Well the big thing in my Derby life was that I popped my bout cherry with the SWAT girls on Saturday (technically being a Fairy in the bout in Gloucester was my first bout, but this was my first playing on the Travel Team for SWAT) So how was it? Well I wasn’t sick, I didn’t wet myself and I actually enjoyed it so all was good!
