Sean's Stories

Posted by sean on September 21, 2014 at 5:25 pm in Bath City, Wedding with No Comments


It hasn’t been a bad weekend by any means. Lots of wedding stuff and pleasing football results, so I will be ending Sunday a happy man.

Saturday, I attended the wedding of two of Claire’s friends. The ceremony was held at our local church, incidentally, where our own marriage will take place in nine months time. I don’t get to go to many weddings, and this is the first church wedding I remember attending in my lifetime, so not only did I get to see two happy people get married, but I picked up a lot of tips and ideas about the big day for Claire and myself.

The ceremony finished, leaving enough time for us to make it to BA2, where we watched Bath City comfortably dispose of Eastbourne Borough. A very satisfying and comfortable victory, which saw the debut for our new signing, Nick McCootie, who was brought in from a local side down t’road – Paulton Rovers. He has instantly become my new favourite player. He is built like an absolute tank. A beast of a man. Hopefully he’ll score lots and lots of goals for us. I carried on from a few weeks ago, with falling out with the visiting manager, who I directed a few choice words, which I would never dream of using at the church I attended earlier! Leeds won too, which was a welcome surprise, considering both of my clubs very rarely both win on the same day.

Saturday nights for me, generally consist of an evening in front of the television. This Saturday, however, was an exception. We were all packed into a taxi and driven up to Lansdown Cricket Club, for the evening party, held by the new Mr and Mrs, whose wedding I attended earlier in the day. Like the ceremony, it was well done and everyone seemed happy, which is nice for the Bride and Groom – you can’t ask for much more, really, and if my own wedding is as successful, I’ll be happy too.

Today has been more wedding stuff, this time our own. Claire, myself and members of our families, all met at the Limpley Stoke Hotel, where the wedding breakfast and evening reception will be held, to meet our new wedding planner (our original one left), and share our plans and wishes for the day. I thought the meeting went very well, our views were heard, taken on board and our planner gave us lots of positive ideas.

I’m now back home. Claire has gone out somewhere with her mum. Given that it has gone 5pm and is a Sunday, I would normally be getting ready for a return to work, after the weekend, but I have the week off work, so I’m still happy.

  • 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.
