More from Cornwall (2)
I could waste a lot of time if we had Sky Sports at home. I'm a sad 'bloke' who likes to watch sport as a sort of catharsis for real life. To be honest, I prefer to play than watch. But watching is OK.
Today I've been watching football (Liverpool vs. Chelsea, City vs. Stoke) and cricket (the Stanford 20/20). It's great. I've never really watched 20/20 cricket before, but I think it's wonderful, although I still think there's something special about two-innings cricket that can last five days at Test level, especially in our hasty world where there's never time for anything.
It's been a mixed day here in Cornwall, as most days are with our family. Our two boys are emotionally highly volatile, and while they can both be lovely, they can be absolutely appalling. The combination of the two together is particularly challenging. That's one of the reasons that the older boy is now at boarding school.
Highlights today included a rain-soaked walk around the coast path (pictured is our village from the top of the cliff), cooking chinese food together as a family, and a nice time in the hot tub with the sea raging not too far away. We also did some crab catching, and it took me a while to summon up the courage to pick up the individual pictured.
We're almost out of wine.
