October began with a trip to The Oval, to see Linfield take on Glentoran, play awful but grind out a 2-1 win.
The following Saturday, I went to see Northern Ireland take on San Marino, the first game at a fully redeveloped Windsor Park.
I then went home, and got a bit of sleep, before an early morning boat to Dumfries to see Linfield take on Queen of the South in the Scottish Challenge Cup.
The following Saturday, it was back to Windsor Park to see Linfield take on Ballinamallard United.
Two days later, I was Limelight bound to see Feeder in concert.
There were then two frustrating weekends as I was then Coleraine bound the following Saturday to see Linfield held to a frustrating draw, just as they were at home to Crusaders the following Saturday.
The month ended by going to see KT Tunstall in concert at Mandela Hall.
