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.

Last few days

Sunday's I usually go to Number One Son's for dinner but had to give it a miss this week as a couple of the family had stomach bug's, they are better now I'm glad to say, I made up for it by going out to dinner with mate Bob!. he has to take his wife Joyce to meet her lady relatives once a month at the Hare and Hounds at Werneth Low, so we decided to have dinner there as well, in another room of course.

The Wild Bunch
Well we wouldn't want to tangle with this lot would we!
We had a nice meal same as last time and left the ladies there to do their nattering.

Finished my Tomb Raider 2013 game, was a hard one that with lots of baddies, the one at the end was really tough!.

Tuesday and Wednesday I was up at John's to do a bit of Puppy minding as John was in Scotland, wifey was working  and children in Venice with their other Grandparent's, beats the pant's off Prestatyn that doesn't it!.

I had a bit more exercise with Jessie the Cockapoo as she is a bit stronger than Pepe and needs a bit longer walk, so it was off down the Leesbrook Nature Trail which is just behind the houses opposite John's.
Tuesday it was off to the right and up the hills.

Then Wednesday it was off to the left pathway
Be a lot nicer in Summer when the trees are not so bare, still its nice to have this on your doorstep isn't it.

Why am I tied up here, my dad always let's me off my lead, Well I'm not your dad I'm your Grand/dad so live with it!.

Then it was back to her home, a drink and a read of my book to pass another hour with her!.

During the week I got a notification on Facebook that one of my friends Kath had posted a picture which included me?.
Night duty in the Ambulance control, I think they thought that was me at the back, I don't think so!, I would have had a white shirt like the rest, but there is Kath, Tony and Bryn, who is that at the back?, a driver I think!.

Then there was another picture of some of the girls from the call centre
And there is Velda middle row right, in the jumper, always had a jumper on!
Aah happy days, though very busy at the Manchester control Centre there was a great sense of team work.
Well on that happy note I'll leave you.
Fred got interested in his ancestors. He looked up his family tree and found most of them still swinging in the branches!.

They say that children brighten up the home.That's because they never turn the ruddy lights off!.



  1. Nice blog, Duckie

  2. Was wondering about the photos from Venice you have clarified that how does Pepe feel about the dog sitting did it make you feel nostalgic seeing the photos?

  3. Yes happy days, you don't realise it at the time as it was quite a stressful job, but it had its rewarding moments as well

    1. Forgot to ask whats John doing in Scotland without his lady wife?BnB

    2. Working!, some of his area is up there now and he goes up there for a couple of days every now and then.
