T2D: Move House, Get Married, Scotland Rugby Tour

The season might be coming to a close at Gloucester, but things aren’t winding down for me.

I’ve been moving house this week, and my wedding is coming up in July.

Once we’ve moved house and planned the wedding, I’ll head off on tour with Scotland, to take on Australia, Samoa and Fiji.

That’s an exciting challenge and one I cannot wait for, and after that it will be straight back home for the wedding in Edinburgh.

There’s so much happening it’s hard not to be excited – the first challenge is a very tough game against London Irish.

If we could get a win there and round off a tough few weeks that would be ideal.

We’ve bought a small farmhouse and we love living in the South West, and hopefully it’s somewhere we can put down roots long-term as a family, whatever happens with the rugby.

Helping plan the wedding has been more stressful than I imagine, but things are taking shape now.

I don’t really like being the centre of attention, but the big day isn’t really about me so much, it’s for my fiancée and I’m excited about making it special for her and for our families.

We’re having a small ceremony up in Edinburgh, that’s where we got engaged and the place means a lot to both of us.

Having our son Jack James there will be amazing, we’ve had him kitted out in his kilt already – but he’s growing so quickly that it’s already a bit short!

By the time it comes round he might wonder what he’s wearing.

He was running around Mike and Zara’s wedding in a kilt then, because that was in Scotland too, so he’s maybe a little used to it.

There’s always a lot going on off the field, but if you can make sure things turn out well, it just makes the rugby even better – it would be great if that’s how things go this summer.
