The Allen Family was up bright and early again today and once Sam had had his obligatory marmite on toast it was off to the courts to watch Daddy play in the tennis play offs.
When getting Sam dressed to go he was insistent that he wanted to wear his pirate wellies, and I wish I had listened to him because when we got to the tennis centre he happily found a really disgusting looking puddle of mud and was not to be dissuaded from jumping right in. I guess it didn’t really matter though as soon the puddle wasn’t restricted to his feet and he was having a good wallow. I gave up trying to keep him out of it at that point and let him have a great time splashing around.
Bill’s team played well against some tough competition and they’ve squeaked through to the next round. Bill had a good match and lots of people were complimentary about his game, but sadly he and Richard lost their match. Though, it was very tight and quite the three set epic.
The sun was brutal today and we sweltered without shade. All the matches were so competitive we didn’t leave the courts ’til three. I managed to keep Sam nicely slathered in sun screen and he still looks nicely English porcelain. I, on the other hand, obviously missed some spots and have some beautiful lobster going on. Drat.
Semi finals are tomorrow. Go Bill!
