A rainy day in today after a rainy day outing yesterday. My daughter and I braved the weather to watch the team my son coaches play rugby in Dargaville yesterday. We thought we'd dodged the rain as we didn't encounter any rain on the drive to Dargaville. but it was just waiting for us, big dark clouds rolling in from the sea.
I do so enjoy attending these games of no frills grassroots rugby. When I swore years ago that my days of trudging up and down the sideline in the rain were over, I didn't for one moment suspect that after 30 years or so I'd miss it. I have to admit thermal underwear is warmer now than it used to be - that definitely helps. I still haven't found the solution to keeping my feet warm, think there is an investment in boots in my near future.
