Our reaction to week 1 of The Great British Bake Off – Cake Week


Decent night at the football (Chelsea vs Bristol Rovers)

So I was originally going to write this last night but by the time I got home I was just so tired and my feet hurt that I had something to eat and went to bed.

We won the match 3-2 (we’ve uploaded our match review here if you want to watch) so its not all bad. You can’t be too upset when your team win and progress to the next round, but the team of the performance wasn’t great.

I forgot how much I hate the travel to the ground and back. Packed buses, packed tubes and then with the current heat its just horrible. It’s so hot and sweaty and sticky and smelly and yuck. You get to the ground and you are covered in sweat and then you have to sit surrounded by people for two hours before going back underground again to get on a tube. It’s just horrible. By the time you get home you just want to collapse.

If only I could live five minutes from the ground I would be so happy. Well no not really the traffic on matchdays would be a complete nightmare but close enough to be able to walk there and back would be nice.

Change of blog name

Just a quick note to say that we have changed our blog name (again) because we weren’t happy with the last one and didn’t feel it represented properly what we wanted our blog to be about so we have changed the name from Vexing Point to Our Random View.

As part of this name change we are going to write more on current events, the news, things going on in the world (which admittedly one could call current events), little diary pieces, movie/TV shows reviews, and just random thoughts and opinions we have while also still doing the daily prompt and writing prompts etc. Don’t worry we will continue to do so in a lighthearted way while actually trying to be interesting and informative.

Getting just the right blog name is really really difficult but we our happy with this one because it does what it says on the tin, it allows us to give our view on whatever comes to mind at that moment.
