My first day off this year. We went with our friend Michael on the Railway Walk to Romaldkirk. We got there about 11, and nipped into the Rose & Crown where we had hot chocolate and found they had just made some scones, so fresh from the oven with strawberry jam and clotted cream all round! Fantastic.

City Vs Stoke

A sort of belated Xmas pressie for Nathan. 2 hours down the road to the Etihad for the Stoke game. City won 1-0 which is a bonus.

Aguero, still on injury leave arrives.

 The rest of the team turn up in their luxury Starliner coach.

 We were there quite early, the stadium was almost empty when we sat down.

 The 'City' boy & his Dad.

 The team came out to warm up. We could have reached out and touched them from our seats.

 Nathan really wanted Nicky to come too this time.

 The 'Beast' Negredo.

 Flag waving, music & singing before the start.

 When it finally filled up it was a sell out attendance.
