1. My Bath
Every Sunday night without fail. I put 606 on and relax and read. If I have a free half hour any other time its bath time! Its one place you can completely switch off without anyone disturbing you. Has to be roasting hot!
2. Stand By Me (movie)
The greatest film ever made! I have no idea how many times I have watched this film but every time it reminds me of being a kid with my mates. The final line by Richard Dreyfuss gets me every time and id say most men can relate to it “I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?”
3. My Mum
The one person I can tell absolutely anything to and get straight and honest advice with no bullshit. She has been an inspiration to me in so many ways its not possible to list. Anything I’ve ever decided to do she has supported me and given guidance. Also makes a great bacon sarnie.
4. Bruce Springsteen – Born in the USA album
This reminds me of travelling home from the beach on summer evenings in my auntie Maura’s VW Golf with seven of us crammed in, my cousin Ryan and me in the boot with no cover and us all singing along. Also the perfect record – every song is great which is hard to get in an album.
From the moment I wake up to the moment I fall asleep on the sofa. Its what I look forward to all week – breakfast, taking Ryan to his minisoccer football match and seeing his excitement, my ritual of getting ready for my own match, doing my losing accumulator bet with my dad, coming home for beer and crisps on the sofa with my partner Caroline, watching the latest box set, then MOTD on sky plus then falling asleep on the sofa. Perfect.
