It was a gorgeous day. Not a cloud dared show itself to sully the deep blue of the sky.
The Gorse Fox wandered round to meet Urban-Cub and walk Ellie to Dizzy Ducklings. She was beside herself with excitement to be back and see her friends.
As soon at the Gorse Fox got home he did a quick change and headed off to Worthing for football. The team choice was little lop-sided, but for once, it was in the Gorse Fox's favour. He was playing on a team with 4 recognised attackers and found that marshalling the back was a relatively easy job. The Gorse Fox didn't feel that he played particularly well, but we managed a 4-0 win in the first game and a 6-0 win in the second. In the second game, the Gorse Fox actually played in goal for half the match. On the pitch behind us a coterie of yummy mummies were having a yoga session. As the session wound down and it was time for them to relax, the music was changed to "New Age" sounds and the leader of the session led them through the relaxation and wind down. During a break in the football the Gorse Fox pointed out that she was lulling him to sleep.
Back home, we had a quiet lunch and then went to collect Ellie from Dizzy Ducklings. By now, we had seen the list of children from DD that would be going to Bartons in September. There were quite a few and fortunately that included most of Ellie's friends.
As we wandered back, with Bonnie, and her mum and sister we made our way into the field and the girls played on the carved tractor while we stood and chatted.
The rest of the afternoon has been the usual mix of playing (this included a pretend picnic in the lounge), dinner, and then the wind down to bed. As the Gorse Fox writes this, Ellie is in bed watching 10 (timed) minutes of YouTube for kids, and then that'll be it.
