The various weather forecasts I’ve had a look at all differ in the exact expected temperatures for the next couple of days, but they all agree on one thing – its going to be #&%^ cold!!

So I’m gonna be camped out right here, in front of the fire …

Doesn’t that look lovely?

Ok, so just *try* to imagine that the camera on my new little phone DOESN’T completely suck hehe …

I have a couple of DVDs to watch tonight – Juno and Jumper. I’ve heard that Juno is excellent, so I’m looking forward to that.

Tomorrow have a bit of coding to do, so that’ll keep my in front of my computer for a few hours and then I also have some papers to shuffle and accounts to sort out. Urgh, admin blows.

Apart from that, there’s cricket on YAAAY! It’s a 5 day test with South Africa vs England from Lords. We aren’t doing too well after wining the toss and electing to field first – England declared on 593/8 at the end of day 2 – but hopefully tomorrow will see us get off to a solid batting start so we can pile on the runs *fingers crossed*. We are REALLY going to have to bat a whole lot better than we bowled!! I have a sneaky suspicion that it may all end in a draw.

Oh, just by the by … I was trying to keep an eye on the match today while working, and it proved to be rather tiring and annoying having to jump up and check the action out on tv every few minutes, so I found a much better way of tracking the score. Online. This, after I asked if anyone knew of a good website that churned out live scores and was promptly reprimanded by SheBee and told to JFGI!! wahaha!! So I did =)

If you also want to track the cricket online, here’s the site I found. It’s pretty good, not too far behind the live action and the running commentary is quite entertaining too:

“Steyn to Sidebottom, no run, hah! Sidebottom has had enough of being peppered by Steyn and tries to swat a bouncer but only takes his eyes off the ball and misses, which has Steyn amused”

“Harris to Broad, OUT, timber! Broad goes for a meaty whip across the line, rather ugly, looking to work a full and flat delivery to midwicket but the ball turns ever so slightly and disturbs the furniture”

And then, sometime over the next 2 days, I’ll have to cut Son#1’s hair for school (he won’t let anyone else cut it) and psyche myself up for The Dreaded Weekly Grocery Shop … hoo boy!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
