Coming home from work and once again I have to squeeze my way in the through the front door, as the hall way is packed out with all of Matthews gear as he prepares for tomorrow and another day at the local lake. That all too familiar smell of squid boilies and carp greet me as I slide along the hall way.
This time it’s Ollie that he’s managed to convince to spend the day (and it will be the whole day) with him at Tylers Common.
The usual conversation then ensues; “What time will you be able take me to the lake Mum, Dad?”. Tomorrow it will be Mum and she attempts to convince him that 8am will be early enough. But I’m sure it will end up being earlier, much earlier.
