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.

Christmas and New Year

Happy New year to everyone!.

 Had a nice Christmas and New year, a lot nicer than the previous couple of years I must say,that is probably due to a wonderful family and friends old and new, thank you all!.
Christmas dinner was at John's and there were two lady missionaries there to share our family with us and also to "Skype" home to their families.Technology these days is wonderful isn't it!, they could hardly sit still waiting for their turn to "Phone home".

 The lady missionaries tucking in.

Mum and eldest G/ Daughter 

Duckie,Jacob and Ruthie.

Lady friend, Marjorie and I had a drink together on Boxing Day and Pepe enjoyed having company other than mine I'm sure though he wasn't too happy with his Christmas hat!.

Trying to open his Christmas present!.

The day after Boxing Day is always a Frostbite Sail Day at the boat club and here we are enjoying ourselves nice and warm in the clubhouse, having hot soup and mince pies, better than outside sailing boats in the rain and cold.

All wrapped up, Pepe doesn't need much wrapping up though.

To round off the holidays it was off to "The Stable Gate" the Brewers Fayre pub at Denton, for my birthday party with the family, a good Do, nice food and company and the staff are second to none.

Beautiful Hey

Have I shrunk!!

All bigger than me now.

Look no hat!, Marjorie and Duckie.

So there you are a nice holiday, I must say though that I feel heartily sorry for the people on the coast with all the flooding there, its not only now when the storms finish it's all the time afterwards drying out and getting back into their homes, and the environment agency just announced its cutting jobs, who makes these crazy decisions at a time like this!!.

Well thats all for now folks!.   
Oh, did I forget to mention my age!, you can take a guess and comment on it, no rude comments though as this is a family friendly blog.
