Rain on a Sunday afternoon

Sunday 20th November 2022, 4.45pm (day 4,105)

Sunday rain, 20/11/22

It’s that time of year when everyone looked outside at a particular point and said to each other — is it really only a quarter to five? We won’t be seeing daylight at that time again until about February. The rain was added atmosphere, but it is still needed. I like the ‘eye’ effect suggested by the lamp.

Sunday, Calder Holmes Park

Sunday 16th October 2022, 12.25pm (day 4,070)

Hollins Holme FC, 16/10/22

Tried to get on a train today to go somewhere other than home, but when it turned up 20 minutes late and dangerously overcrowded, I remembered, only then, that Manchester United were at home (not to mention Leeds and Liverpool), and the hourly Sunday service was really not up to the job. I therefore returned home: but there were things to see on Calder Holmes Park that were just as interesting as what I might have encountered elsewhere. So the bad planning (mine, and the train company’s) didn’t matter in the end.

Dog karaoke?

Sunday 2nd October 2022, 3.45pm (day 4,056)

Dog karaoke, 2/10/22

I have been looking at this sign for some months now, but only today really understood the implications. I’ve seen dog ice cream for sale, and in the Arndale centre in Manchester there is now a whole stall selling little doggy cakes and pastries. But dog karaoke? Methinks we are starting to pamper our little pooches just that little bit too much. Although I doubt the singing would be appreciably worse.

The Astleys, above Sowerby Bridge

Sunday 18th September 2022, 11.00am (day 4,042)

The Astleys, 18/9/22

Flat land is at a premium in the valley, so round here, the recreation grounds are built high up: as with the Astleys, a set of one cricket and three football pitches above Sowerby Bridge. There are worse things to do on a Sunday morning.

Day of rest

Sunday 31st July 2022, 4.30pm (day 3,993)

Love shack nap, 31/7/22

It is, perhaps, a little early to be taking a nap, but it was Sunday, after all. We’ve all been there.

Time to leave the room (Karaoke Guy)

Sunday 3rd April 2022, 4.35pm (day 3,874)

Karaoke guy, 3/4/22

It’s Sunday afternoon in the Railway. Meaning, it’s Karaoke Afternoon. This is a regular Sunday thing, like church. And the singing is no better. The arrival of the m.c. — here, about to start his set-up — is a sign to head to a different part of the building, out of earshot.

Coven

Sunday 6th March 2022, 11.50am (day 3,846)

White witches, 6/3/22

This is definitely a coven of like-minded females, and they’re plotting something. But I’m confident that they’re of the white persuasion, somehow. It’s the hair that gives away their shared allegiance.

Spectator accommodation, Sunday morning

Sunday 9th May 2021, 10.45am (day 3,545)

Social distancing not a problem at Sabden FC of the Pendle Charity Sunday League. Actually there were about 30 people watching, and presumably most of them went home happy enough after their morning’s entertainment as the home team won 9-0. The main stand of the Nutter Barn ground is, endearingly, made from a recycled bus shelter. The photographer’s bag makes an appearance to bottom left.

Easter Sunday in the park

Sunday 4th April 2021, 12.25pm (day 3,510)

Easter Sunday park, 4/4/21

The world — well, Hebden Bridge anyway — is getting back to it, and in these developments I can see nothing but good. We should be able to give our money to a few more retailers that have been unlucky (or unpolitically active) enough to be classed as ‘inessential’, but more important is that people are just coming out anyway.

Enjoying the Sunday

Sunday 21st March 2021, 11.05am (day 3,496)

Busy Sunday, 21/3/21

Every recent Sunday in the town centre has been busy and today was no exception. And the only commentary I would like to add to this observation is that I consider this a good thing.
