Mrs D has always had a thing about Welsh rugby playing farmers. Not only was I 'selected' from a range of suitors some 40 years ago - but her current pin ups fall into the same category (now that Henman has joined Pat Cash in retirement). The two who have been catching her eye of late are Mark Jones and Mike Phillips. I should add that her eyesight and judgement may well have improved over the years.
And I had a chat with Mike this week in Cardiff. I was relaxing in the Bay when I passed him having a coffee outside Mimosa - so I wished him luck for today's game, next month's World Cup and the battle for supremacy with Justin Marshall over the season. But if I'm honest, I cannot see what made him leave the Blues to go to the Ospreys. Well perhaps I can guess - but its not the sort of thing to say to a God when he's in relax mode.
That's the great thing about Cardiff. It may be our capit(A)l city, but its still small enough to seem almost 'small town'. Tim and Adrienne are forever texting to say they have 'spotted' someone famous strolling around the Bay. I will not be at all surprised to see Mrs D having a coffee at Mimosa next time we're down in Cardiff..
