Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Where Do I Begin


We are back home after an adventurous week in the Lake District, after retrieving Mr Uhdd from Cockermouth where he found refuge from the atrocious weather that blighted the Original Mountain Marathon, we went on to spend a week in Wasdale, bliss; we’ve had some great weather, no Internet and no mobile phones, it’s done us the power of good. I’ve enough photographs and things I want to post about to last me a month of Sundays.

Today the Lakeland fells were bathed in Sunshine, the highest peaks dusted with snow, the landscape looked delicious, good enough to eat with a spoon,

From Corney Fell, this morning

a stark contrast to last Saturdays weather (McNoddy has pulled together some of the best video clips here)

Many thanks for all your comments and enquires about Mr Uhdd well being; I’m fighting my way through the inbox, (it may have been a mistake on my part to go away, leaving a Google News Alert running on the Original  Mountain Marathon, as I’ve returned to an inbox that  is somewhat over crowded) I can’t see the wood for the trees; add to that the stack of dirty washing that came home with us, the AGA throwing a moody and refusing to be relit and the bread maker blowing an element, it’s back to earth with a bump; I’ll be back in a bit when I’ve sorted myself out.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. I hope your sorting out goes smoothly and well. Sometimes that can be one of the most stressful parts of a return to earth.

    I agree… that landscape looks delicious.

  2. That is a gorgeous landscape. One of these days I truly want to come for a visit to your country.

  3. Yes nice landscape picture uphill. Just a leaking tap and a new sofa required here.
    Oh and the gate needs mending

  4. Good to see that you had a good week. That’s a terrific photo!
    There’s always something like that on returning home! xx

  5. Will you be posting the photos of the hills to Flickr?

  6. I will indeed, there is a bit of supply and demand problem for PC’s at the momment, Joe’s tribe in his on-line ‘Tribal Wars’ game have taken a bit of a hammering whilst we have been away, he needs to regroup!

Come on, join in.
