Well hello all, hope your weekend was a good one. Mine was productive to say the least!! I did get into the unspare room and it is now starting to look like the sewing room it was intended to look like. But before I share the photos on that lets talk Saturday. Jak is back playing cricket now that he is no longer in a cast. He hung up his bat for a season (year) and had his first couple of games on Saturday. Two twenty twenty games.
The second game was a final for some competition, I have no idea what one but hey I went to watch! This one was held at our Cities Cricket Ground, Seddon Park and me and TOF sat in the members stand with the other dozen supporters. Yes it was a huge game and pulled an outstanding vocal crowd! Jak was the last batter to go in and there was only one ball left to face. Look at me talking cricket like I know what was going on. Basically the other dude hit the ball and they had to run resulting in Jak getting a DUCK!! Which means no runs for Jak. No biggy as it was the very last ball but he got his name on the big screen and of course I got a photo of that duck, because I am that kind of supportive mother.
Then it was time to bowl and he was the third bowler to do his thing. Apparently he is a left hand pace bowler, woohoo I think. He didn't do to bad for only two training sessions and then into it. Oh they came second, they lost.
Seddon is a lovely ground and I think I could do another game if I can sit in the grand stand or maybe one of those corporate boxes. I am glad he has got his cricket mojo back because he was pretty good at the game and was quite passionate about it. I also would not mind in the least if he was so good that he got to play in the IPL in India, $$$$$!!!!!
So that was Saturday taken care of.
Yesterday, Sunday, TOF had to go to Auckland for work so he left quite early. I set off outside to feed the girls and then picked a pile of Blackberries and some tomatoes. I could because he wasn't home, and because I am such a rebel I even watered the garden last night!! I know!!
Most men will tell you that more than a handful is a waste so lucky this fits into my hand!!
I won the tomato growing competition because mine ripened first but TOF can take out size and weight, this one was just over 400g. A perfect example of another male thing about size being what counts!!
There was 500g of Blackberries and that was just a mornings picking. I have more than enough for Jam now, maybe today I will do that, after my other chores. TOF requested a sultana cake, hmmmmm maybe.
Oscar got a long overdue "Poof and a Pamper", a haircut, bath, and nails clipped. So glad I can do all of this as it does save me a bundle. There really was a small dog under all that fluff!!
And look, I have a two seater couch!!!
I spent a big part of the day moving
crap treasure out of my sewing room, making it all lovely and useable again. I still have more to do but at least it is a workable area.
Where did all the
crap treasure end up you ask??
The plan is to sort my way through all of this and work out what stays, what gets donated and what gets on sold. By putting it in the garage it makes me do it as I don't like leaving my car outside over night.
So that is what I am doing today,
what are you up to??
