good morning twix ....home early ?? and well done !!
Hiya Steff and twix, two I knew and two I didn't.

Well done, twix.
Hello all x

Well done Twix x
Good morning boys and girls.

Thanks Steff, we didn't get out tonight, although we were going to celebrate the arrival of one guys grandchild, we heard this evening that the wife of one of our group was rushed to hospital this morning. As we are all very close friends, we didn't really feel in the mood for a boozy zoom evening.
I'm gonna moan again!

I've spent thousands of hours teaching cricket and umpiring cricket matches and the use of 'ground', to describe the area behind the popping crease, is unknown to me (and, as far as I can work out, to Mr Google too!).

Steff is going to think that I'm always grumpy but that just ain't true! I'm only grumpy 99.9% of the time!

I'm sorry that your boozy Zoom evening had to be called off, Twix, but did you still manage a boozy evening (minus Zoom), anyway? ;-)
Pssst Chris, thats one of the two that I didn't know
Hi Tony. I had to think twice about 17across, first thoughts being 'canvas' but that didn't ring any bells with regard to cricketing terms!
Hi Chris. I stayed strictly teetotal this evening. With regard to the cricket, the commentator would often say 'he made his ground' and you always have to ground your bat .I haven't played for the best part of 30 years (which was only one game) and probably about 53 years previous to that when I used to play for my local British Legion branch team (but we were much better at darts !!).
I'm still not convinced by the cricket definition, Twix. I hope that the clues I provide in the crosswords I compile aren't as weak as that!

Well done for staying sober. I've had half a bottle of wine tonight. Given that it was the bottle I bought for Christmas lunch, but never got around to drinking until now, I probably don't qualify as an alcoholic quite yet ;-)

I was never a great cricket player (although I hope that I was a reasonably good umpire) but I was our college darts champion ; -)
Difficult one, twix. I haven't played cricket since I left school ( about two hundred years ago ) soooo I don't know if terminology has changed since then. Congrats to the grandparents and I hope the wife of your friend comes through OK. And well done for not getting to boozy.
