So, it now looks like the Championship season will be played out, with each club fulfilling their remaining nine games.

Up until the time football was suspended in March, I maintained that Leeds would find a way to bottle promotion – despite the fact they’re sitting pretty at the top of the league.

Many may call me a pessimist <insert expletive of your choice>. I prefer to refer to myself as a realist, who has supported Leeds United for far too long – throughout all the ups and downs… and downs and downs and downs.

I will admit, I did get a bit giddy and dared to dream about Leeds playing the giants of Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester City and… err… AFC Bournemouth next season. However, that was only when it looked like the remainder of the current campaign would be curtailed, meaning that Leeds would win promotion without needing to kick a ball.

Now it looks like Leeds will get another opportunity to screw things up. Shitting buggery!

20th of June is when the annual collapse is set to start. My wedding anniversary, no less. If following tradition, Claire and I should give and receive wooden gifts. It would be more fitting if it was a glass anniversary, due to the number of glass bottles which Leeds will be bottling.

That was terrible, Sean. I’m so sorry, everybody…

When Claire told me that there had been trouble in Durdle Door yesterday, I didn’t believe her. I had never heard of such a place, and thought Durdle Door was a character from Harry Potter.

My wife explained to me that it is an area of Dorset. Hundreds, if not thousands, of people who can only be described as thoughtless, selfish cretins descended upon the beautiful beach.

Some wannabe Darwin Award winners thought that it would be a good idea to jump off a cliff into the water. I know that there is a social media trend of telling nasty or idiotic people to “get in the sea”, but they’re not supposed to take it literally!

As a result of their ‘stunt’, police and ambulance helicopters were deployed. This caused those on the beach – most of who were already failing to observe social distancing rules – to become even more compressed.

Here they all are, in a warn, cosy, covid-spreading group. Cute.

No doubt the many families who visited the beach yesterday, will be visiting their grandparents for Sunday roast. Granny and Grandad are far too old and frail to visit the seaside, but a family can never miss out on roast beef, Bisto and roasties! Plus, what’s a bit of coronavirus between loved ones?

The government announced that between Thursday and Friday, 324 people died of Covid19, taking the total beyond 38,000.

Had this happened in April, we would be mortified by the tragedy and loss of life.

It now seems that many in society have a “meh” attitude towards the figure; while those in government slap each other on the back, congratulating themselves that “only” 324 people are dead.

Jolly good show! Or as I see it, beyond abhorrent.

It’s been rather warm lately – or as I prefer to describe it, “fucking boiling”.

At least Bath and North East Somerset Council have kindly put up a new sign on our street…

Today’s blog post is for anyone who lives in a cave and has therefore not seen this example of human genius…

  • 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.
