Today’s things are: mattress, golf ball, green
It was a wet sport afternoon and as the rain poured down the prospects of going out diminished by the minute.
Miss Teresa gave us some options.
If we wanted to read away the afternoon she would drag out the old mattress from the storeroom and we could lay on that as we read.
The other option was to clear the right-hand corner of the classroom and pretend it was a golf green and she provide us with golf ball and a putter and we could play a quiet version of put-put golf.
The girls all went for the reading option so were soon spread out on the mattress reading away while we boys played a serious game of golf with scores kept, penalties inflicted and ultimately a final hole duel between me and Harry Crab. Needless to say, under pressure Harry won.
