One thing I miss about social media is posting random thoughts and photos.
This 'micro-blog', which is a bit of an experiment, serves to scratch that itch.
19th September 2021
Lovely to be back in Newcastle with my old friends from the WWE. Came here on a stag do once, but didn't encounter the iconic bridge or Tyne!
3rd September 2021
Just completed a 'staycation' cruise aboard the Disney Magic, a ship that I first sailed on 23 years ago. We've both aged with grace.
Welcome to Chapel
19th August 2021
Our house is currently a building site, so we've moved to Chapel-en-le-Frith in the High Peak. I'm enjoying all the new walks!
30th July 2021
Following the 'Taco Legend' queso recipe and arranging the ingredients into the shape of the Mexican flag. I'm glad things are opening because I think I'm starting to go crazy.
Mellor Cross dusk
16th July 2021
Evening walk opportunities don't come along too often at the moment, so I jumped at the chance to trot up to Mellor Cross. Manchester looking peaceful and dreamlike.
Newest old record
7th July 2021
Couldn't resist picking up this 1977 'Star Wars' LP from High Street Books, New Mills. It's older than I am and still sounds fantastic. First pick? The Cantina Song.
5th July 2021
Drove out to Buxton for 'Jab: Part II'. Let's hope the sequel is better than the original, which didn't really work.
Uncaged at last
2nd July 2021
After 11 whole days enjoying 'The Great Indoors' my isolation has finally come to an end. The lambs have put on weight since I last saw them.
24th June 2021
Just when I thought it was safe to venture out, I caught it. Had a rough few days, but through the worst now. Final day of self isolation!
10th June 2021
Made it into Manchester for some late night cocktails. Love all the new bars, outdoor seating and pedestrianised streets that have opened up recently.
Edit: It transpired that I caught Covid-19 on this evening. Still had a great time.
28th May 2021
Unearthing some old cassettes from the 1990s and letting them play for the first time in years. Lovely to hear some buzzing and hissing, modern formats are way too clean.
The Murder Stone
20th May 2021
My hike last night took me past 'The Murder Stone', on the road between Disley and Whaley Bridge. A terrible crime that took place in this beautiful setting almost 200 years ago.
11th May 2021
First jab is in the arm! The setup at SportCity Manchester was impressive, such an efficient system that still felt personable. God bless the NHS!
