Another Sunday afternoon...

....and I've been a busy little bee! Mowed the back lawn (Ha!! - Lawn!! - 'Ark at me!! Hahaha!) and conducted various other "tidying the jungle" tasks!

Anyway - it's been a good week and weekend on the whole although it was a bit of a downer when my son and his wife set off back home to Holland on Saturday morning - doesn't seem like they've been here a whole week but they're planning to come over again during the Christmas holiday so there's that to look forward to.

They spent Sunday to Wednesday in the Lake District and Scarborough and we went out to dinner at the Bowshaw Inn Carvery on Wednesday evening. Then had a great time watching the 2nd half of England 5 - 1 Croatia!

On Friday evening we went to Bakewell for fish & chips. It's such a lovely place to sit and relax and enjoy the River Wye although I have to say the goose and duck cr*p all over the path by the river is NOT attractive! On the way home we stopped at a point overlooking Fox House and watched the sun go down:
A beautiful sight!

Yesterday, the Duchess and I went to Goole to watch Belper Town in League action against a team who've just had their manager/centre half resign. You wouldn't have thought it to see them play, especially 1st half when they probably just shaded the game, even though the score was 0 - 0 at half time.

In the end, Belper won 2 - 1 with a tremendous 35-yard strike by full back Adam Burley. It could have been more but for a missed penalty and two excellent saves by the Goole keeper late on. You can read a complete report by clicking the "Belper Town" link on the right.

A "random" picture from the game:.......and the rest of my photo album from the game is here:

So - back to work tomorrow morning (that thought is the part of Sunday I really don't like!) Things might be a bit hectic because the plant has been on a planned maintenance shutdown for a week so there'll be some paperwork "catching up" to do. I've been into the office for 4 mornings so it won't be as much of a shock to my system as it will to that of some of my colleagues!
