... to say the least !!!!
Work in the morning was "livened up" somewhat ... by a real live dog bite inflicted on yours truly - walking down the road when a large alsatian (off lead) came haring towards me with all guns blazing. As taught, the bag was used to protect my front - however dog ran round and bit me from behind ... in a rather 'awkward place' (I'll let you decide !). Having lifted up trouser leg to see no blood pouring down it, I finished off before checking the damage. Ouch - five puncture wounds in that 'awkward place'. Better safe than sorry thought I ... so it was off to Tameside Hospital to get it looked at - they cleaned it up before giving me the tetanus jobbie (and a pile of penicillin). Got home in time to grab bag and shoot up the hill to see the "local derby" - Mossley v Droylsden.
Tom Pratt on the ball ...
A very good performance from the home team - and a result that surprised many (myself included !) - a 4-2 win and a very healthy attendance of 389. Pics from the game at

Home - and it was starting to hurt a bit more !! Quiet night in (with a lot of standing up !!!)
Sunday - and the bruising is coming up nicely - naturally I did report this to my Manager so no doubt there'll be forms to fill in at work tomorrow etc etc etc. I've even took a couple of "selfies" - because they'll probably be needed. Before anyone asks though, I will not be going down the blame/claim line - call me stupid (!) but my only real concern is that the dog owner gets a talking to (especially as some new people have moved in across the road - and they have a small child). We'll see what goes off tomorrow.
In the meantime - "webs on the web" - some pics taken this morning in a damp and foggy back garden.
Time to limp off into the sunset ...
