Back - after a LONG weekend ...

...which actually started on Thursday night with a drive down to Belper after workies. Friday saw our Michelle's "Graduation Ceremony" at Derby University - our house now contains a BSc to add to the two BAs and a MA - and yes she was on the same stage as Roy Wood !! Friday evening saw me and Mrs Smiffy in the newly (ish) refurbished Ritz Cinema in Belper watching the low-budget Irish film "Once" - I would thoroughly recommend it - the film and the "ickle cinema".

Saturday - bought a suit for a wedding in March - ouch . The weather had made me cagey - I had the contact numbers for Belper, Ilkeson, Matlock, Eastwood and Gresley but I didn't have to go too far as the Belper Town v Kidsgrove Athletic game was called "on" quite early on. It should have been a win for the home team, but there was much spurning of many many boy Gavin Allott looked useful (interesting to know how Richard Tracey feels though ...). Pre-match saw me watching the Sheffield derby - thank you to the George and Dragon - and Rupert ! - Sunday saw a bit of this and a bit of that - some "taxi-driving" - got back to Mossley about 1700 - looking forward to getting back to work for a rest !

I'll rustle up some more words and pictures as soon as .....

2045 - some footy pix now at..
