It was an excellent day. The weather was warm (20C) and sunny with hardly a cloud in the sky. This presented lovely conditions for the usual football.
The football was great fun. The Gorse Fox, who hasn't played since last Tuesday, played well. In the first three games he won, drew and lost a game but defended well, and had several good shots on goal (though they were saved). In the second three games, the teams were a little lop-sided. This made it very hard work at the back, particularly when the other defender walked off the pitch without telling anyone. The Gorse Fox did, however, manage to score a great goal volleying the ball in from the edge of the area.
The Gorse Fox sat and enjoyed the warm weather in the Orangery for a while then went for a stroll on the garden to look at how well the acers are thriving this year.
Only 22 days now before Cousteau-Cub comes home for a visit. We're really looking forward to this and getting quite excited.
