I don’t do many manly things. I don’t really like steak, I don’t watch rugby and I don’t own a shed. The reason I don’t own a shed is because our garden isn’t big enough and because I am afraid of spiders. Spiders live in sheds, so if I were to own I shed, not only would I have no remaining garden space, but it is likely I would encounter some eight-legged creatures. My spider phobia is also earning me nil points in the manly department.

Today though, I did something which did make me feel like a man. No, not stand next to a group of burley men in a urinal. I did something far more macho. I unblocked the bathroom sink. Our sink has been blocked for weeks. It takes ages to drain. I don’t know what could be stuck in the U-bend. The only stuff to down the plug hole has been water, soap, tooth paste, mouth wash and contact lens solution – hardly cement.

Whatever had managed to block our sink, it was doing a very good job. Not good enough for a bottle of Mr. Muscle sink unblocker though! After pouring the entire contents down the sink and returning 15 minutes later, I am pleased to announce that the water flows away beautifully. It may seem an easy task to get onto Tesco Online, order the bottle of cleaning fluid, before using it upon delivery; but it is a job only a man can do.

  • 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.
