Australia vs India cricket commentary 🏏

Great to see BBC Radio 5 Sports Extra broadcasting ABC Grandstand’s live ball by ball coverage of the Australia vs India cricket Test series. I listened to a couple of hours of it when I couldn’t sleep in the early hours of this morning. Good quality commentary and good to see that Alison Mitchell is part of ABC’s commentary team. Will enjoy more during the nights to come, I’m sure.

A day in Nottingham – trams, Nottingham Trent University Open Day and Nottingham Contemporary art gallery.

Blimey! Alerts on my phone were going crazy!

Aston Villa 5-5 Nottingham Forest – Tammy Abraham scores four in 10-goal draw ⚽

Value for money, but unfortunately Villa had two goals disallowed in the final few minutes :(

Garden casualty in today’s strong winds.

I don’t think I want to see Mastodon content in the (app or web) Discover sections, but I’m enjoying seeing photos from Mastodon users I follow appear in the Sunlit app Timeline.

Middle of November and it’s warm enough to spend the afternoon sitting in the garden.

ICC Women’s World Twenty20 2018 🏏 starts today – see tournament guide and players to watch and full fixture list. Should be some good cricket to watch and the bonus for me is that most matches are being broadcast live at fairly decent times in the UK.

Found a minor niggle with the new Mastodon features. Set up my ActivityPub/Mastodon-compatible username as, but am finding in Mastodon this is appearing as - any possible reason for this change of case @manton?

Alone for my evening meal tonight, so I cooked moules marinière.
