Mrs B.  However to say we got stuck in on the supporting front would be an understatement! There was alot of "oh's and ah's, but in the second half a MASSIVE cheer erupted around the stadium as Great Britain scored.  The atmosphere was immense such a great moment.

So here is my extensive montage of pictures that I want to share and treasure as an incredible memory with my truly beautiful family.


  1. What a fab day out:) And nice to see Women's football getting some air time too.

  2. I don't care for football generally but am more than happy to make an exception if the situation deserves it. What a great day of memories for you all, thank you for sharing your great photos.
