Normality returns…

Football fever is over, for the time being. With England’s elimination, the public can go back to living their daily lives with a sense of normality again. It was an exciting few weeks and it’s not until 2020 when we may experience those highs again.Today has been fairly quiet for me. No cricket involvement for me today, though I have picked up an umpiring appointment in 10 days time, just for a bloke I know who plays for a local club. It’ll be game on a par with the other day, a relaxed affair with plenty of laughs and beers afterwards. Delighted to be asked to participate. It was Peer Support day and it was a quiet day at the ranch today as all the staff had gone on a business awayday. We were left to our own devices and ran the group as we normally do. We broke from the normal routine to do some learning and educating about what triggers our mental illnesses and what damage that can cause to our physical health. A very good session.A few of us then adjourned to the pub to have some lunch and relax. Just a quietish day after being at cricket the last three days. It’s about getting that balance and keeping all the things I enjoy at an equidistant range. If I did just one activity for the whole seven days, I would go stir crazy. Weather today? Nice and comfortable. We’ve lost that oppressive heat and humidity which saps us of our energy. Warm but pleasant. A.S.D Brooks
