new update for 2011
Recently I have been remiss in updating my blog. This is because I was ill over the Christmas period and to be honest I couldn't be bothered. But I am encouraged to get on with it by a number of naggers. So here goes. I have been to football, to Chelsea that is. Normally my son, Ben, takes me but he was away in Poland skiing. So my wife, Julie, stepped up even though she doesn't like football. she was not impressed when it poured with rain at evening match against Bolton. I have to admit this was beyond the call of duty. As I sit in front of the front row I don't get the benefit of the stand roof overhang and so we got soaked, or rather Julie did as I was well wrapped up. Chelsea won 1-0 which was a relief as the team that started the season with such promise, going seven points clear at the top of the premiership, suddenly imploded and lost or drew with teams the like of which they were previously beating by three or more to nil. This was possibly a contributory factor in my lethargy as in my reduced mnd world football plays a more significant part. As if going to the Thursday evening match wasn't enough Julie took me again on the following Sunday to a match which Chelsea drew 3-3 with Aston Villa. Julie asked if she could bring a book to read and she says I said no but I don't recall that and I wouldn't mind really, I am just happy to see the games and Chelsea need me there. yesterday, Saturday 15th January, my son resumed accompanying me to football having returned from Poland and we had a good day watching Chelsea win 2-0 against Blackburn. Last Saturday Julie and I went out with Ben and Amy to the Star in Cheam for a curry. I enjoyed hearing about their skiing holiday exploits but not being able to eat anything with the delicious curry aroma was tortuous.
