another year older...

...another year, er, wiser.?

34 today. And I don't look a day over 47 (surely "74" - Ed.)

hoggy hoggy hoggy

After one of the most exciting Test Matches of recent years, England took a 2-1 lead in the series against South Africa at Jo'burg. Despite losing key overs to rain and "bad light" (Steve Bucknor's dirty glasses?) we saw 147 from Strauss, matched by 161 from Gibbs, topped by 180 from Trescothick and finally, just when you thought England had declared too late and it was heading for a draw, Matthew Hoggard stepped up and took 7-61 giving him a Test-best 12-205 and England the victory. Woot.

birthday madness

What was going on all those years ago in April? For some reason all our friends and relatives have birthdays in January...

Nik (9th), Cerys (11th), Emma B (13th), Karen (15th), Rick (18th), GiD (24th) and Doug (25th)

Oh, and me. I share a birthday with GiD. There'll be a tremor in the Force that night, I can tell you, as North and South London compete to see who can fall over the most . . .
