Bronwen and I have enjoyed a week with our son Simeon, his wife Jane and their girls, Grace and Lara, in Canberra.
On Saturday night Simeon, Grace and I went to Canberra Stadium to watch the Super 14 match between ACT Brumbies and the Wellington Hurricanes. I was one of the few in the very parochial crowd flying the flag for the kiwis but it did the trick. With what we thought was the help of a dodgy referree, the Hurricanes defeated the Brumbies 23 – 13. Most of the scoring was down at the end where we were sitting which was great. The evening was clear and windless which would have been foreign to the Hurricanes but they managed to overcome the conditions and emerge triumphant.
The evening capped off a great two weeks with our children and grandchildren in Victoria and ACT.
