It looked like some old biscuit tin, Julius. Completely rusted. I've thrown it in the skip.
The only words I can read are "ESPIRIT" Maybe it was an old oil can or something?

Are you up north, Rick?

It was hot and stuffy in the roof space. Muggy like Brisbane. It was quite pleasant once you got out though. 25 deg C with a gentle breeze. The back yard is as dry as the Sahara right now. I noticed those classic hexagonal plate cracks appearing in the clay/dirt. Not one blade of grass where the future lawn will be.

Controlling the shrinkage is presumably also important for those jolly post-match changing room selfies as well.

You're lucky out there. I believe Aussie pitches can be anything between 60-90% clay. Perth was 90% back in the day. Here we can only get grass to grow in 20-40% clay soils.

Yes, they have to bring up that dark loam soil from Bulli (not far from Sydney, close to the 'Gong) which they use all over the grounds here.

You're out south west of London right, sean? When I was there that area always seemed to get the highest temps. I recall Heathrow or Slough got the hottest reading. Are you just south of there?

This morning when I opened the back door to greet the builders, I noticed it was the first time (since late April or May) that I wasn't also greeted by cool-cold air in my face. The air was cool-ish... but there was a definite tinge of spring warmth about it.

I also realised (when that happened) that I haven't had the heater on in the mornings for a week or so.
In fact... I've parked it halfway up the hall. I know if I put it away completely we'll get colder weather again.

I might have to think about dragging the fan out into the hall too. There has already been 30 deg. plus days in western NSW (40 in the Kimberleys) and it only takes a half a day or so with the right conditions (weakened cold fronts from Antarctica direction) for the desert heat to pour over the great divide and down into the Sydney basin. It can get very hot all of a sudden. Sean, you know what I mean. Those nor-westerlies.

Bit further south and west than Heathrow / Slough thank God. Although I work in Bracknell which is near and as bad as Slough.

Used to live in Guildford centre and it would get very hot there as it is in a natural valley. Very little wind.

Yes, Slough was a bit too grey for me although I'm sort of fascinated by the ugliness of heavy industry and the residential areas which surround them.

Guilford is very nice town, imo.
I used to travel through there on the train on the way to a job I was doing in Havant. It always looked so lush and green with nice old buildings (from an Australian perspective). It looked a very tidy town with a fair bit of history to it.

So your cricket grounds are right near the Bracknell & Wokingham College?

G'day Raf.
Is that good for you too though - the flat pitches? Are you in for a long, hot dry summer?
Here they try and keep as much juice in them as possible throughout spring but inevitably they dry out more and more as the sun gets hotter... becoming more and more "road-like" later in the season. Then the clay (sean talks about) comes to the surface or is exposed (the Bulli soil having been scraped and blown away)... so that the spring grass is pretty much non-existent.

The exceptions will be the major grounds where the WC matches will be played. They'll put those in cotton wool and not overuse them obviously... but the rest of the cricket grounds here will be deteriorating a lot more from a combination of the weather conditions and overuse.

Guildford is alright but the traffic is awful. Too expensive as well. 1 bed flat circa £235-250k.

No, the pitch I look after is out towards surrey/ west sussex borders.

It's probably going to be a scorching summer. It's 32 degrees today, and we're only two weeks into Spring. Probably means we are going to have some fantastic thundershowers.
As a rule, I prefer my pitches fair, some pace and bounce, but uniform, so that in batsmen can score hundreds. The team I'm coaching isn't really blessed in the pace department this year, so I'd like to maybe have a little less grass, but the premier team is brimming with big fast bowlers, so we'll get preference.

Amazing site down the end of my garden. There is a hedgerow that backs on to a farmers field. It is absolutely covered in webs from labyrinth spiders. It has almost turned the hedge white. They look like funnels but obviously don't contain funnel web spiders or I wouldn't be in North Herts, I would be living next door to LD. It looks fantastic though.

I was in the garden pottering yesterday and got a face full of spider web. bloody hundreds of the critters at the moment. Luckily Ray (the cat) is partial to spiders as well as moths so none of the big f'kers get inside.

Not little, but definitely less than we normally get. Short of a good length at pace can come up to the lower ribs. It builds bad habits for bowlers and doesn't breed the batting technique required for modern cricket. Not to mention discourages the spinners from attacking the batsman, fighting it, letting it turn

Amazing site down the end of my garden.  There is a hedgerow that backs on to a farmers field.  It is absolutely covered in webs from labyrinth spiders.  It has almost turned the hedge white.  They look like funnels but obviously don't contain funnel web spiders or I wouldn't be in North Herts, I would be living next door to LD.  It looks fantastic though.  

I was in the garden pottering yesterday and got a face full of spider web. bloody hundreds of the critters at the moment. Luckily Ray (the cat) is partial to spiders as well as moths so none of the big f'kers get inside.

Yep, they come out in droves this time of year. Mating season for lots of species.

The big ones won't hurt you. All my kids, even the 3 year old twins will pick up massive house spiders, they are not bothered at all. We live in the countryside in an old house full of holes. We get hundreds of them inside. They're like my extended family and keep the dirty flies away.

Out by the box car waiting, take me away to nowhere plans. There is a wait so long (so long, so long). You'll never wait so long. Here comes Julius. Here comes Julius. Here comes Julius.

Don't think your family needs more extending, mate.

I think those daddy long legs stories are largely apocryphal.

There are loads (at least double figures) of UK spiders that can, and do, bite humans, but it is so infrequent and only when they are either handled roughly or get stuck in clothing. We don't really have any genuinely aggressive species. The only one that really does some damage is the false widow and even that is nothing compared to funnel webs, redbacks etc etc. No worse than a wasp sting unless you have an allergic reaction. Never been a recorded death from a false widow bite in the UK.

Jules will be relieved - means that he can make a pass at his tennis opponents without fear of being bitten to death.

Jules has a fearsome backhand. His wife told me.

Scotch Broth and Sarnie...

Maybe getting all the Scotch Broth in before the referendum...

Or that the chefs can not be bothered on a Monday.

Dairlylea and marmite on toast. 3 slices.

Some sausage and mustard kettle crisps and a wagon wheel. Nice cup of tea to finish it all off.

Highly anglocentric, the Yorkshire tea farmers will be proud...

Support the local business, unles the non-local ones are cheaper/better of course...

I try and support the village shop as much as possible, even at the ramped up prices.

Mr Dharmishra and family. Lovely people although its taken me the best part of a decade to convince them I'm not a petty thief.
