Merry Christmas and Happy New Year for 2011 to you all.
It's been a mixture of ups and downs this Christmas.
On Christmas Eve my mum took ill with a virus and I thought we had to cancel Christmas all together.
By Christmas Day she recovered enough to cook dinner for the relatives, with my help and she put a smile on her face.
Well done mum, who knew?
Monkeys son arrived and apparently is staying with us now, he didn't even know he had a son? A DNA test will reveal his true paternity. He does look like him!
On Boxing Day, I needed some fresh air and me time so I headed off to Barnsley to watch Burnley play. They hadn't won at Oakwell for 79 years!
I met up with a celebrity Barnsley fan
Steve. We had a few pints before the game.
Steve writes his own column in the Barnsley match day programme, so he featured me! Thanks, cheque is in the post.
Full Time Score
Barnsley 1 - Burnley 2
Maybe I am the new lucky mascot.
After beating them and winning on a Boxing Day we finally have that monkey off our back, pardon the pun!
My luck however ran out when Scunthorpe came to The Turf on Tuesday 28th December.
I wore my new BFC shirt, it's a bit tight! I must have put on weight over Christmas!
Scunthorpe looked a better side and scored in the 15th minute of the first half.
Second half we looked beaten and lacked imagination. Eagles coming on created 4 corners but we just couldn't score.
Full Time Score Burnley 0 Scunthorpe 2
The Burnley fans shouted 'Laws Out. Laws Out", as Brain Laws walked across the pitch to the tunnel.
Lets hope Burnley start winning more games next year!
Maybe I can be the new manager? Just Saying...
Happy New Year and all the best for 2011.
Thanks for reading my blog.
N.B. will post result of paternity test soon.
