Good evening, all. It's 9.56 pm and I've just come back from watching Gabbie play State League netball. It's perishing outside so I had about three layers of clothing on. My daughter picked me up and I was very happy that I'd thought to dress warmly...until we got to Chandler. The indoor netball courts are like an enormous plane hangar and just as cold. After sitting there for a couple of hours, I thought my extremeties had dropped off. I couldn't feel them. Meanwhile, the under 16s are out on the court in little short dresses, no sleeves, scoop neck. But of course they weren't feeling the cold were they? It's only the idiots sitting on the sideline barracking for their team that got cold. Fortunately, we could buy hot drinks there...really nice coffee, too, my choice...the others had hot chocolate.
Oh, and our team lost...it was Jimboomba (us) versus Toowoomba...sounds like really bad bush poetry, doesn't it? Both teams were tied for first on the leader board. Now Jimboomba is second. I think our kids were a bit rattled because they really didn't play very well until the last 10 minutes...too late then. Anyway, it was a good night and now I'm inside with the fan heater on full blast, trying to thaw out.
A follow on from last Sunday night. When my daughter dropped me off after the game, I came around to the back door and found some wine on my outdoor table...Jane had dropped off a replacement cask for me. She said she felt guilty about drinking all my wine...but no doubt it will happen again sometime...or I'll help them drink theirs.
Well, that's about it for now...I think I'll have a bit of supper, fill up a hot water bottle and choof off to bed. Oh, and by the way, the strange looking animal on the right at the top of this post is a hairy nosed wombat...just in case you were wondering.
