Me On Monday

It was a rugby weekend. There's no other way to put it. A really? already? The Six Nations Competition starts today weekend. A put our feet up in front of the television weekend. A trip to the Sports Shop to look for birthday presents weekend.



An are you sure you're serious about Girls' Rugby? weekend. Also, then, an if you suggest  wearing my brother's old boots one more time, I'm going on strike weekend. Which of course means a back to the sports shop day next weekend. 

And today? On Monday? I'm pulling out an old photo and remembering what rugby weekends once looked like here, almost twenty years ago to the day, when I came downstairs after a nap and discovered my tiny new baby wrapped in a very large shirt. Wouldn't even look at him now, of course. But you knew that.

Have a good week!

Last Monday Helena, Miriam, Abi, Ruth, Liz, Alison, Karen, Deb, Sandra and Ladkyis all gave us a wave. Go on, give 'em a wave back..

Six Nations ... bring it on!
Adorable photo of TTO, which means that J is forgiven for getting a wee bit carried away in his patriotism!

Maggie said...

Love the baby photo. Yes we too have girl rugby. So elegant! She comes home with interesting bruises and yes had to have new boots!

It was a good weekend for English rugby in that tournament!
Love that baby photo. He wore his shirt well!
I've joined in again this week too, and my post is son related as well.

Sounds like it was a very enjoyable and relaxing weekend. Those are the best ones.

Jane said...

a good way to spend the weekend, love that photo!

KraftyKaren said...

sounds like a lovely weekend - I had completely forgotten about the rugby. What a cute photo of your son. I have waved back to you - enjoy the rest of your week!!

Love the photo...less the rugby!

Beautiful, Sian......love the reminiscence with the photo (and what a resourceful Dad: I assume he was so glued to the rugby, he couldn't get up and find a baby blanket??!! That's a true rugby fan for you! - my Dad was the same - nothing would move him when the rugby was on!)

Ladkyis said...

good picture! would it be useful for blackmail with girlfriends though?

Mr M and youngest son watched the rugby. Wales lost so there was a post mortem and much muttering. Youngest son being back home with his momma because the not even a year old marriage has fallen apart......... haven't asked for details

Louise said...

Now that's my kind of weekend Sian. You know we all love a little rugby here. I did gasp when i read girl rugby.....I don't mind watching it, but i wouldn't want to play it!! x

Jo said...

It sounds like you had a good weekend with a lovely memory thrown in :)

Alison said...

Love the pics...I don't 'd' rugby though! Xx

Fiona@Staring at the Sea said...

Oh so cute! A rugby weekend in our house too and good results for both of us. Finally managed to wave back after a somewhat fraught day!

Lizzy Hill said...

LOL. World wide phenomenon this rugby, then? DH watched the Sevens all weekend. I LOOOVE it. Means I get to scrap uninterrupted!!!!! The baby in green pic is a classic!!!!!

Melissa said...

What a cute baby picture! It was a beautiful sunshiny weekend here, so we headed to an outdoor flea market, then a visit with my parents, and even a nice exercise walk!

Deb @ PaperTurtle said...

Super cute Monday post today, Sian. I just love the baby photo you included! ♥

Karen said...

I have to admit I've never seen a rugby match, and I know next to nothing about it. I do know, though, that that is one adorable baby photo!

Karen said...

I prefer rugby to football, if I have to watch anything. I had a friend who played woman's rugby at uni and traveled all over the world playing.

Jennie Hart said...

What a lovely memory shot to contrast. He looks very very tiny!

Have a great week :-)

alexa said...

Lovely photo :) and with weeks of the Six Nations ahead, you will be in for a series of rugby-filled weekends between now and Easter! My Dad is a fan too.

Lea Lacoste said...

mostly been watching ski lately but will confess to have enjoyed those rugbymen a bit ;)

Maria Ontiveros said...

Although we're very sporty, rugby is one gem we've never played. Looks like a very fun weekend

Sandra said...

What a lovely photo ... Gotta give that an aawwww.

Yup Rugby on here too x

Miriam said...

What a wonderful photo of your boy! Waving on Wednesday.

Eileen T said...

As everyone else has said, that's a gorgeous baby photo. I missed the rugby completely, I didn't switch the TV on at all this weekend.

I've joined in with you today - http://in-my-playroom.blogspot.co.uk/2015/02/me-on-monday.html

You may not be amazed to discover I wasn't even aware of the rugby.

But a close friend has similar photos of her small baby in All Black suits. They went to all the matches with him... he was very well travelled before his first birthday!

Rachel B said...

So cute! I don't do sports so wasn't aware of it but I love how 'Me on a Monday' captures all of these moments :)

Gail said...

What an adorable picture of your son and I had to laugh at the not quite small one's comment about the boots.
