One wet Sunday in July ....

...the great British summer continues apace - ha !!

A late start today - checked out the Ashton United pictures this morning - Jez has a new DSLR and is using the pre-season games to check out the machine, and the software as well - not a Canon - but JAlbum is the display method of choice - reminded me that I MUST get the update sometime soon - it'll go onto the laptop as the main pc is being "retired" up to small boys room - we'll see even less of him then !!! Here's a link to Jez's pix - certainly a good start (and he got something on the Ashton goal - unlike me !!)

"Robin's Robin-Eye View"

Sunday walk ? No chance ... so it was a ton of ironing and tidying before heading off to "Cineworld" on the Ashton Moss this afternoon to watch "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" - two and a half hours, and for the first time during the films, I'd have to use the phrase "loosely based on the book by JK Rowling", unlike the previous four films that were more faithful to the books. Still worth waiting for (and worth waiting the extra week before going - not too busy and the "popcorn crackling decibels" were quite low !!).

Hopefully the weather will improve this week - Tuesday sees Hyde United up at Seel Park - probably my lot for this midweek before attempting an "orgy of friendlies" the following week (yep - Mrs Smiffy away again !!)
