Today, I have been wearing The Precious all day for the first time.
In truth, this is only the second time I’ve worn it, the first being for the darts team’s Christmas meal (you can read how I got on here)
I’ve said in previous posts that I am confident with or without it, but the question arose last night about my aim being off without it and thus potentially hindering my game, so I thought tonight I’d give it a try, kinda like a secret weapon LOL.
No hydraulics this time as I’m wearing one of the new ‘pocket’ bras and it’s really comfortable. With a full shelf on my chest I’ve had somewhere to rest my dinner plate, and everything looks and feels natural.
Hubby hasn’t said anything and I wonder if he’s noticed, but he’s not worried one way or the other either as long as I’m OK and not overdoing things.
We’ve had some practice games in the hall, 301 down, double in double out, and they were quick games as I didn’t mess about with my doubles! I won two games to one, but noticed I’ve upped my pace. I always used to play a fast game.
The team we’re playing tonight are the current division leaders I believe.
At the end of the season, the top two teams go up to division one, and the bottom two of division one come into division two. This team were in division one last year.
I’ve also got to put the names in for the singles knockout on February 11th. I’m in two minds whether to play, but I will go as chalker because the team can be fined if we don’t supply one. Most of the players on any team aren’t that good at adding up or taking away for that matter and there have been complaints about calculators on mobile phones being used to score which has put players off. A couple on my team are happy to chalk on our own matches, but not in a tournament.
No wishing to blow my own trumpet, but I appear to be one of the few who
a) don’t mind chalking anyway
b) can add up and take away quickly
c) prefer an old fashioned chalk board to an electronic one.
I only hope wherever the venue is that the chalk writes on the boards provided.
At the mixed pairs last time, the last game I marked before I folded was a nightmare as the chalk and board were incompatible.
I’ll be back later to update how I got on and our score. Would be nice to get a few points tonight.
Here I am:
The girls played better than they have for a while, but we lost 11 points to 1. The other team are very good, but we kept up and got down to a double each game, so it could have gone either way.
I was pleased with my games though, so maybe The Precious is going to be part of my outfit each week.
The names are in for the singles. Three of the team are going in and I’m going for support and chalker, but won’t be playing. It’s not clear where the venue is yet, so hopefully we’ll find out next week.
I’m tired, but not exhausted, so I’m feeling really good at the moment.
