Saturday night. We arrived home from football, freezing cold, having endured a 0-0 draw against Bognor Regis Town. We were greeted by what looked like a scene from The Bill – police and dogs everywhere. A neighbour told us how a man was wrestled to the floor by an officer, less than an hour earlier. A door mat and step outside our house had been disturbed, and the back gate unlocked! By this point, I was getting more than a little worried. What the hell had happened?

After carrying out a lot of checks on our house, it was clear that we had not been burgled, nor had anyone even attempted to break into our house. Whatever crime had taken place was unrelated to our home, and we just assumed our garden was involved in some kind of a chase between the police and criminals. Despite this, we still went to bed a little nervous.

The next morning, a police officer called round to ask if we had seen anything the previous evening. We gave our account and I keenly asked what had happened. Without giving too much away, we were told that the incident was not a risk to homes on our street, the criminals were locked up and not even from this area. We can now rest at night. Just…

You know how I said the other day that moving house was hard? Well it just got one step harder…
Everything has been moved from the old house to the new one. The removal firm – AJ Removals – were incredible; packing and moving our possessions and furniture. Had we not had this help, it would have taken months to move ourselves. Now comes the tricky part. Unpacking!

There appears to be hundreds of boxes everywhere. We have started to unpack, but working out where to put everything is a nightmare. My clothes are all in boxes. Until I can buy and build a wardrobe, I can’t move the clothes; but until I clear the boxes, I can’t get a wardrobe! Aaarrrggghhh!

My coffee machine is lost, which is causing great distress. We don’t have Sky and while I found my old Freeview Box, the aerial is shit. I could hardly watch I’m A Celebrity, last night due to poor reception.

I did discover some useful finds on the Freeview box… recordings from 2013. Amongst some interesting documentaries I saved, over four years ago, are old episodes of The Football League Show and Match of the Day. Watching bits of them, I can see that Leeds were shit back then and shit now!

Right now, with the mountains of cardboard boxes, it looks like a task we will never complete. I am sure we will… in another four years time.

It is the draw for the World Cup this afternoon. Lots of people are already predicting England to fail to progress past the group stage. I don’t know – if we are drawn against these three teams, I think we’ll be OK…
