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

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. Now, see, Californians cannot understand why anyone would go to the beach in overcoat-and-hot-tea weather (which they define as anything below 75 degrees F., but I digress). But look at all those sturdy northerners basking in what, if memory serves, is sunshine! I long to be there, patting the merry-go-round ponies as a fresh breeze whooshes across the waves.

  2. No they are not Northerners, unless they are on holiday.

    They are Southerners.

    But remember Mad Dogs and Englishment Go Out in the Midday Sun.

    Potty we are.

    I just love this blog.

  3. Those carousel horses look remarkably well preserved. Almost brand new. Likewise the row of Georgian houses, all uniformly painted in the same shade of blue. So tidy. And no mud!

  4. Weymouth looks positively summery compared with the wet,grey days we are currently having up here in the north. I haven’t been to Weymouth, it looks rather nice and old-fashioned and worth a visit. I love those decorative tiles on the wall.
