Rugby, rain and Jenny's little helper

What a wet miserable couple of days we have had. Both Friday and Saturday were wet, wet. wet. Robin didn't really care as he had the Rugby Test to look forward to on TV on Saturday evening, played between the mighty All Blacks and the touring team from Ireland. The game was held at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington, known to locals affectionately as the "Cake Tin". Pity the sportsmen (and the spectators) who were out in the most appalling conditions. The score was New Zealand 21 and Ireland 11.

Those who know us realize that Jenny is not really a sports lover so her time this weekend was spent working on 2 very special "Memory Quilts". Our grand-daughter Emma's boyfriend Geoffrey died in a boating mishap recently. Jenny has offered to make Memory Quilts for both Emma and Geoffrey's mother using his tee shirts, sweat shirts, even his school ball shirt, and whatever else was provided.

When all the pieces were laid out on the floor our Birman Muffy decided to help out and inspect the works in progress.
