I admit I feel cheated.
For two lovely days, despite the heat, I have been working in the garden, and following the Boxing Day Test Match. (Memo to non-Australian readers – a game of cricket against South Africa, due to go over five days).
I also admit I am a fan of the longer game – five days of following the twists and turns of a test, while gardening, is my idea of heaven.
And now it looks like it will be four days and a couple of balls tomorrow and it will be over.
Blast – I shall have to resort to playing CDs. Not nearly as much fun.
At least today I got my first ripe Roma tomato.
And the garden is almost covered in a mulch of the smoke from the Smoke Bush.
And a lot of the weeds are under control.
Even if the Australian Cricket team is not.
