    and then slobbed around until now.

    I woke up early. England were 57-0. I thought, "I'll stay in bed until a wicket falls." Then I thought, "I can get up and go to the loo at lunch."

    So I stayed in bed, no wicket fell, and I got up at lunch.

    I cooked breakfast, and then sat down in front of the Cricket on the TV.

    By the time I was ready to bathe, get dressed and go out, still no wickets had fallen.

    So, I've been in front of the TV since lunch.

    It's now the over before tea, and I think I'm gonna be in front of the TV until four o'clock!

    Well done to Strauss and Trescothick!

    Come on England!!!

    I have been watching and listening actually :p ...I must have lost my losing wicket touch!

    Some of us have to work though so can only do bits of watching and then looking on the internet on my phone during the breaks...luckily today I don't start till 3 :-D so muchos watching and listening. It's on so that you can see or hear it in every room, just had a bath with cricket commentary...lovely!

    Apparently the Barmy Army drank the bars out of beer on the first day...nice work boys and girls!

    Vaughan's declared!

    England 139 & 570/7
    SA 332

    South Africa require 378 to win in 1 day + 13 overs. Should be good!

    Another cracking test! Exciting stuff, marvellous batting from Trescothick and when Hoggard had figures of 3 for 6 at one stage, you can't complain!
    Apparently Harmison has been bowling a bit better today, one cracking over (according to the radio, no sky here :().
    With the possibility of no Smith.....

    Can they do it ?!

    I'm loving it.

    I work with a south african lad, and he keeps swearing at me in Afrikans (sic) every time a wicket falls.
