Bloody weather. I got a real soaking this afternoon after work. It was dry all day until 3 minutes till 5pm. In the short 10 minute walk from work to my house I was drenched – and I was under an umbrella for a lot of that time. I will expect an improvement in the weather for next week, which I have off work. I’m not going away on holiday this summer, although I am going to Leeds for a few days and to watch Leeds United play Huddersfield in the Carling Cup on Tuesday. I’m looking forward to that!

I’m still getting paranoid about spiders at night. Last night I thought I saw a shadow of a massive spider on my wall while I was half asleep. I got up, turned the big light on and searched for it. Then, after not finding one and regaining my thoughts I realised “How could I of seen a shadow of a spider, there weren’t any lights on!” I must have dreamt the whole thing!

Ladbrokes paid up for me again yesterday. I placed £10 on England to beat Ukraine in a friendly match. The England football team haven’t done too well in friendlies, but I thought players like Beckham and Owen, along with Sven the manager would have points to prove. Ladbrokes paid out £15 for my correct bet!

Something about the game that annoyed me. Alan Smith in the starting line up. Why is it that through all his years at Leeds he was (nearly always) overlooked for England and as soon as he goes to Man Utd he is capped! He’s only played 1 league game FFS, hardly enough to warrant a sudden change of heart by Sven. That’s the way it goes though. It’s not right.

  • 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.
