A quiet Friday

Not much happening today. Charlie & Robyn have returned to Napier. So we have spent the day catching up with washing and ironing you know that sort of mundane stuff. But come the evening we're off to the Sheraton on the Park hotel for a question & answer session with some Lions Legends. There's a free 2 hour bar and 1 hour of canapes Yippee!!!

We had a walk out to Paddy's Market. We think it's been a long time since Paddy was there as it's full of Chinese!

At the Sheraton a great line up greeted us, Paul Wallace(Ireland) Craig Chalmers (Scotland) the great David Campesse (Australia) and finally that cheeky Will Greenwood(England).

 It was a great night with some funny stories recanted. 

I even had my photo taken with the great Simon Shaw who was still playing for England aged 40! He's a giant of a man, I only reached his arm pits!! He was so polite and patient with the fans who wanted photos.

The mood amongst the Lions fans was one of apprehension, could we do it or would we fall at the last fence? Lots of debate about the shock of dropping Brian O'Driscoll. Tomorrow will tell.
