Railway and Mountains

Thursday last week, after work, I took the long way home, the scenic route.

Basically it was nowhere near being on the way home, the wrong direction for a start. It was nice though, to have an evening drive and just relax.

Other than work, nothing much has been happening around here. Completely uninteresting blog wise to be honest. That is unless you wish me to yabber on about the lack of housework getting done and the washing I have to do every evening so I have a uniform and the fact that cooking dinner seems just too hard.

I told you, completely uninteresting.

But hey, work has to be done and money is always good. They do say it makes the world go round. Well I don't know about that but it certainly pays the bills and feeds us.

It reminds me of how hard it was when we first moved here. Mr Sparky was an apprentice and I had to take what I could get job wise. A few years later all the job applying has pretty much paid off, finally, and Mr Sparky is qualified and looking at going out on his own. So much has happened in the last few years.

It i amazing how fast things go and how much they change and yet don't.

And here I am, still taking photos of the region. Although admittedly not so enthusiastically at the moment.

At the moment this blog feels like it has hit a standstill. I wonder about what to do with it. 
What do you like about it or think I could do to improve?
But then maybe it is just me and that end of year worn-out-ness or feeling the need to mix it up a bit.

Meanwhile I am going to keep heading out and taking photos and working. 
Well taking photos when I'm not worn out from working and am sleeping instead.

I hope have a great week!

  1. Your photos are simply stunning! And, as it's my first time to your blog, I have to say I think it's truly lovely.... the background and your pics are gorgeous. I think we all go through times where we feel a bit stagnant. I'm like that with my rooms and my house! I've lived here for 8 years now, which is the longest I've lived anywhere in my adult life, and my place is pretty small so I can't change the placement of the furniture much. I'm feeling like it's time for some redecorating with paint or some new floor coverings... something! I've bought some new artwork recently, so that's perked things up a bit. You've probably had your blog for a while so it feels stagnant to you, but probably not to others!!! x

    1. Thank you for your kind words! You are right, sometimes we need a small change to improve things ... or a break.
      I feel a little bit like that about our place too but we can't do much with it as it isn't actually ours.
      I'm glad you enjoyed dropping by my blog and hope you are able to do something to make your home feel fresh to you.

  2. You are doing a great service to the wonderful place you live by sharing it! I love to share my local area too, only because I am so proud of the place I live and was born into.
    I go through blogging lulls too. Hang in ther, and keep sharing! xx

    1. Thank you! I love hearing about your part of the world. I enjoy sharing what I see, because it is a fairly new place to me it makes it fun and a great excuse to explore more as I look around.
      I think we all do. I've just got to stop worrying if I don't get around to blogging and blog when I feel like it.

  3. REALLY nice photos! It looks like a great place.

    1. Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed checking out this spot with me.
