I have had such a busy few days, jam packed full of excitement and a lazy day thrown in between. So I have to say that I’m sorry for the lack of updates here.
Saturday was full of excitement and joy as we went to the Port Lincoln A grade cricket grand final. Mick plays for Charlton (admittedly, he’s only B grade now – age is not nice to cricketers) and it had been 21 years since the A grade had won a premiership. So of course, it was mandatory that we attend the grand final on Saturday (though there wasn’t really any disagreement from me about attending) and we sat there for 6 hours – though sat wouldn’t be the right word, there was a lot of pacing – until that final run when we won! It was so damn exciting and quite honestly the best game of cricket I have ever watched. I could go into the dribs and drabs of the game, but I won’t, but let me just say. Oh. Em. Gee. Nerves, pacing, nail biting action.
The nail biting action, followed by the win, was followed by a trip to the pub where I can honestly say that I didn’t drink anything, but I did have dinner there – a lovely hearty chicken schnitzel. Yes you read correctly. I had a chicken schnitzel and at the time it was great, but afterwards I felt so sick. No guilt, just sick. Lesson learned. Next time I will have a steak. I’m not in that headspace yet where I can go to a pub for a pub meal and have grilled fish and salad. I can do that at home, when I go out to dinner I want to eat something yummy that I don’t make at home – and I never make steak as good as a pub does.
Anyway, Mick decided he would stay at the pub to drink with all the guys, so I went home and said I’d wait up for him so I could pick him. No drinking and driving in this house people. Finally at 3.30am I got him. Got home, fell asleep and got a grand total of about 4 1/2 hours sleep.
Sunday was a do nothing day. So that’s exactly what we did. I finally got my New beginnings quilt finished, sat there watching movies while I sewed the binding on. Then we started watching season one of Sons of Anarchy. I’m hooked, gotta admit it.
But all this sitting around doing nothing didn’t help my 10,000 steps a day for the Everest challenge, so I’m a bit behind on that. So this week I’m getting up at 6.30am to do an hour of exercise before getting ready for work, and I’ve been to the pool for 90 minutes of swimming both last night and tonight just to catch up on my steps. I may only have one sponsor, but I will not let that sponsor or the team down.
So with all that said, I’m going now, need an early night, for an early start tomorrow. Promise I will do a proper post again in the next day or two.
