Little things

March 10, 2009

There isn’t much to beat the excitement of the last few overs of a test match when you’ve just got the 8th wicket and need two more to win the game…

Even though the West Indies just beat us for the first time in 11 years it was high drama, and sometimes that’s just what you want, regardless of who wins. That’s one of the things I love about cricket, and one reason why the test match is such an important part of the game. Twenty20 may be gaining popularity around the world but there can never be the same suspense, which is why I think games like today can do so much for the sport.

Almost as exciting, however, is discovering a new charity shop with an almost limitless supply of old buttons!


…As well as lots of old postcards and several beautiful pieces of vintage jewellery, unfortunately mostly a bit pricey. I also managed to find this beautiful book at an antique shop for 50p!


I’m not sure what I’m going to do with them all yet. But I will use them. Because that justifies buying them and keeping them in little jars where they look beautiful until I use them. Doesn’t it?
