Gloom – Sat 24th Oct 2015

By | October 24, 2015

The above could just sum up our day today, both from a physical (rubbish weather) and emotional viewpoint.

T isn’t enjoying his football at the moment.  It was always going to take time, him settling into a new team and getting to know new players and them him, it’s very much a two-way thing (as we tell him).  He’s getting frustrated with it all and, as football is such a big part (understatement of his life) it’s not great to see.   
We make suggestions and he doesn’t appreciate them – maybe because it’s us, maybe because we’re ancient and don’t know what we’re talking about (oh yes, I remember being a pre-teen and thinking that!).  T won’t say it, but you can tell he has those thoughts!! 

The storm clouds not only gathered, but settled, over our house today and it’s had an impact.  He’s got cross and frustrated, D’s been tearful and I’ve felt unhappy about it too and told them – which sent D off in tears a couple of times.

Hopefully tomorrow will see some sunshine, both inside the house and externally.
