Rambling Games - Day 5 - Garden volleyball

Our home is quite a long way from the beach and we've not enough sand to look like Horseguards Parade so we couldn't match the Olympic teams today.  We ditched the skimpy costumes too, but as we couldn't find a balloon for the ball a slightly squishy football sufficed and a piece of rope strung between the trees made the net.
Teams were a little uneven at times - 2 against one and a fluffy dog handicap when the ball hit the ground - but it was fun!

    1. Hello Anonymous
      I took a look at your site but to be completely honest with you, I wasn't sure what it was all about, other than being under construction.
      I think the main thing with blogging is to be sure what you want it to be about. Is it to provide information for others, to entertain, to influence people and so on. Be clear about how often you can write blog posts and then try to stick with that.
      My mistake at the start was not having a clear strategy at the start - I have learnt from that mistake. Otherwise it takes time to grow and become a mature blog and there has to be a reason for people to come back again and follow you.
      Hope that helps.

      Regards, Doug.
