Knees, Ashes and Lots of Other Stuff

Fear not readers, NWG has not fallen off the side of the earth, she has, like all the greats in the world, had knee surgery.

And no, she has not, like one less than brilliant cricketer moved to Dubai to get a tan and ride camels, nor has she ditched the great game to eat cakes and pretend to be funny with Aggers.

She has just been lying rather still.

This has had its advantages.

Firstly, NWG has a new appreciation for scones. They are delicious. Secondly, NWG has watched way too much tv. This has included Big Brother (yes, she knows, it's rubbish, but still she has been very bored) and Come Dine With Me which she now believes to be the best thing in the world and should now most definitely and without fail have a cricketers special (imagine Matthew Hoggard's delightful dinner conversation and wonderful trifle).

Thirdly, and most importantly, she is now almost positive that England will win the Ashes. This is based almost entirely on NWG making the enormous journey to Australia (think of the effort).

NWG will now go and continue to lie down, mull over daytime TV and imagine how she will celebrate the Ashes in her codeine-stupor.

Come Dine With Me's not fair. The best host doesn't win because some of the misers deduct points for trivial things. Not fair.

Sorry Mare, I didn't know you had knee surgery. I thought you just couldn't be bothered. I take back all those nasty things I thought about you.

That is true Stani, NWG would still love a cricket CDWM.

And no, it was not because she couldn't be bothered to write a post. She would never abandon her blog. It's the only thing that keeps the England cricket team going.

And her knee hurts. And she's bored.

NWG should pretend to be like the great cricketer and launch herself into a hectic rehab, then over-exerting and having surgery all over again. She needs to keep stuffing herself on pies and scones to get the Flintoffesque shape.
