Ingrid and I played “football”. I had an upside-down bucket and a watering can to mark my goal; Ingrid had two sticks on the ground. A piece of rope marked the halfway line.

Actually what we played was more like air hockey with a ball… each one stayed on their side of the halfway line and tried to kick the ball into the other’s goal. It felt like we spent most of our time fetching the ball, because the garden slopes downwards behind both my goal and hers.
