It was a Saturday of what weathermen describe as ‘longer spells of rain.’ I had spent the afternoon trying to ‘bulk up’ and knock off a few calories on the bikes in the local gym. I have been on a ‘fitness’ journey since my birthday in early February, when Britain was covered with snow.

It is a misty morning, and it is difficult to tell whether the neighbourhood are suffering an Easter chocolate hangover, or still in denial following the Doncaster game. I have just made an Easter Monday visit to the paper shop. Amongst the mournfully reduced Easter eggs, expensive birthday cards, and earnestly scribbled classified ads, I work my way through the front pages of the papers, which are carefully displayed on the news stands.
It is a bit of an unwritten rule in my family that I pick up the newspapers when I am at home in Ipswich. I love flicking through the pages to digest the gossip, scandal and rumour in all of the papers that my parents would never allow to set foot in our house. I revel in the transfer scandal, and the managerial rants, but sense that the shop assistant wants the money.
