So England lost the First Test, and it didn't even take them very long. But there are still four more this summer! To cheer me up after the defeat, I ambled along to John Finnemore's new blog. He's funny. Have a read.
I have finally managed to catch up on most of the emailing waiting for me when I came back from holiday - I think. If I'm meant to have emailed you and I haven't - sorry! Maybe I haven't caught up as much as I thought I had.
Meanwhile, I have another huge task facing me: to eat all the food leftover from a barbecue. It was meant to be a small barbecue, but the menu didn't realise that. It was huge. Now I must eat everything before it is wasted. Can't stand wasting food. Must eat.
Or there is the other solution - have another barbecue...
