So, I believe this post is in order as it is a bank holiday weekend this weekend (*cheers*), so I shall be celebrating in style! As you may have read in one of my previous posts I absolutely love to watch and play ice hockey so this weekend I will be doing both! On Friday evening I shall be having an American-style BBQ at a friend’s house, jumping up and down cheering my team on in the NHL playoffs (Washington Capitals!). For those that don't know hockey, the NHL is the 'big league' over the pond in America and Canada and the playoffs hold the biggest prize of the season, the Stanley Cup, “desired by many, won by few” is a good statement I believe!
As I also said I will be playing ice hockey - I will be playing in a match. Well, I say ‘playing’, it has been quite a while since I last played so I will most likely be causing more trouble to my own team than the others! However, it is all for fun until we start losing, then it gets serious because I hate losing! Jokes aside, it is a match in memory of a player from the opposing team who unfortunately passed away in the night after one of our matches so we have made a charitable event to have a charity game for the cup every year (unfortunately we couldn't get a cup as large as the Stanley Cup)!
I hope this gives a little insight into the life outside work as an apprentice! We do have lives and we do enjoy our spare time!
