A Long Week

It has felt like a very long week; I had a Referees meeting in Leicester on Monday night, a PTA meeting on Tuesday night, a governor’s meeting on Wednesday night, I trained the Colts on Thursday night and officiated at the Rugby Club Firework’s display on Friday night. and on Saturday I agreed to referee Harborough versus Anstey. I was a little concerned that I would last the pace as I haven’t run at all since the summer holidays. But I was ok in the end, there were so many errors in play I was blowing the whistle regularly enough to recover in between plays. I would have struggled if the two sides had been better. That evening I relaxed by watching a video (Ghost Rider) then I went to bed. Sue woke me up at 10.00am with a coffee, but still exhausted I fell asleep again. Later I managed to paint a window before calling an end to my activities.
Sue has worked all week. One of the staff at Church Langton is off with a bereavement so Sue is covering. Annoyingly another school rang late asking for help on the one day she was free, heroically she went in. One evening she even attended a fire extinguisher course.  That night I made a very nice curry (if I say so myself), and even Jamie remarked on how good it was. Not surprisingly, Sue was too tired by Friday to go to the fireworks with Sarah and me and she had an early night.
Jamie is still with Lara. He went out on Saturday night to a nightclub in Northampton. He said he had a good time, but expensive! I don’t think he took Lara.
Sarah had an equally busy week starting with Mock GCSEs at the beginning of the week. She has studied hard for them and doesn’t seem worried, so I suppose that is a good sign. She also made curry at school and promised me that I could have some for tea on Friday night. But she ate it all herself!!!!!!! She did get an ‘A’ for it in class, I would have liked to have gauged it against the curry I had made on Thursday night.
Charlotte is still trying to sort out wedding plans for next summer. I believe she is going to see nan on Monday. Lucas is nearly walking; he only needs to hold one finger and he can totter a few steps. The nightmare will soon begin!
