We drove down to Newcastle today to say ‘Hi’ to some friends (well actually friends of Niki and Jeff) who we haven’t seen since Georgia’s Christening, who are now living out here. However, Newcastle was a bit industrial and residential, so accommodation was hard to find. We have booked into the Best Western 290 Pacific Highway, Charlestown And Pete and Anita are coming here to eat later.
We listened to the Test match all the way down and England were predictably poor again (only seem able to play well for one day) and as it would happen we missed all the wickets whilst booking in.
Now England batting have to hold on for 20(?) overs and then bat again in the morning. Don’t bode well. Wow Cook nearly got out second ball!
I’d better stop now as I know I’m gonna start swearing.
