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

The Recession Deepens


Well it amused me. Briefly. A sign for sale today in a store in York.


Recession price cuts

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. Brilliant! The fact it has 20% off, even more so!

  2. It’s not the recession that worries me, it’s the fact that nothing is being down to reduce the amount of tick both the population and the banks and the country are still sitting on. Still, your picture gave me a cheerful smile in the midst of my characteristic gloom.

  3. Or done as I should have said.

  4. This makes me nostalgic for the days when I could turn on the TV and watch CBC news, where there was always (1) useful coverage of the wide world, much of it in partnership with the BBC (2) a bracingly different perspective on my own country’s peculiarities and (3) reassurance that idiotic behavior knows no boundaries.

    Where there’s rueful laughter there’s hope.

  5. Some folk can always manage to see the funny side of life, even in desperate times…..and that’s no bad thing….

  6. It made me smile. I’d like one which says ‘Keep Calm and Carry on Plotting’ for the allotment. xx
