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

In The Round


That post Christmas, over stuffed, lethargic sort of feeling, perfectly captured by a pair of rotund terriers, staked out in the market place, presumably whilst their owners were restocking vittels in the Co-op.

Tubby little chaps-1

If I’d taken a pin to them they would have popped like balloons and whizzed off over the parish church out to the hills.

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. Oh how cute. Wonderful feeling of being there in the scene. I’m afraid I have a large black cat who could swallow them whole. He needs to be on a diet, though.

  2. I hate to see dogs tied up outside shops – or anywhere else for that matter. It is very selfish behaviour on the part of the owners that leaves the dogs at the mercy of any thief or sadist who happens to pass by. I would like to handcuff their owners to a lamppost and see how they like it.

    If you can’t keep your dog with you while you are out then you don’t deserve to own a dog.

  3. I can picture terriers deflating as they whirl around thanks to your description. Probably would feel a lot better after too! All the best to you and your family, including Spud of course, in the coming year ~~ 2012!

  4. I know that feeling…….
