This blog began life as a travel blog for my journey to Australia in 2006-7, following England in that winter’s Ashes series. England crashed 5-0 in that series, of course, and my decision to fly all that way “only for the cricket” was shown to be foolishness…. I kept the title of the blog as a reminder to take a more balanced approach in the future.

Speaking of balanced approaches, the blog reflects that, cricket still getting a mention from time to time, but more frequently posts are simply a wry look at everyday life.

To get a picture of the kind of things and people that feature in this blog, I’ve pulled together a few of my favourite posts from the last 10 years here.
