Spud on Sunday Part LXIXII


Spud the dog has been in high glee today, its a dream come true*

Man and digger has arrived to sort our drains… Oh joy!

For Spud the dog this means the biggest mole hill to dig in that a dog could wish for.

It is going to mean mud everywhere, of that I’m sure.

Mind you, you may notice sheep in the field at moment, if the pile of top soil distracts Spud from rolling in sheep poo, it’s no bad thing, top soil smell sweeter.

*It’s a dream come true for us too, we’ve been expecting arrival of  man and digger since spring!

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. Mrs UHDD: “Spud, there appears to be a big hole in the field.”
    Spud: “Okay, I’ll look into it”

    I’ll get me coat….

  2. It’s great to see Spud back and on top form by the look of what I can of him. Looks and sounds like lots of good ‘fun’ all round! xx
