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

Fluffy Clouds


We got more blue sky and fluffy clouds today than the weather forecasters led us to expect. Not very warm though.

The trees are on the brink of bursting into leaf, but we are there yet.

Yesterday was the Queens 90th birthday, our neighbours got a nice new flag to mark the occasion.

It’s a while since I posted, we’ve been a bit under the weather, Mr Uphilldowndale and I, a strange little virus that seemed to be able to drain every last drop of energy and leave behind achy joints and lethargy. We are on the mend now, but it scuppered our planned trip away in the van last weekend.

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. From my experience, there is a lot of it about as they say. I hope that your recovery continues apace.

  2. I’ll bet misery doesn’t love company either, does it! I hope both of you are back in fine fettle in time for the next van trip. May you have more fluffy clouds AND some nice warm sun.

  3. Sorry to hear you’re also under the weather. It seems to be going about here, too. But the skies are lovely, and that spiffy new flag is striking. I saw some wonderful photos of the Queen. The one where the children were making a run for her, and she reacts with laughing astonishment, is priceless.

  4. It was cold, damp and dull here yesterday but sunny today. I’m sorry to see that you’ve not been too good and hope that you feel better soon. Enjoy the weekend. xx
