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

And so to work…


Back to work tomorrow. I have a beautiful commute.

Late for work, again

It’s 14 years since I worked in retail, but the novelty of being able to have a long break at Christmas and New Year has still not worn off.

Tomorrow I think an extra layer of clothing may be in order, our office can be chilly on a summers day. Two weeks of the office heating ticking over on thrifty frost setting, may mean there is an unseemly dash for the fan heater, first thing. Lets call it an office huddle, we can at least try and look like we are back in harness.

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. Ah work…..I remember that. Happy new year. I hope that you can find some time for photographs.

  2. That’s one beautiful photo. I’m going to take my camera to work with me tomorrow. There’s an osprey that’s been hanging around atop the masts at the marina, and I surely would like to get a photo of him. No need for sweaters, though. We’re still waiting for a cool front, and it’s as mild and pretty as can be.

    I’m rather happy to be back in harness, myself. With everyone back to their offices, my “office” will be empty again: just the way I like it.

  3. Wonderful picture. I hope that the office isn’t too chilly. xx

  4. Happy New Year! Love the huddle concept, not sure if it would work with 6 goats 🙂
