NWG has been keeping something from you. In 2011 she had an adventure in Sri Lanka. She saw turtles, ate lots of curry, but most excitingly she had a tour of the cricket ground in Galle. And not just any tour.

The tour.

NWG was very lucky as the hotel manager knew the security guard at the ground and so offered NWG and her boyfriend (yes readers, it's happened. Someone in the world likes her, it's a surprise to us all) an all-access tour.

The above picture was taken in the away dressing room. Yes. She'll repeat that. The AWAY DRESSING ROOM. And what you can see on the mirror is the hydration list of the Australian team who were the last team to play there.

Now, not only was NWG thrilled at her tour. She stood in the showers. She sat in the seats looking out at the ground where the team would sit. She took the walk that the batsmen would take to get down to the middle. She was even allowed in the Home dressing room. But finding this scribble on the mirror really was brilliant.

For a start she realises why Ricky Ponting hasn't been doing well. It's because he hasn't been drinking anything. And, most likely, forcing Michael Clarke to do the same (peer pressure is a crime). But also, she now knows that her knowledge of the Australian team's nicknames is lacking.

Who is Frosty? Someone must answer her.

2012 has been a (quiet) blast

Goodness. It's been a while.

So much has changed.

And 2012 is almost over.

But NWG is back. And this time she means it.

In order to celebrate her return she's decided on the following:

1. Stop the annoying spammers from posting on her site.
2. Celebrate Alastair Cook more. NWG likes him a lot. This picture was probably just after he realised KP was back in the team.
3. Mourn the ending of Andrew Strauss' captaincy. He really was great. Thanks for everything Andrew.
4. Look forward to 2013. Mainly because it's the Ashes again. Twice.
5. Wonder more about Shane Warne's face. It is becoming more and more disturbing. Clearly Liz is not thinking of his rugged image (read bloated).
6. Appreciate that KP is only good for his runs scoring. If you've learnt anything by now, it's that NWG holds a grudge. Never forgive. Never forget. At least take his phone off him while he wears his England outfit. And tell him to open his eyes.
7. Consider doing a podcast.
8. Make sure that no cricketer retires obviously so broke that he has to start a new career as a boxer. This is wrong on many levels and may deserve its own post.

And yes, before you ask. NWG has her Oval tickets for the Ashes. She is also considering going to Australia and watch a bit over there. She just has to save her pennies and wish for a miracle.
