Drop us a holiday line about cricket and leftovers from wherever you are


Very keen to hear how you are experiencing Boxing Day, where, who with, what the leftovers are, how you are taking in the cricket.

This could develop into a national profile. (Send a photo)

    Last session of the cricket. Brother-in-law and father-in-law both asleep. Understandable. Our boys are in the pool. Ham and salad eaten for lunch. Poms are terrified to play a shot.

    Leftover turkey and all home grown salad while watching day 1 on the box. Washed down with some VB’s. Came down to Melbourne tonight with one of the brothers-in-law, staying in Elwood before heading off to the ‘G tomorrow. Can’t wait.
