The young man plays cricket. Sometimes, they call him up to play with the big boys of the senior team. He still likes us to go and watch him, and I still enjoy being there to see him take a catch etc, but it can be an endurance test when I have to go on my own when hubby is working.
Sitting in a field in all weathers from noon until around 7.30pm on my own, requires a survival kit. This week I took:
Large flask, a magazine, a book, embroidery, suncream, lipsalve, a sun top, a fleecey top, a padded coat, combat trousers that could be rolled up - or down, kagoul, umberella, snacks, chair, blanket, sunglasses, "readers" and thick padded coat.
