Supporting and Sporting


Queensmead Sports Stadium where the Inter-House Junior Hockey Tournaments were held.


Launching out on a 6-length freestyle exercise.


J completes it after lapping some of her fellow students.

I slept in today,
Then breakfast created,
Before on my way
(Now feeling quite sated),

A pump for the fountain
I bought while en route,
(In evening the mountin’
To bear needed fruit)

But Queensmead first went to —
J ‘sticks’,-inter-house —
Saw her scoring goal do,
So I couldn’t grouse,

At having to leave
To fetch R from her squad
And, would you believe,
Back to hockey then plod,

Home; then J to Swim School
Where she duly shone,
Then hunted the right tool
Pump for statue put on,

And then did repair,
Of a hole in tiled floor,
Before I could dare
Grub and blogging to score.

    The girls outshone the rest as usual, and you must have been exhausted.
