What this blog is about
This month I get a bus pass. “So what” you may ask. So I get to travel around Merseyside free (off-peak, of course). One of my ambitions is to take advantage of this and get out and about a lot more.
It may seem strange to start a new blog when I already have so many but I am really just aiming to rationalise them a bit. My Pensby Blog will now be primarily about my garden and its wildlife visitors.
Although I have given The Wirral the main spot in the title I will branch out into the rest of Merseyside as and when I get the chance. Merseyside is divided into five districts – Wirral, Liverpool, Knowsley, St Helens, and Sefton. Each post that I do will have the name of the district at the end of its title. However, the Wirral postings will not be confined to the Wirral Borough Council area. Rather, they will cover the whole of the Wirral Peninsula.
Thanks for stopping by! Would you like a cup of tea or coffee? And please, sit for a spell. If you enjoy my posts, please feel free to follow me or subscribe to my blog. This is a word verification free, family friendly blog, so everything I share here is for all ages. I am a happily married man in my late sixties who lives on the Wirral peninsula, near Liverpool, in the UK.
I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.
