NWG just wanted to say Happy New Year to all. She hopes you all have a very happy 2010, but most of all she hopes England cricket continues having a winning streak...
(and no, she's not sure why she chose this picture, before you ask.)

Well, there we are then. England win.
Wait. England managed to thrash South Africa by an innings.
That kind of thing doesn't happen every day. In fact, it hardly ever happens.
And whatever the result for the next Test, England have had a pretty wonderful year.
Swann has had a fabulous year.
And ok, the Test was wrapped up pretty early this morning, and no, NWG may have not watched it live (late night), but waking up to great news is a rather rare event.
Hurray for England. And Swann. And Strauss. And Broad. And Matthew Hoggard (did anyone see him joining the Barmy Army and having a sing song? Genius.)

Is there anything better? Whilst it's cold, rainy and did NWG mention cold? Those England boys, having digested their turkey, and make the effort to entertain us.
And it's not going too badly, either.
Graeme Swann is soon becoming one of NWG's favourites. Yes, he isn't liked by everyone. NWG can understand he's a bit of a marmite fixture, but he's actually rather good. And he has a wicked smile, which NWG quite likes.
And let's not forget Andrew Strauss. Fastest Test 50. Nice.
