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

Walk to Work



One man and his dog

Another beautiful day, I had to go to a meeting in the next village, I walked there and back. So a 90 minute meeting took up the best part of the morning, I did dally a bit on the way though.

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’m going to guess that the walk WAS the best part of the morning! When it’s cold I always have a hard time getting myself out the door, even with a sharp push from Miss Sadie and the Cowboy, but I’m always glad once I get going.

    • The reason I decided to walk was the fact that I’ve been feeling very lethargic and unmotivated (about things that have to be attended too; funnily enough, photos and blogging have escaped this malaise) a winter low rather than full blown blues I think. I thought the walk would be a tonic and had the added advantage, that I didn’t need to look at the pile of work or the messy house. It must have worked because I’ve just found a document, that has been ‘missing presumed dead’ for weeks. I’s just as well as it has a deadline of 31st of January (and it’s not a tax return.) all I’ve got to do now is collate the info to complete it …. hummpppffff, I’ll need a longer walk tomorrow

  2. That is a wonderful, nicely composed capture. Looks like you had a beautiful day for a walk.

  3. That image has a nice timeless look! xx

  4. I envy being close enough to walk to a business meeting. You captured a nice moment on a winter’s day.

  5. It looks like a wonderful place and a great day for dallying. 🙂

  6. Well done on the walk uphill, good picture as well.
    Ive hit the wall again with this dark winter thing and was too unmotivated to even run tonight but my dog gave me that look and we managed 8 solitary boggy, hard miles over the hills. Sorry I missed Mr Uhdds birthday.
    Anyway yes go for that long walk. Im taking 3 days off work as i know its the only solution.

  7. Hey LBR, how about getting out high on the hills with me on Sunday. You know it makes sense!

  8. That picture would look great above my fireplace, wish I could take a photo like that, wish I had the scenery within walking distance to give it a go. Ho hum.

  9. Sorry Mr Uhdd , just got back from Dublin and I need a rest im shattered. Thanks for the offer though. Back to normal training next week i hope. Normally it starts to ease by now ( end of jan ). Did 10mles earlier and the sun was going down and it felt great.
    If i could wish for one thing it would be that British summertime would last forever. Still the corner is turned now.

Come on, join in.
