Yesterday and today I went into town, my first venture into the city centre post-Christmas. I had received a few vouchers for Christmas and was keen to spend them in what was left of the January Sales.

A summary of what was purchased:

NEXT
Various T-Shirts going cheap in the sales. You can’t really go wrong with tees, unless they’re some obscure colour, have some strange logo plastered all over them or belong to Manchester United FC. I also bought a light grey hoodie. Although it wasn’t in the sale, I thought it was worthy of the £25 price tag. I had £5 left on my gift card, so bought a box of poker chips – totally random, but may come in useful.

WHITTARDS
For those not in the know, Whittards make fancy teas and coffees. Having been inspired by what my sister bought my aunt, I purchased a gift box of coffees from around the world. As they were half price, I bought two.

HMV
I had a HMV voucher to spend and no idea what to buy. I decided upon Fifa 07 for the Xbox 360. I already have this game on the PlayStation 2, but the 360 version boats superior graphics and online play.

WHSMITHS
A packet of playing cards for £1.99. Can be used with poker chips from Next.

Yesterday evening I discovered
1) The hoodie was too big. If I had wanted a big, baggy skaterboarders hoodie, I would have gone to a chav shop
2) Fifa 07 skipped on my Xbox. I also couldn’t get online to play on Xbox Live.
3) Worldwide coffee tastes of shit. Well the Jamaican coffee I tried does

Therefore
1) I returned to Next TODAY and swapped the hoodie for a smaller size
2) I also returned to HMV and swapped Fifa 07 for a working copy. I still cannot play it online.
3) I will not drink Jamaican coffee again

While in town today, not only did I return half of what I bought yesterday, I also made some other purchases…

– A stupid amount of DVDs from the HMV sale
– Bath’s very own version of Monopoly. Expect a full review after I play it soon.
– Some ornaments for my bedroom to surround the fish tank (a wooden lizard and fish)
– A slice of pizza from the pasty shop. The pizza was more like a deep fried slab of cheese – not nice. It ended up in the bin

  • 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.
