Blue Moon

Parking the car just off King Richard's Road, my son and I walk the mile or so to Leicester City's King Power Stadium.

Today they play Manchester City, the current football champions of England.

It's a crisp December afternoon. The sun is out, the pavements are frosty, slippy in places, we expect to lose.

By Liberty Island, down by the canal, we stop and buy lamb burgers from the Barge Burger. Steam and smoke from the grill at the rear of the boat rising with the pre-match crowd's excited chatter as they walk on by towards the stadium over Walnut Bridge.

Just enough time for a bit of banter with the women who run this unique burger outlet.

As to the match, a good one even though we lost to the sky blue shirts of Manchester City by one goal to nil.
