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

Mothering Sunday



Not just the fourth Sunday in Lent, but any day will do me.

When I came to my PC late one night last week, I found Joe had stopped by on his way to bed and left me a message on the screen.


I Love You MUM





Cute eh?

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. Aaaaw, that’s so sweet.

  2. Ah, I remember when Rob the Firefighter was young and loved his Mom in just that way. It’s a fine thing to be loved so. When they grow up it all gets more complicated. The love is there, of course, but all entwined with exasperation and the busy untying of apron strings. Then the new understanding, as their lives, and ours, progress through the stages that come to us all. The love of adult children is a mysterious and complex vintage indeed. But then it all comes ’round again. Now, years after my mother’s death, “I love you Mom” – with a heart and a smilie.

  3. Oh..you’ve gotta keep this one. Put it up as your screen saver..something. Too precious..and too sweet!!!

  4. I bet that made you smile! It’ll be a paw mark and a smiley with floppy ears next from you know who! xx

  5. i love how the kids always close with “from”. i used to get letters from my son at camp and he would always sign them “from your son alex” just in case i didn’t remember him. lol.

  6. Very special, indeed ~ and a belated Happy Mothers Day 🙂
