Double digits...

Friday morning I walked Hodge before we headed off to Wodonga…

we picked up a few caches on the way before checking into our accommodation just after 1:30pm…

after we’d unloaded the car we headed off to do a few more caches before picking up squiggle from school…

then it was another cache before we had afternoon tea in Albury…a couple more caches then back to squiggle’s house to get her clothes for the night and next day…

we had dinner at Birrallee Tavern before having a nice night together…

Saturday was double digit day and we had breakfast before heading out for some more caching and a play at the big playground in Albury…

our time together came to an end all too soon as we had to have squiggle back by 12pm…she was having an indoor pool party with friends before having a couple of them for a sleep over…

we started the drive back to Canberra around 12:45pm and got home about 6:00pm after caching along the way, detouring into Thuroonga, Holbrook and Tarcutta…we stopped at Gundagai for a late lunch…

yesterday we played golf – first game for me in over a month…we both played 6 over our respective handicaps but it was a nice day to be out playing…

later in the afternoon we took both Hodge and Hunter for a walk…Hunter got to experience some time off lead in the outside world…Hodge was funny as he ran about heaps more – going between Hunter and us…Hunter got better at coming back when called especially when he got treated!

watched most of the ODI between Australia and Zimbabwe but went to bed when Zimbabwe was 5 down…I was not surprised to find out that they’d won…it wasn’t the best decision to play Michael Clarke and drop Steve Smith…

another late start this morning, Hodge got a quick walk before I rode to work…

squiggle...

was at a bit of a loose end with no footy training so started to catching up on some of my cricket stats work…

Wednesday was quite a pleasant morning for our walk…nice for the ride in too…

had physio in the afternoon…no ill-effects from Saturday’s game although it’s still not 100%...I am going to run the CTFR 14k but it won’t be a good time speed-wise…should be able to manage my own rehab from now on…

a better ride home although it was quite breezy…

I did the online scoring for the England/India ODI in Wales which started at 7:30pm and finished at about 3:20am this morning…India finished with 6/304 after being 2/19 in the 8th over…rain delayed England’s reply and they had to get 295 off 47 overs…they ended up being all out for 161 in the 39th over…

no walk for Hodge this morning nor did I ride in as I elected to sleep a bit longer before catching the bus…I will try to walk him after work…

got the day off tomorrow as we are going to Wodonga for squiggle’s 10th birthday (Saturday)…she’s staying with us tomorrow night before we take her back for her birthday party…
