The Big Crash….

Morning, and it isn’t a good morning at all. I should be joyous and ready to face the day. The sun is shining, it’s hot again and I was due to go to cricket to do some scoring. Unfortunately though, I haven’t felt right since I woke up around 8.30 this morning. Had breakfast, and then just as I was starting to get ready, my brain was telling me not to bother today. Feel very flat and unenthused about the prospect of doing anything today. Whether it’s the week or the hot weather affecting me I don’t know, but I don’t want to go out of that door, at all.I was looking forward to doing some scoring and watching the football. It’s as though someone has put a large shroud over the brain and said “You’re staying in and not doing those things”. I’ve had to let the team and the umpire know that I won’t be on duty today. And no, I’ve not decided to be on duty today as it’s an important football match on. That has nothing to do with it. If the football was on at this precise moment, I wouldn’t be watching it or getting excited by it. I have these days from time to time, and they are what I call “temporary blips”. They last a day or two and then I’m ok again. Just need that rest today and reboot the mind for a game tomorrow and Monday. I’ll take decisions on those games on the day. I hope I can make it. The mind can be a funny thing and today it’s put up the shutters. Nothing would entice me out of the door today.So, it’s a day indoors with windows open and fan whirring around. Whether I’ll watch the football is open to question at this point. Just one of those days.A.S.D Brooks
