Watching Football

I had the dubious pleasure of watching two football games at the weekend, one on Saturday and one on Sunday. I was rather hoping to go out on the bikes on Sunday as the weather was set to be fair. However in the best laid plans of mice and men I dutifully accompanied SOH as he refereed his second match of the weekend.

I can't help wishing he was a rugby referee instead as although it was pleasant (when you could get out of the cold wind) it was not as interesting as a rugby match. What made up for it was having the very pleasant company of a nice young man called Murphy who insisted on playing with his toys and generally being very entertaining.

Sunday was a little warmer, less people watching and I took up my same place as thankfully when any balls went off the pitch they avoided my position. Once more I had Murphy to keep me company and after he devoured his chew, played chase the ball and had a number of treats he rolled over and had a belly scratch before gently snoring away.

Next week, no matter the weather, the bike is coming out. No more excuses, no more delays. Time to remember how to have fun.

I spent many years sitting on the side of playing fields and courts when my boys played sports...just something you do for your family.
