Let’s face it, I am not a man’s man. I will freely admit it. I would consider 3 pints of beer a major drinks binge, I have never stepped foot in a dogs track and I you won’t catch me playing a game of rugby on the XBox, let alone in a muddy field.

I prefer cushions over cigars and Haribo to horses (is that a good analogy?). I do like football and I’m getting married in a few months, so I suppose that qualifies me for Man Points.

I used up the majority of my small collection of Man Points on Friday evening. While most male residents of the country were sat at home, in pubs and clubs watching the England National Football Team take on the immovable force of Lithuania, I was in the theatre watching a musical.

The musical I was enjoying (yes, ENJOYING), was Joseph. When I was invited to watch it some months ago, I was always expecting good things, but I never expected it to be as entertaining as it was. It was such a well done production and the songs were superb – so much so, that after the production, while walking back to the car, we turned around, returned to the theatre and bought the CD. I’m still yet to play it, but when I do, my neighbours will no doubt have to endure the likes of “Joseph and his Multi-coloured Dreamcoat” on repeat throughout the day and night.

Saturday, I restored some masculine pride by visiting Twerton Park to watch Bath City. The referee was atrocious (for a change), so I shouted at him. Lots. It made me feel big and like a man.

On Sunday, any Man Points I racked up by verbally abusing a football official the day before, were soon diminished, when I spent far too long trying to fix the vacuum cleaner and clean the entire house.

I’m back off to football tonight. I’m going to eat a blue rare steak before I leave and also punch a kitten. I’ll feel as butch as Hulk Hogan.

  • 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.
