I went out for a walk on New Year’s Day and found a tenner. That was as good as it got in 2020.
If a see a £50 note lying on the ground on the first day of 2021, i’m just walking on and leaving it.
2020 began with a trip to the Football on the first day of the month. Not too far thankfully, just a short trip to Windsor Park to see Linfield beat Institute.
My second football match of the year, Linfield’s trip to Queen’s University, was not as enjoyable. The less said about, the better, even though it was my first visit to The Dub for a match.
I had to wait nine days for my next football match, as Linfield won at Cliftonville, before a disappointing 0-0 draw at home to Dungannon Swifts.
It wasn’t all football, as the middle of the month saw my first concert of the year – Badly Drawn Boy at Black Box.
The first of many concerts in 2020, with Paul Weller and Lightning Seeds already booked for late March. Um ….
That was then followed by a trip to Manchester, primarily to see United take on Burnley. While I was there, I managed to sneak in a trip to Salford City v Accrington Stanley (a first visit to Moor Lane), as well as Street Art in Manchester and Salford Quays.
The month ended with two more football matches, Linfield’s 8-1 win over Glenavon, which was followed by a 3-1 defeat at Larne, my first visit to Inver Park since 2005.
