Celebrating

I put on my new little black party dress* and went to the swim club Christmas party. A few vodka jellies, a little champagne, dinner and dancing 'til very late (early). Great fun! Look what they gave me. Me! Most Improved Swimmer! Me! We only have two trophies...the President's cup, for contribution to club spirit, and Most Improved. Me! Shucks, I wouldn't have done it without the encouragement, support, and friendship of my swimming buddies. Thanks. We were in the water at 8am this morning. Such dedication. The scrambled eggs were pretty good today!
*"Is it too little?" I asked my friend. "Don't be stupid", she said. "They see you in a swim suit at least 3 times a week". We got no secrets us swimmers, no secrets.

No. 2 son played cricket today and it was very exciting. They needed 6 runs, we needed 1 wicket to win. They got the runs before we got the wicket. A bunch of 10 year olds in their bright cricket whites, concentrating hard, encouraging each other, and putting their hearts into the game is a real joy to watch. Next I helped escort a bunch of 12 year old boys to a paint-ball birthday bash. No. 1 son has been friends with Duncan since they were both kindy boys aged 4. How cool is that? We're going to take Duncan out for dinner and to see a play in December. I'm looking forward to it. We've come a long way from pass the parcel!

I've tried and tried to get a 'clickable' photo of Sunny up here to no avail. I can't figure this out at all, at all.
