More mad dogs...

Another cracking day. Wall to wall sunshine and temperature hovering around the 30c mark. The Gorse Fox almost feels sorry (note quite, but almost) for people who have gone abroad for their summer holiday.

The Silver Vixen had a busy day scheduled so skipped her normal Pilates. The Gorse Fox headed off to Worthing for his football. We had a good turn out and managed a 6-v-7 game with the odd number transferring between the teams at half time. The Gorse Fox was playing for the yellow bibs today and, for a change, the sides looked pretty equal. It was going to be a good hour.

Well so it turned out. There were a few niggles as people got a little fractious in the heat, but essentially it was played in good spirit. Our yellow team were 3-0 by half time. As the second half began, the orange bibs score with a long range shot that caught our goalie napping. Even though the Gorse Fox was playing sweeper he couldn't stop it as we are not allowed to head the ball. As we kicked off the ball came back to the Gorse Fox and he ranged forward through the middle. He crossed the halfway line and saw the pitch open up. Head down he hit the ball, it crashed into the goalie who fumbled it over his shoulder and into the net. It was now 4-1. By the end of the game the score had inched forward. Oranges had scored 2 more, and so had we. 6-3 seemed like a good result in the heat.

Back home the Silver Vixen and the Gorse Fox had some lunch before she had to head into Chichester. The Gorse Fox has spent much of the afternoon sorting out the order for the timber needed for the window seat for Urban-Cub. The order has been submitted and he is awaiting a call back to confirm the price and when it can be delivered.

He's also been chasing some information from a supplier of glass shelf illuminated clips. The company seems to have a huge range and they explain that with the clips you need a driver unit and switch and some cable. Unfortunately they don't provide the part numbers for these units and their website shows a very wide choice. We'll see what they recommend.
