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.

Garden Cafe Dog Walkers Club!.

Today at the Etherow Garden Centre Cafe, Owner Maggie in collaboration with friend Jean had put on a lovely birthday spread for Jean's daughter Jacqui, who had come back home to Jean's for her birthday this week!.
Earlier in the week we had been to the Hare and  Hounds at Werneth Low for a meal and then on to Reddish Vale to see the local wildlife where we met friends Mary and Peter and Sasha the Collie.

Enjoying a coffee at the Info Centre

You can see why its called the dog walkers club hey!, they are all friends as well.

Jacqui, Peter and Button with the Stockport viaduct in the background.

And a rest at the lake side.




Today's spread at the Garden Centre Cafe, all the decorations provided and made by Maggie.

Thanks Maggi.




Lots of choice.


We even had a bit of music with my Bose Mini Link on the table on the left there.

Button wants to join in!

Another pressie!.





Mary and Peter.

Tucking in .

A beautiful birthday cake, pity we didn't get a picture before it was attacked!.

Big Al and Colin from the Model Boat club, regular customers now at the buttie wagon on their sailing days.

Here is the splendid Buttie wagon in the Garden centre car park.

The Menu!.

Even George from the boat club arrived with his poorly legs!.

I wasn't going to say the ladies age, well you don't ask do you,!, but its hard not to notice isn't it with all the decorations, bunting and balloons Maggie had put up!.

Certainly doesn't look it does she!!.

So its another day out for Mum and daughter tomorrow before she goes home south hopefully to a better climate than the Rainy City, Manchester, but being a true Mancunian I'm bias anyway!.

So if you'r stuck for somewhere to have your next birthday celebration try the Etherow Garden Centre Cafe, I'm sure Maggie will sort you out, or just call in for a cuppa and a snack from the menu above.

 You never know you might find a plant in the unusual selection on display, I know I have in the past!.

A friend in need is a pain in the Bum!!

I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists somewhere else in the universe is that none of it has bothered to contact us!.

  I went live on the internet myself the other day- I was plugging in my modem and got my fingers stuck in the plug!.

It's the way I tell em!.
