It was an interesting game tonight. First the ref didn't show up, leaving me and the other coach to share reffing duties. Then three quarters of the way through, the skies opened up. Since there was no ref to keep us playing in the downpour, and since we only had about ten minutes to go anyway, the other coach and I mutually decided to call the game and we all legged it.
The game itself went much better than last week. The kids did pretty well at the passing drills I ran for the practice, and were all mostly trying hard. Final result of the incomplete game: 1 - 2 for the other team. But hey, it was close! Also, Ros played in goal and really dug in. She let one goal in, but it was a beautiful kick that would have been hard to defeat. And otherwise she kept everything out, including some really tough shots. She's asked for goalie gloves, so I'll be off to the soccer store this week.
I spent a lovely weekend up at my mom's with Ros--the weather was gorgeous, so most of it was spent on the beach, building sandcastles and swimming--so I didn't get too much writing done, but I'm fast closing in on finishing my TT Big Bang story. Here's the official word count:
I'm hoping to finish it tomorrow, but as I'm off to see a documentary about The Who's Quadrophenia with a mate tomorrow night, I may not get that last thousand words done. Fingers crossed.
Once that one's done and dusted, it's back to Pros and zombies, which is coming along nicely:
That's a lot of words already down, but a lot still to go. I'm optimistically hoping to be done by the end of August. We'll see.
