B..cus..I’m Happppi

There was a customer in the coffee Bar the other day and amongst other parts of putting the world to rights they also  suggested I was negative about things.

Well how little do they know me. How can they suggest that of someone whose favoutitest EVER book is “Eeyores little book of Gloom”, the same person who has spent over 35 glorious years supporting the awesome Bradford City as a footballing penance and had the pleasure, nay privilege of working for a Local Authority dealing with the adoring public and self-important  senior officers and politicians, on and off for nearly 20 years…

What’s not to be happy about??

…and as I have now paid me subs to some holding company so I can carry on using my domain name you can once again read about my sublime happiness on this ‘ere blog
