Very little time

Well its a busy day today already and I will try to keep this as brief as possible.

More from the inquest into Phillip Hughes death came out after Sean Abbott was called to give his account of events.
His harrowing description of the moments after the ball hit Hughes was difficult to read , as was his comments on his own feeling. I can not even begin to imagine how this is for the family, friends and team mates who are sitting through it..

Australia continued there run of bad luck in South Africa despite a century from David Warner.. The Proteas have looked a strong side  despite missing Abraham Benjamin, and Australia had their first 5-0 loss in ODI cricket.
The scorecard is not good reading apart from Warner's 173 which really brought the numbers up..

However altercations on the field have resulted in fines for the whole of the South Africa team.

Not good.

England won their match against Bangladesh, winning the series. Next stop a couple f warm up matches and then onto the  first test staring on 20th October.

Lots to do in the office as more projects land on my desk.

Good news regarding the very valuable teddy who, came home with me after the match at Lords, he is allowed to stay at the chateau permanently and is now settled in nicely, although his abundance of cricket sweaters ( one for every first class county ) has not gone unnoticed.

Business on the online shop is taking off and with Christmas just over two months away it is looking as if it may be a busy time.

So off to the office, knitting at lunchtime and then Christmas cake making when I get home.

I am sure I will be in need of the trip to Dubai sooner rather than later!

until tomorrow
