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

The Day Ahead


When I came down to my desk this morning I could see across the valley, all blue skies and Spring loveliness, then, just as Mr Uphilldowndale rolled out on his bike to ride to work, the mist rolled in.

The Day Ahead -1

Now I can’t see much further than across the lane.

The Day Ahead 2-1


Author: uphilldowndale

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. See that line about the mist rolling in – now I have a certain (very cheesy) McCartney song in my head.

  2. how’s his knee BTW? Hasn’t put him off cycling, clearly!

    • The knee has come along very well thank you. The fall hasn’t put me off cycling at all – I’m just a bit more careful with potentially slippery surfaces. The finger I dislocated is still a bit swollen, but I’ve finally been discharged (a couple of weeks ago) by the physio, and I’m not feeling any after-effects of the clot in my leg. All in all I think I’ve come off pretty lightly!

  3. I hope that it cleared and was a nice day. It was a bit misty here early this morning. xx

  4. Um, I trust you both found your way back through the swirling mystery? (I read far too many Agatha Christie stories when I was in my formative years. What were my parents thinking?)
