IMG_2145This is a subject close to my heart, I grew up in Kirton, and remember every year as a child going to “help” the workmen putting up the lights while my mum did her Saturday job at a shop in the town square.

Back then they were “proper lights” – you know what I mean, the sort with real bulbs in that you could shoot out with an air-riffle, none of this tacky eco-friendly low voltage bullshit we have to put up with today. My favourite was always the Christmas bells which hung above the butcher’s shop and “flashed” (well the bells would alternate) but this was  the centre piece.

I also remember the Christmas tree being a lot bigger too… 😉

Anyway, enough sentimental nonsense, here’s all I took tonight, drop me a comment if you want copies. (more…)


Located between Scunthorpe and Kirton in Lindsey, Twigmoor woods is packed full of Rhododendrons which in early June look their best.

Julie, Saffie and my self took the Nifty Fifty out for a few photographs one busy Saturday afternoon
