Keeping the Legs Turning


I've been off my bike for a little while because of various reasons, and so it was with some trepidation that I sallied forth this morning on the old rusty stead. But boy was I glad I made the effort! I managed a pretty decent 6 3/4 miles today in just under 50 minutes, at …

PamBook – 6th April 2021


Today is… 6th April What I’ve been up to today… my first job was to clear the bombsite that was my study. After camping in it for the past week at Easter School it was in desperate need of a “tidy up and put away”. It’s only a tiny room and so it can be …

Bee Across The Water


This little bee has arrived at last. I made him for my daughter who is working in sunnier climes and experiencing a touch of home sickness just now. The bee is the symbol of Manchester, and I crocheted it to remind her of home. She loves him!

Tuesday’s Pic of the Day

View From The PamCam – Winter


Well, the papers have been forecasting heavy snow in the Manchester area since before Christmas and even though it has been pretty chilly, with one or two hard frosts in the last couple of weeks, the predicted disaster has failed to materialise. Until today, when a bit of snow fell overnight and the whole region …

My Manchester


Today marks a very sad and poignant anniversary in my Manchester's history. It was exactly 12 months ago today that a terrorist bomb was detonated in the Manchester Arena at the end of a concert given by Ariana Grande. In its aftermath, there was a tremendous outpouring of love and support, of music and poetry, …

Lent Challenge – “Give”


Part of the Lenten discipline is to give - to charity, of your time, of yourself, help to others - and this picture represents one of those. It's not always possible for me to give cash to charity, but something that I've been trying to do is to crochet some hats to give to a …
