Chopped Liver – Here Comes The Weekend

May 19, 2011

My wife does competitions. Always has. Obsessive you might say. She wins on the odd occasion which helps to rationalise the activity. The more common prize she wins is a short holiday break somewhere in England – hey not to be sniffed at – especially if she decides to take her husband with.

And so it was, some months ago that she won a Champagne Dinner for 2 and overnight stay at a Posh hotel in Stratford. (Avon, darling…not the one overlooking an Olympic building site).

However B contacted the hotel and said she’d love to come but unfortunately can’t as she (we) did not want to be so far from the hospital in case I get the call to show up for the liver transplant. So she asked if it could be deferred until after I have had my operation and am sufficiently recovered that we could make it our first little outing together with our new liver.

The were accommodating. Some months later I duly had my transplant, and started on my road to recovery.

We figured that I would/should be ready by the end of May – which, conveniently coincided with our anniversary. So B contacted the hotel a few weeks ago and booked us in for next weekend. Not this weekend. The following weekend.

That’s great. Don’t you just love it when a plan works out so neatly? A lovely romantic weekend away with my lovely wife as we celebrate the beginning of a new era.

Sat 28th May. Wembley. Man Utd v Barcelona. European Champions League Final.

Pate de foie gras, sir?

Chopped Liver – Roobey Tuesday

October 19, 2010

Let’s get this straight.

It is Tuesday.

And it is the day that supposedly shocked the football world when Rooney was reported to want away from Man U – for financial reasons.

I don’t really care. With wages and image rights he is reported to be already earning £300k a week. Ladies of the night don’t come cheap these days.

So he is going down to the City for even more money – maybe he anticipates needing it for a possible future divorce.

But, as Morrissey once said, “it says nothing to me about my life” – I am just busting a gut just trying to make a deal here or a deal there – just to pay the bills.

So, Goodbye Roo-bey Tuesday, tomorrow is just another day – doo doo doo doo.

Now there… are 3…. steps to… carry a donor card – ooh, wap wap!
Just follow steps 1, 2 and 3.
