While everyone was celebrating Valentine’s Day, being wined and dined in romantic restaurants with their husband/wife/boyfriend/girlfriend/escort, I took my fiancée on a coach trip to a football ground, somewhere in Hampshire to watch Bath City. It rained and we lost. The culinary highlight of my afternoon was a toasted cheese and onion sandwich.

We did visit a restaurant on the way home from football. Although instead of having a candle-lit banquet cooked by a Michelin Star chef, our meal was prepared by Ronald McDonald.

It was always the plan to watch football on Valentine’s Day. As a couple, Claire and I are still romantic and had decided to buy one of those fancy meals for two from Marks and Spencer, which we would enjoy on Sunday evening. The starter consisted of a meat selection for me and a tart with some funny cheese in it – I think it was called Camembert. My cheese pallet ranges from mild cheddar to Dairylea, and I didn’t feel adventurous enough to dive in and try the tart.

The main was pasta bake, which was very nice. Unfortunately, Claire had a virus, so was unable to enjoy the full delights of M&S cuisine. Sod Valentine’s Day, anyway. It was made up by Clinton Cards to make money (legal notice: this is not true, although they do make money from it.). Every day is Love Day in our house and we don’t need any cards, flowers or cheap tack to be romantic.

  • 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.
