I got my new 2005-2007 England Football Shirt yesterday. Pretty nice design, similar to the one used in Euro ’96, however I do prefer the last one. If anything this new one is too plain and the material doesn’t seem as good, although manufacturers Umbro will argue that it is “new technology for sportswear” or some bollocks like that.

England are of course playing Northern Ireland tomorrow in a World Cup 2006 qualifier. They should win this easily, even though the mighty David Healy is playing for N. Ireland. Still, you never can tell with England, they (usually) do great against the tough teams and play crap against the minnows. No disrespect to N. Ireland just basing this upon games won-lost-drawn.

Moving on from football, I went shopping in Sainsbury’s yesterday evening an hour or so before closing. The shop is closed today as it is Good Friday, as this was the case everyone seemed to have lost the plot. They were buying trolley loads of… well rubbish!

I think that a common and highly bizarre fear in this country is that when a Bank Holiday is coming up there is a mass panic and people stock pile just in case they need that extra something on the day the supermarkets are closed!

Here’s a typical scenario you could expect to see in a supermarket the day before a Bank Holiday weekend…

Husband: “Shall we buy this pack of Beef suet?”

Wife: “What’s Beef suet?”

Husband: “Dunno love, but remember the shops are closed tomorrow, if we need it how in the hell would we buy it!!??”

Wife: “Oh my God George, you’re right! Quick buy packet of that crystallised ginger while your at it, actually make it 5 packs! You never know who might drop in tomorrow”

Madness!

  • 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.
