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

Woolly Minded Thinking


That is where I’m at tonight, I’m struggling to string a sentence together never mind write a blog post. Too many meetings, late nights and deadlines have been and gone this week. It’s been a week not without  the odd dose of nonsense, but on the whole satisfactory  progress has been made.

Stick, wool, ice

And the weekend is all mine, all mine.


Sheep searching for food.

I’m in the mood for a tidy up and a clear out, of head and home.


Rabbit tracks

I will be back refreshed and clear minded, after a good nights sleep.

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. Oooohhh…can’t wait to read it! Get some sleep.

  2. It’s strange that you said your mind is wooly, for I just told my husband that my head was fuzzy. I blamed it on the approach of a new weather system, my only explanation since I don’t have any deadlines or meetings today. I wonder if sheep say they’re humanly minded when they’re dealing with an “odd dose of nonsense.” Farmergal

  3. Wait, wait – is that all it takes to cure woolly-mindedness? A good night’s sleep? I have to try this.

  4. Sweet sweet sleep! The patchwork left by the sheep in the snow is wonderful.

  5. Good luck with that!

  6. I’m sure that a weekend that’s all yours will soon set you right! Enjoy! xx

  7. I think the way we live in the western world creates this woolyness.
    We cram in so much that im sure our bodies were not designed for it.

    I mean when you think what we have to Get Done.
    Sometimes its the getting everything done that does it.

    I describe it as the merrygo round stopping.
    My way is to run or cycle. The complete serenity of doing this purifies me.
    Everyone should have a retreat to re charge the batteries.

    Oh that and a bit of sun. To much darkness for me now the snow has gone

  8. I hope that you are thoroughly enjoying your weekend and that the woolly cobwebs have vanished! I’m really enjoying your wonderful photos of patterns in the snow.

  9. Ah, a good night’s sleep – I remember those fondly. Had a couple during the week but alas, back to the insominia again – there’s a whole woollen mill in my brain, aarrgghhhhhh!!
    Words. are. failing. me……..

  10. What gorgeous rural landscapes. It looks like the most beautiful of place!!!

  11. Hey, my head is wooly some nights trying to write a blog and you have just provided inspiration because your simple sentences with your pictures seemed to express SO MUCH. Perhaps we–I mean I–don’t always have to say so much. The simple sentences can do as well, and maybe better than all the words. Thanks, Mrs. Uhdd!
