Yesterday Mike and I had a meeting at the university about running a volunteering drop in centre. We're going to be running one every Tuesday now, it sounds really good actually, there are a lot more opportunities out there than I'd realised. We had a lunchtime meeting so we chatted with the lady who runs the local sector of the company and she trained us up then we had some lunch, I got a really nice hummous sandwhich on a wholemeal ciabatta, really good! And a melon and cherry smoothie.. also really good! I'm waiting to hear on a few more voluntary positions, I'll be glad when I can get started on them.

We went to boxing tonight after a near miss! Mike decided he didn't feel too good so cancelled our lift, it's with his dad so I didn't feel like I could ask him to come just for me. I was really fed up, I hate it when plans change, especially so last minute and it had just happened two nights in a row! Anyway, the coach told Mike's dad he had a bout for Mike on Friday night so Mike's dad rung to let him know and he decided we should go to training after all so he could get some good sparring in before the fight. We should be going to boxing again tonight so fingers crossed nothing will go wrong today!!

Sparring - about 15 minutes there was three of us in the ring and we just swapped in and out, me, one southpaw and one orthodox fighter. I'm still struggling against the southpaw, he's hard to figure out hah. Was pretty tired by the time I got to spar so I didn't do as well as I'd have liked, hopefully I can get back in there tonight and do a bit better... I landed some really good shots but they weren't consistent enough..


  1. hear ya on the frustration of plans changing...

    and for all the non-boxers out there, it be great to have a post that describes the dif boxing jargon (sparring, why southpaws are harder to box...)

    that would be cool to know!

  2. fingers crossed for you. and i am the most scheduled person ever so i totally feel your pain on plans changing
