For the second Saturday in a row, Belper Town lost by the odd goal in nine yesterday when they visited Loughborough Dynamo. So - in the last three games 10 goals have been scored but 13 conceded and of course, no points collected. Didn't go yesterday - (it was blowing a gale with blustery showers and we just didn't fancy it) - but reports suggest another poor defensive display. One of the main problems for the Management team is the absence of key defender Matt Plant who we all hope will be fit again soon. Next game is against Premier League Buxton, away, on Wednesday night so that might be a bit tough! Anyway - Snapper Harrison was at the game yesterday. His excellent pictures are here:
Rest of the week? Not that much to report really......
Monday - work until mid-afternoon when the head cold got the better of me and so I went home.
Tuesday - Paracetomol and sleep mainly - to sort out the cold.
Wednesday - much better so back at work
Thursday - ditto but the Duchess met me at the office and we went to Meadowhall for something to eat and a wander around the shops. We ate at TGI Friday - they've opened a new place in the Oasis within Meadowhall. Good food but not cheap! Enjoyed it tho! Whilst there - the Duchess bought me an early birthday present (Friday 21st Jan if anyone wants to do similar!!) It's a "Move Controller" for my PS3. Still getting to grips with it but it's good fun!
Friday - work in the morning and supermarket in the afternoon.
Saturday - never strayed from the house - the wind was blowing an absolute gale and it wasn't at all pleasant outside so we stayed in and watched footy score updates on TV whilst listening to local radio commentary.
Sunday - listening to The Archers right now but fully intend to get out of the house one way or another after lunch - maybe a walk in the local park. We'll see.
