Well, the ashes have started.
There I was at midnight, SKY providing the pictures, eagerly anticipating the biggest Test Series in Cricket. Up trundles Steve Harminson… and… a wide. And in the next hour & half it didn’t get much prettier… that said, I think Australia made the best of their luck with several catchable edges going to the boundary.
And then up this morning to see they’ve put on 350+ for three wickets. England must do better…
Needless to say, seeing the clear blue skies, the cricket and the crowd has really hiked my interest in getting to Aus for my holiday – 6 working days now… I’m still short a hotel in Sydney, but I’m hopeful that something will come good… alternatives at the minute will include park bench, hire car, and £200 a night 4 star. I’ll probably only stay in Sydney now for a couple of days instead of the three & make my way up the Eastern Board slower… so it might be a blessing in disguise. We’ll see.
