Spud on Sunday Part LXXIV


Spud thinks this decorating lark is so boring… It is in his opinion, about as exciting as watching paint dry.

And for Glo, proof that Spud does indeed like to get down amongst the soot and ashes,

Spud looking fro charcoal -1

Glo penned a verse on yesterdays post

Heather had a little dog
Its fur was black as soot
And everywhere that Spudsy went
Its sooty foot he put.

Spud has a bit of a thing for finding bits of charcoal amongst the ashes, which he chomps on the carpet if he gets a chance. Well he would if we had any carpet down; boring.

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. Finding charcoal chunks is undoubtedly easier for Spud than finding that green ball in the green grass (is it still AWOL?) Love Glo’s poem, too! 🙂

  2. I agree with Spud about decorating, and I love Glo’s poem. xx

  3. Look at Spud’s sweet expression! Thanks for the mention 🙂 Good luck with the decorating ~ although it has its boring elements and the process is hard work…the results will be terrific, I’m sure. Spud must wonder what the heck is going on! Perhaps he was hoping the charcoal was a tennis ball in disguise ~

  4. Glo’s poem is excellent and Spud is especially handsome and I am envious of anyone who has arrived at the redecorating part. I am in the throes of the shoring-up part and it is not pretty. When Spud chews on the charcoal does it sweeten his breath? I only ask because I have seen dog biscuits with charcoal in them and they promise to do just that. Miss Sadie and I are curious because, well, you know.
