Another Weekend away ...

The amazing weather cock (grasshopper ?) on St Johns Church @ Chelmorton

Enough anger ... a weekend (OK 27+ hours after work etc) away starting down in Belper for a family birthday do - I say one birthday, but there's about 5 birthdays in June so the birthday cake candles had to be lit several times (and "Happy Birthday" sang a similar number of times as well !!). A quick χρόνος around the River Gardens (and more pictures) was followed by me sneaking off for some football (sad to note the manner of Chile's exit in the afternoon game ...).  First half in the "George" and second half in "Arkwrights Bar" (with a couple of very nice pints of Bumphill Brewery - Alfreton - "Drops of Jupiter" - sad to see Uruguay go out of course !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sunday - a bit of a wander around the Derbyshire Dales before home (large boy cooked so I managed most of the Netherlands/Mexico game).  A few pics from the weekend ...

Belper plus a Sunday Walk 29Jun14

... and now - in front of telly watching Costa Rica v Greece (on my laptop of course - Mrs Smiffy just NOT interested enough, despite having spent time working in Greece !).

That was the weekend that was ...
