Yesterday evening was the last ever “Friday Night Bomberman Session” at Newbridge Hill. It was a pretty standard affair, with screaming, acts of violence and wine spillages kept to a minimum.

Prior to Bomberman, I went to town. First of all to sign the final contracts for my new flat which I moving into next Saturday. I then met Watkins and we went to watch Hot Fuzz at the cinema.

Hot Fuzz is a new comedy film starring Sean Penn. It has the comic violence of Shaun of the Dead, the quirkiness and bizarre situations of Pheonix Nights and strange West Country humour like in The Vicar of Dibley (except this was actually funny). The film was primarily shot in Wells, which is just a short drive away from Bath and is Mr. Watkins’ hometown. Overall, an excellent film, probably the best I have seen in over two years and definitely one for the DVD collection.

After the cinema, we walked to Sainsbury’s to rescue Simon from the cider drinking chavs, incontinent old people and teenage mums who he was assisting at the self-service checkout.

Being a model professional, Simon refused to leave early, so Watkins and I were forced to amuse ourselves by wandering around the Sainsbury’s lobby. We found a cool little machine which takes your money and then prints off a food voucher or, if you’re feeling generous, makes a donation to charity. Watkins decided to make a very charitable donation of 1 English penny. I beat him and donated double that – I even authorised Gift Aid (every fraction of a penny helps). Next month I will be able to watch Comic Relief, safe in the knowledge I donated to the cause.

When Simon eventually did finish for the day, we went to Nandos for some tasty Peri Peri Chicken and Spicy Rice.

And that was my evening. I’m off out soon, heading down to Twerton Park to cheer on the mighty Bath City in their game against Banbury (who the fuck are they?). Good luck to Leeds this afternoon. They play the sheep shagging Cardiff City – a team Leeds have struggled against over the last few years.

COME ON WHITES! COME ON STRIPES!

  • 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.
