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

The Further Adventures of Spud the Dog, 21st December 2013


Why would you want an adventure on an afternoon like this?  Especially when there is a sofa to be had.


home sweet home


The picture is by Derbyshire artist, Clare Allen. Clare does wonderful landscapes (and cityscapes, check out her Manchester exhibition review). She also does a fine line in drawing particularly fine pubs, that are to be recommended

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. Fellow sofa flyers I see! I like the header picture, and thanks for the links which I will look at later.
    Have yourselves a good Christmas. xx

  2. I can see why you like the artist.

  3. I was wondering if you’d drawn the header picture yourself! It’s a good life for those two, isn’t it? Maybe if there’s such a thing as reincarnation . . . .

  4. What wonderful pictures! ~ the one on the wall and the two on the sofa 😉 Looks like the two of them have the right idea. Hope your weather isn’t too crazy for Christmas and that you are able to spend a lovely Christmas together. Merry Christmas Spud and crew!

  5. Life is hard. Then you nap.

  6. Have a great Christmas …
