Knock about

Have just got back from a darts meeting regarding the Summer League for which I have signed on but don’t expect to play every week as for once they seem to have a surplus of players! Each team consists of 4 men and 4 women, and you play mixed pairs (best of three) and then the guys play 1001 down and the ladies 701 down.

After electing a Captain and Treasurer, our captain paired us up randomly and we had a knock about tournament.
Only one dart went haywire from yours truly, and we won………… all of it!
Yep. I got the winning doubles on our first matches, and my partner got the winner for the final!

I’ve come home feeling quite chuffed with myself, especially as I got all my fines back from the winter league (£5.90, so 59 scores of less than 20) and A TROPHY!
Hurrah! Our team got a trophy on presentation night, a neat little star with “Bottom of Division 2” on it. Do we care being bottom? Not on your nellie.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Sounds like you’re having a great time and well done! 😀

    • the summer league is slightly different being a mixed team, but they seem a good crowd and we had some laughs. I’m looking forward to playing and intend to get some heavier darts now.
