Its been a while since my last entry, and i thought it was about time i did another one to update everything!
I am back at work this week after having 7 days off, and as always it was tough getting up for the early shift after a week of sleeping in! I needed the week off, didn't do a huge amount of stuff, but was able to chill out, think about everything that's gone on recently and prioritise a few things. It was almost like a detox for my head, certainly not for my liver though! Went to see West Ham on Wednesday, the less said about that experience the better, and went to 2 Concord Rangers home games, which also didn't end too well! Friday was the interesting one though, as me and Ben played in a charity darts night in Farringdon. It was a great laugh, and got more out of the night than expected. Great bunch of lads, a top laugh was had, and we won 3 of our 5 matches, one of which being a sort of West Ham - Orient grudge match! Ok so we didn't make it past the first round, but it was a great event and extremely well put together.
So i guess i should mention West Ham, and we've had contrasting fortunes in games this season so far. Away from home the team are undefeated, playing 3, winning 3 and scoring 9 goals. At home though we've been shaky, a loss and a draw so far, and a loss in the league cup. Big Sam reckons the players may be feeling intimidated playing at Upton Park, well hopefully that feeling don't last too long as it'll be our home form that gets us back in the premiership! Players have been coming and going as well, and today the transfer window will slam shut and we'll see the final squad to take us through to at least Xmas. Its inevitable really that Parker is off, did blinding for us over the past couple of years, but he needs to play top flight football. Best of luck to him in all honesty. I'll have a detailed look at all the players we brought in next time round.
I tend to fill these blogs up with sport, sport and more sport, so I'll leave that topic for now! Work is going well, progress is being made and certain aspects are changing, but all in all i am still happy where i am, and i am enjoying it, which is always a bonus!
Oh and i heard the news yesterday of a huge rock tour happening at the end of the year. Def Leppard are touring, and will be supported by Motley Crue and Steel Panther, and tickets go on sale at the end of this week, which just happens to be when i get paid! So I'll check the dates and more than likely get myself a couple of tickets! There's been a lot of great bands touring over the past few years, and I've been lucky enough to see some of them, and this set of shows will be worthy additions to my list!
The last thing before i finish, i was caught by surprise by my dad during my week off, as me and Ben got a text asking if we wanted to go to the crematorium. This was completely out of the blue, but we went, and it was only then that we realised it would have been the birthday of an aunt who passed away when i was very young. My nan, aunt and cousin were also there, and it was good to see them, but i am not great at handling that sort of thing to be honest. Still worth doing though that's for sure.
And on that note, thank you for reading!
