Today’s guest picture shows a vineyard in South Africa. It was kindly sent to me by Langholm exile Tom.
My son and daughter in law in Edinburgh are also laid up with up with the same bug . This is a great difficulty to them with Matilda to look after.
Mrs Tootlepedal is still coughing a bit so she missed the church choir and we both missed the Carlisle choir practice.
Thanks go to everyone who wished me a happy birthday. It was a good day but I could wish that the happiness had lasted longer than 24 hours.
I took one brief look out of the kitchen window.
