FOOD AND NAGS

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Deb­bie the Soc­cer Mum, like all mums, en­joys the school hol­i­days. And this one’s been a rip­per so far. First, young son has pop­u­lated her beloved res­i­dence with three more of his mates, and as teenage boys, of course they are very good on the tooth. Piz­zas, a big tray of can­nel­loni, steaks, and end­less desserts have marched out of Deb­bie’s kitchen and, as she re­ports bit­terly, “Coles is hav­ing a field day”. As for the young Miss, she’s been off at an eques­trian cen­tre. Deb­bie wran­gled for an hour to put up the one-pole pup tent the kid had to sleep in. “Lots of people walked by and do you think they of­fered any help?” moaned Deb­bie. She al­ready knows what to ex­pect – a pro­longed bout of nag­ging by the daugh­ter about the need to buy a nag. Co­conut isn’t sure they planned it, but a bunch of NRL play­ers hap­pened to be hol­i­day­ing in Port all at the same time, mak­ing it an ac­ci­den­tal footy trip. ‘We turned up on the first day, went into the ho­tel pool and, fun­nily enough Adam Reynolds turned up with his four kids and his wife, Ja­son Clarke with his wife and three kids turned up, John Sut­ton and his wife and two kids and Greg Inglis with his wife and kids,’ he said. Sam joked that he left wife and child to their own de­vices. He said: ‘We were like, “What a sur­prise!” I rubbed my hands and said “I’ll see you in the bar in five min­utes, guys”.’
