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

How old?


Nine years today, since my first post. Which seems pretty amazing to me.  As does this view, it’s Newborough beach on Anglesey, we’ve visited here a few times; whilst Tom has been studying at Bangor university, not so very far away. He’d have been twelve when I started blogging. He handed in his dissertation last week and has only a couple of exams left to sit.

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.

  8. I remember you when you were only three (https://torchlakeviews.wordpress.com/2010/05/16/playing-with-fire-also-stones-and-water/) and hope to find you here for a good while yet. It is astonishing how much can happen in a person’s life in nine years, especially when a person has children. Congratulations on negotiating both uphill and downdale with such grace and humor. It’s been a pleasure to walk with you.
