Loads of people are going on about this being the first week of the season – it does not look like it to me to be honest – I mean it is bloody freezing out there, well not freezing like -15 however a pretty chilly 8-10 degrees – and it has only been like that […]
This is a three part post – today the setup and later all going well will be the reveal – I will then give you a bit of time to think before I act. This will be a hard task my friends – I do not want to say at this stage what it is […]
