Good afternoon, everyone. What a hot and humid day it is. Hope you're all ok?
Thought I'd share a few pics with you taken yesterday at the Bristol Rovers Fun day. However, the day started out rather sad, as our budgie, Timmy, had to be put to sleep. He was an elderly gentleman, but no less it was horrible to make the decision that it was better for him to go to sleep than see him suffer. At some point during the night he obviously had an accident that saw him damage his leg rather gruesomely, beyond help. So myself and Keagan went from our initial excitement of looking forward to the day ahead to feeling rather sad. Keagan broke his heart as he said goodbye to the little fellow, and I found it hard to stay unaffected as I comforted him. It's horrible seeing your child lose something for the first time.
Late morning we picked up Keagan's friend Travis, and made our way to Bristol. The fun day is an annual event that takes place at the Memorial Stadium, home of Bristol Rovers. The players, management and board are there mingling with the fans all day. The event is free, and offers fans a chance to wander around the stadium, meet the players and grab some autographs and pictures.
We managed to meet most of our new players, and had a chat with some of them who've been there a while. Firstly we met the new manager!
Not such a good picture of me, but am really pleased we had chance to have a chat with Paul Buckle before he ended up surrounded by fans all day.
We thoroughly enjoyed the day, though I came home in a lot of pain and was very tired. But it was all worth it to see Keagan smiling and happy after seeing him so sad earlier in the day.
