Ghostwriting

Here is another picture from our recent walk around Hatfield Moor. The tree is a young silver birch and it comes under 2 photography subject classifications (that I know of). First of all, it’s a ‘hero’ tree. This means that it’s a standalone tree, set apart from a group of other trees. Secondly, it’s a ‘star of the show’, which means it stands out against a load of others. Looking from a different angle, it’s clearly a hero tree. But […]

Welcome!

A massive hello and welcome to a raft of new followers who have arrived over the past day or so. I don’t know where you have all come from, but it’s very nice to see you here. Perhaps the blog has been shared on a web page or another blog or something else recently. If you know, I’d love it if you could share it (in the comments), so that I may go and say thank you! The picture is another […]

Tier 3 lockdown

Here is another image from our walk around Hatfield Moor last week. I love that blue glow on the water. It makes it look like some kind of grotto, or as though something magical may emerge at any moment. As South Yorkshire enters tier 3 lockdown on Saturday, we may be taking a few more walks. We are allowed to go out for “outside exercise” in groups of up to 30 people, apparently. This is how our local Ramblers Association […]

Back to novelling

I am such a tease, knowing that the title will irk at least a couple of my friends when they see it! I can hear them now complaining about the “novelling” verb.  😱 The above picture is yet another view of Hatfield Moor. We couldn’t get across to this part as there’s a massive dyke along most of the path and there was no crossing place nearby.  In the distance, along the top of the picture, you can just about […]

Indexing

Today, I am doing the index for The Life of Richard Cadbury. The one job I dislike the most about writing is the indexing. So, for now, I leave you with another image from our “fungi walk” at the weekend. See you on the other side! (If I make it.) (Send chocolate!)

Technical issues

Here is another view from Hatfield Moor. The peat moors are quite ancient and this is part of what they call the Neolithic Way.  These little paths wind all over the moors in a circular pattern, with varying walks of different lengths. Because of the nature of the site – it is after all peat bog land – the paths also get wet and boggy in places.  WordPress I am still having problems with WordPress.  Support have spent a lot […]

Tier 2 lockdown

Wahey! I finally found out how to place a picture where I want it instead of where WP thinks I want it! And how to resize it too! I’m on a roll. 🤪 Our walk on Sunday turned into a bit of a fungi walk, and here’s just one example that we encountered. Isn’t he sweet? Now I just need to find out how to pull up a sub-heading without it appearing below everything else … Tier 2 Lockdown Along […]

Hatfield Moor

WordPress was having a bit of a hissy fit today. First of all, it wouldn’t let me create or edit a post in Edge, and then it wouldn’t let me preview a post in Opera or Edge.  However, as I pay for the personal plan, I was able to contact support and they seem to have fixed it for me.  Or at least on Edge they have. Opera may take a while longer, but I’m not using that as much […]
