The Gorse Fox started the day with a stroll round to Urban-Cub so that he could walk with her and Ellie to school. Ellie was in a bit of a strop when he arrived but soon calmed down. Urban-Cub was reporting a bit of a tickly cough. "Get tested" said the Gorse Fox. So it is that, at lunchtime, she pulled into the Tangmere testing centre and took a PCR test. Now we await the results.
The Gorse Fox had football this morning. It was a fairly close game during the first half, with a 4-4 scoreline as we changed ends. Unfortunately, the Gorse Fox's yellow team then seemed to let everything slip. Time and again the goalie rolled the ball out to the opposition, and time and again the other full-back allowed people to get round behind him without challenge. Goodness knows what the final score was... but yellows were soundly thrashed.
Back home, showered, and fed the Gorse Fox loaded the car with the first part of the trug that he had built for Cousteau-Cub's birthday. He whizzed it ip to Chichester and the Coventry Hobbit helped him unload it into the garden. He then returned home to get the second part - the frame and legs. Back again to Chichester we soon had it unloaded and assembled. The final screws we put in to secure it and it now sits happily at the bottom of their garden. Cousteau-Cub seemed delighted - so job done!
We are meeting Cousteau-Cub and the Coventry Hobbit for dinner this evening at a new Thai restaurant in Chichester.
