The Hockey Match

I think the problem was because I wore trainers to play hockey on a grass pitch.  I fell over twice last year and slipped once this year.  This was of course in the mother and daughter s school hockey match.  So this was the second match that I had played since I left school, and  I was pretty stiff today.  It started raining just as play started and kept on raining for the rest of the day, and night, and was particularly ” wet” rain.  I did not score a goal against my daughter who was the goalie, much to her delight, but we all had fun and came in soaking wet ( after 15 minutes each way, the mothers  could not have managed much more ) to a delicious match tea.  Hanging wet coats and scarfs by the log fire in the hall.
