One of my students is going - a hard core argyle fan. £35 quid apparently - don't know if that is good value?


I may be speaking out of my rear end here, but in todays market I think that is pretty good for such a big match!


And of course value in other ways. I'll never forget the day my late dad and I went to Wembley to watch Southampton play and beat Man U. We spoke about that for months afterwards. It was a real son and dad day out and something you never forget.
On another occasion when he was old and short of time I took him to the Cheltenham Racing Festival as we were great racing fans to see the Gold Cup. I remember going to put our bets on as he was in a wheelchair and on the way back saw him chatting to a couple of young ladies who had stopped to speak to him. Wasn't he made up about that I can tell you :-)
Sadly he was to leave us just a couple of weeks later after he had his father to son chat with me. I grew up a lot after that!
