Footy days.

 I find myself throwing myself into football more and more these days, I didn't grow up playing footy, but took it up when I was 24 and had moved to Sydney.  It's kind of weird really, Tassie is a big footy playing state, and NSW is a rugby league state and there's always competition between the two codes, but somehow I only ended up playing once I had moved.

 Do you ever feel like you have found a groove for yourself?  Something your actually not bad at!?  I grew up and was very uncoordinated and always took extra time trying to learn sports, I always had to do extra practice or sit back and watch a drill for awhile until I got it into my head what we were supposed to be doing.

I still have to sit back and watch some new drills for awhile, before I'm confident of what we're doing, but these days I have self confidence in myself on the field in actual games and really enjoy playing.

 Actually I'm not enjoying the backline a real lot!! :)  I guess you have to take the good and the bad and this year after making the grandfinal last year, we have had to start our team over again, with a lot of new players, in our first round out of the 22 from the grandfinal, we only ended up having 6 from that team.

If you get the chance, get down to your local park and have a look at the team going around, there's nothing quite like having a crowd to watch you play and they make you play that little extra hard.

I think that's crazy that I have had that many views on my blog, thanks family :)  It's actually pretty interesting to see where people are looking at it from around the world and wondering who they are and where they have come from.  A lot of people come from my Sisters blog after the last 6 months or so.

Actually I think it's to do with this guy who I miss very much and also to do with my nephew Noah who passed away  6 months ago now.

I've also been missing my Pop who I spent a lot of time growing up with.

Nan and Pop were such a great couple, they would do anything they could for you.

I woke up today and decided today would be a good day for me, I thought putting good thoughts straight into my head would help, work also helped with having a pretty easy day, so I actually got a lunch break at lunch time and so I went and had a walk along the rocks and sat awhile.
