Day 2 of no bowling

Another nice evening and again with Michelle's help I dragged the boys out and over to our field. Joe came willingly, but Ben would have rather stayed in and watched Top Gear all night despite the glorious sunshine and the opportunity to have a bowl and a bat.

It went okay Ben bowled a bit wayward but when he was on target he was good varying his speed and approach. Joe similarly bowled okay far more consistently than Ben and batted for a while too. Ben set a phone to go off after 1/2 hour and then went home, just as a bunch of 16-17 year olds turned up and joined in. Little Joe batted against these blokes using a 4;3/4oz ball with no helmet, box or pads just a pair of gloves and did alright.

Despite the temptation I resisted bowling and had a bit of a bat and kept wicket too.
On the subject of my arm a mate of mine on Facebook reckons that the injury will just suddenly disappear if I rest it... 'You'll just wake up one morning and it'll be gone'. He claims?
