So it’s finally over. As the special day draws to a close, billions of people worldwide, myself included, are drawing a sigh of relief that we don’t have to be reminded about Christmas for another 11 months, well 6 if the retailers get their way. Bah humbug and such.

Here’s a review of my Christmas Day.

These were good, very good in fact. Gifts I received which particularly pleased me included – Gears of War (video game for the Xbox 360), Bath City football shirt, a beautiful canvas print of some woodland (which is now hanging on my wall) and Chris Moyles’s new autobiography.

Adequate at best. I volunteered to help cook and somehow ended up preparing the whole turkey. This will no doubt come as a shock to some of you, particularly those who have seen me cremate a pizza and douse barbecue sausages in ash. This turkey did not set on fire, nor did it give anybody who consumed it salmonella – so there. It was rather dry, although turkey is always dry at the best of times, especially if they’re boneless like the one I had to cook.. c’mon, I’m not Gordon ‘fucking’ Ramsey! Next year I’m going to the pub for dinner.

The little TV I did watch was shit. As predicted, Vicar of Dibley was diabolical. Little Britain, disappointing. I no longer watch EastEnders, although did catch the tail end of it before Dibley. I saw Pauline Fowler’s much publicised death. What a disappointment. The old bag just lay down in the snow. Such a long serving servant of the soap deserves to go out in style, maybe in a big ball of flames, or to be cut into tiny pieces by a machete waving maniac.

Of course, Christmas isn’t just about presents, food and television. I had an enjoyable time with family and a welcome break from the other stresses of life. These will return tomorrow when I travel to watch Bath City play Team Bath, while closely following the Leeds score via my mobile phone. Then on Wednesday, more stress will be bestowed upon me, when I return to work. It makes you happy to be alive.

  • 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.
