So - updates and footy first -
Saturday 23rd Oct - Belper beat Shepshed Dynamo 2-1, coming back from 1-0 down. We missed it because we were collecting our son from Doncaster airport. He wanted to be in Sheffield when his ma had her operation so he's around until Thursday.
Tonight - Belper beat Quorn 2-1 in the Presidents Cup - we missed it because the Duchess had her new hip fitted on Monday (yesterday) and so she's in hospital and I've been visiting!
Maybe a pattern emerging here...... we don't go - Belper win 2-1 - hope not!
Tim Harrisons pictures from the Shepshed win are here
and a damn fine set they are too. (Careful Tim - you're getting a bit to good at this photography lark.... wouldn't want it to go to your head!) I'll add a link to tonights cup win when he gets his finger out and posts the album on the Belper Forum. Assuming he was there of course! ;-)
Last Sunday (way back after I did my last blog entry) we had a drive out into Derbyshire. The colours weren't quite there but we got some nice shots on a very bright day. Here's one...
and an album of the better shots from the day is here:
Didn't do much else this last week or so - mainly spent time getting the Duchess organised for her operation - which went well by the way - trouble is - she is not allowed to sleep on her side for the next 6 weeks. She must sleep on her back - and that will be a challenge let me tell you! She'll hopefully be out on Friday morning. Fingers crossed!
Sunday just gone, we went for a drive out to Carburton Lakes again - but there was simply nowhere to park so we ended up heading back home after a loop around Ollerton and Sherwood Forest. Car was cleaned when I got home - and it has, as ever, piddled it down today so it needs doing again! Ho hum - my own fault - I chose black!
Any road up.... it's now 10:30 pm - I am knackered and about ready for bed. Work in the morning then hospital visiting in the afternoon....
