  4. Getting a new bathroom

    Hi all, We're thinking it's time to upgrade our bathroom. It's old and worn and although a reasonable size it doesn't have a separate standalone shower (which we'd love).

    5 Minutes of Crap

    Has anyone ever told you to type for 5 minutes and just write anything that comes into your head. I have done this a few times and it is almost like writing tourettes. Some crazy stuff seems to pops into your brain and everyone that has ever done it just cracks up at what they write. 5 Minutes...

For all the magnificence that he has shown on the pitch over the years, he has been like this for a few years...
