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

Following Like Sheep



There isn’t much to do in the countryside

Ladies who lunch

People have to seek out their own entertainment (this clip is shamelessly copied from  Arcadian Advocate.)

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 saw this clip over on Maureen’s Brilliant Britain blog a couple weeks ago and think that it’s brilliant! xx

  2. I saw this over at Nature Network earlier this week, and thought it was the best thing EVAH!

  3. One of our Family ‘quotes’, a visitor to the farm said “Don’t you get bored? Nothing ever happens in the country..”
    No, other than; animals breaking out, animals breaking in, children (mainly me) falling in the beck, out of trees, into the midden, fences falling down, being pushed down by the animals mentioned above, being washed away, animals giving birth, failing to give birth, having twins, getting into the hay shed, escaping from the byre, kicking the milking bucket over the milker (We hand milked!!), standing on the milkers foot, startling grandma by appearing at the front door and mooing, loudly.

    Nah, nothing much happened….

    I recommend “Milk My Ewes and Weep” Make my mum rich…..Please?

  4. We’re still laughing now…
