Moving On Slowly

We’ve been away, to Ireland, we’ve been driving the Wild Atlantic Way (well part of it, its a long route, and there is a lot to see). The first thing to do  in Ireland, is  to slow down, there is no need to go anywhere in a hurry.

As the farmer said ‘Cows only have one gear’. (Unless of course they are ‘knocked out of gear’, then anything is possible and usually unstoppable).

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. I am glad to see that the cows seem to have good brake lights.

  2. I know just a bit about cows, but I must say I’ve never seen a breed with those pink — uh — whatevers. Is that a mark like a brand, or part of the cows’ anatomy?

  3. Cows have two gears, slow when they want it andvery fast when they are after you if you have a small dog and they have calves. Very deceptive and much more dangerous than they look, which is quite cool, James Bond take note.
