It rolls around so quickly. All that build up in the shops and the media and its here before you know it.
Of course I’m talking about the Australian cricket season and the WACA test in particular.
It’s now 8 test matches in a row (live together) and the upgrade to members is once again worth it. Today was 31 which felt cool against yesterday’s 39 (that’s about 93 for you Fahrenheit Folks!) Being members means we have shade, an air conditioned bar and a choice of full strength beers.
I also bought a new cushion which has a handy handle to soften up the plastic chairs. However Tina-cat has decided is her new bed.
So while there has been a little knitting (when my fingers haven’t been sweating on the yarn) it’s been gift knitting so no spoilers.
It has been an enjoyable albeit sweaty few days though.
By the end of the first day I was finding more and more unique ways of being comfortable on plastic chairs.
A massive highlight was David Warner hitting a double century and catching up on with an old Twitter friend.
The second day we were in early and watched the team warm up and went past the classic WACA scoreboard. I felt for the scorers who spend all day inside it keeping us all updated.
Today (the third day) we were both feeling a little tired so we watched from the seats for a bit but then retreated to the deck chairs to watch it on the big screen. We ended with a cozy setup with the radio on, sitting on deck chairs and right next to the bar.
With the actual game looking rather evenly poised let’s see what Day 4 & 5 have in store! #cmonaussies!!
(For those wondering – my lipstick is Rimmel 16hr Provocalips in colourway 550 Play With Fire. I 100% recommend! It has mostly been flawless so far although beauty blogger I am not.)
