HULL Hull fair life money toys

Brandy snap, Coconut’s, Greasy Bob’s and a waltz.

It’s been that time of the year here in Hull. The largest traveling fair in Europe comes to town for a week of chaos. The noise, lights and the aroma of burgers, burnt onions, hot dogs and chips fills the air. For some reason coconut’s are always on every stall. Millions of them. Brown, hairy […]

The Wedding (part three)

This drive was relatively easy. Three hours up through the Yorkshire Moors then into Cumbria to a tiny Hamlet called Hutton Roof. The house we were staying in was quite old with an odour of ancient, fusty carpets. It says 1874 above the door and I think that’s the last time it’s been decorated. The […]

That’s 6 hrs 6 mins if you’re in a Ferrari. Took nearly 9 hours but worth every mile. What a beautiful place…. And of course, the happy couple!

The wind started to howl, amazing lightening flashed and thunder literally did shake the building. Today though, has been very hot and beautiful. We walked to the shops […]

I love the fact that nature can grow anywhere if it’s just left alone. And before you ask, that isn’t Ed Sheeran hiding, it’s the back end of a cow!

Award!!

I’ve won an award! The Honourable Order of Best Blog owners! The last time I actually won something was in the amusement arcade in Bridlington. One of those grabber machines. Might have been a teddy bear, or a dog…not a real one that would be cruel sticking a pooch in the glass box. So thank […]

beach seagulls! SUMMER

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside..

Yesterday we took a little trip to Hornsea. Its a typical seaside town like many here in the UK. I’m very lucky where I live. Half an hours drive and it’s the east coast. The North Sea is a bit nippy even in summer but the sandy beach is beautiful. We did get dive bombed […]

TODAY’S THE DAY.

First of May nineteen sixty five. An amazing event occurred. The angels sang, the heavens shook and flags were unfurled. I came into this world. I don’t know exactly what time because I didn’t have my watch on but one second it was dark the next thing it’s very bright and some bloke in a […]
