I’m introducing a slightly new feature. I don’t usually do ‘themes’, though I like to see other people’s – Monochrome Mondays, Thursday Doors etc. As I’m out and about a lot, and even when I’m in, I’m always captivated by texture, so I have decided to do a series of quick Tuesday posts for a … More Texture Tuesday, on a Sunday
Enough said! All taken by me in February 2018
“‘Half an hour?’ he said, shaking the white flakes from his clothes; ‘I wonder you should select the thick of a snow-storm to ramble about in. Do you know you run the risk of being lost in the marshes? People familiar with these moors often miss their road on such evenings, and, I can tell … More My ways and By-ways – Rambling about in a snow-storm
…walking in a winter wonderland. It certainly was. My friend and I spent Monday on Ogden Moor above Halifax. 7 hours and 12.5 miles later we made it back to the car after battling blizzards, mud and an unknown footpath. In a couple of days I will post our little adventure.
What are the chances? A random little yomp* through the wood on Wednesday and I saw two things I don’t usually see which looked similar enough for my silly sense of humour to want to post them together.

I am a road surfacer’s daughter: I can detect hot asphalt from several streets away, understand the gravel-truck’s slope and spread, and why the lads rake out steaming tarmac flush to the kerb as if tucking in a sticky bed. And I know how it feels to stand on a solid surface, to jump up … More Scribblings – I am a Road Surfacer’s Daughter
Cabin fever! I know there’s lots of stuff to do around the house, but sometimes being stuck inside for more than a day and I really do start to get proper twitchy. If you are used to following my random ramblings, photos and mis-adventures, you will already know that I love to get outside, even … More My ways and By-ways – Squelch
After all the doubt about seeing the January Blue moon in Super form due to clouds, I’ve done reasonably well, considering. Here’s my final image. I took this on the evening of Thursday 1 Feb, so not really blue any more and just coming off full. I just happened to notice it out of the … More Farewell to Superblue
Having eagerly awaited the lunar event of the year, the Super blue blood moon, it was a bit of a party pooper. For a start, the blood bit, the eclipse, would probably not be visible from Northern England. For another thing, our less than lovely weather has probably ensured thick cloud cover. And to cap … More Super Blue, but no Blood
Sunday morning, our second and last full day in Paris. We had a better night’s sleep – no fire alarms went off, but I think someone has been smoking in their room, we can smell it in the corridor! We are dropped off in the Eiffel Tower car park so we can explore this side … More Jill’s Jaunts – Paris in the Winter pt 2
