It’s possible the more observant amongst you may have noticed a recent blogging hiatus.
I moved house.
Now I live near here:
Shropshire Union Canal
And take the dog for walks here:
Pedro at Wharton Locks
In the countryside. Proper rural. With mud and tractors and a real pub.
And I can see the stars at night. So many stars. In a vast inky sky.
I love it.
Where is your favourite dog walk?
And if you don’t have a little canine pal, where is your favourite walk that involves a proper pub?
The Dee estuary, viewed from Hilbre Island, on the Wirral.
This is a beautiful spot on the North West coast of England.
Also one of the most polluted places in Western Europe.
Well worth a visit. But not on a Bank Holiday.
Never seen so many Wannabe Wags in One Place.
“Rather than turning over a new leaf, prune your tree so that new leaves continue to blossom.”

Let me know if you recognise the species… some kind of Cherry?
What is the female equivalent of Del Boy and Rodders?
I think we might be it @altvtgmarket
- Alty Market Flo
Lots of browsers. Lots of rain. Lots of wafting fried onion from the bbq chicken stand. Lots of people buying grub and booze. Lots of angst from the guitarist.
Next year we’re doing Christmas fudge and mulled wine.
Defo where the dollar is.
That’s not knitting!
Back to the Artisan market on Sunday. Who knew Altrincham had such allure?
Busy and buzzy, some fabulous produce, Troffel truffles were to die for, Farmer’s Wife was dishing out amazing looking hot dogs, and we couldn’t resist the hot cider and calvados stall – no wonder these two are smiling, the fumes alone could knock you out at 40 paces:
Charming Sunday Artisan Market at the old Market Place in Altrincham, Cheshire.
Smell: Cloves in cider and Farmer’s Wife sausages.
See: Leather suitcases and miles of bunting.
Touch: Hyacinth bulbs and ancient marbles.
Taste: Hot cheddar cheese and Rhubarb Flapjacks.
Hear: Vintage jazz and Pedro woofing.
