Week Ending Saturday ...



Not too bad at work - there's been some "managerial tweaking" with our walks to try and balance them - as such next to no overtime this week due to "stupidly long walk" (but I did work my day off !!).  Shorts came out for a few days as well this week - until Friday anyway when the weather turned nasty/wet etc.  Nice butty this week too - the election money came through (will use to pay some of small boy's college accommodation fees !!).

Not too bad today either - finished comfortably in time to get home and then dash out to watch the Championship Play-Off Final 'twixt Derby County and QPR.  With Mrs Smiffy's family from "daarn that way" (and at least two of them at Wembley for the game) there was only going to be one winner (especially when QPR went down to 10 men) .....

..... until the 89th minute ...  

.... Gutted ... but then again having watched the FCUM v Ashton United game not that long back - I can see it from both sides.  Still gutted for all - a few Belper Town buddies were also down there as well.   


Came home and promptly got camera out - it's been a wet one today but the sun came out by 1715hrs ... had a play outside with the reversing ring (earlier indoor stuff here) - have finally realised though that buying a 77mm reversing ring was NOT the best move, as it means I can only put the big heavy 70-200mm lens (backwards) on the camera ...and when you're "hand held" it makes everything a touch tricky (so I've just spent a tenner of that election "bonus" buying a 58mm reversing ring which will work with the 85mm 1.8 lens - - which is MUCH lighter to hold !!).  Anyway - here's a few from the back garden ...

Raindrops on Leaves Etc 24May14

Might wander out for a bit of the Madrid v Madrid game ... but need early night as I'm heading off to Belper in the morning - by public transport (Mrs S went down at lunchtime today).
