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.

Yesterday's visit

Yesterday was a good day for Velda and for dinner had mashed potato and gravy and kept it down and then for tea she had Meat,mash and gravy which she brought some back, you can't go from nothing to steak in one go can you!
The evening visit was different in that she was awake more, there again perhaps I wasn't as boring as usual, you never can tell, its been said that I can talk the hind leg off a donkey!, the donkey's at the EST Centre I was a volunteer at for a number of year still have all their legs I believe.
We have had a new wheelchair delivered for when she comes out and goes to The Christie for out-patient treatment, took a picture of it and showed it to her yesterday and she was quite pleased it was a red one, 
Velda's chariot
Very nice but she's not going to beat this Ladies record in it though

Lady Tanni Grey-Thompsom
11 Gold medals  !!

As you can see its not the type you wheel yourself so she won't be abell to go to the new supermarket round the corner that's due to open shortly, Yes we are coming out of the black hole that was Debdale shopping for the last few years 

Reminds me of the program Number One son John used to watch when he was younger, can you guess what it was,  Sesame Street!! Give me an "A".
 Nearly ready,
Perhaps waiting for Velda to come home to open it hey.

Now for a video of my favourite comedian Rhod Gilbert.


  1. Velda's wheelchair looks very sporty, make sure she sticks to the speed limits once she's out and about.
    I'd never seen Rhod Gilbert before but I'm rapidly becoming a fan.

  2. Check out john's blog for Rhod joking with Prince Charles about the welsh!

  3. Feed her lots of comedy routines like this....they say laughter is the best medicine (whoever THEY are). I think THEY'RE right.
