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

On Christmas Day


Happy Christmas dear blog buddies, wishing you good health, peace and  happiness for 2013. The uphilldowndales are still here, all is well, but a little exhausting, but once we’ve recovered from the gluttony of Christmas day, blogging service will resume to something  that resembles  my idea of normality.

Normality is looking very attractive. Spud the dog sends his love.

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.

  2. Merry Christmas and the best new year that you could wish.

  3. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas season ~ and Happy Boxing Day, today! I’m sure your boys had great fun, and what did Spud get for Christmas? Did the kitties behave themselves or get into all sorts of mischief? Did you have a white Christmas? We had a few large magical flakes and then they all drifted away 🙂

  4. Many thanks, and to you too! xx
