Views from a sitting position

But none of my sitting positions since my last post have been at my sewing machine ... which is a bit sad.

I spent a good couple of hours of Saturday with this view - footy season is on again. I don't quite understand Australian Rules football (or at least not the version played by the under-11s), especially now they're playing on a full-size field for the first time. Most of the game they seem to be specks in the distance doing strange and unco-ordinated things. I assume that one of them is my child, but they all look the same and I can't tell what they're meant to be doing.

The field is too big for the coach to yell instructions at them, like in a normal game (i.e. netball), so they send runners onto the field with messages. Now I'm no education professional, but the idea of sending a ten-year-old boy 50 metres with a message for another 10 year-old-boy is, perhaps, fundamentally flawed.

Luckily Sunday's view was more serene. This is me stretching my legs out as far as they could go and I still couldn't touch the seat in front of me!!! First time on this airline, and I think it's a keeper.


  1. I'm hoping that's an airline blanket and not some rather odd trousers that are wearing you ;-)

  2. Haha! You're right, that would be shocking, purple fleecy harem pants ... DEFINITELY a blanket.
