6 for 13 off 6 overs

Ha! Now if you're from the US (like most bloggers seem to be) and not from an English good 'ole Commonwealth country, you will have no idea what that means! If you ARE from an English good 'ole Commonwealth country and follow cricket, you will know that those are darn good bowling figures! We went up to Wanganui for the day to watch Cameron and his team play two of their games in their annual tournament ... and those were Cam's bowling figures from the first game ...woohoooo, go Cam! He's wanted a five cricket bag for a while, he has had a couple, but I don't think he did at all last season, as the kids get older the batting gets tighter and it gets harder. So, we had a good day! Two wins to the boys, which is great, they are the Horowhenua/Kapiti rep team, and have very little numbers to pick from compared to the bigger Manawatu, Taranaki, Hawkes Bay etc ... they had an awesome season last year winning nearly everything, and looks they're still on track this year ... really nice bunch of boys too which is always nice (nice when you can say that about a bunch of 14yos!).

So anyway, on to the quick running update for the day - just a 5km on the training programme today, I was up at 6.30am, out the house by 6.45 and home after 27:50min!


  1. Thank you for your comment and for reading the Tall Mom Blog :)

    FYI I will not put the pink merino wool in the dryer and I editted my Blog post.. I think I scared a lot of people. It is jsut hard to remember to pull special items out of the dryer. Living in rainy Washington outside clothes hagers are uncommon..

    Wow 3 months and 2 weeks to London. AMAZING!! That is on my list of Stretch goals for the next 5-10 years.

  2. Ha! Glad you explained your blog title because I had NO idea what it meant!

    Good luck with your training this year... "London" will be here before you know it!! It sounds like you're doing fantastic!!
