Sean's Stories

Heard from a group of students while shopping in Sainsbury’s yesterday in the bakery aisle.
“What’s wrong with that bread?”
“That bread’s not gone off. It’s just brown!”

And my stupid moment of the week… jumping out of bed in the middle of the night after dreaming a massive spider was dangling from my bedroom ceiling. I blame this clip which appeared on Friday night’s edition of Rude Tube.

There will be more of a write up about today, my birthday, tomorrow.

However, yet again I am leaving it late for a Saturday blog as I will be going out at 8.

As was mentioned yesterday, there was no Bath City game to go to today, although I did go to Twerton Park to watch the City Academy play. It was free to get in and provided something of a football fix. It wasn’t the real thing, but like methadone for a crack addict, it provided a light relief. I watched the first half of game with a fellow City fan also mad enough to come down. The final 45 minutes I sat in the posh seats (yes, Twerton Park does have some) with the first team manager – one of the perks of following a non-league club.

I’ve been suffering with a cold for the rest of the day. I think this is the first time I have been unwell on my birthday during my life. Still, I’ll still go out this evening and infect everyone. A bottle of Sheppys and some curry or pizza will also help – after all, alcohol and junk food are proven to fix most ailments known to man.

Despite saying I would write about my birthday tomorrow, I think I have covered most things in tonight’s blog, with 21 minutes to spare before my ‘going out’ time.

It is Saturday tomorrow. Well, in a few minutes actually. I’ve left it very late to blog tonight, but am still proud of the achievement of managing to blog everyday throughout 2011. Will it last throughout the whole year? I doubt it.

As well as being the start of the weekend, it is also my birthday tomorrow. Unfortunately, there will be no party with cake, jelly and ice cream. There won’t even be pass the parcel. My birthday will be pretty much like a normal Saturday. In fact, it won’t as Bath City don’t have a game, which is quite shit.

The afternoon will instead be spent with my mates Jeff Stelling and Chris Kamara. Basically watching Sky Sports News on an internet stream. Hopefully Arsenal will then give me a birthday present by beating Manchester United at tea time. I’ll then see Simon and John in the evening.

If anyone is stuck for things to get me, I am sure you can still buy tickets to the Champions League Final on eBay. I think the cheap £175 tickets have all sold out, but the more expensive ones are probably still on sale. The iPad 2 is out now and as I’m learning to drive and will hopefully have a licence by this time next year, a car would be nice. Nothing fancy, a BMW Z4 will do. Seriously, I don’t even know if that’s a good car. For all I know, you may get faster speeds from a combine harvester. The car does look cool though, and if I dressed myself in tuxedo and drank vodka while driving it, I think I would look a little like James Bond.

More tea/coffee shops – but more problems

As a regular Bathonian who partakes of light refreshment, I would comment that more and more tea and coffee houses are opening up.

Unfortunately for older people some of these now require their customers to mount steep stairs whereas those establishments at lower levels often serve coffee in what seems to be buckets (mainly used by younger people and those who like to walk about with plastic beakers).

In one particular establishment after two flights of stairs and surrounded by blue walls lacking ambience, the service was provided by young girls. They were dressed in what appeared to be traditional dress from the front – but was more like hospital gowns from the rear showing lots of leg and short skirts.

With the prices being charged surely it would cost little to get the dresses right?

Gotta love the letters page in the Bath Chronicle.

Unfortunately I will be unable to attend yet another Bath City fixture which I was looking forward to at the start of the season – the mammoth trip to Geordie Land ‘Gateshead’.

Due to Gateshead progressing in the FA Trophy, our original game which was scheduled for a Saturday has been changed and will now be played on a Monday night in April. Leaving Bath at 11am and getting back at 5am the next day is a bridge too far and besides, I can’t get time off work.

I guess I’ll have to wait until next season before I can visit the land of Ant & Dec, Alan Shearer and Byker Grove.


If you love Geordies too, or you simply enjoy animal abuse, this dog t-shirt can be purchased here.

  • 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.
