Here Comes the Summer!

Happy New Year Everyone! I hope you've all had a festive season that was merry and bright.

On Saturday morning we packed up Christmas and put it in back in the cupboard. Just the decorations, that is, putting mince pies and cake into long-term storage is just asking for trouble.

On Saturday afternoon we were off to South Cheshire, for an away game against Nantwich Town - always a lovely, welcoming club to visit. And they have smashing sunsets!

Sometimes we win, sometimes they win. This time it was our turn to win, 3-2.

Yesterday I was out walking in East Cheshire - Middlewood to Bollington, up here (White Nancy) for some views and a sandwich, then back along the towpath to the station.

And that was my weekend - lots of Cheshire, lots of sky.

Oh dear, I may have spoken too soon about the summer. I've just noticed it has started to rain.


  1. A happy new year to you too my dear Crab. That is indeed a beautiful sunset, winter sunsets are always the best I think. I'd not heard of White Nancy before so got some enlightenment from Wiki. Sounds like a nice walk. Roll on Summer, do you think we'll actually get one this year?

  2. I do, I really do! It might have already started - I've just been outside: the sky is blue, the sun is shining. It was a tad nippy though.

    We can't see the outside world from our office - all we've got is a little high corner of glass. It's filthy, so we can't see anything except a bit of dim light.

    It's a good job I'm a smoker and therefore get to pop outside from time to time.
