Lawyer and I have been rather busy last weekend with Lawyer’s new sporting passion, Roller Derby. This weekend was the final bout, and a double header with two interstate teams coming over to bout against AD.RD.

I got to have a taste of being out on the track and involved with the game. For the first game against Sydney, I was Sus.ie No Skates, penalty timer.

I thought it was about time to take on a Derby name since I’ve been helping out and turning up to practise with Lawyer. Everyone keeps asking if I’ll be trying out this year, but my knees are too dead after years of netball, cross country running and two knee operations to get up on skates. So I’m Susie because my parents wanted to name me Susan, but changed their minds when their neighbours enquired how baby Susie was, and No Skates because there will be no skating by me. Now girls keep asking me when I’ll become Sus.ie On Skates.

Lawyer, or Dee Inju.ria on the track, is a Ref for AD.RD. Hopefully this will be her last reffing game and next year she will be able to come back as a fully skilled Derby Girl. She’s already got some killer booty and a thirst for some smashy smashy.

Two good games, both won comfortably by AD.RD. WooHoo!

As well as that we’ve been emailing D and making plans for when he comes back to Australia so we can go to Melbourne IVF. Everything is slowly falling into place. Can’t believe this first big wait is almost over.
