Hi all! Yes, we were there, waving our flags, for who ever scored! Tried to shout for Australia, but it was just as exciting when the All Blacks scored and won the match! ( Rugby World Cup!)
We stayed in a hotel for two nights. Must say the facilities for S were really good. Got to the ground, we were thoroughly spoilt! No queuing, everyone got out the way, the staff were very caring and keep making sure we were all comfort and people weren't blocking our view! The toilets, we had to use our radar key, so nobody else could use them, again, not queuing. I did think it was going to be hard work with S, but no, it was fabulous! OK, I did have help with my daughter and her partner, but that meant we were able to have fun and good laugh!
Getting into a pub afterwards, was no problem, everyone just got out of the way, he had lots of attention, from loads of young pretty women!!!
We can still take part in "normal" life, can't get any more normal than a big sporting occasion. It was well organised by my daughter, to make life easy. But even coming home, we flagged down a black cab and we could just push S into it!!! The facilities for our loved ones at these big venues are very good and actually work, staff are trained to look after you. It's just a shame that the places we have to visit most of the time, doctors, hospital, supermarket etc, etc,., it's such a struggle!
Lots of love
