I can see my house from up here



Todays outside drawing feels like a bit of a cheat. I ventured 500 yards around the back of the allotments to the Oakenshaw Flood Alleviation Scheme. I can see the embankments from my kitchen window. It's on my doorstep but I don't go here. There's no reason apart for the sake of a short walk. I have to ask for directions on how to get to where I want. There are some secret steps that get me to a prime spot. I'm looking down on my house in the Coal Yard. A view I don't normally see.

Weather is too windy to draw straight lines. The clouds are racing with the sun creating dramatic cloudscapes and shadows. Totally different from my perspective from inside the house.

I can receive my Wi-Fi connection from here.
