Another Saturday, another afternoon running like a banshee after a ball of animal hide inflated with air. I must admit, it’s doing wonders for my fitness as I’m now able to run around a lot more than I used to. Of course, this isn’t going to make me a great footballer – just someone who can run around a lot!

The evening was spent in Nandos in Slough to celebrate the birthdays of Funmi and William. Whilst there are no surprises with Nandos, the food was good and the birthday boy and girl seemed to enjoy themselves.

A good, if slightly exhausting day!
