Cutest little puppy ever. Wanted to steal him, but decided it would probably be slightly morally wrong… Just slightly.

I think I’ve finally recovered from last week’s London cricket adventure to remember it and write it all down. It needs recorded somewhere that’s not just in my brain ‘cause that’s not the most reliable thing I’ve got.

So, day one at the cricket (which was day two of the match). Me, koakuma-tsuri and wecomeundone finally got to meet thelegendarypinksylure (exceptionally cool and lovely human being)! And we all chilled out by the Nursery Ground to watch the Middlesex boys warm up doing their ridiculous running and stretching and showing off their shoddy football skills. Then a wild Nick Compton appeared and walked right past us and KT very nearly died. Then we went and got settled front and centre in the Mound Stand and ‘cause Middlesex were fielding first we were greeted by Eoin Morgan on the boundary doing his usual thing of very deliberately lifting up his jumper to show off his little booty and putting his hands on his hips (shout out to Chris Rogers for always putting him on the boundary in front of us, it was much appreciated). It’s only once Middlesex were batting that we realised it was Eoin’s birthday so we didn’t get to wish him a happy birthday in the end which was a shame. But him and Sam Robson were constantly chatting and giggling away, it was adorable. Ben Stokes took his jumper off and left it on the boundary while he was bowling and forgot to take it in over lunch and when he came back out it was gone. So somebody stole Stokesy’s jumper. He wasn’t impressed. We spent the rest of the day wondering if he was cold.

After play ended we went to The Tavern, as is tradition, for a couple of drinks. All the Durham boys came in and were having a few beers out the back (and there was a lone John Simpson but apparently no other Middlesex boys) so they were walking back and forth past us all night, and I had a minor freak out every time Paul Collingwood walked past. Then I was very jealous of Syl when she went and chatted to Colly at the bar. We’d been chatting to some other Durham fans in the pub and when they found out me and Becky were from Cumbria they called Stokesy over to meet us when he was trying to leave so there was a rather award “Alright?”“Alright” exchange. And we asked him if he’d found his jumper which he hadn’t and was clearly still not impressed about. That was pretty much where that night ended.

The cricket itself wasn’t quite as amusing the next day, however the night in The Tavern was significantly more eventful. The Durham boys were in again, but this time so were most of the Middlesex boys. And where the Durham boys are obliged to wear their Durham polo shirts, the Middlesex boys are required to wear suits. And oh goddamn. Dawid Malan in a suit. Help me. Then when me and KT went to the bar we were faced with Eoin Morgan and Steven Finn in suits. Finny’s quiff was truly magnificent. They were seriously beautiful, I don’t know how we were still standing. Then I stepped backwards and someone walked into me and it wasn’t until after they’d gone past that KT informed me it was Colly. What even. Probably shouldn’t go into detail about what happened after that. A lot of alcohol was consumed. I’ll leave it at that.

There was more cricket the next day, and even more Tavern time, but I don’t have any interesting stories from that day. But Durham won! That’s the first time I’ve been to Lord’s and seen the team I was supporting win, so that was great. It was a fabulous few days. It was probably the last 4-day game I’ll be at this season, so it’s fair to say the LVCC has ended on a personal high for me. Thank you ladies for an awesome time, let me know if I’ve missed anything out!

First word to come to mind: Giraffe (there’s a blow-up giraffe in front of me, ‘kay?)

The last thing I googled was: Matt Bomer. He’s a beautiful man.

My most used phrase(s): Typing-wise I use the phrase ‘so much yes’ a lot. Speaking-wise I seem to just swear or blaspheme excessively.

One place that makes me happy and why: Being at Lord’s. Or any cricket ground really. Doesn’t get much better than being around cricket and friends.

How many blankets do I sleep under: Just my duvet.

Favourite beverage: Peach iced tea or anything with tequila in it (I’ve yet to try putting tequila in iced tea, it’s on my to-do list)

The last movie I watched in cinema was: I genuinely can’t remember.

Three things I can’t live without: Friends, cricket, dogs.

Something I plan on learning: To drive. At some point in the future…

A piece of advice for your followers: Don’t get too drunk in The Tavern. The bar staff will remember and it will be embarrassing.

My blog/s: This one, alexhalesfanclub (with Amy), bowledout (when I eventually have the time and mental energy to do proper cricket writing stuff), danisnotonfiregifs (don’t ask. I don’t post on it anymore, I just can’t bring myself to delete it), caitlindmusic, caninephotography, greyhoundpicnic and fdds2013 (both for photography jobs), aaaaand fuckyeahjarrodkimber (with KT, yet to be posted on)

You have to listen to this song: This specific cover of Let Her Go by Passenger. Cause it’s Tim Ambrose. As in the little bald adorable Warks/Sussex/England wicketkeeper. His voice is seriously lovely.

I tag thelegendarypinksylure, wecomeundone, lauderandlouder and sirlampsy211

This is literally all I’ve been greeted with whenever I’ve gone on to Tumblr over the last few days. I have to scroll down to find any posts ‘cause Jos’ new admirers are taking up my dashboard…..

Jos Buttler (x)

This was the Cardiff ODI that was exactly one year ago today. The day Jos hit a six into the River Taff and I reacted with:

Basically the day Jos Buttler ruined my life and started giving me feelings.

Whoever decided to film from this angle is my favourite person ever… [x]

I wondered why the notes on this had suddenly exploded, then I looked through them to see who’d been looking at it. Judging by this small selection, I think it’s fair to say Jos’ assets have been introduced to a whole new group of people….

Tell me you lovely ladies went to have a chat with the Durham boys (or gave a hug to Ben to help him deal with his tragic loss… ;p )

Wait, had you left when those Durham fans in the Tavern called Ben over to speak to us ‘cause they wanted him to meet his fellow Cumbrians? We didn’t hug him but we did ask him about his jumper. He still wasn’t impressed. We were in close proximity to many cricketers over the next couple of nights but we didn’t speak to them, we’d consumed too much alcohol not to embarrass ourselves…..
