This evening we are relaxing after the first four days of the Croquet Tournament. Tomorrow is a rest day and then there's another four days. However tomorrow is also the Club's Association Croquet afternoon so if the weather is a wonderful as today we'll probably be on the lawns for a little relaxation - gluttons for punishment.
The down and the oops was what happened to my HTC Smartphone. I slipped it into my gilet pocket whilst I popped to the loo. Yes, you've guessed it. That was yesterday morning. It's sitting in a bowl of rice at the moment. In a few days I'll see if it has survived. If not, I'm hoping that I'm insured for such accidents.
Mike, friend from Gisborne who is staying with me during the tournament, won the Open on the first two days. I won the Handicap over the last two days. So between us we are celebrating this evening.
The cup that I won has been on the go for 52 years - since 1959. It's possibly the ugliest trophy I've ever won but it's certainly the most physically impressive.
