Good day yesterday, firstly the weather was excellent. It’s been a good few weeks since Bath has seen a hot weekend. This alongside going out to town for a couple of drinks and something to eat before heading off to the cinema made it all the more better.

At the cinema I saw Madagascar. This isn’t officially out in The UK until next week but they had advance screenings this weekend.

The film is the latest release from Dreamworks and is about a group of animals who escape from a zoo and end up in Madagascar and that really is the jest of it. The storyline is poor but that isn’t what the film is about.

Madagascar is effectively a kids movie, but like Shrek, Shark Tale and The Incredibles gives more than enough to keep adults amused. The script is full of gags, jokes and film references for the adults while the cute furry animals and slapstick comedy will keep the children and simpleton adults amused.

It is very well cast and boasts big names like Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer and Sacha Baron Cohen…. yes, that is the bloke who played Ali G! These actors seem to fit their character and animals they portray brilliantly, so top marks to the casting director there.

After the cinema I went out to a riverside pub and sat out with a pint as the evening drew to a close. It was a great end to a great day and was a taster of what I cane expect when I go on holiday on the canal boat next month which I am very much looking forward to.

    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.
