I have a leisurely bet every saturday putting on an accumulator with a few quid if I have such funds free (Getting to the time of year when there are NO funds free) I managed to put together a win on the first weekend of the season, but have been let down by 1 or 2 sides recently. Has my luck changed after last night? Hmmm I was sat as Claire went out to training thinking that alot of the teams playing tonight were pretty much bankers so I went ahead and put a sneaky little bet on. At one point all signs pointed to the bet coming in, but City then went to 2-2 and my heart sank a little. That and Benfica were 2-2. Thank goodness for late goals tho as they ended up all romping home
That will do nicely thanks. Goes into Claire’s Birthday/Xmas fund
Well last night seems to have killed me off. Did the usual Monday night 5-a-side up at Manor, and this was only the 2nd week in which Claire couldn’t make it, so I managed to blag a lift off someone else. Not sure if it was due to the cold and not warming up properly, but jesus my whole body is aching like hell. I’m currently awaiting Physio on my knee, and I sprained my wrist last week trying to be like Tim Krul Anyway was a good run around, but this morning I’m totally feeling it. Ice bath may be needed tonight to help recover hmmm. Aside from that I just feel generally run down in general. Not sure if I’ve suddenly become a light sleeper since we’ve had Oscar, half expecting him to come lick my face in the night and whine that he needs the toilet, but the slightest noise and it seems to take me an age to fall back to sleep, which then just leads me to feeling lethagic all day. The icy cold winds this morning helped wake me up a little tho. I got a WhatsApp message earlier alerting me that it’s 24 days till our 4 days in the cottage so lets see if the country air helps sort me out.
Last night we were scanning the TV looking for something to watch, and we stumbled upon a film, which I hate to admit, gets me feeling Christmassy. The film in question….. ELF.
For some reason we both love this film, and having watched it last night for about the 20th time I’m beginning to get that feeling again. I can’t wait to go to the Lincoln Christmas Market with Claire again this year and cast our eye over the hundreds of stalls selling almost anything you could imagine. Might have to sample some of the German Stollen again from one of the stalls we found in the Castle Grounds last year.
There is also the fact that Claire’s revised rota has come in and there are atleast 10 or so days that we have off together so we’ll be able to sort a few things out ready for some festive fun
Is it really the middle of November already. It dosen’t seem all that long ago that me and Claire had a week in Spain, and one day in Puerto Banús where the temperature reached a holiday high 35°C. There is a picture below of me enjoying the heat! This blog post has been posted due to me being told the region we’re going to stay in Derbyshire recorded -2°C last night which sounds a little cold to me. Best wrap up warm
Excuse the pose, but it was red hot and I was a little uncomfortable We did have a great week over near Calahonda, and the apartment was a decent size. We’d used a points scheme my mum and dad have, and they ust so happened to spend the week before further down the coast towards Marbella, and then the same week as us on the same complex. That was fine, as we only really saw them when we went to the bar in the evening or I was topping up my milk white tan to something a with a little more colour (I REALLY don’t tan well )
One thing I do love about the Winter months is sitting in a nice toasty house and watching some quality Telly. One 3 part drama we’ve just finished watching, and became hooked on was “The Escape Artist“. David Tennant was brilliant in it, and if you can access BBC Iplayer then it’s highly reccommended.
Another series we’re in the middle of watching is “Ripper Street” Which again is on the BBC normally we only reserve that channel for Match of the Day and Eastenders
I can’t wait till Sat 23rd Nov because it’s the special episode of Dr Who. “The Day of the Doctor” I was never really one for Dr Who, but since me and claire got together she got me watching the back end of the David Tennant
The Doctors embark on their greatest adventure in this 50th Anniversary Special.
In 2013, something terrible is awakening in London’s National Gallery, in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England, and somewhere in space an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion.
All of reality is at stake as the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him
I really really can’t wait to watch this. One lad from work is gonna be lucky enough to be in Orlando at the time of the showing, so has told me he will be in a Cinema over there watching it in 3D! What a tosser.
We’re also sat waiting for the next season of NCIS to come onto FOX here in the UK
