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.

More boat finishing

Over the last few days I've been putting the finishing touches to the Narra Boat.
On Sunday after dinner John and I visited the Kingfisher Pub in Greenfield, only to park I might add, then it was along the canal to take pictures of canal locks and equipment to research a project I have in mind for a later date.


   
This dog on the boat never stopped barking in the half hour we stopped and chatted to the guy who owned the boat, wanted to keep moving I guess.

Then it was back home and a bit of work on the boat.
Windows all glazed and finished, not a mark on them.Whew!! 

Our visit to the lake on Monday was cool but sunny.
Nutty Dog.

If you like Chihuahua'a look at this ladies blog!.


Quiet Moment.

Then home for more modelling.
Engine compartment, not all top show.

Fuel filler and lock handle

Gas locker and tools

The controls.

Well its just the bumpers to add now, have to get my sewing kit out and attach the chains and shackle them to the bow and stern and then its finished.

Yesterday after the afternoon out, I was taking my washing in and though this seems a perfectly simple thing to do, one of the plastic clothes pegs flew apart and the spring hit me in the eye (Lid). 
Luckily the eye lids reaction is very quick so no damage was done, I'll never joke about the mundane work of housewives again, its dangerous workout there, I could understand it if I were riding a BMX up on to the garage roof like some kids do these days, but taking the washing in!!.
Take care out there its a dangerous world.
