Do we seem happy to you? Well we were! Because Isobel and I were off to the Stade de France to watch France vs Wales in the second week of six nations!

It was absolutely packed out and Isobel and I had calculated our time wrong and left for the Stadium a little late (we were watching Italy get destroyed by Scotland). Now, as you can see the stadium was packed out. And, if you've been in Paris for any prolonged amount of time, you'll know that seating reservations don't really work well here...so really I don't know why Isobel and I were surprised to find one of our seats had been stolen.

In attempting to point out where our seats were, the guy who was technically in one of our seats told the people to his left to budge up, the guy at the end of the row made a pointing motion next to him and did a beautiful French shrug as in to say 'there's no more seats, deal with it.' So Isobel and I thanked our lucky stars we had quite small bums, and got friendly with the locals by sharing a seat.

The game wasn't the most thrilling of the six nations but the atmosphere was amazing! It did start to get very cold though so Isobel and I were happy to get home to drink tea and defrost!
