Well, we managed a 2-1 victory in our Sunday league match yesterday, despite playing for almost half the match with only 10 players. So, tough on the legs but a pleasing outcome, the next match comes around on December 5th.

Our trip to Cardiff on Saturday was interesting. My side of the family are not very good at keeping in touch, so this was probably the first time in over 25 years that my mum and I had been in the same room as her sister and my cousin Robert. After the initial “What are you doing now” type conversations, Orynthia and I were entertained with stories of life in the welsh valleys around the time of the Second World War. Without doubt by any modern levels by mothers family grew up living well below the poverty line, yet in those pre TV days, they said that they remained blissfully unaware of the fact. Virtually everyone they knew lived in the same fiscally challenged way, so they assumed that life was just like that. Not such a bad state of mind in comparison to the thrust for material things, which engulfs families today.
