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.

Yesterday 1.1 Scale remodelling

Yesterday tired of tripping over the corner of the decking that's been there for a number of years I finally decided to do something about it!.
So it was out with my new battery powered tools I'd bought last year and got stuck in, first it was a straight edge to cut to, as seen by my son John who is in the refurbishment trade, and of course you need a little helper like a hole in the head don't you!.
The battery circular saw was good but the wood underneath was still damp, so it was a number of shallow cuts to get though, so took a bit longer plus the saw cut wasn't deep enough so had to finish with     a manual saw. 
So apart from the damp wood it turned out well, aching shoulder's now though.
Ryobi tools, the best and no wires to worry about, same battery fit's all!.

Clear path to the back gate now.

As you can see the very wet winter we are having is playing havoc with the fencing.
This side is alright but the other side is full of moss, still it will but sorted out in the spring.

Just want the sun now, to get out the chairs and lounger.

I don't usually take pictures of trucks other than Eddie Stobart but they certainly stand out in the crowd don't they.

But this one stopped at my favourite buttie wagon near to B&Q at the Snipe, caught my eye because of the views of Cumbria on it  

Front and sides.

Side windows

Side of Diesel tanks

And then of course you can't miss this one can you, perhaps it's a lady driver, lot's of those about these days, and I'm not bothered about that.

  2. Hi Dukie

    The colourful lorries look very nice and would be nice to see as RC models?.......Would be great fun to build and drive round your back yard?
    The show at Trafford Park this weekend will probably have some on show?
