Day Tripper

Armed with Banana Cake, Betty Crocker's Icing (as usual I ran out of time to put the icing on the cake) and a SatNav, a friend and I went on a road trip to meet a fellow Kiwi, and cheer the All Blacks to victory against the Scots.


Although our usual trio was missing our third member, we met a beautiful black Lab, enjoyed the quiet beauty of the English countryside, kinda of ran into Stonehenge, drove through someone's farm, almost forded a ford and generally wreaked havoc in the English countryside.

Er, where has the City gone?
Such a great view (that is when Princes aren't around...)


After a gorgeous lunch, with the best Roast Potatoes ever,


...we settled in for the game. There were some smashing tries, some Lomu-esque running and some hairy All Blacks (quite a few of them getting into the Movember spirit).



Thankfully my (Edmonds) Banana Cake when down pretty well,



Accompanied with our lovely hosts' homemade scones (I'm just sad we were too full from lunch to enjoy them fully)


Then sadly we were homeward bound, back to the big smoke.



I'm a day tripper, a one one-way ticket yeah...
