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

Turning water into snow

We zipped over to Bangor in Wales to visit Tom yesterday. Spud  the dog came too, of course. 

Tom is the epitome of the hungry student, so we took him for a suitably large fry-up at Pete’s Eats in Llanberis, before  a stroll by the lake it was a damper day than the weather forecast would have us believe.

Tom told us the autumn colours have been very vibrant, and even after a spell of stormy weather, there are leaves still to be found, there is a bit of of a chocolate lime vibe going on here.  .

Of course you can’t get such lush moss without a water laden climate

So we don’t mind the rain too much, that said it was less fun on the M56 on the way home during the rush hour.

Today the temperature has dropped like a stone, it has been so wet and gloomy the chickens retreated to their run by about two thirty.  Tonight we expect the first snowflakes of the season. Watch this space.

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. They have been talking about snow for us but I don’t believe them.

  2. When my youngest brother was a hungry student, and I was a trading standards officer in the area of his uni, he was always very pleased to ‘destroy’ the out of date food I was obliged to seize in the course of my duties.

    On one occasion I recall he was obliged to ‘destroy’ several cases of toast toppers (tins of mashed anonymous animal and herbs) that were three or fours out of date !!!!

  3. Three or four years

  4. Such a beautiful place, your images are so vibrant. Our weather dropped too, it is horribly cold with the same forecast…here we go, winter.

  5. Lovely pictures. There was some sleety snow for a short while here yesterday morning which thankfully didn’t settle. xx
