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.

Pinocchio gone in the bin

The nose feeding didn't work, again too rich for her, so its back to the porridge, that used to mean you were in prison, oh well I suppose its a bit like that, isn't it?.
Done 90 trips to The Christie now and at 15 miles a round trip and two trips a day, that's 1350 miles, soon mounts up doesn't it, I couldn't understand why I had to keep filling up the tank. but she's worth it! and I like driving, bit tricky though at night with the kamikaze cyclists with no lights and ignoring traffic lights. 

It was the Team rounds Thursday and they are still happy with her, though not her walking progress and putting on weight.
She was walking a bit better in the afternoon and walked halfway down the corridor with the assistance of the nurse and zimmer frame. Had another C T Scan in  the afternoon, at least I was there with her this time and it was a bit easier for her having had the procedure before, they reckon ITS still shrinking,so that's good news.
Yesterday was a bit better with the walking as she didn't have any drips up so no drip stand to drag about.
Its amazing the amount of patients stood outside the hospital holding on to their drip stands with one hand and a ciggie in the other! , a nurse told me once that the smokers were the quickest patients up and walking after their operations, only because they had to get out for a smoke, at least Velda is spared that as she stopped before Christmas. 
A couple of new songs that might be re- released for us oldies and very apt for Velda!.

Herman's Hermits new release
Mrs. Brown, You've Got  A Lovely  Walker
And another one
Willie Nelson ---
On the Commode  Again 
                       That's all folks


  1. Hi Pete. Glad you holding up with all the back and forth. Its been a long time since i have seen you and Velda. Would be great to catch up with you.


  2. Hi Mike, a man after my own heart, what do you think of about the EU wanting cycle lanes everywhere here, they don't seem to realise that cyclists here ride on the pavement and go though red lights as though they are not there! Perhaps the solution is to paint the pavements,half green and half black and leave the roads for the rest of us, and mentioning lights most don't have them at night, its a nightmare!.

  3. So glad IT is shrinking... Love your song choices.
