I wonder if that "Leeds, Leeds are falling apart again" song
at 09:41 16 May 2019

starts to get in the players' heads and becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. It must be hard, when things are going wrong, to lift yourself as thousands are singing that. It's impossible to close your ears, even if players generally block out the crowd.

I've always thought opposition fans should chant "MISS, MISS, MISS" when a player takes a penalty. Just to be different and get the word in the player's head. Arms waving behind the goal doesn't do anything (as we've seen) as your focus is on the goal itself.

Have there been any psychological studies on these sorts of things?

First beer for a year, done.
at 16:13 10 Apr 2019

Mallaig, Skye and Knoydart (where the most remote pub on the British mainland is) were stunning, as was the journey from Glasgow to Mallaig (5 and a half hour train heading north into the Scottish highlands). Breathtaking scenery, smooth waters, and the day we caught a ferry over to the pub was bathed in glorious sunshine. We actually sat outside and drank our first pints in deckchairs overlooking a glass-still loch.

Didn't think much of Glasgow (sorry Glassers), although we didn't see much of it.

My first drink was a local ale called Remoteness (appropriately) which was fairly weak (3.62% to ease myself in) followed by a Stella, then red wine with dinner and an expensive whisky after dinner. I could definitely feel it but wasn't hammered or anything like some suggested.

The pub was lovely, set in some incredibly scenery with a mountain behind it and as I said a loch out front. And the landlord was brilliant, interested in the story and happy to pose for photos.

An amazing trip and gutted it wasn't longer. I've literally never seen such stunning scenery. Many thanks to Stokers for the recommendation.

Interesting that after the aforementioned alcohol I wasn't fussed about having more but preferred to go for another walk. The old me would've been happier to sit there drinking. Guess I've got to a point where I can take it or leave it.

Birdwatchers, a couple of questions
at 16:42 1 Apr 2019

1. On the waterways and muddly planes as you near Ipswich on the train (the Suffolk broads I presume) - what are the little birds that walk along the mud and probe it with their long beaks?

2. What's that bird noise I always hear in the mornings this time of year that goes sort of "ooh ooooh uh, ooh ooooh uh"? I always thought it was cuckoos but they have two notes (hence the name) rather than 3.

Any ideas?

So what you all got for Mother's Day then?
at 10:02 28 Mar 2019

I've got a Tranquility Garden winging its way to my mum - various herbs and flowers to grow in the garden that promote relaxation. Got it at notonthehighstreet.com which is great if you're stuck for ideas. I got her a Ladybird Hotel from there last year - a thing for ladybirds to live in!

One year on, no ladybirds have taken up residence. Maybe the rates are too high.

Anymore for anymore? (This post is also a gentle reminder...)

Sunday roast?
at 13:08 11 Mar 2019

Talking of meat, as a few of you are down the board, Lady Dollers and I went to the Fentiman Arms near Oval for Sunday lunch yesterday.

Beef striploin, lemon and thyme roasted chicken, slow cooked pork lion, a pig in blanket & crackling were the ridiculous varieties of meats on my plate... plus a massive Yorkshire, pots roasted in goose fat, cabbage, celeriac, carrots done in a funny way I cant remember the name of, swede and gravy. All for £20.

Awesome, delicious, could've done with more than one pig in blanket but that's being moon-on-a-stick. I was stuffed. But just had room for a whiskey and treacle tart with clotted cream for dessert.

Nice and cosy pub with a real fire and friendly locals playing board games. A lovely and relaxed way to spend your Sunday afternoon. Highly recommended.

It's for my mum.

She only really wants a step counter but anything more would be good... as long as it works by itself and doesn't need connecting to a smart device.

Cheers in advance!
