Earlier this week was the first morning of the year where I wore my Bath City scarf and Leeds United gloves for my walk to work. Yes, that makes me a ‘two club wanker’, but I was a ‘warm two club wanker’.

As the winter months get colder, I will have less concern about the walk to work, as my commute will be cut by around 10%. The IT building is moving around 100 meters closer to my house – therefore cutting my journey from 10 minutes to 8! That’s 2 minutes a day, 10 minutes a week, approximately 40 minutes a month and 480 minutes a year. 480 minutes translates to 8 hours, which is just over a working day. Effectively, I have gained an extra day’s annual leave. Woo-hoo!

The new building is nice and has some impressive views of Bath and the surrounding countryside. Unfortunately, one side is blocked by a taller building, which is obstructing the view of Weston. If that bigger building wasn’t there, I would probably be able to see my house. There would then be the temptation to build some kind of a walkway in the sky, so my journey to the office would be even easier and avoid cats, dogs and scooter-riding school children.

There is also that lovely new carpet smell, which is just amazing, and one of life’s small pleasures. Sadly, like with the scent emitted from a new car, it won’t last. My ‘Dragons Den’ idea, which will one day make me millions, is to package the smell from new carpets and cars into an aerosol can. Then, regardless of how old your house is and how much mud and dog mess have been tramped into your nice home, you can mask the stench with a new, pleasant smell. If you’re in on my business idea, have a lot of money to invest and are a little mad, then leave a comment in the box below.

  • 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.
