Today, my lovely fiancee, Claire, celebrated her final birthday as an unmarried woman. She reached the ripe old young age of 26, although to keep her happy, we’ll just call her 21 again. 26 or 21, she’s still a few years younger than me!

If you don’t want to go into the city centre of Bath to see the Christmas lights, you could always come to my street, where our neighbours have decorated their houses with more illuminations than the Blackpool Tower. I don’t know how the National Grid will cope.  Feeling we should make an effort ourselves, we put up our Christmas tree in the front room. Yes, I know it’s still November, but the shops have been playing music since what seems like May, so I think I am justified in getting things looking festive a couple of days before opening the advent calendar.

Finally, I am a happy chappy this evening as Leeds beat Derby. It seems like 1,000 years since their last victory over ‘The Rams’, but in reality, I think it’s 9. Many people say that as a football club, Leeds United are cursed, blaming all the bad luck on a gypsy who urinated in the corners of Elland Road in the 1970s. I wonder if Leeds’ new, slightly eccentric Italian owner, Massimo Cellino, has gatecrashed one of the Big Fat Gypsy Weddings and carried out some brutal massacre, like Al Pacino in the movie Scarface. If this has lifted the curse, and Leeds go on to win The Champions League, I’ll certainly have to question if the murder of an entire family was worth it.

  • 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.
