A sticky mess by happypat

A sticky mess

The little brook that ran along the edge of our fields gets very muddy. It flows at varying heights to join the River Wyre at times flooding into the fields. You can see lots of bird foot prints & in the summer hoof marks from cattle & sheep. There is a footpath along here alongside the river.

I have decided to have a little break from 365 for a while, my head isn’t in the right place at the moment. I’m busy & not much mojo to go out taking photos. Hope to be back when I get myself together.
Thank you for all your friendship & encouragement!
I always enjoy your images, giving a snapshot of daily life in the northern hemisphere. Have a nice break and hopefully you’ll pop in from time to time.

This makes me sad but I truly do understand your needing a break. Hope to see you here again. You have a wonderful, busy, life, which is a very good thing.

So sad to see you go Pat - but I hope after your little break you will feel the urge to come back - enjoy your break and renew your mojo !
February 13th, 2019  
Enjoy your break Pat - we all need to do it sometimes and it will do you good. I look forward to seeing you back here again fully refreshed with your mojo back again!! We will miss you!!
February 13th, 2019  
Have a gentle time and hope you're soon feeling fine again.
February 13th, 2019  
take care Pat, missing you already,
come back when you feel ready :)
February 13th, 2019  
Take a well deserved break and take care. Don't forget to come back when you can.

I like the sandy surface that seems very highly structured but fragile at the same time.
February 14th, 2019  
I am going to miss your posts and comments. Hope you come back soon, fully recovered. We all have slumps and I had a few last year, don't know how I kept going sometimes, but enjoy your break.

This image is quite appropriate, stuck in the mud, ha ha.

Oh Pat I will miss you ... love your 'day to day' images.. but rest up and get that phojo back ... Take care and much love..:0)
February 14th, 2019  
I'll miss you too, but a break is always a good idea if you're not in the mood for it. It needs to be fun and not a chore. Lots of love and see you when you return xxx

I guess these floods are when the boats travel up the river and become stranded until the next flood. Nice shot Pat. It's good to take a rest. Just brows the images, and leave a comment when you feel the need.
February 14th, 2019  
Enjoy your break Pat. I will missing having a peep each day into your life. I am sure you will come back refreshed in the Spring.
February 14th, 2019  
I'll miss your photos of your daily life. Take care, it's good to take a rest. Virtual hug :-)

Thank you all for your lovely comments, I will definitely keep track of all your photos & im sure I will be tempted to add the odd comment here & there! You never know I may be back before I think I will but at the moment I have things that need attention so better to have a break for a while. I’m off to Rome at the end of March so will have plenty of photos & fillers then!
That’s if we can take off in the plane the day after Brexit that is!!
February 14th, 2019  
Have a good break, look forward to seeing you back sometime soon
February 14th, 2019  
@happypat. I'm going to Budapest on Brexit day!!
February 14th, 2019  
@carolmw Oh my Carol, do you think we will be flying? You might be ok but the day after we might be grounded! Never thought when we booked! Good luck!
February 14th, 2019  
Everybody says such good things to you Pat! I can't do any better but will miss your regular comments. I do understand the desire to pull out - its a big commitment to keep going. You are going to Rome???
February 14th, 2019  
@maggiemae Yes on 30th March maggie. Looking forward to it! Will message you!
February 14th, 2019  
Great shot but I wouldn't want to have to walk through that
February 16th, 2019  
Rather a serene shot. Hope to see you here or on Facebook soon!
February 18th, 2019  
@boxplayer Will be back soon Ayla....x

Oh, sorry to read that you're taking a break, but hope you will be back soon. I totally understand though, especially as you've been on 365 so long. I know that I sometimes think about stopping and then suddenly I get a new bout of enthusiasm from somewhere!

This is a beautiful image - I love the stickiness of it, and the lovely reflections in the still water.

I hope you get away ok in March. We just got caught up in the BMI fiasco. Lost our flights to Oslo to visit our daughter in March. However, we are rebooked with SAS now, and just trying to get someone to pay out something to reimburse us some of the extra cost. There's never a dull moment, is there?!

hope y0u will be back soon Pat missing you already x
February 20th, 2019  
@jamibann Oh bad luck Issi, you never really think about which airline you book with....it’s the one that goes your way after all, hope you get your money back. I think we fly with Ryanair so should be OK....going from Liverpool. Yes I will be back...after Rome I will have renewed energy! Thank you.
February 20th, 2019  
@snowy Thank you Diana, very kind! You start again I stop....not intended!
February 20th, 2019  
We'll miss you! Hope you're back soon.
February 21st, 2019  
Enjoy your break, Pat. I have come back full time sooner than expected because I saw the rainbow challenge. I like your sticky mess photo!
March 3rd, 2019  
Hope you have a wonderful Easter and a relaxing break from 365. While I do miss your daily posts, it is so good to take time away from the hustle and bustle of the world to reflect on what is important.
Take care.
March 14th, 2019  
Enjoy your break Pat!
