Again there is not a lot to report from this end of the world today, so I will fill up the post with another couple of photos that my daughter Kate posted on Facebook last night.
I did manage to ride to work and back today. The knee seemed to survive okay, it didn’t feel particularly strong but didn’t actually hurt either, so I guess I should take that as a win. The ride to work was uneventful, the ride home from work included two magpie swoops and getting chased by a yapping little dog, but I survived both.
The photos below show me “and my girls” from many, many years ago (the first is probably fifteen years ago). I coached “my girls” from when they were “Under 8′s” (so starting when they were about 6 years old) through to adult league (18+), and was lucky enough for a core group of the girls to stay in the team for all that time. I watched them all grow up from gorgeous little kids to beautiful young women, and to be truthful, the time I spent doing this is amongst the happiest of my memories. I’m sitting here at my desk in the study writing this now looking at a signed picture they framed and gave me that I have on the wall, a ceramic plate that was made for me with all the girls names on it when we won the Summer 2000-2001 Grand Final, and numerous other trophies from down the years. Happy days!
