Posted by sean on November 14, 2006 at 7:20 pm in Coffee, Shopping with No Comments


Yesterday was the first official day of my week off work, and for the morning, I didn’t do anything of a constructive nature. I got up at 9ish, watched a little bit of television, played some music, surfed the internet for a while and had a late breakfast consisting of coffee, fruit and cheese & onion flavored Hula Hoops.

I met Simon in town in the afternoon. We went to the Subway sandwich shop for a bit of lunch. I had never been to a Subway until yesterday, although I understand from all the hype that they are rather tasty.

I was greeted by a member of staff who was very polite and even called me “Sir”. The last time somebody called me that was when they added “you’re making a scene”. They then offered me a wide range of fillings which could be used to construct the ultimate sandwich. Meats, cheeses, vegetables and sauces were all thrown in. I got a little carried away and when I was asked to pay almost £5 for my “light lunch”, I realised why they were so keen to add all those fillings.

After eating our sandwiches and a visit to a coffee house, we looked around various clothes shops, looking for warmer, winter garments. I had the idea that a hoodie would keep me warm, although to avoid being labeled “chav”, was keen to get a hoodie without a hood.

I looked in a variety of different shops, including Route One and Just Add Water. They all reminded me of skater dude, biker and pisshead clothing. I did have a laugh at the T-Shirts displaying messages of “I’ve Got Fucking Torrets” and “I Love Your Mum”. All very good, but I wouldn’t be seen dead wearing such items.

In the end, I found a “hooded” fleece in Gap which looked good. I haven’t purchased it yet, but on my return visit to town on Thursday, I will probably buy it.
On the way home I stopped at Argos. I originally intended to buy an electric fire and coffee machine. The electrical fire was out of stock, but will be available on Thursday (hopefully there won’t be an ice age before then). I bought the coffee machine and an electric water cooler/dispenser.

After making my purchases, Simon came back to my flat to watch the latest episode of Family Guy. He was also a help in carrying home the rather large cardboard box which housed the coffee machine.

Today was spent playing with my two new toys. The water cooler is, well… very cool. The coffee machine is excellent. It makes a fabulous cappuccino and although it takes a while to setup and clean, it tastes so good that you wouldn’t question the quality, had you been served it up in Starbucks. When Dan comes to Bath later in the week, I am sure he will be making much use of that particular gadget.

I’m off out shortly to watch a fabulous game of football between Bath City and Cirencester – the Chelsea of The Southern Premier Division.

  • 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.
