Anniversary

Today M and I have been married for 12 years (together 21 years this year), so to celebrate, we went for a nice walk and bought lots of lovely snacks and treats. Due to the way the world is at the moment we did not want to go to a restaurant or pub for a meal. We were not too sure where to go as we tend to drive for hours to go somewhere different, but again due to COVID there are so many places in Yorkshire and Lancashire that are said to be hotspots, so that was out too, and I love to walk on the moors in the footsteps of the Brontes as it is rugged and wild.

We finally set on Lydiate where I grew up and walked along the old railway lines from where Lydiate station used to be back in Victorian Times. (1884 to 1952) and headed south along the lines, then on to the canal bank back to the car. All told we walked 6km. The dogs loved it and are currently sleeping. Mazikeen must have run (as she does not walk anywhere) about 20km, back and forth.

I took a few photos along the way which are below, including some yarn bombing along the way.

31 Days of Music – Day 30

Today’s penultimate pick is from The Boo Radleys. Wake up Boo! was a hit all over the world, and when I first heard it all those years ago, I thought the lead singer was a woman, quite wrong as it was Simon Rowbottom (Sice). The band split in 1999 and Simon decided to write a book set in Victorian Liverpool call “Thimblerigger”. The name Boo Radley was taken from Harper Lee’s novel To Kill A Mockingbird which is a favourite of mine, hence calling my dog Harper-Lee.
