It’s been a few days since my last update and quite a lot has happened during my week off work.Firstly there has been all kinds of controversy surrounding Leeds United. The message board WACCOE was always the first with the information on the proposed takeover.

One minute the takeover was on the next it was off. At present it seems it’ll fall through and the Elland Road stadium may be sold. The next 6 hours could be very good or very bad for the club, worrying times indeed.We should know more at 1.00pm today about what is going on, not long left now…


Leeds United – half bust?

I attempted with success to do my Christmas shopping this week. I can’t stand shopping when it is busy so really wanted to avoid going to town in December where it would be manic, people seem to go crazy at that time of year.

Even going Christmas shopping in November had its stressful moments, most notably in The Disney Store. I was only in there for less than five minutes but the incessant, awful music they were piping out into the store was enough to make one kill themselves with a Mickey Mouse pencil, I’m sure the poor staff who work there must be deaf or robots.

The other day my Argos order for DVD shelves and a coffee maker arrived. Both were very good buys as the organisation of my large DVD collection has been greatly improved. The coffee maker makes some lovely fresh coffee as well although it has made my room smell like a Starbucks.

I went to see Bridget Jones 2: The Edge of Reason at the cinema last night. Good film, although I don’t think it was as good as the first one. Highlights for me included the parachuting scene at the start (watch out for the James Bond reference) and the fight between Hugh Grant and Colin Firth at the end (so everything but the staff in the middle!). At least I was able to enjoy the film without sitting on the edge of my seat like with The Grudge.

My TV is now in the hospital and the good news is that it can be repaired for under £50, I’ll be without it for a week or so, but I can always run it via my laptop so some good news there.

Finally just after my TV starts playing up, the Sky+ box seems to be on its last legs with only four weeks left on the warranty. I keep getting FAILED recordings which is very annoying especially as it meant I missed Little Britain, it had better record the repeat tonight as well as Peter Kay’s Max and Paddy on Channel 4

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
