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.
