Busy Sundays

As its getting close to Christmas, the wife made me crawl about the dusty cold loft to find the Christmas decorations, drag them all down and move furniture around out living room to so we could put our tree up. I also had to help clean the house as my wife had so much on, so I couldn’t play on my Xbox. After spending most of the day doing things I didn’t like I was glad to get some rest bite last night.

As you know we are planning a big holiday next year. We are looking at getting it booked either just after Christmas or in the New Year when there are some offers on. I think we are decided on the US, just not sure where about (not an easy decision as it’s a huge country). I had a look last night at possible destinations. We will be doing a fly drive holiday as we want to see as much as possible and the best way to do that is with a car. We narrowed it down to The Atlantic Coast, The Pacific Coast and Route 66 last time, so we just have to decide when we are going to work out which area is best to visit.

Both my wife and I want to go different places (typical) she wants the Atlantic Coast and I want to do the Pacific Coast which leaves Route 66 as the compromise, that or we play rock, paper scissors or my wife bribes me with sex or lack of! On the plus side, it’s not looking overly expensive, because we are taking the fly drive option as hiring a car is fairly economical. I reckon over the next few years we could do all three routes and would make for a brilliant adventure. I’ve already been to the US once to Vegas with the boys and my wife and I had a stopover in Miami after the cruise.

We’ve both really enjoyed our tasters of the US and we are excited to go next year. I did have a cheeky look at seeing what it entails to live there. My preconceptions are that it’s pretty hard to get residency. In our favour we have some money to back us up, but really we would also have to be earning money out there as well to have the best chance at residency. I had a little look at the visa services offered by these guys to see how they can help you get residency in the US. They had some positive reviews but not sure if they could help, without filling out an assessment and as of yet it is all pie in the sky.

Brilliant game and fantastic result which now sees us in the playoff zone in 6th only a point behind Reading and nine behind leaders QPR. And finally our GD in up to 9 which is a pretty fantastic achievement for us. It’s filling me with confidence for the New Year, something many Leeds fans haven’t had for a long time.

We shinned throughout the whole game getting a goal in early thanks to Smith, and in the first half we had a number of good goes at the goal. The second half was slower, with Doncaster counter attacking, however that was for nothing, especially as one of their goals was decided to be rather dubiously off side. But never mind happens all the time even to us a good number! McCormack scored in the 76 minute to take his tally so far this season to 17. And then in the last few minutes Austin sealed the deal.

Our next game is on Saturday against Barnsley, they are bottom of the league however they have proved troublesome in the past. However they do seem to be struggling but then again that doesn’t mean they can’t get a win or draw past us. We are at home so that should help us a bit (crosses fingers).
