Or so the song goes. Back into officiating action today, with scoring being the order of the day for me. Back with my cricket club again, and it appears that they were pleased to see me….I hope.
The weather has been stunning the last two days, gloriously sunny and hot. But after getting burnt in Malta, I decided to take no chances today and sat in the shade. My mate umpired the game and it was a very decent game to watch. Intriguing and well matched, and it had an exciting finish. Our opposition were cruising to victory until good old fashioned panic set in and we won a narrow victory. No matter the standard, I always enjoy a hard fought and tense game, played in the right spirit of course, which today was.
Good to be back, and I was relaxed and seemed to enjoy it. Good to be back in familiar surroundings and with familiar people. Umpiring action tomorrow, scoring on Tuesday and back to umpiring next Saturday. The weather will be on the change as well, but mustn’t complain at 80F temperatures and clear blue skies for the Easter holidays.
Onwards and upwards…..
