Peace and quiet







Its Bank Holiday Monday and it is perfectly still and quiet outside.

Most of the folk in the road are still asleep and I've not even seen a dog walker this morning
Im up and about and getting ready to make a start on some of the decorating ( hopefully) as well as sorting out the washing and doing a spot of steam cleaning.

And then there is cricket on TV.

Ben Stokes is looking a doubt and the England camp have drafted in Toby Roland-Jones, Liam Dawson and...........................................Steve Finn!!!!

Oh my dog!!! The ultimate 'holiday' boy is back in the gang. Luckily it won't cost the ECB much to get his tube ticket to Lords, for him to sit on the balcony and sun himself, unless ( shock horror) he plays!

Its the last ODI and South Africa really need to look as if they mean business.

In the county championship,
Hampshire beat Somerset by 90 runs. Some brilliant bowling from Liam Dawson and Mason Crane in the match as well as a half century for the lovely Michael Carberry.

Somerset are bottom of the table at the moment. With Hampshire currently top!


Notts are continuing their march back to Div 1 with an innings win over Gloucestershire.
They need to be back where they belong!

However Worcestershire are  keeping on the pressure after their win against Nothants' it was marred slightly when  Northants , Richard Levi was taken to hospital during their match after being struck on the head, he suffered a mild concussion but was later allowed home.
We wish him well.

I've now decided to head  out and collect some elderflowers whilst it is so peaceful, I feel a batch of elderflower 'champagne' coming on

have a relaxing Bank Holiday Monday.
