Blog

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.

Mexican Night

30th July 2021

Close up of queso in a pan

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

Manchester skyline from Mellor Cross

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

Star Wars LP

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.

Vaccination #2

5th July 2021

Kristian Scott in Buxton

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

Manchester evening

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.

Caught Covid

24th June 2021

Manchester evening

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!

Evening, Manchester

10th June 2021

Manchester evening

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.

Revisiting cassettes

28th May 2021

Cassette player

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

The Murder Stone, Disley

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.

Vaccination #1

11th May 2021

Kristian Scott in face covering

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!
