Tomorrow I am off to Oxford for a party. I’ll be back home on Saturday. I could spend a lot of the weekend doing stuff. There’s the Bath Coffee Festival and the Love Food Festival in Bristol to think about. Probably, however, I will go home and collapse on Saturday. And on Sunday I’ll start getting the cottage organized and cheer on England in the Twenty20 World Cup Final.
Yes, you did read that correctly. The England cricket team are in the final of an international event. They will either play Australia or the current cup holders, Pakistan, who play their semi-final tomorrow. The fast Barbados pitch will favor the Australian bowlers, so odds on an apocalypse on Monday are not as good as you might think.
