On Saturday we travelled to Marton for Tim’s soccer game. Tim’s team was playing against Huntley. The school is set against farmland and has a picturesque vista of autumn colours at present. The sun was shining on our backs and the wind was non existant.
We were enjoying the game – Tim’s team was losing and then a couple of parents on the side lines became a little aggressive in their comments and calls. It is so unnecessary to barrack at children like that. They were losing but all were doing their best.
After the game a quick trip home and off to harriers. This week we were runing at Whitelocks near Colyton. The course has a brutal down hill and then a long up hill with a little steeper section just as you near the top. Three laps later I was sixth on handicap ! A great way to spend an autumn Saturday.
