Still grey this morning, but the rain had stopped and the paths were drying up.

The Silver Vixen had her Pilates and the Gorse Fox had his football. We managed to split the teams quite evenly today. The game started and it soon became clear that it was going to be very close and very tight. A flukey goal from the yellow team saw them take the lead, but our orange team struck back within minutes. The Gorse Fox was in his usual defensive position, but having intercepted a pass, he pushed the ball through to his midfield and followed up with an overlap along the right wing. The ball was pinged back to him and fired it across the goalkeeper into the far corner of the net. It was 2-1, and that's how it stayed for a while before the yellows hauled things level. The second half was very much a case of cat and mouse... but there were no further goals.

Honours even.

Afternoon was spent on the family tree. Lots of general progress, though no further generations detected. The Gorse Fox's research was interrupted by a FaceTime call from Beloved Aunt (with help from his Sis). Sis comes home overnight, but it was nice to chat with BA before she left.
