Football-Free Weekend ...

... yep, didn't even watch the Cup Final - and our Sky subs mean I'm not watching the Oxford/York game either !!

Weekend away in Lancaster - and a major cock-up on my part - I turned down the option of a "freebie" to the Mossley 30th Anniversary Bash in exchange for being "official snapper". I thought it was on Saturday night - I was wrong (as in - I could have done the Friday night "do") - cue much gnashing of teeth by yours truly when I found out ... on Saturday morning - my fault of course !!!

So - a bit of digging in "le jardin" on Saturday morning - up to Lancaster after lunch (they appear to have removed the "black armbands" following the Colwyn Bay game - curtains were open as well). A wander round - and a quick drinkipoos in the "Merchants" ("Lancaster Blonde" and Mordue "Radgie Gadgie") - before off for a family meal at "Quite Simply Food" - damn fine nosh it was as well, and a first meet with our big lad's prospective "in-laws" - went well ...

Today - after a trip to the Lancaster tip at Salt Ayre (some "crap clearing" before lad and lady move into their "new abode" in the not too distant future) - a 6.5 mile wander around Littledale (just on the top edge of the Forest of Bowland - not far from Lancaster) before home ... and this ... some "weekend snaps" at

No Football Here !!

Mrs Smiffy now cooking a curry - which will be followed by a bath and some last minute revision for the job interview tomorrow morning (not just "an interview", but a "second interview" - so I must be very close !!). So - I'd be grateful if all you out there in "bloggerworld" can emit some "postive vibes" tomorrow between 1000 and 1100 - if successful, my manifesto promises to buy some nice new camera tackle to "upgrade" the 'Six Tame Sides' photographic output next season - and I can finally lose the "dolescum" moniker - the quicker the better as I feel that quite soon there'll be even more people chasing even fewer jobs - something to do with an election and a "coalition government" that look ready - and willing - to start screwing those peeps at the bottom of the pile in order to save money for our nuclear bomb ...

Wish me luck ... I'll need it !
