Went to the Salford UniÂ climbing wall with Jillian Jeh, Nabeel, Simon and Ali on Thursday under the protective wing of the University of Manchester Hiking Club (thank you). Had a great time although I couldn’t do any diificult climbing myself due to aÂ gash in my finger trying to fix Sha’s car. But I was the “elderly &Â informed instructor” and with my own harness, shoes and belay device managed to look like an old hand. Luckily remembered the knots, but it’s like cycling; you never forget.
This weekendÂ is football weekend; I played on Friday as usual (lost by 2 goals), then on Saturday Man Utd played Middlesborough away (2:2 draw), and today Chelsea v Tottenham, not to mention giants Watford v Plymouth!
