A Welsh loss: 15th-21st October

Wales got through to the Rugby World Cup semi-finals. Yes, I shall repeat that. Wales got through to the Rugby World Cup semi-finals.  I am not a rugby fanatic, but I live with one. A Welsh one. So this is big (and surprising) news indeed.  There was an air of excitement and anticipation as we all woke up on Saturday morning, Mrs Doubtfire having been awake with nerves since the early hours.

By 8am the house was filled with red, anxious,Celtic bodies, all ready for the prematch build up. By 9am Maths Geek and The Naughty Knight were breakfasted and thrilled to hear they could watch whatever movie they fancied.  Do anything, in fact, as long as they let us watch The Match.  Princess Baby was fed and swaddled in bed and I had cooked up a special Welsh breakfast for the fans.  

Bubble and Leek. Welsh Daffodils (a circular mound of scrambled egg, lovingly surrounded with nachos to make the petals), with Dragons' tongues (AKA bacon).  I have to admit that I was rather impressed by my kitchen goddess skills.  My reward?  "No-one wants this nouveux cuisine stuff," grumbled Mrs Doubtfire as he took over and slopped the scrambled eggs all haphazard onto his plate.  I learned that rugby fanatics are just that. Next time I shall stick to the game, leave my artistic flair behind me and serve up a traditional fried breakfast. Bubble and squeak, scrambled eggs and bacon.  But what ever you call it, it cannot make up for the tragic Welsh loss.
