I have been off work all week on annual leave, I haven’t even been in my new job two weeks – how unprofessional (it’s OK, the holiday was booked long before my appointment).

It has been nice just to have a break after stressful two months, what with moving into the flat and starting a brand new job. I haven’t been up to anything major. I went to town the other day to do some shopping and also bought a few goodies from Ebay…

The walls of my room contain posters, framed pictures and even flags for some of my favourite things – Leeds United, Bond movies and X-Files. I have felt the walls have been lacking something for the hilarious television show Family Guy. This massive poster looks great above my bed.

I’m a big gadget fan, I used to have a cool little thermometer which measured the indoor and outdoor temperature. This broke recently, I don’t think the wire which connected the sensor to the main unit liked being trapped in the window! I got this new, far better weather station from Ebay. It’s wireless, the sensor sits in the garden, it also predicts the weather as well as temperature so is better than what I had before.

My PlayStation 2 died recently. I wasn’t too bothered as I now have a Xbox 360. There were three games I was missing though, Grand Theft Auto 3, Vice City & San Andreas. I managed to get these for a very reasonable price on the Xbox from a well known video games shop in Bath. Luckily these games are three of a short list of titles backwards compatible on the 360 HOWEVER the re-release of San Andreas (in the “Classics” range) is NOT compatible! I had to take it back to exchange it for a pre-owned original version.

I was given some HMV vouchers when I left my old job. I bought Goal! on DVD, very good film which I watched yesterday afternoon. I also bought Guy Ritchie’s latest movie Revolver on DVD. I know it’s not meant to be as good as Lock, Stock & Snatch but I am a fan of his work so thought I would try it out. Will let you know what I think when I get round to watching it.

  • 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.
