Rugby – Our #WOTW 

By | August 18, 2017

It’s an unexpected word to sum up our week today, not a word I’d thought I’d use, being a pre-dominantly footie (well 50% anyway) family.

You might have thought my word would be hospital as I had a quite lengthy pre-op on Tuesday and because the first of my rectifying feet operations is on Monday, or Music as D has been singing and whistling a particular song for much of the week, when she’s not been talking about Rugby, that is.

ITV4 have been screening matches from the women’s World Cup and D has really got into it!

She asked to watch an England match and I thought “yay, new  experience” etc and she loved it.

I’ve had to (quickly) google answers to questions like “how long is each half”, “why is there a time in a yellow box under one country?”, “what’s a goal called?” and “what’s a scrum”?  She’s been very interested.

It’s also made her laugh as well when the players have been tackling each other, she’s called it “cat fighting” and it must be quite strange for her to see the players doing things that PE staff would have told her class not to do i.e. play nicely, don’t grab each other, don’t “fight” and definitely don’t run into each other on purpose.

D has always shied away from contact sports at school, especially if it’s an inter-house tournament with larger, older children playing against her but…..she said yesterday that she might…..just might… to give rugby a try sometime, although I imagine on the actual day it would make her extremely nervous.

I think I’ll have to look out if there are any local ladies teams that we can go and watch sometime, once my operations are over, that is.

How’s your week been?

Sending healing thoughts after your op. x How lovely that D has found something new to be interested in. I had never taken any interest in rugby until my hubby got me watching one of the world cups (not women’s.) I thought the game was really quite thrilling to watch, much more interesting than football. Unfortunately, hubby is not really that keen on Rugby and we haven’t watched much since.

My brother was a rugby player and so our house was always rugby mad when we were growing up! Thanks so much for sharing with #Blogstravaganza xx
