Last Sunday I nipped out for a very quick two hour session on a river local to me.Leaving the house at 0800,I was fishing within fifteen minutes.Trying for a Chub or two fishing bread crust as bait.Only the one bite in the second swim,resulting in this small Chub.Back home to cook the girls breakfast by 10.00,then onto yet more DIY.How boring was that?Ok it was cold and lot's of leaf litter were abound,I'm sure you get the idea.
1.The boiled sweet was invented there!That may be why the locals wear an expression of sucking on a Sherbet Bon Bon.
2.Sinnita is Hull City's most famous fan.That speaks volumes eh.
3.Ninety five percent of houses were hit in the blitz.And it certainly shows.
4.More than a quarter of the population are under the age of 20.Does this make you think the city is a hot bed of go getting,like a latter day silicon valley.Or as I thought a haven for single mothers on "Bens" and lay abouts.
I could go on but I am sure you get the general idea.If you were relaxing with your beloved over a glass of plonk and suggested a weekend away in the UK.You may suggest Bath a nice place,maybe Ludlow for some nice "Foodie" places.But Hull,well I'm not sure.
Imagine....."Darling how about a weekend away in Hull?",you may be be hit with a repost like this."Why would I want to go to the arsehole of the world,near the freezing cold Humber Estuary",a fair point.Perhaps I am being unkind.
Here is a resident of Hull,Mike "Biggun" Berridge and a man I'm glad to call,well an acquaintance.Does this man look like he could adapt well to a cultural environment.Enjoy the Arts,discuss architects of merit.Or is he more of a candy floss and ale,at the world renowned Hull Winter fair kind of man.Looking very much like Onslow in his wife beater vest in the photo below,he looks like he would struggle to find culture in a ten year old yogurt pot,languishing at the back of his fridge.I rest my case,though Robert Crampton writing in today's Times newspaper,mounted a stiff defense of his home city,but of course he now lives in London.Top columnist though is Robert!
Upton Park for me this Saturday and another silly kick of time of 17.30 for our game against Chelsea.A royal pain in the arse are these late games.I end up watching them with one hand over my left eye just to focus.But next time I update I will try and keep it strictly fishing,as Gruff and I are off to the Royalty and the Parlor Pool,for a days Pike fishing next week.
A premature enjoy your weekend from me.
