Secondo te chi vincera' la partita di rugby


...which apparently means, So who do you think will win the rugby (hoping that Sofia has not dobbed me in...) and I am not sure. I am more sure than I was this time last week when we were on our way to Scotland (how quickly does time fly!!) But after the win, I feel more confident that if Hooky is picked again at centre, the increased pace and rapid change of direction (if sometimes a bit unpredicatable even for his own team mates) puts those big Italian forwards on the back foot, than maybe, we can win. Although the scepure of how close Ireland came to losing is scary....

Having been to Italy once, I can tell you that the majority of the city will carry on as normal - and even look a bit distainful at the rugby supporters (esp us Welshie who are madly passionate in supporting their team with a range of paraphinalia which is a bit mad....)BUT Rome is a magical city and the sights take your breath away - Living history...

Me, personally, am planning all my outfits...including something called a "Bumpit" which I am expected to wear on the Friday night. Now, this does not sound good, but it is a bump that lifts your hair into a good bun shape which is all in keeping with the "Mad Men" themed evening....

So, a city that doesnt care much, and four girls who are on a mission to have a good time and wait for their precious team to WIN> think that passion alone should wing it in the city of love....xxx
