Relax……. nearly Time for Action

Herdwick-Ram

The Herdwick Ram …. A Handsome Fellow

Looking all relaxed and ready to go.   It will soon be time for the Ram to be let loose with the flock of Herdwick Sheep.  Herdwicks are a hardy mountain sheep, still the popular breed of choice in the Lake District.  Their thick fleeces give protection from all but the severest weathers.  Tough as they are, their faces for me show a softness of  character.

Summer is coming to a close….

COTSWOLDS

Summer over the Cotswolds

The last day of August…so summer will now move into autumn.  Gently we hope, or maybe we could be fortunate and  enjoy an Indian summer. 

Soon, familiar country-scape’s of  lush fields of ripened crops, golden and  ready for harvest will vanish till next year.  As for the weather, well farmers will still be praying for dry weather whilst they complete the years harvest.

Market Day…

Shropshire

Market Day…….  slowly some of the activities we all took for granted are getting back to normal…..maybe not the normal we knew and took for granted, but what is now referred to as the ‘new norm’.  Trouble is the boundaries of the new norm seem to change quickly and frequently….nor that user friendly.

This was Market Day in Ludlow, Shropshire a couple of years ago, full of bustle and socialising, popping into shops just for the fun of it.  I wonder if and when we will get to a better norm rather than this new norm

Take time to Reflect…….

COCKERHAM-REfection-two

These trouble times in which we are all trying to come to terms with, each in their own ways… we perhaps need to give some time to just pause and reflect.

We are told that the new norm will be with us for a long time.  Adjusting to it is already a challenge and a real difficulty for some.  But change, or maybe a better word would be, “adapting ” ,  something that I guess we will all have to learn for ourselves.

But as always…
