Thank goodness my electric UpEasy cushion was returned today, or rather a new replacement for the one sent for repair.  It’s amazing how  one comes to rely on these gadgets. I often wonder how I managed before..  Of course, the problem now is that we depend a great deal upon electricity.  I shudder to think what will happen in the winter if we suffer from the usual number of power cuts.  Who knows where I might be suspended, in midair on a chair or hoist.  The longest electricity cut we had last year lasted for 27 hours.. At what stage does one call 999?

After completing my work I treated myself to a lazy day and watched the first of the 50/50 over cricket matches between England and Pakistan.  I suppose after 60 years of work I’m entitled to the odd hour or two off!  England performed reasonably well with no-one in particular shining with the bat except hero Davis with his 87 and possibly Trott with his 59..  England finished with a workmanlike 275 all out from the 41 overs, rain reduced match.  Ajmal. the Pakistan bowler took a creditable 4 wicket for 58.

Pakistan were up against it from the beginning having been.. bowled out for under 100 three times already on this tour. For a while it looked as though they were in with a good chance but in  the end only  managed 250 for 9  and England won comfortably by 24 runs
