The Royal Wedding – Prince William & Catherine Middleton

So it’s the morning after the Royal Wedding and I’ve been up a couple of hours almost now, as rested as I could hope to be after a massive 14 hour ‘nap’. The truth is that Friday & Saturday physically were demanding, so when I decided to head for a 90 minute nap yesterday at … Continue reading

London Marathon 2011

Quick, someone tell Prince William!!

This morning, reading the Daily Telegraph on-line I decided to read the headline “Royal Wedding: Prince William and Kate Middleton’s daughter could become Queen”.

A good & frugal week

So it’s gotten to Friday & the working week is done, a pleasant weekend in London awaits. The truth is that this has perhaps been one of the quietest weeks I’ve had in months & months. I have managed to spend the princely sum of 60p this week… that that was on a packet of … Continue reading

CIS Insurance Irish League Cup Final – Lisburn Distillery FC v Portadown FC

Yesterday (Saturday) was the Irish League Cup Final at Mourneview Park in Lurgan between Distillery & Portadown FC. The two teams met last week in the Carling Irish Premier League – a game which Distillery won 2-1 at home. This week, it would be different, right?? Wrong. It finished 2-1 to Distillery. And yet it … Continue reading

A Week In Belfast

I’ve had all week off… my first vacation time since returning to the UK in January when I arrived back home from my four week excursion to Australia. I actually also had Friday off last week, which was originally intended for a trip to Belgrade for football, so it’s been a good break all told. … Continue reading
