I caught the tail-end of the Formula 1 this morning. That English wonder-kid who everyone is going on about, Lewis Hamilton, won the race. Apparently, if he does anything but crash his car into a duck pond in the final race of the season, he will become world champion. However, Lewis is English, and ‘English’ and ‘World Champion’ don’t exactly go together. You just know it’s going to go wrong…

Hamilton came very close to winning the championship last year, but in typical English fashion, did the F1 equivalent of David Beckham missing a penalty and lost at the final hurdle. I bet the basement of his house is full of bottles of champagne (and ice buckets), never opened. Still, if he never wins anything, at least he’ll have some vintage bubbly he can sell on eBay.

It must be difficult for young Lewis. Not only is he travelling the world driving fast cars, but he has to turn out every week for Arsenal and even play for the England national football team. Sure, he goes under his alias ‘Theo Walcott’, but have you ever seen them in the same room together?

Still, good luck for the final race, Hammo. You may be the underdog (by default – being English), but we all believe in you… ahem.

Good luck, Theo!

    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.
