Now what to do today? No football as we don't do FA Cup runs, the sun is out and the sky is blue. Oh what to do (hey they rhymes) anyway.....
Nantwich food and drink festival? Tempting
Kings in Salford for a couple of fine ales? Maybe.
All I can stuff down my throat in Taybarn in Wigan and then the Utd game on a dodgy internet channel? Aye I reckon so.
Food, internet football and general laziness rules I reckon.

Red Rose Ramblings is back. I have left this place to gather dust for far too long so it’s time to wipe down the keyboard (quiet at the back) and start scribbling again.
So what have I been up to since my last couple of posts? Well I wrote and published my first book, which is probably the main reason why this place has gone to rack and ruin. You can find info on the book here www.tripsonglue.co.uk, please have a look (you can buy one as well if you like!)Erm what else?... Travelling around watching FC United of Manchester, eating the superb non league pies and seeking out pubs with fine ales. I also visited Stratford earlier in the year, sadly I didn’t get to bump into Dr Who or indeed purchase tickets for Hamlet in London, but gig/play ticket rage is a subject for another post I should imagine.
I have also been reading some great books, at the moment I have two football ones on the go, “Mad for It” by Andy Mitten, about various derby games around the world and “Calcio” the history of Italian football, totally fascinating. I have also done my first piece of acting, well extra work on the Ken Loach film “Looking for Eric” which premieres at the Cannes Film Festival next year. That was a good day and a laugh, hopefully I will make it in to the final cut, though I reckon it is much cooler to be an extra on the DVD.
