What a surprise the city of Sheffield was...we loved it! The cobbled roads, the old building, the shops, the atmosphere on the bustling streets near the Crucible...what a buzz.
The Winter Gardens
My friend got us tickets for his matches so we were sorted... the theatre was so nice, not like other snooker tournaments where your butt is so incredibly numb if you're sitting in the audience, the seats were so comfy we could sit back, relax, and enjoy the AMAZING show he put on!
Ready to go...
In between sessions, lunches, dinners and nights out, we found time to do some more exploring... Unfortunately is was raining most of the time apart from our last morning... hence, most of our pictures were taken then...
Inside the Winter Gardens
We also met two of the nicest people ever, friends of a friend, from Ireland.
The Irish contingent...
Dearbh, Kelly and Ferg
Ken and Dearbh
Dearbhla doing her motherly duties and ironing my clothes ...
Dinners out... and Dearbhla (the Meath Rose) modelling her sash!!!
Chris and Dearbhla at the Chinese
Dearbh and Django
As usual, our adventures were...eventful..... we had such a great time and finally being at the Crucible was so special, especially the result after 17 days!
Bring on next year!
