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

Where’ve You Been?

Apologies for my absence, many things have been happening around here. Including a game akin to ‘musical chairs’ with computers, it all started with an upgrade to the photo editing software I use for my images, Lightroom: only to find my laptop had not the brain to cope with such a new fangled thing.

Fortunately Mr Uphildowndale is  a bit nifty at sorting such matters. I write this post at his desk, where his computer is linked to  both my old laptop and what was Tom’s laptop (soon to be mine, Tom gets a new one ready for his studies) and it is humming away shifting ‘stuff’ from one place to another. It’s all beyond me.  All I know is it may take some time.


What was simpler and swifter to action was the move of my RSS feed from Google Reader to WordPress, that was a breeze and I managed it all on my own.  I’d been rather tardy at bothering to seek out Google Reader of late, it was a bit of a faff,  I can now see that with all my favourite blogs in one place there is a much better chance of keeping up with things and catching up with old friends.  Talk soon.

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.

One thought on “Where’ve You Been?

  1. Hope the cataloging all goes well in the Lightroom move.
    As for the whole reader thing, I’d been using one, but then it seemed to give up on me…as well it should. I don’t know when the last time I had restarted my computer was, but that did the trick – keeping up again 😉
