Another glorious weekend dear reader – as luck would have it I was off on Sunday which enabled me to enjoy both the sunshine and my son's last rugby league game of the season.
Spirits were high and plenty of encouraging noise from both sets of parents, except one – ME! I lost count of how many people came up to me and said 'WOW what were you drinking last night?' or 'You're too old and wise to go clubbing' etc!
You see – not one unit of alcohol had passed my lips at that point. However, I had launched the Acer TSV that morning at midnight and eventually got into bed at around 3.30am and fell asleep around 4ish – except that was the morning the clocks went forward an hour and it was really 5ish! I somehow raised myself out of bed three hours later but sadly the passing years mean the face needed a good ironing before venturing out (Health & Safety note: only joking!).
If that wasn't enough, several people made a point of coming up to me at the rugby to say they had watched my hilarious efforts at dancing whilst demonstrating the Wii Fit bundle with Abby Surgeon. On top of that we lost to a last second try scored after the ref had called 'final play' when we were two points ahead – ouch!
The saving grace was that when I got home my wife had put the fantastic Kelly Hoppen TSV on our bed and I was able to try and catch up some zzzzzz's 700 THREAD COUNT Egyptian cotton – bliss! Check out Kelly's 'day in the life of' blog too.
In a couple of weeks Jack and I are going on the 'Rock and Roll' rugby club tour to Wales – I will not be dancing but I will be appearing on the last day as Ozzy Osbourne (pics will no doubt follow!)
Hope you had a great weekend too and have a wonderful Mother's Day to come, if you are celebrating it.
