I decided to take the plunge and take out a new mobile phone contract, complete with a brand new Samsung S8! I’ve been told it’s out for delivery today, and as my wife has a day off work, she’ll be able to take it for me. Exciting times.
Nine years ago today, I asked my now wife, Claire, to be my girlfriend. I must have made a good impression in taking her to The Boathouse pub for a meal, because she said yes. Just over four years later, we became engaged, and in 2015, got married.
Nine years on, we are both very happy and in love. We have a house together and our relationship is still going strong.
Leeds United have picked the worst possible time to start playing crap. After a season of success and competing in the play off positions, they’ve started losing games. Yesterday afternoon, Leeds lost at home to Wolves. They are now outside the play offs, for the first time in months. There’s only three games left. Don’t do this to me, Leeds!
We decided to go all posh last week, and buy our online shop from Ocado. Tesco had really annoyed me, by not only delivering me mouldy oranges one week, but by sending me further putrid fruit the following order!
Ocado source a lot of their food from Waitrose, which is very expensive. I needed to buy a couple of ready meals, which were of good quality, but not stupidly priced. I found some, which were 2 for £6. Not cheap, but considering some of the other ‘deals’ were priced at over £10, I had little choice.
While unpacking the shopping, Claire asked why I had bought gluten and dairy free food. I have no allergies and will generally eat anything, besides fish. It turns out the nice looking ready meals I had bought were for people with special dietary requirements.
Last night, I ate a Thai Green Curry. The last time I had one of these, it was nice and creamy. How could they make a cream curry with no milk? The curry was horrible, and the vast majority of it went in the bin. I’ve got a chicken tikka masala tonight – again, dairy free. I don’t have high hopes.
Well that was unexpected. Probably a shock to the opposition too. Any rivals to the Tories have little time to prepare a decent campaign. This election will basically secure the Tories for another term. Sigh. The only good that can come from this is if my local MP (a Tory), is voted out.
On this website, you’ll find me blogging (almost) daily about everyday life, living in Bath, working with computers, and the occasional bit of football stuff thrown in.
