Grand Master Shep….. (or how i realised that marrying someone like your Dad is ineviatable!)

We have been to Army Navy rugby. It was quite fun actually and not the very grubby event I was promised by my intended. distinct lack of strapping hunks though.

Shep took the organising part very seriously. I was told in no uncertain terms on thursday that I wouldn’t be allowed a handbag on the day because everything would be packed into his ‘day sack’. Oh how I laughed. The ‘day sack’ look like this:


Shep diligently packed it with waterproofs and a down jacket. Yes, for a rugby game in a pub/stadium NOT a trek up everest.

I negotiated a small shoulder bag. I think I just about got away with it but I was informed that my Uggs were the only acceptable footwear!

I teased him mercilessly all day about his backpack. So did our friends. Everytime a new friend turned up he was teased again but Shep was smug that if it rained ‘we’d all be sorry!’.

    It’s now been retired in favour of the Urban Warrior Coat, although this is now having a rethink due to warmth. Details of the Urban Geek Pack and Urban Warrior Coat if you clicky.

    Is the bungee thing on the back of it to hold roadkill?

    ‘Well’…….what SGT didnt add was that we had both seen a weather forcast that had fortold of showers, and knowing her sensitivity to inclement conditions i was protecting her from a ‘hair/makeup killing shower’ that would of ended the day (a bit of teasing never could of)

    Also….female friends who’s boyfriend/chaperone has recklessly forgot to inform of intermitent showers of urine/beer (weather independent) during the day paid heavily for the high heels/nasty toed shoes…….

    SGT was dry, snug & warm all 3rd May thanks to Grand Master Shep being top boy in the high street survival department!!!!!

    Poke it SGT!!!
