Spud on Sunday Part LXIX


Oh dear, it seems a week has passed and it is down to Spud (yet again) to hold the blog together.  Everyone’s been busy, boys have needed tending and transporting, work to be done, projects to be jollied along, you know the stuff.

Spud has had to wait patiently, as patiently as a Springer can, in that quivering sort of way; for some of his many tennis ball to be retrieved from the barn roof yet again.

It has been glorious here for the last couple of days, I want to get out to play and I’m  feeling as impatient as Spud.

Monday morning edit.

I thought it was unusual none of Spuds  loyal fan club had dropped by last night and left a ‘like’ or a comment; Mr Uphilldowndale pointed out that was  probably because I hadn’t published anything and that this post was still sat on my computer in draft form.  I need a holiday.

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. Happy Monday and welcome back Spud. Coffee and I missed you.

  2. Irresponsible old age has many consolations.

  3. The look on his face as he waits is priceless!

  4. Lovely shot of Spud, as usual, but particularly impressive is the grass he’s sitting on. Thick, green and even. Do you have Green Thumb look after it?

  5. Rather like when I get out the wire “getter-out-from-underer” and retrieve all the cat toys from under the furniture. It’s like deja vu all over again.

  6. Well worth the wait! xx

  7. Oh, he certainly wanted to go up that ladder and get those tennis balls himself-I can tell! You are much greener there than here.

  8. That expression on Spud’s face? That exactly matched the expression on mine as I waited in vain for Sunday to arrive. I finally gave up entirely and went looking for a different day of the week to play with.

Come on, join in.
