In just over 6 hours time, I will getting up very early to make the long trip to York to watch Bath City.

I was in fact born in York and moved south when I was a baby. I say I moved down, I didn’t have much of a choice in the matter. I was taken to Bristol in a cot and being an infant, didn’t complain. Actually, I probably did complain. All babies do. I probably screamed and cried about the fact I was hungry, had soiled myself and the fact I hadn’t had my daily dose of Cow & Gate (remember, mums – healthy babies are happy babies). I don’t however think I was crying because of the fact I was moving from the town of flat caps and whippets to the land of farmers and cider.

I haven’t been back to York since and do not remember anything about the city of my birth. For all I know, I could have been born in Outer Mongolia and everything I have previously been told by my parents has been a lie.

On most away trips, we arrive a couple of hours before kick off. Normally I would go and find something to eat or drink, buy a match day programme and explore the football stadium. Tomorrow may be different. York is famous for many reasons – not only was I born there, but the city is known for having a chocolate factory – something I must visit!

After I have met Willy Wonka and kidnapped one of his Umpa Lumpas, I will try and find the place of my birth. It should be easy to locate. I would expect nothing less than a shrine, complete with a thousand candles, photos and worshippers visiting on a daily basis.

Hopefully Saturday will be a day of lots of chocolate, a visit to my own personal shrine and, of course, 3 points for Bath City… and a pet Umpa Lumpa.

  • 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.
