Welcome to my new Blog

Welcome to my Blog.
My Blog is mostly about my hobbies, ie Model boats, Cross Stitch, Gardening, Days out and about and Photography you might recognize the hat and the dog rather than me. My models and other hobbies can be found in the tabs at the top above the header picture.
There will also be entries of days out with my long haired Chihuahua "Pepe", weather permitting of course.

It was the dentist for Velda yesterday had she had bitten off more than she could chew on Sunday whilst Jet washing in the back garden!, Made a nice job of the garden though, I do buy her the best tools for the job!

Like new hey, as good as the day it was laid.
I was told to take Pepe out of the way, has he would be getting all wet. So not believing my luck it was off to Debdale Park and round the Lower Reservoir for us.

Practising capsizing in the distance at the sailing centre, Ahh pleasant memories of my youth learning to Windsurf and canoe there after leaving shift work on early retirement, not quite youth though, I was in my mid fifties,but enjoying the freedom of completing courses for once.

The blocks in the foreground put in when the reservoirs were updated a couple of years ago  

Great crested grebe nesting out on the water, not as daft is Etherow geese evidently.

Everything in bloom at the moment, no wonder I'm sneezing!.

Then it was home to a bit of lunch and then modelling, this is the front end steps and cupboards and drawers, must get that section on the right straightened out , see what I meant about photo's showing up your defects,   still some tidying up to do on this section yet, but you see the idea, Tv to go on the cabinet on the right.


  1. Hope mums tooth or lack of is recovering, she did a good job of the patio but you did miss a Youtube opportunity with the mix of your camera a karcher and Pepe :)


  2. If she see's a camera pointing anywhere near her,she goes ballistic as you know.
