Muddied Oafs

I had to get up in the middle of the night to take the Bomber to school. Football and rugby teams from a combined year 8 and 9 squad are off to Italy on tour and the coach left at quarter to four in the morning. They are flying into Milan and staying somewhere around Lake Garda. I have asked him to say hello to George Clooney for me.

We also found out yesterday that he hadn't made the cut for the Surrey U13 Development squad. When I look at some of the kids who did (entre nous) I am frankly amazed, but them's the breaks I s'pose. They switched him from full back to centre (a position he hasn't spent a lot of time at) in the assessment.Could that have contributed to a sub-par showing?

He did play the whole game on the wing for Year 9 (he's in Year 8) for the school in the County Cup final last weekend, but they were narrowly beaten.

Perhaps it is good after a couple of disappointments for him to get away with the lads for a week of sport and high jinks? My faith in him is undimmed, for what it is worth.
