Captain of the team

Earlier this week the Juniorette had the plaster removed from her broken arm. The X-ray was good but the doctors decided she has to wear a splint for the next 10 days. Once this is removed she can start some light swimming, but no vigorous swim training for should be attempted for a while. The doctors also said she should not play football for a couple of months. Hopefully she can start some light training with the girl's team in a few weeks, but competitive games with the boy's team that she plays for will have to wait until her arm is 100% again.

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

My birthday hat got another outing this week, as I clocked up another run on my personal cricket innings. I now stand at 47 not out. My birthday hat has been in use now for seven years, and just gets updated every year. I had to work on my birthday this year, but I'll celebrate it quietly this weekend with Mrs H and the Juniorette.
