Weeks! #49: work and play and things in between

2014-12-01 15.58.32Getting back to training meant I knew I would be hungry during the day. For once I actually had the time and foresight to prepare for that eventuality. Don’t be deceived however, most of the time I am not this organised.

2014-12-01 20.04.36As we have become tropical Canberra, the sunsets have become more and more impressive. And their is a lot of excellent cloud action.

2014-12-02 15.23.53There is nothing better than when your EA brings you a cupcake in the middle of the day.

2014-12-02 19.47.17Games night this week, we played some Munchkin which we hadn’t played in ages. Young Andrew beat us all.

2014-12-03 05.25.54Early morning flight to Melbourne – it was so pretty it was almost worth getting up that early. Almost.

2014-12-03 05.35.52But yes, time to get on another plane. Just a day trip this time.

2014-12-03 05.39.04Melbourne was a bit wet and trafficky though.

2014-12-03 08.28.36Zac got an award for being the best chess boy in years 1 and 2! Hooray Zac.

Thursday was a dark and stormy day. Here’s my office window view.


2014-12-04 17.02.51Didn’t stop the boys wanting to spend some time at the big oval playing French cricket (a small recent obsession).

2014-12-04 18.30.33James was away again Thursday night, so George knew well at whom he had to stare to get fed.

2014-12-04 19.19.06I got up the following morning for a ride. The lake is still as beautiful at that time as ever.

2014-12-05 07.24.03Back at Zac’s cricket in the afternoon.

The clouds were spectacular.

On Saturday I made it out to Sebastian’s cricket for the first time this season. I didn’t time it well. First, Sebastian got out for 1 (most of the season he has retired in the high 20s or 30s). Here he is looking forlorn post wicket.

2014-12-06 09.20.45Then, after one ball of the opposition’s innings, it began bucketing down and the game was abandoned, so I missed seeing him wicket keep as well.

2014-12-06 10.52.27Oh well, at least skating was indoors.

I love this art at CIT.

We also had some table top D&D action while trying to take over a castle.

Sunday morning everyone was up early to watch Australia play at the roller derby world cup. I must admit, I was too tired to get up at 2am to watch Australia win by enormous margins, but the game versus New Zealand was worth being up at 8am on a Sunday. Even George joined us to watch.

2014-12-07 08.28.42And then in the afternoon it was off to our own derby training. I was a bit hot and exhausted after scrim. But happy.
