I hope you've all had a good weekend and the sun has shone for you.
On our Friday walk to school we met some new friends, who were quite keen to check us out!
I kept looking at the forecast on Friday as our weekend plans required nice weather - or at least dry.
We woke up to torrential rain on Saturday morning, which for a few minutes flooded the patio. It was quite a spectacle and so loud. I thought that there would be no way that Matt's cricket could be played. But by 11am it had stopped raining and was starting to dry out, and the school where the match was were happy to let the boys play. So off we went to Cranleigh.
And out came the sun. Perfect weather in fact - not too hot, just lovely and warm. I took my camera and crochet so was happy.
Matt broke his bat at the previous match. And anyone who has a sporty son will know they aren't cheap to replace. I know I never had sporting equipment like they do! Mark had spotted a "bargain" on line. A bat reduced from £200 to £20. Matt wasn't convinced, but Mark ordered it anyway. Matt was talked in to opening the batting (he is the youngest in the team) and despite my comment of "oh well he will have plenty of time before wicket keeping then) he batted for 30 of the 35 overs. A proud mummy moment. As you can imagine the new bat is "okay". You don't get much more from teenage boys! :)
The sun has been out today too, and I've been out for a walk with my mum and a friend and her daughter. The boys preferred to go and play golf.
Green fields and blue skies. :)
A stray poppy. I could fields in the distance where there were poppies, but only this one in the field we walked through.
I'd better go and cook supper - and I think I deserve a glass of wine.
I like weekends in the sun.
