There's a tame seagull on the prom at Cleveleys, who was christened Homer by one of the residents who started feeding him some time ago. He lives on a chimney pot on the houses behind the promenade, and rears his chicks there each year. Homer is a cheeky ...

Oh I do hope it's a nice summer!
I'm an optimistic little poppet, so I'm going to stick to my theory that a cold winter like this one is the forerunner of a long, hot summer (and pigs may, I suppose, fly!). I'm dreaming of long walks on the beach and sitting in the sun (wh ...

Oops! Baby had a fall!
You'll get to know Homer the seagull and Baby quite well before I've finished!
I've been buying dog food for the birds while the weather has been so bad, and Baby has been coming to the end of the trellis outside our back doo ...

Baby's come back!
It looks like I've been forgiven, or at least the lure of Asda's finest 45p chopped up dead horse meat is too much to resist! It must be a week since Baby climbed on the plate and came crashing down to earth, and he's been back si ...

Cleveleys hits the press
One of my many tasks is writing a fairly regular page for the Northern Life magazine. It's a really good magazine, with lots of down to earth articles, so as you can imagine, my writing fits in well. The last one was in the Dec/Jan edition, which I ...

In the words of U2, 'It's a beautiful day'
'Don't let it slip away....' The weather has been really nice here for a few days now, all bar a snow flurry early on Sunday morning that quickly disappeared. We seem to have our own little microclimate at Cleveleys, and while the rest of t ...

Bob the Builder lives at Cleveleys....
I'd already made mention earlier this month about the work that's started on the Groyne at the side of the cafe on North Promenade. Work is coming on quite quickly and the pile of rocks is getting quite tall, and it certainly makes the beach lo ...
