Day 7 of Youth Squad Tour in Sweden (Afternoon)

For lunch today we ate our packed lunches and took a long walk to the bus stop. At the bus stop we finished eating and sat down for a long wait before the next bus came. When the bus finally came we got on and started the long drive home.

When we arrived home we quickly changed and grabbed our dirty washing before heading to Nick’s apartment building to replace our foul smelling garments with soft clean clothes, when we sorted the clothes into colours, we worked out how to work the machine (while James, Andries, Rory and Mathew went to change Nicks tyres and sort the recycling) Bev, Carl and I went to go get milk at the shops. When we returned the clothes were washed and drying. We waited in the washing room until all the items were dry (the socks seemed to take the longest surprisingly) packed them and jumped on the next bus home, where we were greeted by more than a hundred people here for the OK Ravinen training.

We packed away our washing and got ready for this evenings training. Tania, Heather, Andries and I ran a mile up to the start and took the orange map and decided to do a quick relocation exercise, in pairs, where we had ten seconds to relocate and start moving to the next control. When Heather and I finished we ran back with Nick and got warm in the girls room with everyone else. After we bought mini chocolate brownies, we migrated downstairs to the boy’s “room”. Where we played Uno with our extra power cards for an hour and a bit before it finally finished. When the club people were mostly gone we emerged from our basement shelter and Heather and I cooked spaghetti bolognaise for dinner. We ate, played a game of paired speed with Uno cards and then went to our bed for some well-deserved sleep.
