A Good Day

It’s been a good day. First of all I was officially presented with the Beard of Winter 2018 Award by the inestimable Keith Flett (right):

The picture was taken (by Megan Davies) outside The Small Bar in Cardiff after a celebratory tipple.

After that it was down to Cardiff Bay, where the Wales Millennium Centre was resplendent in the winter sunshine for an excellent afternoon performance of Tosca (which I’ll review more fully tomorrow):

And if that wasn’t enough, I emerged from the Opera to find that Newcastle Utd had beaten Manchester Utd in the Premiership, a game I had expected them to lose…

So yes, it’s been a good day..

    You are tactfully not mentioning the rugby while in Cardiff…

    • I saw some of yesterday’s game in the pub yesterday, but kept my opinions to myself about the disallowed try, as I was heavily outnumbered by Wales fans.

      I also missed what must have been a cracker today between Scotland and France.

  2. Congrats on the Beard award. I’m tempted to punt for the Beard of Spring award (assuming these are seasonal). And the delight on Keith Flett’s face at bestowing this award is plain for all to see.

  3. Quite dazzling. Congrats.
