Unusual weather event

Today’s guest picture, from my sister Mary, shows Mrs Tootlepedal and Pat on a Christmas walk last week. It was raining again when we got up so I had breakfast and sensibly went back to bed again.  I rose gracefully from my resting place just in time for a cup of coffee, kindly provided byContinue reading “Unusual weather event”

Once bitten….

Today’s guest picture, sent by my younger son from Edinburgh, shows the Scottish Parliament building at Holyrood.  In 9 months we will know whether it is to house the governing body of a newly independent nation or to remain a provincial outpost of the London banking system as at present. It was raining when weContinue reading “Once bitten….”

A proper Sunday morning

Today’s guest picture shows a Turkish bath in Leamington Spa.  My brother saw it on a recent visit.  The designers in 1840 certainly tried to make it look ‘Turkish’. Our brief spell of pleasant weather continued today and it was bright and sunny when I went up to fill the Moorland bird feeders after breakfast. Continue reading “A proper Sunday morning”

Home alone

Today’s guest picture is an arty effort from Edinburgh, courtesy of my younger son. The first business of the day was toast and porridge and the second was a trip to Carlisle to put our guests on the London train and wave goodbye.  Owing to following the precautionary principle with a little too much zeal,Continue reading “Home alone”

A final feast

Today’s guest picture, sent by Bruce, shows his dog Guthrie in festive mood.  A dog after my own heart. After the brief glimpse of reasonable weather, we were back to rain and strong winds today and there was no opportunity for bird watching at all.  There was a moment of excitement when the two jigsawContinue reading “A final feast”

Making the most of it

Today’s guest picture is part of a photograph which was sent to me by my younger son who went for a walk in Holyrood Park in Edinburgh today.  He was looking north from the lower slopes of Arthur’s Seat past the football stadium of Hibernian Football Club, over the Firth of Forth and on towardsContinue reading “Making the most of it”

A full day

Today’s guest picture is a seasonal one sent to me by Gavin and taken on Beaver Mountain in the USA by his son or daughter-in-law who are skiing there. We had a wonderful Christmas day with wall to wall sunshine and a much reduced wind.  Inside the house all was good as well with MrsContinue reading “A full day”

Post early for Christmas

Today’s guest picture, sent to me by her mother, shows Maisie enjoying a healthy breakfast. I am posting this early in the day to avoid the evening internet slowdown.   While Maisie has just enjoyed mid summer day in New Zealand, we have had another miserable, wet and windy day here.  As far as cycling goes,Continue reading “Post early for Christmas”

Gateway

A guest picture at last.  A spot beside the Kennet and Avon canal where my brother stopped for a sandwich. I am posting early in the afternoon in an effort to beat the current great internet slowdown in the evenings in Langholm.  So many people have complained that maybe things will be better anyway butContinue reading “Gateway”
