Good evening. Well it’s the start of the long Easter weekend today and I’ve been out umpiring a game of cricket.
Compared to last week’s warmth and sunshine, today was grey, dark and cold with a keen nor’wester blowing into my face for the whole game. Not pleasant, but the game was ok, no problems once again, and another game safely negotiated.
It did take me a while to get into the game and to lift my concentration, which seemed to be a bit lacking in the early stages. After a few mental kicks in the backside, I got myself back on track and the rest of the game was no trouble.
Glad to be back indoors, in the warm, drinking a nice hot cup of tea. Got to brave all sorts of weather conditions being a cricket umpire, so it was a shock after last week. Manageable though.
Peace and love
