The title doesn’t refer to England at the cricket although it doesn’t look great as I write – I really thought the Test would go to the wire with all results possible! Sadly it looks like our chances of winning have diminished! No the title today is because I cycled 40 miles today to pick up a cricket ball for our match on Thursday! Fantastic ride but nearly got taken out by a squirrel that kept changing its mind on what direction it wanted to go!
I start relearning stories tomorrow for a gig the following week. I have found I have been a little rusty although with the gigs I have done through the summer it is coming back!
Finally we have had regular Charms of Goldfinches in the garden over this last week- I counted a dozen this morning-last week on the monthly Bird Survey we had nearly 40 in one Charm.
