6 Nations - Wales v Italy

Christmas has been and gone but Siân's present finally arrived in the shape of tickets to see Wales in Cardiff. 

As reported on the 6 Nations website: "Tries from Alex Cuthbert and Scott Williams saw Wales begin their pursuit of a record breaking third RBS 6 Nations title in a row with a hard fought 23-15 win over Italy at the Millennium Stadium"

(Unfortunately Wales could not maintain their performances away from home and Ireland were ultimately victorious in 2014.) 

Our weekend away included another stay at the Welsh Gatehouse near Chepstow. The facilities were wonderful, as before, although the loft was possibly too hot to ensure a restful night.

On the way home we stopped briefly at Evesham. Here, as throughout much of the West Country, the effects of flooding were apparent. Fortunately we, nor anyone close to us, has been affected and by March the situation was much improved.
