Good evening. The perfect summer day today. Except that the plans I was due to be undertaking this evening were cancelled without my knowledge. So I’m not a happy bunny.
This is where one of my umpiring mates comes to the rescue with wise words to stop me losing my temper totally. In the past, possibly today’s events and what happened earlier in the season might have seen me walk away and the rest of the season would have been forgotten.
But I’m better than that. I’m not going to walk away, and will continue enjoying the cricket season and the good has far outweighed the bad so far. It will always niggle at the back of my mind, but I owe it to the people who support me to continue and for me to give 100% support back and not allow the negativity to get in the way. Am I mellowing? No, but it’s important to stay in the moment and look forward to the next game.
And this post has been diplomatic. I think if I had have lost my temper, I could have written and said some things that could have got me into trouble. I shall make my observations known to the relevant people, and do it the proper way. Also, I got a warning the other week about being stressed with an evening at the local hospital with chest pains. Got to think of my own health too.
Wipe today from the mind and enjoy volunteering tomorrow, cricket Saturday and Sunday. Look forward, not fester on things.
