On Saturday we left home at about 9.30am and headed for the Rose Bowl, to watch the finals of the T20 Cricket competition. Hampshire had reached the semi-final stage, but weren't really expected to get much further. They played the first match against Essex...and won and so went into the final. The weather could have been kinder, we had to get under the umbrella several times and the second match couldn't be completed because of rain. They have a complicated method entitled Duckwoth/Lewis for working out the winner in a situation like this, which gave Somerset the lead over Nottingham and so they became our opponents for the final match.
At about 11.15pm under the floodlights, the match ended with a tied score, but as we had lost one fewer wicket...we won! Wonderful! It was a very long day, and since then I've had a sore back and a stiff shoulder. Oh dear, what it is to be getting old! It was fun whilst it lasted.
Anyway here are a couple of cards I made today.
The first one is for Bah Humbug! Angels or Fairies!
