By Order of the Photo Challenge


Here in Order, but completely out of order, are the sorted trophies from an Easter Egg hunt. Enough to cause serious internal disorder, but they look attractive!

I have been kept in order just recently by being ordered to do lots of grandfatherly things. Like attending junior swimming school prizegiving, where R got the cup for Best Girl Swimmer as her last accolade there — she is now moving up to a more senior level.

Her young sister J joined the medal winners by doing her 100-metre swim, and got a silver badge.

Still on swimming, J and friend ordered me to take them to the local Olympic pool, even though the weather wasn’t exactly warm. This didn’t worry them; nor did the fact that they had the pool completely to themselves. The rest of a fairly large local population chickened out completely. Myself included.

Her proud grandparents also attended an ‘away’ netball fixture where R played four games.  Here she is shooting one of her three goals.
