480. Sunday 6th March 2016. Visitors, Tai Chi and a rugby league game…

Monday 29th February

It has been a quiet week.

I am slowly reducing my medication, Lyrica 300 Mg twice a day to 75 Mg twice a day. The reduction has not been totally without some form of withdrawal. Therefore a quiet week means I can relax a bit.

Good friends Tony and Dawn arrive from Port MacQuarie. We spend the next few hours catching up with each others lives. They also felt like having a quiet stay so that suited all of us. They stayed for two days before leaving to attend a funeral in Toowoomba.

By Saturday they arrived back and wanting just to have a few quiet days with us. The came with us when we went to Tai Chi on Friday and joined Donnis for a swim at the Labrador lagoon while I flew my kite.

Sunday 6th March

Donnis and I drove to Brisbane to watch grandson Chris play his second game of Rugby League. Chris mum Regelyn and his other grandmother  Evangeline also helped cheer on the team.

The excited spectators Evangeline, Regelyn and Donnis.

Actually we all offered quiet dignified support. There is a sign when entering the field which basically states that this is just a game, the children are just children playing a game, there is no wagering, no shouting screaming or abusing. The sports officials are all volunteers. We are all asked to support the teams in a dignified way. Some parents shouted encouragement but it was nice not to see aggressive parents running along the sideline screaming at the children or the referee.

It was good to see Chris take the field this week with his mouthguard and Jonathon Thurston head guard. The head guard has minimal padding but is much better than no protection. Jonathon Thurston never plays a game without his headgear and he is the best player in the world. He is a great role model for the children - boys as well as girls.
