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
Minus 2 6:15 am and I’m out walking the dogs. Minus 2 and I’m not wearing a coat. Minus 2 but the dogs are happy to be out in the open. Minus 2 and they are jumping in the mounds of leaves piled up on the pavement. Minus 2 and they are happy, jolly and having fun. Minus 2 and I’m shivering and trying to walk fast but the dogs are not… Read More
They say, “You can’t have/do that, it’s bad for you.” “That carcinogenic, don’t eat that.” and much, much more. I agree on some things, like heroin, smoking, and eating glass.

I like most of the characters so far, but my favorite has to be Kathy Bates as Iris. There is nothing I have seen her in that I… Read More
The voice in his head never stopped for breath, it spoke of danger, it warned of death. It shouted, “Hurry, pack up and flee!” And all before his morning pee. The Bing Bang Theory has at the end of each episode a piece of writing by Chuck Lorre, the above is number 372, which I thought was inspiring, and had to share.
I love quiet times, and I mean TV off, no mobiles or computers, just the silence and a book. But all of a sudden it seems too much. My partner of 16 years has gone to stay with his parents in Ireland, which means I am at home in England alone with the dogs. It has been 11 days so far, and I have to wait till the 5th December till he… Read More
The brain is an amazing thing, and Jill Bolte Taylor proved this. I read her rather insightful book “My Stroke of Insight” many years ago, and have read it a few times. I discovered her story on Ted Talks as we had a TV channel that broadcast the talks, her’s was the first one I say, and I was rather hooked on the whole thing, however, this is the talk that opens… Read More
