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

Home and Dry


I’ve had a lovely, if damp weekend away in the Lake District with my friend Mrs Ogg.

I came home to a warm house, the ground source heat pump is up and running (insert three cheers) the Queen has one you know


I’ll be along later with Lakeland photos, but for now another image from our forest walk with Tom

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. I am really pleased that the heat pump is working. The more of these things put in, the less need for Chinese nuclear power stations and fracking.

  2. Those of who live in flats and in suburbia would welcome fracking, thank you very much.

  3. Congratulations on your GHP ~ a warm welcome home! Pleased to hear you had a lovely time with Mrs. Ogg. Looking forward to pictures!

  4. Good to see that you enjoyed your weekend even thought it was damp. I imagine that you were smiling when you got back to find a warm house. Lovely photo. xx
