We played the Nottingham Panthers tonight – we were 3-0 down in 5 minutes, the first period ended 5-0 and we lost 8-0 overall. It was woeful.
(But I post this on Monday and the next night they played fantastically to beat Steelers 3-2, so hey, that’s sport)

Air the bear

In a game around Christmas it is tradition at ice hockey games for everyone to bring a cuddly toy, which is thrown on the ice after the home team score their first goal. These are then given to charity. We played Edinburgh Capitals tonight & won 6-2. I stand at the back so my bear hit someone in the first row but was then deposited on the ice

Happy Brunoversary

It was a year ago today that I adopted Bruno. It’s not always been easy being a single dog parent – he’s had to go into kennels when I travel & I have to get away early sometimes to get back to him. But overall it’s been great – he’d been in the home for 6 months because he was old and a staffie. He’s super affectionate and just wants a home. He is also very good at listening to my thoughts on open education
