7:12am – Lying in the Castle of Penny

Just woke up and discovered a hickey on the inside of my groin…

7:02am – Lying in the Castle of Penny

Woke up to Mother Dearest on the phone to Grandma…

Mother Dearest: ‘Oh Mum, the internet is such a dangerous place. I just don’t know how it happened! One minute I was looking for poems about jungle animals for the children and the next minute, ELEPHANT PORN! EVERYWHERE!

Northern Netball League – Division 4 – 2014 

Lakeside 29 def Watsonia 20

Northern Netball League – Division 4 – 2014

Watsonia 43 def Lakeside 15

The Mighty Ducks. Miracle. Angels in the Outfield. Remember the Titans. The Rookie.

All good sporting movies start with a person or a team who are fumbling along, who are doubted, who have their challenges, who add a few people and lose a few to injury, and then who rise to the occasion only to fall over and just as you think all is lost, dig deep and find something more and eventually come out victorious. (And not just because everyone has paid $20 to see a movie that makes them feel warm and fuzzy) but because that’s how it works with teams who have the desire, talent and drive to win.
