Clean sheet

Listening to: HDU-Higher ++

My indoor soccer team (I still have not yet been able to refer to it consistently as football...) won 4-0 tonight.

As the goalkeeper this makes me very happy. Our defence was solid, and the opposition attack sporadic, but always threatening, and I made a few good saves.

This is the first time in nearly a couple of years worth of indoor keeping that I have kept the goal score free, so it is worth mentioning. The last minutes of the game were quite tense, knowing that achievement was beckoning...


After two days the new job is going well. While I can be a good trainer, I had forgotten that I am an impatient trainee. I hate not knowing what is going on around me and shadowing people, and standing around watching others work. I hate feeling useless. I enjoy being competent. While fully expected and somewhat welcome, I am finding the transition from being super competent (old job) to not yet competent due to inexperience (new job) a little difficult. Still, this is what I wanted and expected, having trained many folk in my time, so I just have to put up with it. The rewards will be worth it. The first few weeks of a new job are never easy.

And the atmosphere and people are really nice too, which helps.


I will blog about something profound and illuminating and not just about me soon, promise.


Matt and Tarn, "ON YA!" for the Bay beating the Lions on the weekend. Well done.
