While it's the fasting month, the field opposite our house has gone very quiet in the evenings. All the Malay boys who usually play football are, of course, fasting, so we get the whole field to play on, along with one or two other children.
We went there yesterday evening to enjoy the late sun
My 3 girls on the field!
My wife's first panorama shot went pretty well!
Lauren and I enjoyed a kick about with the football . . .
A simple planking manoeuvre; Lauren watched me carefully
Planking is fun and can be hilarious. It can also be extremely dangerous. To those thinking of trying it I advise you to avoid it unless you are fully confident in the planking manoeuvre and in your own ability to carry it out.
It was interesting to read the comments from yesterday's post about "Planking". It was very popular as it attracted 123 visitors in a single day. A number of people expressed how they didn't 'get it'. Really, there isn't anything to 'get'; it's just some fun to pass time. Apparently my next-door neighbour in England, an older lady named Brenda, has been planking in her back garden and I think that's absolutely hilarious! But remember, be safe!!
Following are 3 planking poses by myself on the field last night, increasing in their degree of difficulty and awesomeness . . .
By far, my best plank so far, though I don't think I want to do anything more daring than this! My heart was in my mouth for a few seconds as I waited for the picture to be snapped. But I got into a nice, stable position up there.
Lauren continued her new-found interest in planking with this pose here:
Leah watched on from her snazzy pushchair
We had a lovely time, and as you'll see tomorrow in Planking Part 3, the third and final part, I even got my good wife to join in!
