For the first time in what seems like months, Bath had a Sunday afternoon free of torrential downpours, and was actually gifted with the appearance of the sun.

To make full use of the unusual weather, Simon and I decided to have a game of football at a local park. Unfortunately, our plans were scuppered by a church fete taking place on our playing surface. We did consider demanding that the congregation move on, thus allowing us to play, but there were some scary looking members of The Women’s Institute selling cakes who we didn’t want to mess with.

Instead of football, we walked along the riverside to the marina, before returning to The Dolphin pub to enjoy a couple of drinks in the sunshine. Like a normal, well behaved chap I ordered a bottle of Magners. Simon however was not so straightforward, and confused the poor barmaid by asking for some obscure drink – Lemon & Lime Bitters. I hadn’t heard of it either, although looking at this website, I don’t know why every public house doesn’t sell the drink :o) So perplexed was the barmaid, that Simon nearly ended up with a revolting cocktail of lemon juice and Wadworth 6X Bitter. In the end he had to settle for a J20. Next time we go drinking, we’ll visit a upper class country club – maybe then will he be able to enjoy his strange, exotic and unknown beverage.

  • 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.
