So, how's life then?

It's a glorious Autumn Sunday morning and I'm sat in my daughters kitchen contemplating life...and generally it's good.

Big blip yesterday when Watford were stuffed 3-0 (,,10400~37755,00.html ) but that was always going to happen after Aidy recieved Manager of the Month award (it's jinxed and ALL football fans know that!!). Hertford won again, moving back up the SSML ladder and a really great result for Great Britain v New Zealand in the second Rugby League test.... beat them 44-0!! Check out the Kiwi reaction !!

It was this young ladies birthday

late again...
