The Welsh Rugby Union wanted to turn Wales red today and asked everyone to go to work wearing red. I was all on my own in work but I heeded the call!
Then I came home and decorated the remaining cakes.
I was doing so well. I kept telling myself that already Wales had got further in the rugby world cup than I'd expected so anything else was a bonus. A semi-final against France tomorrow was the metaphorical icing on the cake.
But then I started to hope ... and to believe.
So much easier when you don't have expectation.
