No promises - this will be sporadic, selective and occasionally not updated at all for extended periods of time... but I hope to make some effort to track my experience of the Ashes this Christmas.
Saturday 18 December
It was snowing a little this morning... but it didn't stop. At all. Until it was dark. So any plans for travelling to Heathrow tomorrow morning are toast. We left home at 5pm, getting to the station (1.5 miles max) in about 40 minutes, and got to Slough 90 minutes later. A long wait and taxi trip onwards, we ended up at Caldicott school (our last-minute overnight base) after a 3 hour 30 minute trip, Three times as long as it should have been.
On the plus side, the snow's stopped, and Heathrow are hoping to be open tomorrow morning. It's the 10.50 to Kuala Lumpur tomorrow - I hope...
