Over cooked it!

Why do I do it? I recently went to an AGM of a kids football team I started, I am now the life president. I jokingly said if I went to their training sessions and anyone saw me trying to join in and kick a football they should wrestle me to the ground and cart me off! So yesterday was Father's Day and we went to daughters house for BBQ. And grandchildren, aged 7 & 4 said ' play football with us grandad! Just like old times, not exactly Lionel Messi, never was really,lol, but I could still play keepy-uppy and make the ball swing in the air. Oh dear! I have now just hauled myself out of bed. Hips on fire, left knee which has already had 2 cartilage ops asking what the **** were you thinking! And not able to go to work. And going on holiday tomorrow so not exactly flavour of the month with wife. So as I said. If ANYONE sees me with a football!!
