WOW. I have been super duper lazy with my away travels – I say lazy I mean work has been super duper busy and I had a trip to New York.
So much has changed since my last blog about Leyton Orient. They sacked Andy Hessenthaler, brought in Alberto Cavasin and have now gone seven games without a win.
But I feel their fortunes will turn around – but back to Carlisle.
And there I was in Carlisle on September 10 but this time it was not a jaunt to the local fish and chip shop – which I did miss.
My brother had traveled down from Aberdeen and came along to the 2-2 draw with me and afterwards we had dinner at Hipping Hall.
Hipping Hall was one of the restaurants Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon visited in the first series of the trip.
It was a lovely dinner but not something I would do every week after a football match mostly because I cannot afford it.
We had a six course tasting menu consisting of Trout, beef , cookies and cream and tomato curd.
What is a curd do you ask? Beats me! But I would recommend it for a once in a lifetime sort of meal as the grounds are quite pretty.
This weekend it is on to Hartlepool so no more beef and Trout, it is back to some fish and chips or maybe some northern delicacy!
