The grass on the lawn in our front garden is becoming overgrown again. You’ll remember a while ago I compared it to a jungle and thought I saw a sleeping lion in the outback. A gardener came and cut all the grass. Within a couple of weeks, the grass grew back! My Dad came round with a lawnmower and cut it again. A month on from this, the grass has grown longer than it ever has been!

Never mind a jungle, our front garden is starting to make our once respectable neighbourhood look like a council estate. Everyone on our street, well “Close”, has neatly kept gardens – then there is ours. My friends, John and Simon, have compared where I live to the location where The Inbetweeners is set. Basically, it’s a nice, clean, middleclass, suburbanville. Then I moved in…

Any Batholian will know that there are two post codes in the city. BA1 and BA2. I’m going to get a lot of hate (leave your comments below, as opposed to posting dog poo through my letterbox), but BA1 is where the posh, well-groomed and intelligent people live. BA2 is where the less-civilised lot exist. I only venture to BA2 to watch Bath City and visit McDonalds.

The state of our front garden is slowly turning our picturesque BA1 garden into a BA2 hellhole. While slightly embarrassed, I kind of like the idea of annoying the neighbours with this. So much so, I am thinking of dumping an old sofa on the lawn and hanging a St. George flag from the window. Maybe even borrow a mad pitbull terrier, named Tyson, to prowl around outside. If someone can leave a burnt out car outside our house, all the better. Proper classy stuff and all that.

  • 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.
