Dream Team 2021-22

Hi guys Here’s my The Sun Dream Team for the 2021-22 season. Matches from the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Champions League and Europa League all count. I’m not sure about the new Europa Conference. Obviously it makes sense to select players from team that will be competing in European competition because they’ll playContinue reading “Dream Team 2021-22”

Camping Pillows

It’s all well and good having a comfortable sleeping mat… https://planetpaul.blog/2021/07/23/the-camping-mat-maze/ But you’re not going to get a good night’s sleep without a comfortable headrest! At the top of the above photo is the Trekology pillow (About £15/£16) that I recently bought. It’s such an easy self-inflate product and packs down to little more thanContinue reading “Camping Pillows”

Flextailgear Tiny Pump

Yesterday, I posted about camping mats… https://planetpaul.blog/2021/07/23/the-camping-mat-maze/ Forget endless hand pumping or lung damaging, this little beauty does the work for me! In fact, I did already mention this product when I actually went camping recently… https://planetpaul.blog/2021/07/07/camping-not-in-my-garden/ I’ve also used it to inflate a new larger kids pool that I bought this week. It makesContinue reading “Flextailgear Tiny Pump”

The Camping Mat Maze!

Do you remember that trip to Ireland that I told you about… https://planetpaul.blog/2021/04/18/dingle-and-great-blasket-island/ I’d bought a Thermarest sleeping mat but then couldn’t repack it! So I bought something similar to the roll mat that you see in the top left of the photo above. In fact, it was probably that I bought… duh! Anyway, whenContinue reading “The Camping Mat Maze!”

2nd T20I: England vs. Pakistan at Headingley

Firstly, as the photos indicate, this was real life… not a computer game! Rather than taking the train, which is what I’ve always done when attending the cricket at Headingley, I drove. I got there early and parked a ten-minute walk away. Even if it was possible to park closer, there’s little value in doingContinue reading “2nd T20I: England vs. Pakistan at Headingley”

Cricket 19: 2nd Test – England vs. Zimbabwe at Headingley

Following a 32-run defeat at Lords in the first Test, we headed north to Leeds in search of redemption. On a much more batting friendly track, we lost the toss and to the surprise of nobody… were invited to field first! Opening batsmen Huxley Modiba, dismissed in the forties in both innings at Lords, passedContinue reading “Cricket 19: 2nd Test – England vs. Zimbabwe at Headingley”
