I have been following the World Cup football matches and so far (I write on 24 th) I have watched all of them live on television, all except one which I had recorded to watch later in the evening on Saturday. E and I had an evening at The Little Theatre in Southport to watch a young people’s dance academy’s presentation in which our granddaughter participated. It was held on two evenings, Friday and Saturday. The music was great and so were the dancers who ranged from about six to sixteen years of age with the older instructors taking stage in one or two of the routines. The theatre is run by The Southport Dramatic club and performances of music, drama and of course dancing are presented there throughout the year. It is a small theatre seating probably no more than five hundred people. For history click here http://www.littletheatresouthport.co.uk/history/ . Anyway we didn’t return home until late but nevertheless I watched the recording of the missed football match though I have to admit I speeded up the replay a few times when the play became pedestrian in parts. Today, that is Sunday, I am presently watching the second of the three daily televised games, Japan against Senegal (screenshot below as Japan draw level at 1-1) having seen England’s win against Panama, 6-1. After that match I spent an hour on the patio in the scorching heat of the day before returning indoors to see the next game. I had gotten up early and after breakfast spent an hour watering the front garden before spending time out in the rear garden just relaxing mainly. As I am writing this the first half of the current game has finished. I have fifteen minutes to make a coffee before the second half begins. Once this game has finished I have an hour before the next one begins. This has been the same pattern for my days over the last week or so, I do all my relaxing, exercising, going for walks, work, shopping and chores in the mornings and watch the football in the afternoon and early evening. It works for me as although the weather has been great these past few days I find I cannot sit out in it too long before I get bored. If I get bored I look for things to do and watching a few football games conveniently stops me from working! No doubt when the games are over the weather will change and get cooler and wetter……….that will be just fine for me.
