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 with pictures taken at and around our Model Boat club at Etherow Country Park, where I can be found quite a few days a week on the landing stage, 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.

Is spring here?


You can see that I've almost finished the gate only need to fill the countersunk holes in the posts and repaint the old hinges and fittings with black Hammerite!.

  Had a good day yesterday rubbed down the superstructure of the boat and resprayed it and then varnished the stand for the next project, then it was starting to paint the fencing (3 panels then fed-up) 

Then it was John's for dinner which the girls cooked as it was Mother's day and very nice too!
We went for a ride to Uppermill after dinner and had a stroll along the canal, never more than 100 yds from the main street, very muddy but got a few pictures whilst John carried Pepe, he would have disappeared in the mud otherwise.

Hope mine looks a bit better than this one, perhaps its waiting for it's spring clean, must be nice to have your own mooring though, front art work on the bow looks similar to mine. 






 We then stopped off at Phillip and Jean's (JO's dad's) and they all had another dessert whilst I held Pepe up out of the way of their 3 dogs!

Still eating alright as you can see from my dinner and dessert on Saturday, a few veggies in there somewhere!. 
Tesco's Deli Cornish pasty
Tesco's Rhubarb pie
Should be getting commission for this advertising hey. 

As you can see from the outdoor pictures everywhere is still damp and covered in moss, but spring is getting there, beautiful day to-day will be taking Pepe to Etherow for dinner, might get a veggie chip buttie, hopefully will see a few old friends as I've not been to the lake for weeks, its still hard to be there without Velda, brings back lots of memories.
