Good morning from sunny Dublin!
Makes a nice change from wet and windy [insert location in South-West England].
I’ve flown here today for a few hours and will make the most of some quality time with dear family friends. The thing about Europe is that everywhere is fairly accessible. The issue is that you think you can therefore catch up with people anytime because it’s so easy. And then you remember you’re in an Anniversary season and you’re not home a whole lot and, when you are, the need to rest and recuperate is at an all-time high!
So today, quite by chance, I find myself in a city that absolutely enveloped anyone who claimed to support the All Blacks a fortnight ago! I’m thinking it’s best to not mention the game. I’m not confident though and no doubt it’ll come up in conversation!
Two nights ago we had the most wonderful finish to our UK and European season, performing – as you’ll no doubt have seen from the recent blogs – in the Chapel at King’s College. It doesn’t matter how many times you’re seen it or been inside, it’s still incredibly special to stand inside and, whilst the public haven’t been let in, look around and soak it up. What an absolutely stunning building! It was a fitting farewell for Chris and Tim on UK soil, too, made extra special by all the families and friends in attendance.
So, it’s just a few days to go before we embark on the final tour and I’m looking forward to seeing close friends on that side of the pond.
Bye for now!
