hello, it's me, I can't seem to write next to a video without deleting it, my husband would know what to do but he's away so much, sob, and anyway, this way at least I'm sure of getting one comment, sigh. Terribly sorry for being so unpardonably remiss lately, I'm beginning to worry that if people suspect I'm too busy to blog then maybe I'm not the kept woman they thought, but then if they think 'belle de jour' is real I am probably worrying needlessly. Hope very much to catch up with everything at some point but in the meantime after an exhaustive search for songs giving the true flavour of life in the north I'm afraid it came down to a choice between this and John Shuttleworth so here, as they say when the BBC is on strike, is some music and take care now

Hope everything's well with you Rilly. You give the "blogosphere" a good name, so hurry back soon.

I didn't realise that comic relief was around 25 years ago... Oh, that was real?

(Fabulous - kept expecting Pan's People to burst out of the wings...)

Stay at home dad said...

Without broadband this is a large white square.

Just the sort of thing I like, Rilly, very relaxing, thanks...

Mr Farty said...

Wow. Wow. Wow. Unbelievable!

Glad you're still on t'internet.

hello Rilly, pet. What's with this fog that only goes up to her knees then? Did she go in studio straight after paul mcartney filmed the 'mull of kintyre' video or is it just to hide her big feet? real real northern fog should be so thick all you can see are the headlights of the gritting lorry bearing down on you as you realise too late you've been driving on wrong side of road for last ten miles. ta ra for now pet

mutterings and meanderings said...

Oh Rilly darling, so glad you're still here and didn't migrate south for the winter like other birds of paradise ...

Eats Wombats said...

Even with broadband it's a large white square for a long time. Very zen.

I want to make a better a bird in the hand joke but...

Well, let's just say I prefer the white square. Rilly, if the wife made faces at me like that I'd go live in London. Wait, I mean I'd go live up North.

Iota said...

Oh. I was waiting for the clever twist at the end, promised by the title "Kate Bush - The Whole Story", but it was just 3 mins 53 secs of Wuthering Heights.

You're so clever, that I expect you meant that deliberately as a metaphor for the unfulfilled promises of life up north. Yes. I'm sure that's what you meant. Absolutely.

aims said...

Honestly - I don't know who Kate Bush is - and I couldn't understand a word she was saying/singing? Is that her real voice?!

Anyway - Glad to see you are still around Rilly - hope the book is going well - and come back sooner the next time!

@themill said...

Thought you'd got lost somewhere on the Northern Moors - hurry back.

Pig in the Kitchen said...

Phew. when i saw the vid I thought for a moment you ARE Kate Bush, but now you've explained. Hope very much you'll be back soon!

jack, bearing up dear, bearing up and all the better for you're dropping by

potty mummy, let she who has read a bronte novel without feeling like putting on a floaty dress and singing cast the first stone

stay at home dad, large white square, sounds kind of zen, but would it work in book form, sigh

mr farty, only just clinging on by my fake fingernails...

arthur dear, the moral of the story is never boil the kettle on the floor

M&M, thankyou for sticking with me. I had thought about going south for winter but my husband has forgotten to out petrol in the car so I'm stuck here till spring, sigh

hi eats wombats, sorry to hear you are another white square person. you must have the same ISP as SAHD

Iota, thankyou for saying I am clever even though I couldn't manage to write text in the same post as a video, or even make the video appear to half the people looking at it, sigh

aims, that is her real voice although she has mellowed in more recent times. The song is inspired by the scene in the 1970's BBC adaptation ( not the actual novel, the story goes ) where Lockwood encounters kathy's ghost at the window hence 'heathcliffe its me kathy come home ' and 'let me in at your window' , well, you get the drift...

&mill, lost on a northern moor is just what I am, sigh

PITK, lovely to see you. I have got a dress like hers actually and on a cold morning perhaps I could be mistaken for her...
