Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Dunham Massey

I am in Manchester visiting Mum and as the weather was beautiful today we went to Dunham Massey Park in Cheshire.

Mum really enjoyed the outing. She is 91 and is able to walk with the aid of a frame but enjoys being pushed around when we go for longer walks.
A pure white daffodil
A blue poppy
A moorhen with 2 baby chicks which looked about 1 day old.


  1. How sweet! Your mum looks like she's a lot of fun to be around. Lucky you to still have her with you.

  2. Your mum looks a lively, young 91! Good on her, may she live many more happy and healthy years.
    The picture of the Meconopsis - blue poppy is lovely. Tried ot grow them here in Melbourne but oddly wasn't successful. I need to try again...

  3. nice, I never seen the chicks of a moorhen before. Love it.

  4. That looks like a beautiful place, nice shots. Your mum is impressive at 91!

  5. Wow, I've never seen a blue poppy! Great you still have your mother!

  6. Love that blue poppy - I am trying to grow one here - in Shropshire - my dad is 94 this year - but he is not very mobile and uses a frame and a scooter-

  7. Loved the flowers and your mom looks adorable!
