"I treated myself and I had Monday off,” he said.
“I tried to work in the house. The weather was all right so I thought I’d get the lawnmower out and give the grass its first cut of the year – only for the lawnmower to break down! I spent an hour trying to sort it out!
“Tuesday morning it was a 5.30am start, I was in the van on the motorway down to Newark.”
