Why ice hockey is like camping

Coventry Blaze take on Cardiff Devils

I went to my first ice hockey match the other night. Coventry Blaze were playing Cardiff Devils in the first leg of the Challenge Cup semi-finals.

Why is this important as part of a blog about camping?

Well yes, I know there aren’t too many parallels you can draw between ice hockey and camping, but the reason I’m writing about it is because it was something I had never done before.

‘Chocs’ away for Easter fun!

Ted and I can’t wait for the clocks to go forward at the end of this month… lighter evenings mean longer walks!

I’ve not been well over the winter and my very nice vet diagnosed me with hypothyroidism, which led to my fur falling out and left me feeling very lethargic. I am now told that my patchy coat makes me look like a Gloucester Old Spot pig!

M&TBird beachHowever, I shall take these remarks on the chin because the tablets the vet prescribed have given me a new lease of life - the maid and chauffeur seem very jealous of my boundless energy. So I’m now raring to go on our 2015 travels, and with Easter just around the corner it seems the perfect time to check out what’s happening between now and then.
