>I Don’t Like Mondays

>Well certainly not true about Monday 29th March 2010. It was a great day for me- not cycling related. Indeed, I’ve not been near my bike. I was on a course instead of work today. I was doing the first day of a two day MS Access course – learning me how to use the database software. Monday evening I went to the Royal Albert Hall to see The Specials in concert in aid of the TEENAGE CANCER TRUST. They were absolutely fabulous.

For 90 minutes or so, it was 1981 again, the beer belly was smaller, there was a message to Rudy. It was all too much too young. It was a master class from a great band. Even Terry Hall managed to make light of his miserable nature. Could the night get better? It certainly could…..

The Play List

One of the group I was with happened to be a Nottingham Forest fan. He seemed to stop smiling when I showed him the text that said Shola Ameobi had scored for the Toon in the big game tonight. The lack of smiles on his face was only matched by the smile on my face when I got texts from Tom, John and Peter telling me Jose Enrique had made it two nil to the Toon.

The result means that if Newcastle win on Saturday and Nottingham Forest lose at Bristol City, we will be promoted back to the Premiership. Get that champagne on ice – if not Saturday, then surely at home to Sheffield United on Monday.

What a fantastic day

Oh and just to make it an even better day, my boss gave me $100 towards the sponsorship target and others at work contributed another $50 this weekend. Thanks to you all – I’m getting nearer that target.

About spen666

I'm a 50 something football fan and occasional cyclist. I've been a football fanatic most of my life and have completed the 92 football league & premier league grounds previously. I have 1 left to rejoin the 92 club. Added to this numerous non league grounds, a number abroad and you start to get the picture. I took up cycling in around 2000. Although my father was a former World Vets Champion, I got into cycling accompanying my son to ride in London. This was followed by my commuting to work each day into Central London. Then doing some Sunday rides, then some audax events (www.audax.uk.net) and then a week's cycling holiday in France with a friend. From there, I got more and more into cycling and in 2009 completed LEJoG and in 2010 rode in the USA with the Police Unity Tour. I completed blogs for those events at www.aminearlythere.blogspot.com and www.bothesidesofthepond.blogspot.com Feel free to read them and learn more about me. I now am one of the organising committee for the UK Police Unity Tour (www.ukpoliceunitytour.org ) I live alone which suits me as it gives me time at weekends to pursue my interests of cycling and football. (Well what did you expect me to say? That I'm sad at being single?) I'm currently looking for my next challenge. Any suggestions gratefully received.
