Stalybridge Celtic v Oldham Athletic - 8th July


 The return of Greg Wilkinson ...
Football's back ... and it was a lovely day for it !

First friendly for Celtic - apparently after only one training session on Thursday night - 4-1 to Oldham in the end, but a good run out - and good to see the return of some familiar faces - both on and off the pitch.  Pictures from the game at

Manchester to Mossley ... on Foot ...


 Canalside "apartments" near the City Centre ...

Part of the Greater Manchester Walking Festival - took the train down to Manchester ... and quite literally "walked home" ... not the best weather, and when we got to Hartshead Pike it lashed it down ! Good day out though with the Tameside Ramblers .. pics at

Another "Trip Out" ...


 Warkworth Castle from Amble Marina

'twas a 50th birthday bash for an old friend who used to live opposite - so we made a (very) long weekend out of it - up to Alnwick for the "big do" on Saturday night (me and Mrs Smiffy scored top marks at the ceilidh !!!), followed by a long walk on Sunday (bus to Amble and walk back to Alnwick), followed by a fairly lazy Monday (shopping, tea etc) and home on Tuesday.  Pics mostly from the Sunday walk with a couple from Tuesday - brief stop at the Angel-  at
