He still had yet to learn from his mistake, as he asked for the date again when filling out the health and safety form on arrival.

"We're now at a spa for the day so hopefully all is okay. However guess what this idiot asked his wife when filling the health and safety form in on arrival! I need to tattoo the date on my forehead."

As mentioned in The Coaches Voice, Parkinson likes to walk his dog in his free time. He also loves to drive with his wife for a pub lunch. The football coach says doing this has helped him fight against anxiety and pressure.
