The binner takes it all

Just having fun is something that we seem to not allocate time for often enough.

Today, my son, daughter and I spent about 1 1/2 hours trying to throw a tennis ball into the top of our garden incinerator that has a small round chimney on the lid, which we turned upside down.

We had to throw from the patio which was about 50-60 feet away (20 metres). So pretty challenging to be honest!

Once we worked out our individual techniques, we each started to get closer, until we were hitting the rim and on three occasions it hit the inside of the lid and bounced out. My best attempt spun round the inside rim of the lid and I was convinced it was going to drop down the chimney and into the incinerator. Alas, it spun off the rim and out.

Even our dog was in the game. She loves chasing the ball, so each time she fetched the ball for us.

Simple game, tons of fun and lots of laughs.

All of us just enjoying the moment and it’s freely available any moment we choose.

Life is like cards

We could choose not to cry about the hand we got dealt or we could be a victim.

We can change it anytime and we can always play another hand…now.

Life is a fun game that we make the rules to, if we choose to see it that way, or we can listen to our mind and believe it’s all serious and stay stuck.

If you love playing cards, you’ll love life…no game is ever the same and the possibilities are endless. It’s not about winning or losing, it’s about being at the table, taking part and having fun, knowing there’s always the next hand.

However, to enjoy it you have to have the right approach, belief, positivity and a smile.
