Part of the return to school, means Saturdays involve some sport for Matt. Many parents go to watch the matches, and it is quite a sociable time. So I was determined not to miss out.
Matt was involved in a pre season tournament / training games for his school at Sevenoaks in Kent. Possibly a bit far for me to go on the first trip out, but I couldn't really choose.
So, sitting on the back seat of the car with my foot up (CJ I'm sure you can relate to this!), we set off. Ok, I would have preferred it if the school weren't mid building works and I hadn't had to walk up a muddy bank to get to the rugby pitches, but I made it! (Thankfully, with it being a rugby tournament there was plenty of men to help me back down when we were leaving!)
I don't usually watch Matt's rugby whilst sitting down, but that was the only option yesterday, and will be for a few weeks yet. But it was ok - sort of! Another mum had had an operation during the summer, so she needed to sit down regularly, so I had company.
I did manage some photos too, although I was limited as I couldn't keep stopping to take a snap. You'll have to believe me that it was a lovely day, the sun made an appearance. It was great to see so many teenagers playing competitive sport.
But here are a few photos I can share. Matt is the one with the red scrum cap, often to be found at the bottom of the pile of boys. But he had fun.
My foot is ok this morning, but we won't talk about how it felt when I got home. But today I shall be resting!
Wishing you a happy Sunday.
