Thank you Emma for all your kind and wise words.
Jane, I sadly have never managed to keep any relationship going for long. I find it difficult to believe that anyone can really love me. I'm sure they have, I just find it difficult to believe.
I wish I had access to my childhood care archives Denise. I think I would learn a lot. There are things I do know, but so far I find them difficult to write about.
Thanks for the hug Valerie.
Sharkbytes, you got me thinking about cricket. I am going to unravel the mysteries of the game for you. Everyone else can blame you for this post.
The Rules Of Cricket
You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out. When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game!
Tea and sandwiches are then served by the home teams womenfolk. After the tea and sandwiches everyone goes off to the pub to drink beer and talk about cricket. That's it really, quite a simple game, I'm sure you will agree.
My blog is almost up to 10,000 views, but there are only spaces for 4 numerals. Let's see blogger sort that one out! It'll probably cause a crash.
