Perfect setting for semi-final
So we're through to the Twenty20 semi-finals and will be playing at The Oval on Friday - for me, it's the perfect setting, my home ground, right where I grew up.
I know it's going to be a top-class wicket which should allow us to show off our skills before the men's game later in the afternoon.
We beat Pakistan by 60-odd runs in our final group game but didn't perform anywhere near our best and to get through to the final on Sunday we know we'll have to play much better against the Australians.
It's been a great competition so far. We had an official 'garden party' to open the women's tournament at Somerset's County Ground but were soon back into a similar routine to the World Cup earlier in the year - play, train, play, train, with little time off.
Unfortunately, I tweaked my hamstring, which meant I could train, but not sprint, so the last few days have been a little frustrating but have made me appreciate the benefits of having a full-time physio and strength and conditioning coach on board.
I am now back up to full speed thanks to the correct treatment and training programme - a luxury we have only had in the last six months, but which is obviously paying off and helping keep the team successful.
Ahead of our opening game against India, I was brimming with excitement. There were a lot of people in the ground when we arrived and it continued to fill as we warmed up.
There were cheers for us from all over the ground and although India can be a tough team to beat, we did so in style by 10 wickets, setting our mark on the tournament and providing a good buzz in the camp.
Looking back a year or so, we were lucky to fill even one stand, let along the whole ground and it's great for women's cricket that so many girls were there watching - I hope it continues for many years to come.
Next day, there was a bit of amazing news - that Lottie (Charlotte Edwards), our captain, had been awarded an MBE. I hadn't read the morning paper and when it was announced to the team, we were all absolutely delighted.
What can you say - there's no doubt she deserves it for what she has given the game, and her award also demonstrates how far the profile of women's cricket has risen.
Lottie has already lifted one trophy this year - and we're all determined to get past the Aussies and help her pick up another at Lord's on Sunday.
