snowdrops

So it starts off this morning all snowy and cold in these parts not least in Diddington churchyard where the snowdrops were mostly hidden by the white fluffy stuff. But there is a quietness which takes over the world covered  in snow and slows us down – though most of us are too fed up with the wintriness that we moan and wish it would all go away……

Tomorrow is a meeting in the grounds of the old hall at Diddington about the Squire’s XI v The Vicar’s XI cricket match being held this summer.

Last year the Vicar bowled out at least one member of the gentry (overarm) and intends to do so again.  The one that doesnt do well at this event is the poor old pig that gets roasted for the hogroast lunch.

For my oversees readers – all this still happens ina quiet corner of England – though to be sure 130 years ago the Vicar would not  have been a woman!

  1. But perhaps in the not far distant future, the Bishop could be invited to play if SHE has space in HER diary!
