I went to bed late on Sunday evening. It was raining.

My alarm woke me on Monday morning. It was raining even harder.


I had a shower and got dressed; went downstairs; made a coffee; ate a raspberry yoghurt; and looked outside. It was still raining.

Spotting with rain

I pottered about for a while and watched the Test match when it started.

It stopped raining but by then it was too late. The Nevill Ground was apparently awash and the game abandoned.

Stupid weather.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. That’s actually quite a busy day, Sarah comma Canterbury. Personally, once it had become clear that I wasn’t leaving the house, I probably wouldn’t have bothered with the shower.

  2. I fear Sarah Comma, that you are some kind of rain-bringing goddess- and today I hear that Kent are no longer able to play at Canterbury but forced to move to King Bobby’s home town of Beckenham…..

  3. At least it gives everyone a chance to pay attention to their second team – Durham – who are currently mauling Notts.

    Thanks for bringing the rain Miss Comma.

  4. Heavy on the “currently” i think. Lest you forget Durhams scorecard in the semi last year, as far as I recall the pitch was supposedly just fine then too.

    I’m not commenting on the goddess remark.

  5. I am listening to Durham atm – but am quite grateful that I am having to be a beard for gay friend this pm so he can see Sex and the City (he can’t go on his own apparently because that would be TOOOO gay) and so will not watch Durham’s rather fragile batting line up fall apart….

  6. My second team is Notts so am not enjoying the match quite as much as D Charlton and Ceci.

  7. Talking of beards, Jessica Taylor. Umm… that’s it.

    Notts fight back – i’ve always thought 150 was too much for Durham. The world is about to end. Sob.

  8. Batsmen (Hur)! what are they good for?
    ………er….possibly winning you the match?

    Notts have got some bowlers too! Sob. I’m off to the post office.

  9. PAH!!!!!!!!

    Substitute Middlesex for Somerset and add MANY expletives.

    Am NOT happy.

    Stupid f@%£ing weather.

    ps Gutted Spigot doesn’t think I’m a goddess…

  10. Don’t dis the hounds. They’ll come and get you.

    That’s what happened to me.

  11. I’m glad you cleared that up, Spigot…

    *narrows eyes; ponders; bides time*

  12. Hang on D Charlton…I know the womenfolk round here are pretty feisty, but surely calling them hounds is a bit strong?

    And with that, it’s time for bed (said Zebedee).

  13. *blows kisses at Mahinda*

    Though it was Spigot who first threw that analogy into the arena…

  14. Meant the hounds literally.

    They live near me, they never leave me alone, always, er, hounding me…

    Apologies for any offence caused, you are all beautiful, although being a rabid Facebook nay-sayer (i reckon with more passion than Spigot) I can never be sure…

    Durham won – just…
