It will be recalled how I boasted and bragged,
Till everyone tended to get sick and gagged,
At the fact that young J was current year’s champ
For moving at speed while immersed in the damp.
Today we attended her efforts to play
In matches at netball; four on the same day;
We’d only known name of her team in the school –
For that’s how identified there, as a rule.
But when against other schools called on to play,
They are given gradings, in the usual way:
That’s how we discovered that, far from the worst,
Our J is selected to play in the first!
Not only, then, is she best swimmer in grade,
But, also, at netball skills she has it made,
So, we are quite sure to be kept on the run,
Especially if, like today, her school has won!
We had a full day. First a visit to the urologist who was running late and kept us waiting for one and a half hours, and then a quick lunch of pies and coffee at the home of Sister-in Law before going to watch R doing squad swimming. We deserted this part of the way through for the netball matches.
No further progress was made on the swimming pool fix!
