drunken master II

It was such a shame. I was really (honestly) looking forward to fight on the Sunday. I haven't actually properly sparred since last year, so it would have been an experience. However, my team of 3 was drafted against Scotland, which by the way does include 3 times World Champion Julia Cross who I mentioned last time. Being the shortest out of the whole team, it was decided that I would go up last, as in team sparring height is definitely an advantage. Then it just happened that my two other team mates lost their fights and thus I didn't get to fight :( If I had I would probably been up against the -52 kg Scottish National fighter Michelle, who, I believe so anyway, I could have beaten.
The day ended on a good note though as I was practically begged (can you believe it!!) to come to National Squad training sessions so that I could be a part of the team once again. This will, however, mean that I'll have to cut down on my alcohol intake. I have also been asked to diet down so that I could fight -52 kg (which is something like 8 stones and 2 pounds, I think), which I am seriously considering. So if you see me longingly looking at chocolate, chips, pizza, sweets, alcohol etc. you'll know that I've made up my mind. I have until middle of December to drop down so wish me good luck. I guess that now the title 'Drunken Master' won't any longer apply to me, as I will no longer drink to my heart's content. Next time you see me out it will be a new soberer me…

(Oh by the way, I didn't get to fight Julia, Steph got that honour. At least this time she didn't end up with a nose-bleed like last time she fought her. :p Also I think that I should mention that 'Drunken Master' is a film starring a young Jackie Chan, I didn't just make it up)
