Previously I joked about 'fortress Christchurch' well the home trouble goes on. Yesterday saw us host Carlton Town who have been having a good season so far (4th before kick off). An entertaining first half despite the 0-0 scoreline turned into a 0-2 defeat thanks to former Belper player Ruben Wiggins-Thomas scoring both goals in the last 12 minutes.

This morning we started decorating the bedroom. Three walls in Laura Ashley Soft Truffle paint. Tomorrow we'll do the other wall with wallpaper and then hopefully I can get out on my bike for a quick ride round as the forecast for the two days after that are not looking 'bike friendly' - guess I'll have to put the turbo trainer together and try that.
Sad to hear the news today that the Wales manager Gary Speed was found dead at the age of 42. The radio were reporting that he had apparently taken his own life, which if it is true is a tragic ending to a man who was still playing professional football up to a couple of seasons ago.
