Of Peterborough and Postponement

I travelled to Peterborough yesterday to provide Hays Recruitment with some proofs of ID as required for the vacancy that I was supposed to be interviewing for today. Peterborough is a surprsingly pleasant place once you get away from the area round the bus and train stations, which is even more hideous than the corresponding part of Lynn. I got back to Lynn to find an email from a Hays consultant asking me to phone them. It turns out that the assessor is sick and no replacement has yet been found, so I now endure a wait to find out when thi interview will be happening.

Belated congratulations to South Africa who outplayed England conclusively in the recently concluded test series and thoroughly deserve their world number one ranking. Jonathan Bairstow, replacing the ostracised Kevin Pietersen in the side contributed two fine innings (95 and 54), but the top order failed in both innings. The other youngster in the side, James Taylor, showed that he has the temperament for the big occasion, and was unlucky in the second innings when his senior partner, Jonathan Trott, caused him to be run out. Surrey kept alive their hopes of qualifying from thier group of the CB40 (Clydesdale Bank 40 overs per side competition in full) by winning the Tom Maynard memorial match against Glamorgan on Tuesday. I listened to this first on my radio, and then on the computer when the powers that be decided that spoilt babies in football kits (yes, they are back in action for the new season) took precedence on 5 live sports extra.

I have some photos for you as usual (please note that the first and last pictures were taken through the window of a bus)…

I am branch secretary of NAS West Norfolk and #actuallyautistic (diagnosed 10 years ago at the comparatively advanced age of 31). I am a keen photographer, so that most of my own posts contain photos. I am a keen cricket fan and often write about that subject. I also focus a lot on politics and on nature.
