Ah ... Happy Day!  
I work with two other Brits. And several ardent Australian cricket tragics. We are fond of the latter. This is why we had to leave the office to sing songs and leap into the air and laugh and smile. Though if I read one more 'The last time this happened I was one year old/as yet unborn/sitting on my father's knee', I may sink into a grumble. I was not quite as old as shocolate , and we were both proper grown-ups. Still, wemyss  has the kindness to have been even slightly older than that -- such a thoughtful soul.

And Cook as man of the series -- oh so true, in every way!

I have already failed in keeping up to date with birthday wishes for the year (no one is surprised), but a very happy one to noeon  -- may this year be staggeringly fabulous, you deserve it! Here, I feel sure that this will kick it off in the right way:

As our fave work Aussie says: 'He's like your Don Bradman. Except he's really hot.'

Happy birthday for today, too, to ye_olde_miss_c  -- I miss you! See you at Easter! And for yesterday to the lovely foi_nefaste , I hope you're having a good holiday season! Also to fallinskye  and japanimecrazed  -- I know your quiet lurkery ways mean that you're unlikely to read this, but I hope the present fairies were kind to you both. We January birthday people need to look out for each other, as oncelikeshari  reminds me. (You're tomorrow, I'll remember that one!)

He's really, really hot, and he bats so wonderfully!

Here in the US cricket is, shall we say, somewhat under-reported. However, I did think of you this morning as our National Public Radio carried a segment describing the importance of this years Ashes. And, not to invite a grumble, but the last time NPR carried a cricket segment... well, you get the idea.

A little Cooky in return
Ooooh! What a handsome present! Thank you so much for the good wishes and the loveliness, dear one :)))

I know I should be putting up Ashes photos, but I love this one.

<3<3<3 Thank you again!

You mean you don't think Trott is pretty?
