Captain of the team
She is naturally disappointed about this, especially as she has missed the start of the football season. Her team is now in the E-Jugend, and now plays in a league rather then playing tournaments. But her spirits improved immensely when her team trainer told her that she is the captain of the team, even if she is out of the side injured for the foreseeable future. Personally I think it's a good decision for the team as she is a good defender, with a good overview of the game, and likes telling people what to do! :)

Slowly nearing the half century

She is doing well, and is reading a lot of Harry Potter (she is now on the 4th book), although she is missing swimming and playing football. She has adapted quite well to using her left hand; probably a lot better than me, if I broke my right arm. School starts again in a weeks time, so she has tried a few times to write with her left hand. Hopefully in 4-5 weeks time the plaster can be removed and life for her will get back to normal.

The football in Spain.......
The Juniorette did a PADI discover scuba dive which she very much enjoyed. I did the dive as well. It was good to get back underwater after a break of a few years, even if it was only to a max depth of 4m. The most important thing was to share the experience with the Juniorette, who now cannot wait until she is old enough to complete the PADI open water certification.
The weather was very good for our stay, and we had a lot of fun, but I have now discovered where all the bald/short haired, overweight, middle aged, tattooed English people go on holiday (and that was just the women – jest!). Beer at 10am may be fun when you are young and partying with the lads, but when you have a wife and kids, it’s just a little bit sad. That aside, everyone was friendly and we had a good time. I would like to visit the island again, but next time perhaps stay a bit further away from the main tourist areas.
It's a shame that Germany didn't beat Spain in the final of the European championships, as I might of been able to sleep that night. But in reality the German team didn’t play well, and the Spanish were better.

Still alive & kicking
Too much to do, and too little time to do it in.
I’ve just got to learn to manage my time a bit better, which I will do, and I will have to set aside some time for blogging, and if I don’t finish my garden projects this summer, it doesn’t really matter – there is always next year. The upside to all of this, is that I now get to see the Juniorette at all her sporting events, which really does make me quite happy.Above is a photo of the the Juniorette & I when we were both a bit younger!
