Yesterday was Sunday. Sunday is the day when I watch my three little men play rugby.
Sunday 15 September 2013 11.15am
I stand between two pitches.....shivering. There were blue skies this morning, I should have known better it's always very windy up on these top pitches. I must remember to sort out my hat, the one with the pompoms that my mum brought me, it covers my ears (you can laugh....but I can't bear the pain the cold wind has on my ears). I look at my feet and wish I had hooked out my snow boots. What has happened to the weather, it feels like someone has flicked a switch and turned Summer into Autumn overnight. Only last week I was still in my flip flops and now I'm thinking about my thermals..Brrrr.

My shivering stops as J runs over to the sideline and takes his weather proof training top off. I am in shock. He never takes his training top off! His cheeks are flushed. His big smile reveals his green gum shield. He runs back. I think it must be because their new coach has kept them moving all morning. I look at my watch and think about
walking hobbling over to watch S for a while.
It doesn't take long for S to see me standing at the sidelines. He's in the middle of a training game and the other side have scored a try. He walks back to the centre. Looks over. Gives me the thumbs up. His pink (yes pink!) gum shield showing as he smiles.
I watch him play..... and think about my telephone conversation with my husband this morning.....He is with H who is also training away today. His session will possibly be the toughest one he's had so far. Brutal is the word that springs to mind from our conversation. Brutal....!!......oh my....
Thank you to alexa for suggesting we take a moment or two.
P.S. H came home in one piece....phew! :)
