We went for a swim to our neighbours this afternoon and hubby was invited along to be goalie at an old boys hockey game.  Which meant that

1.  I could read blogs in peace

2.  whilst having corny E Entertainment/So you think you can dance/VH1 Classic going in the background

3.  I didn’t have to speak to anyone for 3 hours tonight

4.  He has a much deserved night out with some boys

I didn’t tell him that he wasn’t going to be able to walk for the next few days as he hasn’t played hockey in many, many years.  Shame. ‘evil grin’

It made me think.  When I was at school there were only 2 types of girls:  those that played hockey and those that played netball.  Clearly I was the hockey type, barely made it into the 6th team…  What type were you??

When I went to collect Daniel this afternoon there was about 10 children playing with an almost dead grasshopper.  They would all bend over looking at it and then shriek and run away.  Such a sweet little game and I took some pics, but couldn’t get one without any of their little faces, so I’m not going to post it, I’m not comfortable posting pics of other people’s children.

I’m off to go and read my book in peace, just heard a groaning coming from the girls’ room and went in to find Mignon on the floor and Isabel standing against the side of Mignon’s bed, fast asleep.  Put them both in bed.  My babies.

Isabel took off her nappy and peed on the kitchen floor this evening.  I am DREADING potty training twins..

  1. I did not like sports at all and did everything in my power to get out of it. I tried netball (only because the issue was forced) and made the 7th team or something.
    You should have taken a pic of Isabel standing and sleeping..LOL.xx

  2. I disliked all school sports and only participated if forced. I did netball and badminton until I could get a sick note!

  3. I was also a hockey girl, loved to klap the ball very hard, but bouncing around in a short skirt on the netball court – not so much.

  4. I played both for a long time but eventually stuck with netball because I much better at it than hockey.

  5. sadly we didn’t have the option of hockey … if you wanted to play a sport as a girl netball was the only choice …

  6. I was a hockey, tennis and swimming girl! Being built a bit like Serena Williams helped a lot with all the — dare I say it? Rachehorses around! I powerslammed my way to all the first teams! Would’ve loved to see a pic of I sleepstanding!

  7. I was a netball and athletics girl! Made 2nd team in netball…

    LOL @ I sleepstanding. Shame! Kids can do strange things 🙂

  8. I was the third kind of girl. The type who hid in the bathroom until this whole sport thing went away. 🙂

  9. You just made me laugh out of my very sore stomach. Racehorses, oh we are all going to burn in hell!

  10. I was the netball type. I tried hockey once but was asked to leave for being disruptive. All the other girls were laughing so hard at me they couldn’t play!
