The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

St. Ann's Passage

St.Ann's Passage leading towards King Street which also has a Christmas market this year.

Many years ago - 40 plus - we bought a ring from Hancock & Son - I guess we would not be able to afford to shop there now.

Opposite Hancock was a cafe - long gone..

Christmas Market - St. Ann's Square

You'll find the Christmas markets all around Manchester - certainly spreading in size as the years go by.

This is St. Ann's Square.

Manchester Christmas Markets

The Christmas markets have now taken to the streets of Manchester - even in November they are proving very popular and attracting many visitors.


65 ...

That's me on the right - now officially an old age pensioner / I suppose it's all downhill now ??

Another milestone in life's rich tapestry.

Winter is on the way

This photo of our beech hedge was taken a few weeks ago when we still had some sunny days / now the weather has turned colder and very wet. 
Winter is certainly on the way.


Penguins - move your cursor and take them for a walk !!

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?

W. H. Davies  1870-1940
