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

Indoors if Wet


It would be very nice to be out and about,

indoors if wet -1

after all, ‘Operation Cosy Christmas’ is a wrap, and whilst it got a bit fraught at times, getting everything done (Joe reupholstered six dining chairs on Christmas eve, he’s the fastest teenager in the north west with a staple gun)  we did it, and had lovely time. Now our guests have gone, all is quiet and still; it would be a good time to be out and about, mooching around with the camera, but it is just so, so, wet. So I’m pottering around with the blog instead, a new look and a review of the links in the side bar to follow. WordPress tell me my chosen new theme can morph itself to suit what ever device you chose to read this blog on, phone, PC, tablet etc, let me know how it shapes up especially if it is not delivering the goods.

It is not a bad place to be spending the darkest (I hope) of the winter days. Warm and cosy and in good company.

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. don’t know about tablets or phones, it seems a bit skittery on my laptop! Fantastic header picture though

  2. Okey dokey in the Middle East on a laptop.

    Have a superb 2013

  3. Your wordpress site looks great to me 🙂 Glad to hear that Christmas was comfy and cozy, and can well imagine the activity surrounding reupholstering dining room chairs before the arrival of guests! Good for him! Sorry to hear it continues to be so wet there ~ it can be quite disheartening to say the least when everything is literally bogged down. Hopefully soon, the sun and the camera will be out and about! Here’s to a terrific 2013!

  4. All looks good to me! xx

  5. All looks good on the tablet. We’re now in “post Christmas return to normality” mode before tomorrow night. Then the party begins again!

  6. You have my greatest sympathy as to the weather. It really is discouraging. I am looking forward to some of your fine landscapes in the new year should the rain ever relent.

  7. Love your new masthead photograph. Beautiful!
