I have absolutely no plans for what I'll be doing. But, seeing as the weather looks mighty fine for most of the country, what are we all up to? I might mosey on down to St Pancras and walk the canal to Regent's Park, which I haven't done in a while. Quite a nice stroll unless the cyclists are out in force.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Bulls-Leeds tonight, collapse in a heap in bed through misery and tiredness. Saturday; up, quick errand to run, Cleckheaton farmer's market, Iron Man 3, smash a feed at Nando's (boom), then mull about for Wakefield-Catalan. Lazy Sunday, possibly go to Giants-Wire. Monday, rest up and watch films, catch up on sleeps from what feels like a month even though I was off last Monday.

I have nothing planned.  Absolutely nothing.  I may be dragged shopping on one of the three days but I fully intend to do as little as humanly possible on the other two, recharging batteries and catching up with my reading.  I may sit in the garden while reading but that's the limit of my adventurism for this weekend.

Probably spend much of the time watching MotoGP and IPL, if I'm honest. But at least the weather's nice enough to get out and it looks like the train and tube services aren't being shut down quite as much as on most BH weekends.

Drinking in the pub is a sport? You must have some 'interesting' pubs down your way. :O  ;)
