Hearts Galore

Morning all.  How are we today.  Had a great weekend, quiet day Saturday spend crafting and then went to the opening game for Hull KR in this years Superleague.  A very exciting game, freak weather and we thought we were going to get a right pasting but thanks to good old Josh they managed a draw, he kicked into the wind after the hooter.  Only a draw but so unexpected it felt like a win!!
