Football has provided me with some of the highest points of my life (not to mention some real downers to).
But this weekend has been out of this World, almost surreal.
We spent the weekend in Brighton and were lucky enough to get tickets for me and my son, Jason, to go to watch my adopted team of Watford FC play the Seagulls.
As most of you who follow this blog are Watford fans I won’t go into great details as no doubt you’re already deliriously aware. Watford won, other results went their way and the Hornets are PROMOTED to the big boys’ playground – The English Premier League.
The atmosphere at the AMEX Stadium before, during and after the game was incredible. Without exaggeration I must have chatted or saw at least fifty people I know. The whole town seemed to be at the game.
Then during the afternoon watching the results come in while sat in a Brighton pub what seemed an impossible dream at the start of the season became reality and the rest as they say is history.
That wasn’t the only highlight. My first love Everton hammered Manchester United on Sunday.
This was preceded by a 50 kilometre bicycle ride in preparation for my charity bike ride from London to Amsterdam in June.
To really round off what’s been a great weekend. I dragged myself out of bed at 5am this morning to go to Man Alive which is a fitness programme I’ve been doing for the past month.
I really could’ve done without it but they’ve instilled a great phrase which keeps swirling around my head. “Where the mind leads, the body follows.”
So this morning my mind led, my body followed, the workout was really tough but I now feel bloody great!!
