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

Slip away.


We left  the port of St Margret’s Hope, on Orkney on the early ferry, a short crossing to Gills Bay.

The sea was mercurial, magical.  My kind of sea.

Leaving Orkney 6-1

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.
