Had lunch down the Mumbles today with friends Mike and Sharon from the Cardiff Devils. When I made those first tentative steps to see ice hockey in the flesh, Mike and Sharon and Tim, another friend, were the first supporters of the Devils that I talked to. They made me feel very welcome and part of the Devils' family, so much so that before I became a season ticket holder I made sure I had tickets in their row at the back of the Big Blue Tent. We all sit in the same block in the new arena now. A good lunch and chat, it was good to see them.
Weather was a bit funny, when I left home it was raining, get to Mumbles it was scorching and sunny, get back home after lunch and it's still raining. Not a great distance to travel, but miles and miles apart in terms of weather.
