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

Mind the Gap


What a long gap between posts. There has been so much happening I’m not sure where to start, or stop.

One thing for sure the weather has been glorious,  and the meadow is in its prime.


There have been farewells to say, cards and gifts;  which were almost too pretty to open.

And I’m pleased I wasn’t responsible for picking the best of the bunch out of this lot! All I had to do was mind the tombola.

Eating cake was easy though; it always is. 


Today sees the start of a different way of being for me, whilst I’ve not got idea of how it is all going to pan out; I do know there will be more time to be out and about with the camera, and more time for blogging. I’ve promised myself that.

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. Hopefully #Spud is around with his boundless energy to keep you on the move and bring regularity back to your missed posts!

    Just as I, and most probably many others, set my proverbial clock by Sunday evening posts, wham they ceased………… 😦

    • I’m starting to feel the pressure now Rupert! Yes I’m sure he will be back in the thick of it, the main problem this week has been keeping him out of a large quantity of wet cement!

  2. It all sounds rather exciting and intriguing! xx

  3. My breath is suitably baited.

  4. Do tell! We all need inspiring.

  5. Be your change social, domestic or professional I wish you well and look forward to your increased output.

    I’m trying to decide whether to retire 50, 75 or 100%, the trouble is dog walking, golf, doing up the cottage and the allotment all keep getting in the way of work (is that the right sequence?)

  6. Sounds suspiciously like retirement! If so, I can heartily recommend it!

  7. I can heartily recommend quitting one’s job and seeing what happens. Worked for me
