Whats happened since my last post

Got my first hole in one while playing golf. (woo-hoo!)

Drank too much wine

Got a little older

Got a new cell phone handset (mine broke)

Wished my wife, my mum, and HER mum a Happy Mothers day. (On Sunday we were at my parents for dinner, and there were four generations round the dinner table... my son, me, my mother and her mother.)

Decided (as a family) that Jake won't be playing for his Sunday football side anymore. (This deserves an explanation...
Basically we were all three of us sick of the fact the Jake didn't get enough time on the pitch, or enough encouragement from his manager. I am not one of those parents who thinks his son has a God given right to play more than any other child, but when my son isn't treated equally compared to others in his side, that I DO take exception to. It has made me sad, because Jake does like playing football, and to take him away from it hurts, but he understands why, and he was part of the decision making process. There are only four games left this season, so he won't be missing out much, and next year maybe we'll try a different team. I just couldn't stand by and let this go on anymore. This could have turned into a rant and I could be really angry and pissed off, but Im trying to be the bigger man. I wish his team all the best for the rest of the season, I really do. But my son comes first in my world.)

I will try and keep more up to date this week... have a nice Monday.
