Lost again

Ho hum, another defeat last night, the final score being the same as last week, 5 points to 9.
It wasn’t quite such a fun night though, with the opposition keeping very much to themselves and nobody taking much of an interest in the games as they were played.
I find this a shame actually, as part of the pleasure was knowing your team were behind you, not talking about a £42 chinese takeaway for two, or someone’s love life via twitter or FB.
I was paired with the team captain this week, and although we lost 3 – 0, we had some pretty decent scores. However, the guy we were against hardly missed the treble 20 every throw, and it’s hard to compete against that. He knew he was good too.
Our next pair redeemed us by winning their matches 3 – 0, so we were even.

The raffle tickets were now doing the rounds, so I started putting the counterfoils in the hat. I think I upset someone as apparently I was doing it wrong (is there a right way to fold them?) but she was playing her game, so I thought I’d help out. Loads were sold (over 200 in strips of 5) so it was a bit fiddly and my hands didn’t exactly make me quick, so someone came to help me. Funny that, he was tearing them off the way I would have done it as it was easier and quicker. We live and learn.

Next game was 2 – 1 to them and the final pairs another 3 – 0 loss.
I chalked the 1001 down for the guys as our man who’d had the best score of the night at 140, had to go home because he had a splitting headache. Luckily, we had 5 ladies and 5 men turn up so we had a team anyway as you can play reserves in the gallon matches.
The guys got the winning double first and our last point of the evening.
Us ladies didn’t do too badly, then the visitors came back with four high scores in a row to leave a final double, and we didn’t get the chance at ours.

We’re ‘away’ for the next two matches, same place actually, but their A and B teams, then there’s a Fours knock out the week after. Following that, we begin the second half of the league fixtures being away to the first team we played. We aren’t ‘home again’ now until 3rd July.

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.
