Making the most

The weather is forecast to to turn very wet over night, so the Gorse Fox was eager to make the most of the fine day and enjoy his football. This particularly so having missed a game on Sunday, when we didn't have sufficient players.

There was a good turn out and in the first hour the Gorse Fox played for the green bibs. This was not a resounding success as we drew the first game but lost the next two. The Gorse Fox did redeem things with a fine goal in the last game, but it wasn't enough to snatch a win.

In the second hour he played for the blue bibs. This was more successful with a 3-0 win, a 1-1 draw and a 2-1 loss. The Gorse Fox did however score another fine goal, so went away feeling quite satisfied. It looks likely that he will get very wet playing tomorrow.

The afternoon was spent back in the branches of the family tree. He has decided that the only way to sort out the anomaly in the Silver Vixen's part of the tree is tree surgery. He is now, carefully, unpicking details and deleting people. The idea is that he will then rebuild that part of the tree so that he can be confident in its accuracy.

Urban-Cub popped round for a while. She an Pistol Pete are looking to buy a house and came to show us the details and explain the deal they hope to strike as first time buyers, using the Government's "Help to Buy" scheme. It looks like a good deal and the house that they are focussed on, looks really nice (and is a mile or so closer to us than their current rental house).

Talking of houses, Cousteau-Cub is packing up her house on Koh Lanta ready to move over to Koh Phi Phi. As the Coventry Hobbit is working, the packing up is left to Cousteau-Cub. She hopes to have a little "sale" later in the week at a friend's hotel. This will get rid some unnecessary stuff and make her a little extra money.
