The count down for the WWC2013 competition is on and the international women officials are on their way to Helsinki. I am still writing the final draft of my thesis, so I won’ t be there with them.
I can tell that they are really focussed on the task ahead of them, and that the excitement is turning to adrenaline to help them through the days ahead. It’s also magical that I am able to focus on my thesis and that things are coming together at this time, of all times.
We have had rainy weather for the last couple of mornings, but the rest of the days have been crisp and mild. For me, that is perfect writing weather, and perhaps perfect football weather for some.
Our men’s and ladies’ football season starts in August and we are preparing for meetings like the Annual General Meeting. In the meantime, I just love the updates I am receiving on social media! They are brilliant. I am finding out about the check-ins, airport meetings and departure points. It makes the Helsinki experience that much more interesting.
It’s great that I feel included, even though I will not be there in person. I will be there in spirit, for sure!
