Sport Sport Sport!

I've been outside all day.  And its been really exhausting and great at the same time.  First up I had a speed session as part of my half-marathon training plan.   It was short but painful.  6 minutes hard running, 2 minutes recovery, 4 minutes hard, 2 minutes recovery, 2 minutes hard, 2 minutes recovery.  Today I managed to get a shot of the moon which wasn't quite as stunning as yesterday but still beautiful.

Then I was on 'transport duty' for my eldest son's cricket match.  It was a perfect day for watching (and playing!) cricket.  And I was so proud of my son - he opened the batting order and did quite well - a total of 10 runs including a 4 before he was run out.  The highlight was during his 1 over of bowling - he bowled 2 people out in 1 over!  Seeing (and hearing) those bails go flying while watching your treasured one bowl is an awesome feeling.  Cricket means alot to my son and I just felt so happy for him.  All his hard work is paying off.  They won the game and are through to the next round of the knock-out competition.

Then it was the twins' first ever club soccer training.  It was nerve-wracking and I couldn't have done it without my husband.  T1 was perfect and he loves playing soccer.  T2 was up and down.  There were a few tears here and there but he managed to participate in a full hour of soccer training in the hot sun.  We are going to get him to do a little practise between trainings and hopefully by game time he will be fine.

2 years ago I never thought that the twins would be able to participate in club soccer.  Correction - 12 months ago I didn't think they would ever play club soccer.  Never underestimate kids on the Spectrum.

Now I'm collapsed on the lounge but I'm committed to going out to our local Thai, Star of Thailand,  for dinner.  We've been talking about it for a few days now.  It time for a date night.  Besides, I think we've earned some curry puffs and a stir-fry after today!
Curry puffs - yum.  Photo a little dark as we were out on the balcony

Sizzling Seafood - minus muscles

satay chicken and veges

 We ended up getting all the foods our kids are allergic to - prawns, peanuts...ahhh...the good old days.  Must remember not to kiss the kids tonight!


  1. Just reading about that speedy running makes me feel fitter! Great to hear about the boys' soccer... I sat in the back seat of my son's driving lesson yesterday - can't believe it!

  2. That's amazing. I remember reading about it on your blog. That's really amazing, what a great achievement. Best of luck to him. I can't imagine the twins driving. I know T1 will get there but I've learnt not to underestimate T2. I know who to come to for advice in 10 years!
