Bits and Bobs

Another personal milestone this week. Julian Housing have closed my file as I am now established in my own flat and clearly not at this stage in need of further assitance.

England are yet again responding to a setback as they did at Melbourne after the Perth nightmare. Pakistan are now four down in their second innings and have not wiped off the arrears. Stuart Broad in particular is having a superb match – four first innings wickets and a hard hitting 58 which was largely responsible for the first innings lead.

Meanwhile in Melbourne Andrew Murray is giving a very good account odf himself against world number one Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open semi final (the winner gets to play world number two Rafael Nadal in the final).

Todays view from the rooftops takes in both the Clifton House tower and the Granaries, under a deceptively benign looking sky. The wind has a definite bite to it, which in January in Kings Lynn is not good news.
