Nah... not really! The Gorse Fox still wakes up most mornings unable to believe he doesn't have to go in to work. In fact not just today, but ever. He is still surprised by this, but so thankful.
Cousteau-Cub was up first this morning. She does not have the luxury of retirement and she had to get in to work for an early shift. Well, early in terms of her job, not early by Urban-Cub's standards. The Gorse Fox was up soon after and saw her off. The Silver Vixen had arranged to meet with Urban-Cub at Haskins for some shopping during the morning so she headed off soon after the Gorse Fox left for football.
The Gorse Fox had a moderate game today. He seems to have retained his fitness while away, but his 'touch' needs some attention. Balls were often over hit, or were wide of their mark. Never mind - it will come back with a few games under his belt. In the first hour, the Gorse Fox played for the yellows and we managed to lose the first game 2-0, draw the second games 0-0, and win the last game 1-0 (with a goal from the Gorse Fox). In the second hour we played on a smaller pitch. The Gorse Fox was playing for the red-bibs in this game, but we managed to lose all three matches. The Gorse Fox did manage to have two goals disallowed, however.
Back home this afternoon his legs feel like lead.
