My Favourite sport

That's me on the far right, in the aqua top - wasn't I skinny then??

Ok, slight confession - I love watching sport on tele (or real live life as well I guess. Footy, cricket, ski jumping, formula 1, anything really. But playing is a whole other matter.

But back in my hey day, ie when I was young, weighed a bit less I loved to play soccer. At Uni we had an indoor soccer team, sponsored by one of the many, many local pubs - hence The Imperial Kegs. We played on a Friday night at different times, so occasionally we had to interrupt a social event to go off and play soccer. The results were variable to say the least.

I was pleased when Julie and her team at My favourite things came up with My favourite sport this week, a perfect excuse to relive the old times.

But we had enormous fun, and two of the girls became my bridesmaids and another lives in the same suburb as us.

And this leads me to my very wonderful gratitude today - one of the girls in the photo has a son who has just undergone major, major surgery. A fortnight ago they were told to expect the worse, but luckily further scans revealed a much better prognosis, he had the surgery yesterday and has come out of well and with the best possible result. They expect him to be home in a week. Such a relief.

So I am thankful H is better than we all hoped.

back with a new dolly Lo soon, have a great day. xx
