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



Wishing you all a very happy and healthy New Year. We hope you’ve enjoyed the festive season, Spud the dog has.

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. That photo is hilarious. He looks like he’s just caught his humans slinking in at 4 a.m. with their paper hats all askew! Happy New Year to you all!

  2. Thanks, and for you too. Lovely picture. xx

  3. Spud is still looking impossibly beautiful, the mischief is concealed.
