Paddy O'Hare @ Railway Greenfield 10Dec15

 Man at work - Paddy O'Hare ...

A rare chance to get out on a Thursday - so made the most by hopping on a train for a four minute ride to Greenfield so see some music ... and very good it was too !! A few pics at

Paddy O'Hare - Greenfield 10Dec15

Note writing this just after full-time on a football day ... due to having the "Day from Hell" at work - getting home at about 1445hrs - however the "match of choice" (Stalybridge Celtic v Harrogate Town) had been called off before lunch-time ... as had pretty much everything else in the vicinity.

Tonight - the posties Christmas Bash - see how long I last !!!

The Plus Side of being a Postie ..

... working 'out in the sticks' .. another phone clear out brings up these two pics - from end of October and end of November ...

(For those "not in the know", the monument is known as Pots'n'Pans - walked up there many times when "off duty"- but "duty" takes me this close as well !!).

A Bad Attack of the Wind (Mossley v Brighouse Town) ....

Apart from the pint of "Deluded IPA" (Stockport Brewery) ... the best part of the day - Dave Short has just put Mossley 1-0 up ...

... it's been a while "sans football" - a family wedding, bad weather etc etc ... and then on Saturday - more bad weather.

However Mossley v Brighouse Town was called "ON" (I was getting texts from here there and everywhere whilst "out on the job" !!) - but I finished in fairly good time (it IS only 5 mins up the road when I eventually get back from work) - so headed for a VERY windy Seel Park ...

Sadly (for the Mossley fans), it was Brighouse Town who adapted better to the conditions, and despite Mossley going in 1-0 up at half-time ... 'twas only a matter of time I'm afraid.

Another midweek without I'm afraid - tonight I am reduced to Champions League down at the pub ... when I get there !!!
