Ensuring A Bit Of Me Time



It is wall to wall sport I have to report in this house , football and rugby and come summer there will be cricket , if there was international tiddly winks I am pretty sure that would be on the television as well . Don't get me wrong I do like sport but when on occasion it feels like an episode of 24 , though if Kiefler Sutherland was to appear I might perk up.

The sports 'widow ' aspect doesn't just stop there as my husband is secretary for the football team and also for the rugby team , and many an evening I'll find a football manager on my doorstep needing a form, not Aresene Wenger not just yet !


Then there is the washing of the kit , football , rugby and ooh do do much mud , my son has on occasion washed his own boots and I probably do it more than he does but I'm not fussed he's a good boy. He never gets into trouble and to and I will miss the sport and mud when he is at university but don't tell him that!


Mmmm miss the mud ....



My son is very good at his sport , in the past he has had football trails but it is a very competitive world so he is now just content with playing sport and so much so he is studying GCSE sport at school and wishes to have a career in sport. He had thought about teaching but now he is thinking of going to university after A levels to study sports science , perhaps some of that will involve how to get mud stains out of football and rugby kits!!





Even the cat ' Jack Black ' has got in on a bit of me time , he isn't allowed to sit on the new sofa and is trained to go to his box. His old box to be honest was a bit of a hovel but what with moving being quite awkward at the minute due to a volatile housing market it seemed impossible. Thankfully I was able to gift the box in which the Pamper Parcels items came in to Jack. So he has gone from hovel to penthouse in one fell swoop.




Mr T is an avid Derby County fan and apparently uttering the words:

"Will there be any more goals?"

Will cause the  opposition to score , Ooops sorry Mr T and Derby County FC and they were playing the deadly rivals Nottingham Forest , double ooops !

When I go to watch my son play sport always make sure I make good use of my time whilst my son is warming up before the watch and my husband is nattering to the other dads about football ,rugby etc. I go and take pictures that is another part of my making sure I have have me time and I go and take pictures , I love my countryside landscapes and it is a subject I have become known for and  I go awfully shy when they tell me that I am good. I made sure that I had my Burts Bee lip balm that came in my Pamper Parcels box to protect my lips from the elements , there is nothing worse than having chapped lips I tell you.



Sport will always be part of this family in some way or the other , we are off to Washington DC in August and I hope we can catch some American sports when we are out there , and I bet my husband and son will get competitive in the pool as well. I will of course be escaping for that essential bit of me time.

Disclosure Thank you to Betfair and Pamper Parcels for the opportunity to have a bit of me time.

  2. That is some impressive mud! My house is sport crazy, but I'm lucky it doesn't involve mud as here in France my boys play handball (always indoors), tennis and a weird one called pelote (kind of like outdoor squash...sort of...not really)!!

  7. I don't envy you in the slightest! I'm quite glad my OH is into music rather than sport - much less messy - and it seems my son is following in his Dad's footsteps!

  12. One good thing about having a husband that doesn't like football is that i don't have to deal with what you have up there!

  20. LOL Been there, washed the muddy t shirts, wee, cricket kits and rugby strips in our case. At one time, hubs (ex) and the two lads were playing cricket. I was ankles deep in muddy kit! In those days I could drink wine and eat chocolate...*sighs*
    Me time is VITAL, I say, VITAL for your well being and by that I mean sanity. x
