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

Girls Weekend


I’m off, to Wales, St Davids I’m meeting up with my friend Mrs Ogg, we are going to have a arty, photographic, creative sort of time and there is just a possibility we might go to the pub. We both like messing around with our cameras,  look we’ve both got the same camera*

Mrs Ogg Salcombe-1

this duplication will probably mean that each of us will expect the other to have brought a battery charger for the camera, and neither of us will!

Mrs Ogg is also very nifty with paint and pencils, we will have to  see it she will let me share some of her images. I’ve packed the fridge full of goodies**  for my men folk and I’m off;  in my absence Mr Uphilldowndale will be posting about his adventures of last week. Enjoy, we will.

* Same camera different look, Mrs Ogg’s camera is sleek silver machine mine is factory fitted black.

**  As far as food goes, Mrs Ogg and I are packing nought but, tea, milk and wine, we’ll make the rest up as we go along.

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 notice we both have each other on our blogroll – I know I comment here when I can – but do you ever comment on my blog?

  2. Lucky you, try and fit in a seal watching rib trip ’round Bardsey Island. Wear good waterproofs though!

    • I think you mean Ramsey Island. Tom and I had a very pleasant trip round there a few years ago, admiring the seals and abundant birdlife.

      Now then, Bardsey? I know Bardsey Sound very well from the Three Peaks Yacht Race. We always arrive there with an adverse tide and so have to fight our way through, close in to the rocks along with the rest of the fleet – very exciting sailing.

  3. Loved what part of Wales I saw on my trip. Can’t wait to see photos the two of you take. Enjoy!

  4. Have a good weekend! xx

  5. Yes, looking forward to the photos when you get back. It’s a beautiful part of the world, although it would be good if the weather was better than it is here right now. However, it’s unlikely that you’ll leave behind all this cloud, wind and rain by going to Wales!

  6. Adam Buick’s Pottery studio is in the neighborhood. You should stop by. Some gorgeous scenery out by him.

  7. You cannot imagine how the very phrase “I’m off to Wales” awakens my imagination. Such an astonishing world, such a short life. And to have a reliable person in charge of business while you’re gone! Now that is a treat. Oh dear. He looks as if he might have just the least little bit of mischief in mind–or maybe that’s just Spud.

  8. Hope you have a wonderful well-deserved break from routine and just lots of jolly fun! Off to Wales, with you then! 🙂
