A Bit of Cricket

Hello All!

Mr Clicky and I went with our friends to The Cheltenham Cricket Festival last week to see a T20 match.  The Festival is held in the rather splendid grounds of Cheltenham College.   This is The Chapel end.
The Pavilion is just as impressive.
The weather was well......changeable.  It was raining one moment and blazing hot sunshine the next, making me wish I had thought of suncream.  We found ourselves a place in the stands, blew up our clackers
and got our 4 and 6 sign ready.

Gloucestershire were playing Kent.  Sadly Gloucestershire lost in the last few overs but it was a close match and we had a great time.

I haven't told you about my new camera.  I've had it a few months, and I am very impressed with it.  The main reason I got it ~ apart from the fact it is purple ~ is that it has a 24 x zoom.
This means I have a new obsession ~ taking pictures of the moon.  I couldn't do this with the old one and boy, am I making up for lost time.
I also captured a random planet (I think) ~ dunno which, if anybody does let me know!

School finished for the children on Thursday and for staff on Friday.  I've been in today however, to get all the peg labels in the cloakroom for KS2 done.  As I am the teaching assistant in KS2 it's all down to me.  One year I forgot completely and when we arrived back in September, 60 children looked at me and said "Where shall I hang my things?"  Not making that mistake again!

I'm off to our french house with my friend on Friday to do some more work.  You can find what we got up to on our last trip here.  It's really coming together.

See you soon...Clicky Needles.


  1. I love the results of your new camera :) Your moon shot is better than the last one I posted...I only have 20x excuse at least. Maybe you got a photo of Pluto! Have you seen the neat photos coming back from the probe? I'm glad you got the pegs in order and hope you have a grand time in will be fun to see the photos you post. xx

  2. Wow, the camera is pretty impressive! And a great colour too.

    Cricket is such a mystifying sport (to Americans at least). But what a glorious setting. And I thought the players always wore white flannel ... so much to learn.

    Enjoy your time in la belle France!

    1. Yes you're right they do wear 'whites' most of the time but for county T20 matches they wear colourful kit, all part of trying to make the game more fun. They also blast out music at every opportunity!

  3. Those night sky shots are amazing. Well done with the awesome new purple camera.

  4. Great night time shots there Clicky, reminds me that I need a new camera too!

    Have a fun time in France xx

  5. Amazing moon/plant shots!! Hope you have a good time away. xx


Thanks so much for popping in to read my ramblings!
