A Cathedral Walk

During my lunch (half) hour one day last week. 
I walked through the neighbouring Cathedral precincts. 
 luckily I had my phone with me. 
I shall have to try and take my camera next time!

THEN today I wondered through with my camera proper!
Did it make any differences?

Elvis is in the garden!


  1. Lovely pictures. I'm glad you gave up your lunch hour(half) to capture these and motivate us.

  2. How lucky you are to be surrounded by such beauty...

  3. Love the shot of the entrance.

  4. I was impressed by the phone photos. I couldn't tell the difference but then I'm not a photographer! How do you get phone photos on to the net?

  5. Saz the pictures are just beautiful. Thankyou for sharing. Take Care.

  6. The pictures are just great! Love them all.
    There's something about benches that appeals..... music or no music!
    Great place to visit.

  7. The very first picture caught my eye immediately...there's something about the veil of oddly glimmering light that entranced me. Lovely shots, either or camera...but still, the first is my favorite!

  8. These building fascinate me. I always start thinking about the men that would have built them.

  9. Wow, who knew that was in Carlisle? I must tell my mum to pop over - she loves Elvis.

  10. Very good. My son in law is a professional photographer and some of his phone stuff is amazing comparedc with years ago.

  11. Don't you just love the way that these beautiful Cathedrals seem to be growing up out of the earth? Great shots Saz...I finally found the manual that came with my phone and no...I cannot download my photos.

  12. IMO, for what its worth, its about the what you use to take the photo its all about how you see it ...good shots all

  13. Saz, I love how you've captured the Fratery - so cool...

    And I adore the bench and find that such a romantic touch, I really do...

    Hope you are well and good... ;) xxooxx

  14. Lovely shots. Your phone takes good pics, it's a beautifully ornate building.

  15. Gosh - this takes me back - I did a University dissertation on Gothic Cathedrals. Love them, but it's been a while since I've visited any...must make a note to get out more...even with small children!!

  16. You've got a bloody good cell phone camera:)

  17. ALL good shots, "true" camera or otherwise. I love old churches, cathedrals, etc. They just grab and hold onto my soul.

  18. Beautiful shots, especially the first one with the amazing light.

  19. Yes, it made a difference but I do love a good sunglare, no matter which camera it's from. Always overwhelmed with what you can see on any given day. Not so much least not in the same order.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...

Tesco - every little helps

Last year I bought myself a new camera online from Tesco. One of those emails arrived in my inbox with a 'deal of the day'  and for me the camera was the dog bollocks, in as much as it had a large 8 mega pixel whatsit .... and a large LCD, and yes I do like things big.. say no more! Oh and it is red! which is almost as good as purple but not quite, like size colour of inanimate objects does matter. It was a great price and the bonus was that it came with a, yes you guessed it, large  memory card. Total cost £74.
It arrived quickly but not with the promised memory card, so I contacted Tesco and they apologised, told me they'd run out and would credit me for the cost of the memory card. I found to my surprise a credit of £36.99 in my bank account, so the camera was only £37! I bought the same memory card from Amazon for a few pounds only, so a  result, thank you Tesco!
A few weeks ago my girlfriend's washing machine broke down in its last month before the 12 month warranty…

What a difference....

a year makes!

It has taken me the better part of the last month, to access my blogs (and Moannie's) as I feared it had alas been removed from the ether. Playing around with passwords and email addresses...I'm in again.

My last post , just 10 months ago...burst my seams, as again I realised how so much has changed!

I'm still,  in my new wee home, with Joey (dog) and Monty (cat).

My lovely son has returned from uni in the USA, attained a First Class degree and started work in London last Autumn as a writer...the world his oyster for the taking! My hero!

My beautiful daughter is in Leeds, amid her Midwifery degree, working at a Brazilian first class restaurant, all loved up with the Spanish Chef.... a meeting is on the cards AND he is taking her to meet his Mama is Spain this summer, so must be serious methinks! So proud!

My hugely supportive brother (TOAOS) is living contently in the Garden of England with his wife and Harry the cutest dog!!

My younger and what a stunner sis…


..and here we are firmly into a new year and I am sitting up wide awake in bed, yet again... I am reflecting upon what was in 2013 and what wasn't.

The 'what wasn'ts ' are left where they are, filed and duly noted, I shall unremember them.

However for the 'what was' ' and that which I choose to bring with me into 2014, are the things that are memorable, enriching, happy and surprising, be them the tiniest fragment of joy or the biggest new thing on the block!

I didn't get off to a great start in January as we had only recently lost Mumma a few months before, the countdown to my son's second year of uni starting mud summer in the States and i was in the middle of a roller-coaster of negotiations trying to secure a business lease and plan for a potential opening. I wasn't at my best and i was running low on fuel.

However as always when faced with a challenge I was defiant and rose to several occasions, decisions with all the positivity I could mus…
