Souvenir of Ireland - Another Bloody Bus Ticket !

Well why not ? we've had Hyde - we've had Ilkeston - why not Dublin ?

And just for the hell of it - one from the top bar in the Guinness brewery (with some interesting camera settings !!)

We've been to Ireland !!

..and got back tonight. Here's one for starters...

"Master's" food for the week ! Will check out the rest of the pix when we have more time...

Mossley v Lincoln

We got a small souvenir after yesterday's football match......

A suitably annotated fixture poster !

Tomorrow morning - a change from the norm - we're off to Ireland to do some walking in Wicklow - and some Guinness no doubt. "Master's" quest for real ale might be tricky (does the Dwan Brewery still exist over there ??)

A "Tale of Two Tickets" - AFI vs Ashton United

Whoo-hoo - we're going to a gig !!

No we're not young wristy - that AFI ticket belongs to small boy - we're going to the football - again !! Not to worry -we'll buy some tickets when we get to Ashton United - for the half-time draw.

And the winner is "ticket numbers 101 to 105" - whoo-hoo we've won a prize.

A litre bottle of whisky no less - something for the festive season I feel. Now the football has finshed we have to drive to Manchester to pick up the kiddies from the gig.

Boo-hoo !

This Weekend's Wild Event - Shopping !

By God - it gets worse ......

Wristy as "Trolley Dolly"

Followed by Football of course - and then home for a "quiet night in"..

The "Rock'n'Roll" life of August Bank Holiday seems so far far way ....might have to start making escape plans soon.

A Quiet Week - so far

Wristy has absolutely "nothing to report" this week - OK football on Tuesday (another Mossley defeat - see t'other blog) - but there's nothing really exciting/unusual/different from the norm that makes it worthy of a piccy or anything like that.

Sad really - but life's like that I guess at times ...let's see what the weekend brings...maybe we'll go shopping on Saturday morning - or something "wacky" like that ........roll on Dublin on 23rd October.

Crisis for Wristy ....

Life is just work work work - and when it's not work work work work it's bloody football look at this weekend just gone - more of the same ....

Another bus ticket -shades of the September 10th posting !

And following that game - another Mossley defeat - we had this .....no we haven't - the usb connection on the new camera is f*cked already

EEEEEEK !!!!!!!!

Football - but Recycling First !

Yes, tonight was football - but like "Master" always does before a Mossley home game - we walked past the ground for about 500 metres to the Mossley Market Place to do a bit of recycling - tonight it was just a bag of empty cans (beer and food mind !).

Emptying the cans in the bin - they're not only beer cans - some are chopped tomatoes and sweetcorn !

It's amazing - since we went "big" for the recycling, our Wheelie Bin tends to be only half full on collection days. We're lucky in Mossley because we also have a plastic bottle bin up on the Market Place - and when you've kids in the house supping for fun from 2 litre PET bottles, it's good to be able to recycle them as well as the usual cans/bottles/newspapers.

And when we got back for the football Mossley won 2-0 !!

Alternative Forms of Energy - The Only Way ....

We went for a walk on Sunday up between Bacup and Burnley (Cliviger Gorge).

Here we go here we go here we go...the trusty GPS !

Up on side - along the tops - down into a place called Portsmouth (no Harbour - no railway station - they're building "executive houses" on the site of the old station - probably Beeching's fault - and no real ale in the "Roebuck" pub). Hey ho.

Up the other side - along the top to see these...

We like windmills (we like Holland as well so ...). They're not the complete answer - but they're a step in the right direction. They want to build some on Saddleworth Moor near where "Master" lives - but the posh people (you know - the "4x4orons" as we call them) don't like them - and they're getting help from none other than David Bellamy !!. Here's a funny one - there's a farm in the area with a "No Wind Farm Here" poster on the gate - and they've got a mobile phone mast just behind their buildings....count the faces !!

We need a trip to the seaside to find out more about offshore wind farms, tidal power and wave power. What with this and the "Time to Go" demo last week, I think I'm starting to catch something political off my owner - and it's good !.

The walk was nice as well - the windmills were not noisy - and we saw lots of animals happily grazing beneath them - so that's some of the arguments out of the window.

We need to think of our children -and the "wristies" to come ...

A Day out in Liverpool, Stalybridge, Manchester ...

Today we went to Liverpool - well Fazakerley to be exact - as "Master's" youngest had a ju-jitsu grading.

Outside the dojo.

He passed of course and then we all rushed back home. We snatched 30 minutes of football, watching Stalybridge draw against Frickley Athletic.

Today's been such a blur - as you can see - Stalybridge Celtic v Frickley.

We followed this with a trip to Manchester to see fiery stuff - and I didn't get my picture taken - I was very annoyed !

I'm absent - but here's a pic anyway...
