Beryl Cook and Plymouth Argyle - What More Could I Ask!

I received my first Christmas present yesterday. A trip to Plymouth to see a Beryl Cook Exhibition and watch Plymouth Argyle play Birmingham.

The Exhibition was good, with a video playing which showed two interviews with Beryl Cook. There were lots of paintings there which I had never seen before and lots which made me smile. Of course I couldn't leave without buying something, Unfortunately all the signed prints were too expensive for me to buy, ranging from £700 upwards, so I ended up with lots of cards which I will be putting into a frame and hanging, pride of place, in my sitting room.

Plymouth Argyle played really well, getting most of the play throughout the match, but just couldn't manage a goal. Birmingham were on the back foot most of the match, although they did play a little better in the second half. The only goal of the match came in the 61st minute. Birmingham had only one attempt on goal before this, their second attempt found the back of the net.

On the way home, my daughter and I talked about the match and I concluded I was both happy and disappointed with the game. Happy that we had played so well but disappointed that we had lost.

Roll on Boxing day when we will be down at Home Park to watch Plymouth Argyle take on Southampton.

Football is best with friends/someone to talk to. In the lower divisions the standard is often so dire. Good for you for going all the way to Plymouth. I haven't seen my team all season (even though they are flying high at the top of Div 3). Even when they are at Brizzle Rovers, I think I am busy.

I never have time to talk with who I'm with as I'm always shouting at the players!

We went again on Boxing day, was soo cold but well worth it as we won 2-0 against Southampton
