EXTREMELY Carefully Considered Thoughts from a Random Mind
Wednesday, 11 August 2010
Another busy week...
.. the main event of which was Belper Town 1-1 Matlock Town in a pre-season friendly last Saturday. A local derby with Matlock playing in a divison above Belper Town and so some serious bragging rights were at stake here!
Unfortunately, not the greatest game I've ever seen. it was a bit scrappy with only occasional glimpses of good football. The major plus for me was the excellent defensive display from the Belper side - the back four looked very good and coped well with pretty much everything. In the end, a draw was a fair result as they say.
The rest of the week has been pretty much taken up with organising (and then re-organising cos a customer changed his mind!) a short trip to Canada and the USA, scheduled now for week-commencing 30th August and including calls in Sudbury and Mississauga, Ontario, Canada; Grand Rapids Michigan; Belle Center Ohio and Monongahela, Pennsylvania before heading back home Friday evening 3rd September. Hectic but typical of the type of trip I make these days!
Oh Yeah! And once again, my Sunday was spent cutting privet hedges (6 hours in total - it's a jungle out there!) and trying to get my garden into some sort of respectable shape. Trouble is - it's a bloody big garden and stuff will insist on growing dammit! (That's' the only redeeming feature of winter as far as I am concerned - stuff doesn't grow and the grass doesn't need cutting!)
Right - gonna watch the 2nd half of the England v Hungary game - or maybe Yorkshire cricket on Sky Sports 3. Hmmmm! Decisions, decisions! (How can you tell the Duchess is out and so I have the remote.... Mwahahahah!!!)
