I have become quite a difficult person to buy presents for - I don't need very much, my life is fairly busy and, if I really want something, I'm lucky enough to have sufficient funds to go out and buy it (within reason of course, I'm not rich). And so, when my parents asked me what I would like for Christmas, I did have to think for a bit.
And then it came to me, having been to the Needham Market vs Cambridge United match a few weeks earlier, that I could sponsor one of my local Ryman League Division 1 North team's home games - think Division Eight (Home Counties North and East Anglia) and you'll have an idea of where they fit in the English soccer pyramid. So, I did a little research, discovered that it was within their price range and agreed that this would be their gift.
It then fell to me to do something about it and, I must admit, I've been a bit rubbish at sorting the matter out, until this week, when Ros asked what was happening about it. So, I thought that I'd better try to contact the club and see what could be arranged. And, this afternoon, it has all been agreed, a cheque is in the post, and my day out is arranged.
