The great British summer comes to the rescue!

India has avoided defeat in the first test at Lords thanks to bad light and rain interruptions, but only just survived with only one wicket remaining. England were in a dominant position at the end of day four with a lead of 242 with three big wickets already taken, so only needed to take the remaining seven wickets to seal the win. England’s bowlers did their best with Chris Tremlett taking 3 wickets for 52 runs. Ryan Sidebottom claimed another two wickets today and Monty Panesar took another wicket before bad light forced early a tea break! And that was the end of play, the players never took to the field again and the match was declared a draw despite England playing much better cricket than India, but unfortunately for England that’s the rules of cricket! Obviously England captain Michael Vaughan is frustrated by the weather, but at least the England squad can take a lot of positives from this test into the second test at Trent Bridge on Friday, the English test squad are playing very well right now It’s basically come down to a one match test series, whoever wins this test will take the series, assuming rain doesn’t interrupt the game again!

I have ordered some new DVD’s from today, bought Saw III, Men In Black II and The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift, not bad for £18. I am starting to spend my spare cash on something tangible instead of pissing it up against a wall all the time. I have four days off before I have to work again including today, Phil is doing open mic tomorrow night and since I am no longer involved with Alternation, I will be spending Wednesday night at home and Thursday night I maybe going out for a drink with Teri, but that is still to be confirmed. I still don’t have any romantic feelings towards her, I’m simply not attracted to her in that way, and despite what people have said, I don’t think she is attracted to me in that way either. I never discount anything in the future but at this time we are both looking for friendship. I am also thinking of going to the cinema for the first time in 12 months to see the Simpsons movie, and maybe even Die Hard 4. Basically anything other than going to pubs and clubs, although Thursday will be different, I’ll probably drink coke, don’t really want to drink at the moment, I haven’t touched a drop since Friday, just did my job and went home. But that is probably because of tiredness, so these four days away from Voodoo will do me the world of good, some weeks I have been spending six nights in Voodoo.
