me on Monday

back at my computer after a hugely enjoyable and full weekend in Glasgow seeing my nephews and watching 45 rugby 7s games over 2 days.


I’ll share photos of the action later in the week.  Today I wanted to share a flavour of the event – as you can see the stadium is not massive so everyone had a good view of the action – our seats were in the front row on Saturday and 4th row on Sunday – which was an advantage during the wetter parts of the day.

There was plenty of entertainment in all the short breaks between games – such as the mascots joining the cheerleaders


and appreciating all the groups who had dressed up for the occasion – something very odd in seeing a section of the audience all looking the same


with a game of audience ‘where’s wally for any slack moments’ – there are 2 in this photo. 

Plus regular exhortations to join in with singing (sweet Caroline is still stuck in my head) and of course having to choose which team to support in each game and then joining in with lots of cheering and chanting – Kenya and Fiji had the most noticeable groups of fans – in terms of colour and noise.

And every time Scotland was playing there was extra spectacle with flags and cheerleaders and a special graphic of Nessie scoring a try whenever the team scored


Waving to everyone and wishing you all a good week – I’m off to spend to catch up on you all with the 109 posts waiting for my in my reader.

It sounds like an absolute blast! I think you'll be carried through the rest of the week by the thoughts of Sweet Caroline and a lot of cheering. Have a good one!
