All Set for the New Season. Bring it on!!

Saturday - Me and the Duchess drove down to Belper to buy a season ticket. I already have one (the result of a successful bid by the Duchess in the auction at the Supporters Evening) so I decided to return the compliment and get one for her as a birthday present! We went to the Meadows and found the chairman cutting the grass. He suggested we meet him at the Grapes about an hour later and he'd have a ticket for us. The pitch looked absolutely beautiful and it really whet the appetite! Can't wait for the pre-season games now!

On the way home we stopped at Bakewell, walked by the river and then watched a bit of cricket before heading off home via Calver bridge. Took lots of photos - here's just a few of them.

The Bridge at Bakewell
Idyllic Isn't it!Well Bowled Sir!One of my favourite houses in Derbyshire - at Calver Bridge (I think it sold for near on a million last time it was on the market.)
Sunday - Since it was a fine day, I attacked the garden again - cutting and pruning and generally tidying up. After about 4.1/2 hours I called it quits, enjoyed a lovely "salad tea" and relaxed for a while before calling our son in Rotterdam for a bit of a natter. He's fine and I'm glad to say the company he founded about 15 months ago with two colleagues seems to be doing OK. Long may it continue!
