Carpeted

Today’s striking guest picture shows Bilbao.  My brother Andrew paid it a flying visit a few days ago. I was enjoying a day of rest today, having exceeded my cycling target for the month by some 90 miles.  This resolve was assisted by some very grey and dreary weather which persisted all day. It wasContinue reading “Carpeted”

Mrs Tootlepedal is out to lunch again

Today’s guest picture shows Matilda enjoying a little sunshine but warmly clad in the hat and shawl which her granny knitted for her. Mrs Tootlepedal was in adventurous mood again today and since the wind was light and the weather was fair, she suggested lunch at Newcastleton. Newcastleton is only ten miles away but betweenContinue reading “Mrs Tootlepedal is out to lunch again”

Sandra and Jim come up trumps

Today’s guest picture, from my sister Mary’s camera, shows some very smart chaps going to defend the Queen from something or other. It was a grey and dull day when we got up, not much good for photographs but excellent, as it turned out, for cycling.  The temperature was very comfortable and the wind wasContinue reading “Sandra and Jim come up trumps”

Tootlepedal sings

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who was showing a friend, who is very interested in rocks, a fine example of worked stone in Trafalgar Square. It was a dull day as far as the weather went with intermittent drizzle for most of the day and it was a dull day as farContinue reading “Tootlepedal sings”

A day that got better

Today’s guest picture, kindly taken and sent by the new baby’s maternal grandfather Francis, shows Alistair and Clare happy to be home with Mathilda Jo. Our day started off grey, drizzly and windy but steadily got better in every way as it went along. First Dr Tinker arrived with a big wrench and got aContinue reading “A day that got better”

Taking the long view

Today’s guest picture, sent to me by cyclist Lorne,  shows the results of a piece of well travelled sourdough starter in action.  The starter came to me from Talkin in Cumbria across the border, a gift from my recorder playing friend Sue and I passed some of it on to the clarinet playing mother ofContinue reading “Taking the long view”

A stop go sort of day

Today’s guest picture is another of a flower bed in the Royal Park in London, just to put a bit of perspective on our own tulip displays.  My sister Mary took the picture. I had a day of fits and starts today.  This was partly conditioned by the weather which started off grey, then turnedContinue reading “A stop go sort of day”

Four good things

Today’s guest picture is that very rare thing, a picture from Mrs Tootlepedal’s camera.  It shows the world’s finest baby in the arms of her paternal grandfather yesterday. After a short spell of rain yesterday, the weather returned to being kind and the sun was shining again today.  We hung around until we had gotContinue reading “Four good things”

Holding the baby

No guest picture today but pride of place to the new arrival who is seen in the arms of her grandmother.  Mrs Tootlepedal seems surprised to find that she is quite used to this sort of thing. As you can see, we went to Edinburgh to visit Alistair and Clare and their daughter.  It madeContinue reading “Holding the baby”

Another new visitor

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my son Alistair and shows the little girl that makes Mrs Tootlepedal a grandmother.   Our best wishes go to Alistair and his wife Clare.  We hope to go to visit mother and baby quite soon. The arrival of our grandchild was a much more complicated affair thanContinue reading “Another new visitor”
