I was sitting in the Study here in The Cottage trying to decide what I was thankful about which could be bloggable and which I hadn't already blogged about. Then an email came in with a comment which Jenny Woolf of An English Travel Writer had put on my post Home in New Zealand: The First Day Back in which she asked if Croquet was a popular game in New Zealand.
The answer in short, Jenny, is in the affirmative. I have just looked it up and I have mentioned croquet in 203 posts so far on this blog. But then I am rather addicted to it.
So today I am thankful for the huge part that croquet has played in my life over the last few years: for the friends I have made through it; the places I have seen travelling to tournaments; the hospitality I have enjoyed at tournaments; and the incredible personal satisfaction I have had playing such a wonderful game.
