A sad moment yesterday, as Coach Anthony delivered his final team talk to the 2012-13 Aireborough Lions Under 6s. Boo hoo!
End-of-season presentations will follow next Sunday, whilst the rugby dads get drunk.
But thankfully I have more uplifting news on the rugby front.
I recently declared in our kitchen that, in two years' time, I wanted to go to Rome to watch Ireland play Italy in the Six Nations. Vanessa mumbled something along the lines of "very interesting dear" in response.
And there has been a development after the fixtures for the 2015 Six Nations tournament were announced.
It turns out that the date of the Italy v Ireland game is Saturday 7 February, with a 2.30pm kick-off.
And what a stroke of fortune that is. Because 7 February 2015 is the precise date when Mrs White reaches the somewhat alarming age of 40.
So, for her 40th birthday, I shall be taking her to the rugby and then around the pubs afterwards. I might even buy her some novelty head gear. A leprechaun hat, perhaps.
What a lucky (old) Mrs White she is.
