We decided to go all posh last week, and buy our online shop from Ocado. Tesco had really annoyed me, by not only delivering me mouldy oranges one week, but by sending me further putrid fruit the following order!
Ocado source a lot of their food from Waitrose, which is very expensive. I needed to buy a couple of ready meals, which were of good quality, but not stupidly priced. I found some, which were 2 for £6. Not cheap, but considering some of the other ‘deals’ were priced at over £10, I had little choice.
While unpacking the shopping, Claire asked why I had bought gluten and dairy free food. I have no allergies and will generally eat anything, besides fish. It turns out the nice looking ready meals I had bought were for people with special dietary requirements.
Last night, I ate a Thai Green Curry. The last time I had one of these, it was nice and creamy. How could they make a cream curry with no milk? The curry was horrible, and the vast majority of it went in the bin. I’ve got a chicken tikka masala tonight – again, dairy free. I don’t have high hopes.

Two Reasons To Celebrate
I support two football teams. Yes, I am committing the cardinal football sin. My crime is just one step away from changing sides, because your team is doing crap; or worse, becoming a Manchester United fan, when you live in Middlesex.
I have reason to support two clubs. I was born in York. I am t...

Don’t F**k It Up
Leeds United have picked the worst possible time to start playing crap. After a season of success and competing in the play off positions, they've started losing games. Yesterday afternoon, Leeds lost at home to Wolves. They are now outside the play offs, for the first time in months. There's only t...

- Nine Years Ago
Nine years ago today, I asked my now wife, Claire, to be my girlfriend. I must have made a good impression in taking her to The Boathouse pub for a meal, because she said yes. Just over four years later, we became engaged, and in 2015, got married.
Nine years on, we are both very happy...
- Let there Be Light
The other morning, I awoke to a disturbed wife. The house was in darkness. Apparently, when turning on the bathroom light, there was a big flash, followed by all of the remaining lights in the house going out. I had expereinced this problem in my old flat, so knew how to fix it. The light...
- The Most Exciting New Years Eve Ever
Happy New Year to all my readers. How did you spend your evening last night? Unless you are Dot Cotton, I can guarantee that it was more rock and roll than mine. We went to bed at our usual time of around half ten. Thinking about it, Dot’s evening was probably more exciting than ours...
- A Rubbish Start To The Day
I had a terrible start to my day. I woke up to find some animal had totally destroyed our rubbish bags, which had been left out for the bin men. This wasn't just a small tear in the bag, they had been ripped to shreds spilling literally all our rubbish from the last week onto...
- Russian Ultras
England play Russia in their opening game of Euro 2016 tonight. Considering we have an impressive collection of Russian meerkats in our front room, I think it might be a good idea that we segregate them from Claire and myself.
- Superhuman Killing Machine
I went on a killing spree yesterday. I felt just like Arnold Schwarzenegger. There was death and much bloodshed.
I started my murderous rampage when I discovered an ants nest in the porch of our house. Ants living inside our house! This was totally unacceptable. I can tolerate ants in the garden, but when they cross...
- Losing Contact
Yesterday morning came the time of the month where my contact lenses needed to be changed. I have performed this ritual every four weeks, or so, for the last 15 years. This time, however, I did something differently. I threw away the old lenses, as normal, but instead of opening a new packet of fresh...
- An Epic Fail
Ten days ago, I set three New Year’s Resolutions. I have since broken two of them.
The resolutions were
#1 Get up earlier in the morning
#2 Ride the exercise bike in the bedroom more often
#3 Blog every day of the year
Today was my first day back at work, after a week off on leave. I am pleased...
- Tumble Dryer
Our tumble dryer was delivered this morning. Without intending to sound at all sexist, my lovely wife was very pleased with its arrival.
The tumble dryer is in the utility room - sitting in the same place as the freezer was. In the near future, I therefore fully expect to end up putting frozen chips...
- New Years Resolutions
#1 Get up earlier in the morning - so I'm not in a rush for work every day.
#2 Ride the exercise bike in the bedroom more often - currently being used to hang my shirts on.
#3 Blog every day of the year... yes, this does count as today's entry....
