Spud on Sunday Part XXXVI


Restricted Access

Spud has had his playground restricted, as there are 90 sheep grazing in his field

Spud and gate-1

It’s not that he’d trouble them, but he would spook them, and 90 sheep stampeding down a steep field with a drystone wall at the bottom is not a good idea, it has the makings of an expensive disaster and a lot of rebuilding of walls. They are only going to be with us for a couple of weeks, lot of sheep  for a short sharp munch of the meadow and then they will be off to pastures new. Spud will just have to wait patiently.

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. A lovely pose by the wonderful Spud! xx

  2. Spud will find endless ways to amuse himself for the duration.

  3. Do the sheep come to stay regularly? Why did they need to come this time? I’m intrigued.

  4. Ohhh, yeeessss, sure he will…….he looks as though he is soooo patient! 🙂

  5. Presumably the sheep are better than a lawn mower?

Come on, join in.
