Hi, I’m Mr Knitter, I am a Baron and a Reverend and live in the North of the UK with my Husband and two dogs, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier Harper-Lee, and an English Springer Spaniel Mazikeen. I have far too many hobbies, including photography, reading, writing, gardening and of course, knitting. I learned to knit when I was a kid, but it was a short-lived thing due to lack of funds for… Read More
This week has been a fun one in many ways, but the best part of it, and the saddest was to find a stray polecat. Yep, live and kicking polecat. He was so friendly and was wandering about looking a little lost, and hiding under things looking out, presumably for a friendly face. That friendly face became mine. At first, I was not sure if he was totally friendly or if he… Read More
And we are off. A lady in Hamburg contacted me and wants to write, so YAY!, here we go. She is sending the first letter which I am looking forward to receiving and starting this journey again.

I think it’s boredom setting in and it’s dragging me down a little. I can not settle into doing anything and as soon as I start something BANG! Bored again. The heat is not… Read More
I wondered the other day, how many of us had penpals when we were growing up, and how many of us had them when we were adults too? I never had a penpal when I was a kid, living in a small village (of French origin) there was not exactly an opportunity to have one, hell, my primary school consisted of just 28 pupils, and apart from general subjects with a huge… Read More
We already have a carpet cleaner which I bought about 5 years ago, and over the years it has been good, but it was a cylinder one that had a suction hose with a detergent host attached and it felt like it was not cleaning as good as I once thought. Yesterday I had ordered a Vax RapidPower Pro Carpet Cleaner and I collected it today after taking the dogs to the… Read More
