Footballers’ mothers

This may be the last time I bother with the after-school football club. Xavier has a very jaded attitude to the game and seems to spend most of the time lying down on the pitch – possibly thinking of new inventions, or alternatively devising interesting mischievous diversions from the boredom of kicking a ball around. I won’t miss the winter classes, even if the summer sessions are an enjoyable break for us parents.

The last time I went to the footie to supervise my youngest kid, he just ran off and played so I read a book. A long time ago. Geelong of course is footie-mad and the team is sometimes excellent, but do I care? Not too much.

Ah but Wendy you never had to face the hanging round waiting in the cold and gloom of a UK winter!
