Mr. Watkins was working last night, so we were unable to have the usual Bomberman evening. As this was the case, I made my own way to town and met Simon at Sainsbury’s.

The original plan was to go to Nandos for dinner. We arrived to find a queue of people pouring out of the door. Not wanting to wait for hours to eat, we headed into town to find somewhere else.

While wandering the streets of Bath, I realised that the Barca/Real game was on at 9. Desperate to find somewhere showing the match which also served food, we went from pub to pub, hunting for a suitable setting. Alas we couldn’t find anywhere in the whole of Bath City Centre.

In the end we admitted defeat and went to California Kitchen in The Podium for dinner. Having had a pint or three earlier in the afternoon, while watching Bath City, I was rather thirsty and promptly ordered a couple of glasses of orange juice. Being a restaurant, supposedly specialising in Californian food, I was a little disappointed to find that instead of freshly squeezed OJ, I was presented with orange juice freshly opened from a carton! Had I had the nerve or indeed the energy to complain, I could have recreated that famous scene from Fawlty Towers involving John Cleese and the demanding American.

After a somewhat less than adequate meal, we left and headed back to my flat. The journey home was dangerous. We had to dodge wandering drunks, avoid chavs in Victoria Park and were even accosted by a wandering toad. It startled me, but scared Simon – especially when I threatened to pick it up.

I was rather disappointed that I missed the Barca match. After reading the match report, it sounds like I missed a cracker of a game.

  • 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.
