What a treat, what a bargain, I’ve mentioned before how spud needs an endless supply of tennis balls (as many end up on the barn roof). So you can imagine Spud I were in high glee this week when I found a whole box of tennis balls for sale at the modest sum of 10p each in a charity shop. I bought thirty five balls. What a result, I was happy, Spud was happy and the charity shop was happy, game, set and match. Mr Uphilldowndale is a bit anxious they will all end up in the gutter of the barn roof at once, so they are to be rationed out, but not before we had a play with the lot of them.
Spud was very keen to see how he might field a whole tea tray of balls at once.
It wasn’t as easy as he first thought, so much choice.
But it was fun
The throwing technique took a bit of practice and my ‘prop boy’ had the off duff serve.
After last weeks school girl error with the Roman numerals, I’m hoping for full marks this week.
