Happy Christmas


From all the Uphilldowndales, and especially Spud

Who just loves a nice bit of wrapping paper. He’d also like my nomnom chocolate a present from Tom, but he’s not having it.

Wishing you peace, health* and happiness.


*judging by how many  search hits I’ve had this last week looking for ‘Mr Muscle sore throat’ I’m hoping those who have cleaned their ovens in preparation for Christmas dinner, are well enough to enjoy their turkey…

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. Wishing you a relaxing and merry Christmas.

  2. Give Spud my good wishes please.

  3. Hope you had a great Christmas Day ~ and now you’ll be in the midst of Boxing Day Evening! What did Spud get for Christmas ~ hope he received an abundance of tennis balls…

    Did the weather co-operate?

  4. I see Spud is also a fan of wrapping paper (like my Nino) and I hope he got plenty.
    Wishing you and your family a Very Happy New Year.
