Sunday dawned bright just like the previous 3 days but after a cup of tea and coffee it was obvious all was not right with my beloved other half. After soldiering on for a further 3 hours,we decided to return home,watch the football have dinner and maybe return in the evening to enjoy another evening wonderfully clothes free. In the end we didn’t go back on Saturday night and after having a hot bath we came to the conclusion Ginny had a touch of sunstroke as the symptoms are so very similar.
Up early on the last day of the mini break as I can’t sleep,time to grab a coffee and catch up on the last triumphant Ashes test highlights.
England regained the Ashes at 11.39 am on a sun-struck Saturday morning at Trent Bridge, kicking off a party that will stretch the length and breadth of the islands until the urn is formally handed over at The Oval in London in a fortnight.The match and the series was technically decided when Nathan Lyon had his stumps spreadeagled in emblematic fashion, dragging the ball back on to his stumps in trying unsuccessfully to withdraw his bat.
After that as dawn was breaking,cloudy unfortunately it was time for a naturalist (that’s naturalist not naturist) programme “Lost Land of the Volcano” which is on BBC Four catch up.
Later in the day I had to pop back to the club and pick up some things we’d left there after leaving hastily the day before. I took the chance to strip of as I had a few jobs to do like putting a bench together,making the bed tidying and sweeping up. Once done I collected the food and drink from the clubs fridge,had a quick rinse under the shower got dressed and headed for home. The long weekend though curtailed by a day and a half was a glorified success,full of warm weather sunshine and almost totally relaxing nudity.
