I know I haven't been posting of late, but I have been trying to keep up with my favourite blogs.
Life is kinda hectic at the moment, but nothing new there. It just seems that I have had less computer time than usual. Not sure why, but that seems to be the case.
Not a lot of knitting getting done either, mainly due to RSI of my left wrist. I am managing to knit for about 30 mins
, then have to rest wrist for a few days....really doing my "head in", that is! No pix of WIP
either. Busy knitting baby stuff at the moment, as one of the "rugby mums" in Bob's team is having a baby in August and Karen, who taught both boys to swim is having one in September. Thank goodness they didn't ask me to knit a shawl, as at the rate I'm knitting, they would be going to school before they got it! I have an other "craft" project on the go, but it needs to be kept a secret at the moment, all will be revealed later.
On the rugby front it has been busy, busy, busy. We are now into tour and tournament season.I was off down to Ayr
at the beginning
of April with Bob's team to play in a tournament an Ayr
RFC. I honestly don't know what happens to them when they go there, but we always see their best rugby there. They came 3rd out of 6 teams. In fact all 3 Musselburgh
teams came third out of 6 teams....a good result for all.I was going to upload some pix, but for some reason this is not possible, even having problems uploading them to emails today as well! Gremlins in the system I think.Bob's lot now have tournaments for the next few weeks, then they end the season with a kids and coaches fun day on 16th
May, with their "Player of the Year" presentation at night. I will miss the kids and coaches fun day, the first I have missed in 6 years, I will be at the presentation at night though. However I do have a valid reason for missing the fun day.......I am away on tour with Ronan's
team hosted a touring U13 team from Stockport
on Friday night. The age groupings are slightly different in England than in Scotland, which means that we play boys who are between 4 and 12 months older than us. At this stage in the boys physical development it means they are playing much BIGGER, stronger boys. We always knew that it would be a tough game, and we did have the option to get players from the next age up, but we decided that this wouldn't be fare on the boys in our team who had been playing with us for years. We got beat 9 tries to 4, so it wasn't too bad. Having said that we did not play our usual standard of rugby, not sure why, but they didn't seem to be switched on at all. We even had a piper to pipe them out onto the pitch, again no pix as it won't upload. We had an away game in the Borders on Sunday and it was the same boys playing, but they were on "Planet rugby" on Sunday and played their usual standard and came away with a great result.....26 points to 7. The last time we played this team we were beat by 1 point. Their team have been asked to play a game between the semi-final and the final at the Musselburgh 7's Tournament
May. Then they are going off on "Tour" to Stonehaven
to play Mackie Academy FP RFC
on 15/16 May. (Mackie Academy
is my old High School). We are looking forward to that. These games in Stonehaven
are the last for the season. We have our presentation night on the 29th
May, and that's
it for the 2008-2009 season.............Roll on 30th
May!!!!!! I get a few weeks break, then its back to pre
-season fitness training at the end of June/beginning
July. Don't get me wrong, I REALLY love being involved with the rugby, if I didn't love it I wouldn't do it.
