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.

Out and about July 2015.

Not done much blogging this month, writer's block I think!.
Still been out and about quite a bit though!, we had a day in St Annes On Sea and the weather was kind to us, then a day in Buxton, and this last Thursday had a trip to Frodsham!.
Always go to Frodsham on a Thursday if you are going to Steve Webb's the Model shop as it's Market day there and the lady's don't feel left out. Marjorie got a nice pair of Pants and two tops so was pleased about that and wants to go again, so as I said always go on a Thursday!.

We had a nice meal in the Bears Paw Inn, there is parking round the back £1 for 3 Hrs and you get a refund in the pub with your order, can't be bad as it's bad parking normally on Market day.

For dog owners, this is outside the pub opposite, The Queens Head.

How about this a vac to make any woman drool, my wife would have loved one of these!. 

Yesterday Friday we went to the Cotebrook Shire Horse Centre again to see how the young Colts born this year were getting on and was just in time to see one getting his first set of shoes fitted!,

Owner (in the red pants) keeping an eye on things.


Colt foal

Mother being very reassuring 

Was funny seeing the colt slipping and sliding around with his new shoes on!.

Another young foal we've met when he was born now named

And proud Mum

There are some nice flower arrangements round the farm as well if you are into gardening!.

There are also other nice animals to see ie these nice little Piglets!.

She likes pigs, hope that's not why she goes out with me?.

So with their special offer of a free pass for the next month with your ticket I guess we will be going again in the near future!.
Nice place and nice owners!, nice meals in the Cafe too!.

Meanwhile back at the lake a few AAAH pictures.

Mother and baby Mandarins

The bodyguard

Only one of four left, nature is cruel at times!, perhaps the bodyguard isn't as good as he thinks he is!.

I used to be schizophrenic, but we're alright now!.

If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?.

Do illiterates get the full effect of Alphabet soup?.

 How do you know when it's time to tune your bagpipes?.

That's all for now folks, hopefully won't be so long next time!.
