netball in my young adult years was not kind to me.
Dh, Miss Mischief and I spent the weekend with her class and quite a few other parents and a couple of teachers on the annual 'Man From Snowy River' camp. Our Year 8's study 'The Man From Snowy River' as one of their English texts and an elective camp is part of the package. They camp in tents with no power or shower block, although there are well-maintained drop loo's. Meals are all cooked over a camp fire and you have to take everything you need in with you, and everything including your rubbish out at the end. Throughout the camp the kids get to see and experience some sights from the movie, such as horseriding around the area where that magnificent downhill ride scene was filmed. They got to see that hill and hear the story of the filming of that scene. They also hike to the top of 'The Bluff' - an arduous and challenging trek for those of us who are uphill-walking challenged.
The kids were fabulous all weekend long and we all had a lovely time together. My most memorable moment? Getting to the top of that silly Bluff and looking over directly at Mt Buller. Incredible! Worst moment? Getting to the top of that silly Bluff. And walking along the ridge and down to Bluff Hut was pretty tough too - just because it wasn't straight up didn't mean it was easy walking.
Alright. I've put dinner off for long enough. Come along achy muscles and cranky knees, it's time to find something for dinner.
