Whewwwwwwwwwww...what a last few days!! Unbelievable!!
Here I was sitting here Thursday night thinking I was on the downhill slide to the Xmas holidays until the phone rang and I got a call that would rock my socks off!!
I'd received a call from Jyes' indoor cricket coach 2 weeks back but I hadn't had a chance to return the call. I thought it was just to let me know the Superleague comp. wasn't going ahead 'cos the Canberra teams had dramas or something like that. Turns out that he was chosen to play for the NSW Metro team in a 4 day tournament...starting at 8.30a.m the next friggen morning!! What the?? He thought I'd found out from someone else and blah blah blah...to cut a long story short...I've just spent the last 4 days....37 hours in fact but hey...whos counting??...sitting exactly 1 metre back from a green indoor cricket net watching game after game after game after game.....Oh what fun oh what joy! Thanks Santa...you're a legend mate!! Ho ho friggen ho to you too brother!! LOL
Actually, I had the best time and so did Jye. In the last 4 days I have witnessed some of the best cricket and sadly, some of the worst sportsmanship I have ever seen.
Some of the teams were just lovely kids and parents and had travelled a long way to play but some of them were complete assholes. I couldn't believe my eyes and ears watching some of those kids play...but the worst was their parents. Unbelievable!
Anyway...I don't want to even waste my time writing about them, they were that disgusting!
This morning the Grand Finals were held and our other side made it in. It was a game and a half and one of those that came down to the last ball. We WON!! Great stuff.
It really was a fantastic experience for Jye and I'm sure one he'll treasure for a long while. One I'll remember for a while too. :)
I've got to say though..I'm happy to be able to come home and stay home..not crawl in the door at 8.30p.m or 9.30p.m like Saturday night. I feel like I've literally eaten, slept and shit cricket for the last 37 hours...like being in a cricket camp or something. I have to adjust to being home again...LOL
Not much else happening here..Michael too the boys back to Bungonia on the weekend and guess what? The dune buggy doesn't go anymore! Can you believe it? Apparently...according to Michael...one of the boys used it as a bulldozer. Hmmmmmm...what were they doing is the question but no-one was hurt so I really don't think I want to know. Apparently Josh went for his you-beaut bike ride on his trail bike for all of 2 minutes before he hit a tree and flew over the handle bars...snapping the tree in 3 places and smashing his bike he just paid $500- to get fixed on Thursday!! Again...no-one was hurt but it makes me wonder why things like that don't happen when mother is around? Hmmmmmmmmmmm???
Thats it for me..I'm off to pick up the kiddies.
Blogger won't let me upload a team photo so I'm packing up and pissing off...ROFL
