You may have noticed that this blog has been rather fading away this month. Your correspondent has – and continues to be – preoccupied with work of the paid variety and the family computer has been occupied for reasons related to the extended GCSE season.
I hope to resume a more normal service next month. The GCSEs are finished, the immediate work-related pressure should have slackened by then, Leicestershire’s recent victory in the exciting new 8/8 format may have dispersed the miasma of gloom hanging over Grace Road and I’m sure we’re in for a record-breaking July (perhaps even in a Good Way).
But I’m afraid this will have to do for the moment – a slightly premature Stump Watch. Encouraging, though, that something that so recently looked dead and gone can recover so soon. I shall endeavour to take it as an example.
