The 24 hours that we were there were pretty jam-packed. All the girls of the family went shopping whilst my dad and my uncle went to the football. After an hour of shopping, I left the girls and went to watch the football. Our team won 6-0! It was the first time I have seen them win in person since last November and the first time I've ever been to a game where we've lost track of how many we have scored. It was also pretty cool to see my cousin's boyfriend play for the first team. Needless to say, all the fans were pretty content with that result.
After the match we stayed in the clubhouse to watch the Wales vs Australia rugby match. I'm not a huge rugby fan but I've really been getting in to the World Cup this year. Wales lost that match but the match we were really interested in was later that evening; the Wales vs Bosnia football match- Wales just needed one point to qualify to Euro 2016 (their first major championships since 1958 I believe). I've never actually watched a Wales match in Wales so it was quite an experience being one of few girls in the clubhouse watching the match with all the football fans who were all very emotionally invested in the outcome. Long story short, after an emotional rollercoaster, Wales have qualified with one game to go and everyone was extremely happy. I think my uncle fell asleep singing the national anthem under his breath.

This morning (Sunday) we woke up and went for a 3 mile walk down by the beach. I honestly think I'd live a much healthier lifestyle if I lived near the sea. After that, I went round to my cousin's house and had an hour of quality time with my niece Emily, I can't believe she's 7 months old now, she's growing and learning so much. It's quite clear that she adores her dad and food- I'm not sure which one she likes more! It was also lovely to be able to make her laugh and smile whenever I played with her.

How was your weekend?
