Re: Willis Trophy Game 2 Northants away

I think I know what AGod means (and I didn't read it as a criticism in any way) and I'll do a further dull update/explanation later but at the moment life is good.

I went out on the bike for a couple of hours in blistering sunshine, stopped to watch Hampset's Sunday team play cricket for a while. I've enjoyed a good dinner, I'm drinking wine (chardonnay – I'm showing my age) and listening to Lloyd Cole. And Somerset, the team to watch, won at a canter. Though when Northants were just over 100 for three I was a little tense; I shouldn't have been.

Thanks for your kind and positive words. During the furlough I'd worked out there were three options: return to work full time; return part time; redundancy. I actually put the part-time work suggestion to my employer in writing months ago, but redundancy is my second favourite outcome of the three and not a surprise (not with my experience of it).

Right, I want to see Somerset's batsmen in the nest on livestream tomorrow and Tuesday while the bowlers down goblets of cider while smoking Havana cigars, or something like that...
