The weather is absolutely awful here at the moment. We have massive rainstorms and even a so-called weather-warning due to too many water falling down. I can easily understand why … it’s bad outside! We had the same amount of rain today as we normally have in the whole month of October!
I’m just glad it didn’t rain yesterday. My twelve year old nephew, Gerke, had a rugby tournament and I promised to come and watch him play. It was great. They played three matches and won all three. Gerke played extremely well, so well his coach decided to take him out of the game two minutes before the end to allow the audience to applaud him. How cool is that!
I also saw another side of him. He is the team’s captain this year and it was great to see him taking control and responsibility. As captain he is responsible all players know where to be and what to do and talk to the referee and the opponent’s team captain. He was so much more mature all of a sudden. His team mates listened to him and looked at him every time they needed guidance. It was awesome to see. He also took upon himself the task of coaching one of the new players. He is really doing good (says a very, very proud auntie, lol)
Only one week to go and we will have one week off. Little miss Julia will come and stay with me for a few days, brother & co and I will visit a safari park and we will visit dad (not the same thing!). So my week off is already almost fully booked. But with fun things! I can’t wait!
