“Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it's much more serious than that.” ~ Bill Shankly

Ditz doesn't think much of my musical ability & Liddy is scathing about my soccer ability but just for a moment here I want to brag on me, instead of my kids, because today I scored a goal. One goal. As oppossed to no goals. I was standing in just the right spot at just the right time & got my foot to the ball at just the right angle to put the ball in the back of the net. As even a little pressure usually sends my balls wide I am rather chuffed.

It was hot again, but not as hot as last week, so I moved forward as there were fewer bodies on the pitch this week. I think we were playing about 7 a side but it's only the little kids who are prepared to run & run & run. The rest of us wilt after about 10 minutes & have little bursts when absolutely forced to move.

I got the second coat on the verandah before the storms hit last night & Issi had a complete meltdown. That cat is a complete nut job! The rain was much needed but no~one remembered the washing so all Liddy's jumpers were wet this morning & we draped them over the heater desparately because she is running a temperature & I've got her sniffles & Ditz is just ratty. I do so love it when we all get sick together.
