What an amazing four days of cricket at the Oval, ending in an England win that was very hard to foresee after the Headingley debacle. England played with real fire - it was a joy to behold. Please let it not be another false dawn!
On the sporting front, big respect to Jess Ennis as well for her heptathlon win in Berlin. It's always good to see fellow Yorkshire folk getting on, and I love the fact that she speaks exactly like the Sheffield branch of my family - it's not an accent I hear too often in Fife!
