Cricket, Warrandyte and Sewing!

 
Mitchell is playing in a 20/20 cricket competition in a team made up of his friends. The "Destroyers" played two matches on Sunday and had their butts kicked in both games! LOL! But their shirts looked great!
Mitchell looks pretty professional here, doesn't he!
 For once Mitchell had a smile on his face 
when he went out!
It was quite pleasant sitting in the shade watching them get whipped! Did I tell you they lost? LOL! Don't worry that I am upsetting anyone. No one has been offended in the team as they were all had a good laugh at themselves and said how bad they played themselves!
As many of you will know, Melbourne is in a heatwave. Monday night we went back to Warrandyte for the kids to have a swim. This is the tunnel at Pound Bend. You can float through the tunnel. See the empty tyre tube behind Mitchell? Nelson was supposed to be on it!
Here he comes, on foot!
Molly went into the deeper section and had her first proper swim. She looks older when she is wet. Today is a 41oC day (and the next two days too). We are heading down the beach for a picnic tea with some friends. It's so hot I may just put on the new bathers I bought yesterday and actually get in the water. Then again, maybe I won't! LOL!
 A sneak peek of some secret sewing.
 I've been playing with these and now I'm heading into the sewing room to start making them into something!

Much too hot for cricket or the tennis Christine, the water looks great though, a lovely spot to cool off.

The boys are having great fun with their mates & family - and all the water looks inviting in your heat - stay safe & keep cool.
PS Molly looks gorgeous, I bet she loves her swims too! x

So pleased the cricket was on Sunday and not during this week. Great idea to go to the river in the evening. Perfect!
