That was pleasant; morning spent out in the sun watching my son play his first proper cricket match. Definitely taking more of a picnic next time.

Sad times in our household this morning: daughter's gerbil passed away during the night. He was a rescue gerbil. Gerbils are meant to be social creatures but he'd had been bullied a lot by his siblings so had to live alone. He was very sweet. RIP Little Fat Rick.

And each kiss an inspiration
But that was long ago
And now my consolation
Is in the stardust…"
