So, my plan this morning had been to get up, have breakfast, go to Hell On Earth (aka Tesco), come back and then sunbathe for the rest of the day.

However, my plan has had to be revised now because Dexter is in a lot of discomfort and having looked at him, we now think there is nothing wrong with his back or neck and that actually, he's got an infection around his bottom, poor thing. I've managed to cut away some of the fur and it looks very inflamed, and it's a bit sticky and smelly. So Tesco has been put on hold because I'm going back to the vet at 11.10am for an emergency appointment. Nightmare!

I'm back from the vet - Dexter has been diagnosed with a bad back and neck. He has been prescribed the canine equivalent of bed rest - no walks for a week, no jumping around, no stairs, etc. Poor chap!

Wow, what a game that was! After the batting collapse of Wednesday evening I didn't think we had much chance, and when Marcus and Nick Compton got out early doors, I thought our task was hopeless. But it ended up being the Zander and Kieron show - Kieron got 54 from 25 balls and Zander finished on 95 not out, off 49 balls! It was just awesome batting - a real treat! Oh, and Tregs took a stunning catch as well! Good times!!

We're just on the way home now - just past Haldon Hill, so another 40 minutes should hopefully do it. I'm tempted to have KFC when we get back to Plymouth...

One thing I will be having is a glass or two of wine, because beating Gloucestershire is something that must be celebrated!!

So, Somerset have been set a target of 200. We are currently 49-2 off 5.5 overs. I think it's fair to say this isn't looking good...

They're playing that dreadful Black Eyed Peas song over the PA system. We always lose when they play that. Always.

Also, Steve Kirby is playing. *quakes*

Still, at least it's not raining - yet...

Well, my working week is now done and I'm up at Taunton, about to have some lunch, washed down by the first beer of the weekend! The weather is warm but cloudy. I have a horrible feeling there may be some rain around later...

I am writing this update from the top deck of a bus, at the same time as listening to music, using my iPhone! What a genius piece of kit!! Also a genius piece of kit is my new set of noise reducing earphones, which are doing a stonking job of drowning out the noise that is coming from the child on the seat opposite mine.

I am on the bus this morning because we're off to Taunton this afternoon and mum is fetching me from the office. We play Gloucestershire this evening. After Wednesday's performance, I am less than confident of a Somerset victory...

So, that's why I'm on the bus this morning. And the reason I'm on the bus at 9.21am instead of at work is that I had an appointment at the doc's this morning, to get my ears syringed. Nice... Still, it's done now, and I can hear properly again - huzzah!!

I've just this minute sat down to watch Yorkshire v Lancashire, and must ask a question: What the fuck are Yorkshire wearing???

Also, I found out why Worcestershire are wearing the camouflage. It's because they're raising money for Help For Heroes. I won't laugh at them next time I see them, now that I know that.

Right. I do believe it's time for pizza and beer!!

I was watching something on telly about a week ago and someone on the show mentioned the phrase 'the elephant in the room'. I hadn't heard it in ages and so imagine my surprise when the following day, whilst reading The Book of Tomorrow by Cecelia Ahern, I discovered that that was the title of one of the chapters. Then imagine my further surprise when the phrase also cropped up in the next book I read, The Neighbour by Lisa Gardner. And now, in this Harlan Coben book, it's come up again! How spooky is that?

I decided tonight that Dexter could sleep downstairs if he wanted as he was looking pretty washed out after his morphine shot. But he's brought himself up and is now sitting in the middle of the room, looking like an extra from Pet Sematary, all vacant and weird. I hope he doesn't go completely wrong and bite me to death in the night!
