Spud on a Sunday part VIII


Yes we know it’s Monday, but there you go; some of us have been relaxing.

Spud has been out in this mornings sleety rain, which is rather unpleasant and has left the stone flags glazed with ice and treacherous (it didn’t seem to bother Spud though, it must be easier with a leg at each corner).

Spud is waiting for the  forecasted snow to arrive

What more snow--1

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. Well technically it was Boxing Day yesterday, so we can call this Sunday and Spud’s face is a picture.

    We had flurries yesterday and when we looked at the news and saw what was hitting New York, oh dear two more days and it is us, if the past years are anything to go by.

  2. Do take care if you take Spud on a road which has been gritted – the grit contains chemicals not good for paws – so before he starts licking do give his paws a wash! Merry Christmas!

  3. Your blog is very entertaining and has distracted me from the very serious business of list writing. Do you have a subscribe by email widget that I could click? I always need distractions.

    • Hi there and welcome! I’d best go and see if I can find one!
      I think if you were logged into your WordPress account you’d be able to follow this and any other WordPress blog from the tool bar, just click on the ‘subscribe’ button and view all your favourite blogs and then read from the tool bar in ‘My Account’- ‘Read My Subscriptions’. The other bonus to viewing through your WordPress dashboard, is when you leave a comment it will link back to your blog, Kitchinsink

  4. Is it not Sunday? I have totally lost track of what day it is – going back to work on Wednesday is going to be a right shock to the system!

    I love ‘Spud in the snow’ pictures, but for all our sakes, let there not be the opportunity for too many new ones! I want to see pavements again.

  5. What a stoic face he has.

    Is there a way to turn off the “snow” on the blog?

    • Can I turn off the snow? Yes If I can find the switch!! I’ve seen enough of the stuff. WordPress will turn it off automatically on the ’12 the night’

      • Thanks Mrs. UHDD. I don’t want to deprive anybody of digital snow, but it’s easier to appreciate the pictures without little white dots flying across them.

  6. What an expressive face he has!

  7. Looks as though he’s been interrupted from his digging. What is down there under all of the snow, anyway? I think I’ve forgotten.

  8. Spud is living in just the right place, developing his special talents to their fullest. No wonder he’s a happy dog.

  9. I wonder what Spud will think when the snow disappears? (if it ever does;)) He certainly seems to be in his element! The sunrise was spectacular on your previous post, with the additional ‘picture’ of you tromping out into the cold morning dressed just so! Also the picture you painted of your home at Christmas all decorated with bicycle parts etc. has left me with feelings of sharing your delightfully ‘real’ life! All the best to you all in the coming year!

  10. I’ve completely lost track of which day it is! It looks like Spud is wearing ear muffs!
    The icy snow has all but gone here as temperatures have risen and it’s been raining. xx
