Last night’s trip to Kettering was a complete disaster. OK, there wasn’t a major earthquake or volcanic eruption in the heart of Northamptonshire, leaving hundreds dead and thousands more in need of help from The Red Cross. But things were close to that on the catastrophe scale.

We missed the kick off. Not due to going the wrong way, traffic problems or cows on the road; but because the coach broke down en route. I say the coach broke down – one of the tyres attached to the wheel of the coach got punctured on the motorway.

Therefore, we spent over an hour at a service station, eating KFC. That meal of fried chicken would be the highlight of the entire day. We then waited for some mechanic to come and fix the tyre. He was supposed to be coming from Birmingham, but judging by the time it took to get to the stranded party of football supporters, I suspect he drove down from Aberdeen.


We got to the match having missed the first 10 minutes. It would have been nice to of missed 15 as no sooner had we settled into the stand when Bath City gave away a penalty, which Kettering duly converted.

An equaliser for Bath City lightened the spirits, but the feeling that ‘this trip is shit and a waste of time & money’, returned when Kettering scored a last minute winner.

A lovely 3+ hour journey awaited us. Thankfully, no knives/broken bottles/alligators were on the road this time to tear apart another tyre. That would have rounded things off perfectly.

    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.
