Some of you might know when I am not working, sewing, knitting and taking photos I officiate basketball games. I have blogged about my experiences with wheelchair basketball and those can be found in my archives.
Yesterday was cup final day for the WBBL & BBL leagues. It’s the first silverware of season.
These games took place at the Arena Birmingham, not a small venue by any means!
I was asked to do the Swiss timing. Swiss timing, what’s that? I asked the same question and still wasn’t sure until I spoke to the floor manager! At this point my anxiety levels went sky high. But I was taken through the equipment by Alfie, when I looked at the equipment it was the same equipment I used at Paralympics 2012. This scoring equipment is made by Omega and would be shown on the BBC coverage.
I made notes of what I was shown and got on with it. I felt more comfortable in the 2nd game but my legs shook. It was far from perfect but I survived & hopefully didn’t mess up too badly.
I am always looking to step out of my comfort zone and improve my confidence. This brings me onto my new crafting idea.
I take a lot of photos and keep meaning to print them, well I have placed my first order for some cards. There will be five designs and here are two of them.
These cards will be for sale and supplied with a kraft envelope.
