Away fans

Noisy lot! Poor old Andy Townsend.



Inside out

Lovely pitch it has to be said, flat as a billiard table. Outside behind the goal and it’s a very basic terrace, just a step!

No news on the teams yet. very tinny tannoy with an interesting selection of music.

3Blokes reckons the pitch will help us as it’s so good.

Wave if you see us on the TV!


We’re here

We’ve arrived and so have the team. Few Charlton here already, clubhouse packed so will try and get a beer.

Been made welcome already. Let’s hope we’re smiling at 3.30.


Watford Gap

130 miles to go, enjoying a coffee. Traffic is clear at the moment. No sign of the coaches.

Keep on passing a Result Scenic with a Charlton badge in the back, how does he keep getting in front of me. Johnny Mc (3Blokes to you Lifers) will try and take a picture of them.

Right back to the coffee!


It Works!

Just testing out the wonders of mobile blogging. This probably won’t work, but hey it’s worth a try.

For the record, this was taken the Legoland store at Bluewater. The boys refused to be photographed with them.


Evening All

Thought it was about time I updated my blog.

Gone for WordPress rather than Blogger and a subtle change of name.

Will be updating the site as soon as I work out how the bloody hell I add things, i.e. music, video’s etc.

So, a lot’s happened in the last year, since my last post on the old blog. We’ve had Zabeel, relegation, death of a radio station. I’ve discovered Twitter and tweet far too much for my own good (@bigdl if you’re interested). Given up on the old Cattlewagons and speed up to town on the Javelin. So here’s hoping that it’s not a year before I update again!

I’ve gone over to the dark side and discovered Apple. Swore that I would never buy an Ipod, but got hooked by the Touch. It is a thing of wonder and keeps my journeys pretty sane. Managed to get hold of an old Powermac G4 and have fun in trying to work out how to use OS X. It is better than Vista, but that’s not hard.

Musically I’ve fallen back in love with Marillion. For some reason I just couldn’t get into the last album of theirs that I bought way back in the 90’s. Don’t know why but I rippd it into the Ipod and have never looked back since.

My kids have got older and wiser, wiser in the fact that Dad has money, not a lot it must be said, and money buys things and they like that.

We’re (Mrs. Big Dave  and myself) having the fun of changing schools at the moment, making the choice for our son. One that will dictate his future. It has to be said that there isn’t much choice in this part of the world if you fail your 11+. So it was a good job that Big Dl Jnr passed with flying colours, well done Son We’re both very proud of you.

Pity the poor kids who have to go to the other schools. Nice new buildings maybe. But that doesn’t make up for decent education. Blimey I’m almost going political, that’ll never do.

So there you go, a brief summary of what I’ve been up to in the last year. Really really exciting, yes I know!

Who knows what the next 12 months will bring? One thing we all hope is that it brings Promotion in May (or Earlier, we’d like that!)
