Wake Me Up When September Ends
We understand it has been a while and you have been dying from our lacks of updates. I know. It’s hard so you can come out of your cave now and embrace us because, we are back.. for a while anyway.
Where did we go, you ask? Everywhere and nowhere in particular. Jill still doesn’t have the Interwebs and she still cannot post or re-blog because Tumblr hates her.
And me? Well, come sit around me because I have a story to tell. It all began with busy social life and having no inspiration to post about anything funny at all, because it’s really exhausting talking to people like, all the time. (Don’t worry, we love you).
In all seriousness, I went on holiday so I didn’t have time to post. As you are aware, I am a dodgeball Athlete and once again was honoured with representing Northern Ireland for Dodgeball and this year, it was staged in Vienna, Austria. So that is where I was and it was amazing. I’m so proud to be part of this dodgeball community and everyone is so amazing and accepting. Therefore, it breaks my heart to announce that I will be retiring from International dodgeball as I cannot continue at national level because of my dodgy shoulder. One too many injuries to the shoulder had completely condemned me to not being able to throw a ball. In dodgeball, it’s pretty much a big deal. With this injury, I had to re-work my tactics and learn how to catch a fast pace ball and it was not easy. I’ve never caught a ball in a tournament. Fact. But during this Euro Championship, I caught many balls and I’m so happy that I did my team proud.
I don’t want to bore you with details because really, I have achieved so much in dodgeball in such a small space of time and I couldn’t be happier. I’m in talks with the doctors for some surgery and depending in how that goes, who knows, maybe I can get back to that level :)
By the way, go to Vienna, it is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever visited. Plus, there is so much history and it so full of awesome :)
In the meantime, I endeavour to spend as much time as possible with Jill (wink wink nudge nudge) because we have stories to write, alcohol to be drank and non-funny jokes to laugh about.
Ciao! (that means goodbye in cat)
