A Walk In The Woods

A Walk In The Woods

As I mentioned in the last post, I have taken to doing a bit of walking since coming back from holiday. Well, I’ve managed to live in Brampton for some thirty three years and yet never been to the Ridge Wood between Brampton and Lannercost. I took a walk, along with my Wife Sue, out […]

Whoops! I forgot about that!

Whoops! I forgot about that!

As I get older I, along with most other people, get forgetful. Where did I put my glasses? What’s todays date? What’s her name again? But I didn’t think I would get half way through a posting and then forget all about it. If you read my previous post then you would have seen that […]

The Sun Has Got His Hat On

The Sun Has Got His Hat On

Spring is here again and so are the vibrant colours to see through the camera. I thought I’d take a trip into Carlisle and take a look. Having a wander round the magnificent castle was fun as it’s something I rarely do even though I see the place almost every day. A little wander back […]
