Great weather for ducks

But not really for Cross Country!  



I wanted to say that it was the coldest day this year because that’s what it felt like but when I checked the BOM website just now I discovered it DID get to a tropical 14.1 degrees last Wednesday and that’s not as chilly as a couple of other June days we’ve had.  But believe me when you are standing out in the rain and wind  and MUD at Bundoora Park for about 3 hours watching the Zone Cross Country it feels like it’s the coldest day of the year.  And I had about 6 layers on so I can only imagine how daugher No. 1 and the other 4 from her school and the other 600 odd children felt like in their shorts and t-shirts.  Still I was really proud of her and her friends and wouldn’t have missed it.



(Certainly could have done without the muddy clothes to wash though – and if the organisers could try to arrange it on a SUNNY day next year it would be much appreciated….)

    It just wouldn’t be the same without a little mud ….. but then my son was severely anti-sports at school, so I never had muddy kit to wash!!

    Awww, DD1 looks so cute — even with all the mud! I miss freezing to death at sporting events — soak them all up while you can!
