Old Trafford Main Entrance Hazel and James

Hazel, James and I went up North last weekend to the Old Trafford football stadium in Manchester and saw Japan versus Egypt football quarter final of the 2012 Olympics.

It was very exciting as the stadium was full (over 70,000 fans) and the noise from the spectators was very loud. However the crowed was very well behaved (no holligans) and it was all very pleasant.

Japan took quickly control of the game and scored at the beginning, then Egypt lost 1 player and didn't really recover since sadly. The final score was 3 - 1 for Japan.

Hi all,

Today we went in the nature reserve looking for "animals" for close to an hour.

James walked all the way and never asked to be carried. He even requested to be put back on the floor when I started lifting him up on my shoulders.

Have you seen zombies watching monsters before?

James, Lyna and Yvan were mesmerised by the laptop watching a DVD of Doctor Who (in English no French subtitles). Notice the jaw dropping and the large round eyes.

For lunch we went with my family to eat French fries and roasted chicken.

It is a classic at the fair. The fries are prepared by the restaurant from real potatoes (not that frozen stuff) and were excellent as was the chicken.

Simple and delicious.

After the crash at the fishing duck attraction, James was recovering quickly going round and round on the bus. He went on it 3 times if remember well and enjoyed each turn.

We went with Pascal (my brother) and is wife Anne who kindly put us up for a few days while we were on our ways to my parents.
