Since Last Time

Huddersfield Town beat Bradford City 2-1 in the big derby game at Valley Parade on Monday. Boothy scored the winner. What a legend!

England beat Poland on Wednesday after putting in their first convincing performance of the season and qualified top of their group for the world cup and will now be seeded.

I went bowling with HCASS (Huddersfield Chartered Accountants Student Society) on Thursday evening and while improving on my last performance in Huddersfield, I still didn't beat any males and didn't beat that many females either with 81 and 77. I think I'm on the Huddersfield committee now which may cast further doubt over my future in Bradford. After the meeting last month where two meetings happened in the same pub (as me and someone else faled to meet with the others even though they were in the same pub) I've not heard anything since. Not long 'til the dinner!

On Saturday night I went into Huddersfield with Rob celebrating Huddersfield Town topping League 1 again. Things went a bit wrong for Rob towards the end of the evening an he decided to walk 4 miles home from my house at half two in the morning. He then decided he wanted a chat so we stood on my road for about 40 minutes then I went to bed at 3:30. I got up at 6:00 to watch the Chinese Grand Prix and the kitchen fitter was back so no more sleep was had. I was to learn why sleep is important later in the day...

Old Contacts, Japanese Grand Prix

It's just after 8:10 on a Sunday morning. An odd time to be posting, especially only after about 3 hours sleep as I've been watching the Japanese Grand Prix. It was a great race with lots of amazing overtaking and a couple of crashes too! Fisichella lost the lead to Raikkonen on the final lap which in my mind shows who is the best driver of the season even though he is not world champion. "So why not go back to bed?" I hear you cry. The kitchen fitter arrives in 15 minutes to do a couple of hours work on our new kitchen. I'll have a power nap or two this afternoon before my big free poker tournament tonight.

I've not posted much recently as I've been studying hard and while 57% in my 1st progress test is a pass, I look to improve on this so posts may be few and far between for a couple of months. Whilst at college we have a number of breaks in the day (and also a bomb scare in Halifax delaying my train) giving me lots of texting time. I thought I'd text some old friends who I hadn't contacted for between 6 and 24 months. All of them replied which was really nice as I don't like losing touch with people. Sadly though last week I heard that someone in my year at school committed suicide. This gave me a reality check and onc again set me thinking about how lucky I am in life even when things are oing badly.

Bradford Bulls, Pulsation

I went to see my first live Rugby League match at Odsal Stadium a couple of weeks ago with David and his new wife. Sitting in corporate hospitality was good as was the rugby, especially the second half when it come more exciting due to tiredness. The big screen helped as it can be difficult to see the ball at the other end when sitting so far away. Bulls beat the London Broncos (in probably their last ever match) 44-22 in the Super League Eliminator Play-Off match. They went on to beat Hull FC 71-0 last weekend and face St Helens this weekend for a place in the final. Good luck to them. A special mention must go to the cheerleaders (Pulsation) as they must have been very cold but had impressive routines and every single one of them looks fine!

Finally can you spot the glaring error on the front cover of the programme? It's quite amusing!
