i know, i know, it has, again, been ages since I was on here last. Life has just been busy i guess and I have been running around like a madwoman trying to keep everything co-ordinated.
It has of course caught up with me and now I have caught my son's cold, which for me has turned into full blown tonsilitis. Today is day four with no voice, and will be yet another day of trying to get some things done in the morning and sleeping in the afternoon.
So, just a quick run down for you on what I have achieved, other than getting sick:
I started this:
I do need to finish the cardigan, it is so close, I was really rather naughty for starting the socks but I got a bee in my bonnet about them so off I hurtled.
No1 son and i have just gotten back from three days away at a basketball competition where he was supposed to be umpiring. I got sick as we were leaving so it hasn't been a fun weekend for me, spending much of it in a motel room trying to sleep. And for my son it was a bit of a waste as they had too many referees and so they all only got three or four games a day instead of the eight or so that we have had in the past. I am sorry but three games is not enough to justify the money it has cost us in petrol, motel rooms, food etc. I think they need to work out how many they need and put a cap on it. So it means that in future we will be sending him off to tournaments that are not too far away and will not incur accomodation costs.
It was good though that all the games had umpire coaches so he got feedback after every game and his umpiring will only be the better for that. So that was a good outcome. And i have become used to people abusing the umpires and calling them biased. It was quite amusing at one point to sit in amongst some ssupporters and hear what they had to say. I guess you need a thick skin to do it.
And now it is school holidays. Easter this weekend. Where does the time go? Maybe I should stop asking this question and employ my time more usefully to get the most out of it?? LOL!!
