Facing the music

Today’s first guest picture comes from Muriel, the leader of the Mrs Tootlepedal’s church choir, who was at our concert on Friday in Canonbie where she took this photograph of us. The second guest picture comes from Luke’s mum who took this picture of her talented child at Eskdalemuir yesterday. The musical weekend continued todayContinue reading “Facing the music”

Eskdalemuir serenade

Today’s guest picture shows a room with a view.  It was captured by Venetia while on holiday in Corrèze. She seems to have had plenty of interesting things to look at while she was inn France. We had sunny spells and brisk winds again today but we were spared any showers which was a relief. Continue reading “Eskdalemuir serenade”

A goodbye, a welcome back and a concert

Today’s guest picture shows Argentat on the Dordogne which was visited by Venetia during her recent French holiday. After a good breakfast, we said goodbye to Granny as she went off to the deep south with Mike and Frankie.  She had been the perfect guest and we were sad to see her go. Shortly afterContinue reading “A goodbye, a welcome back and a concert”

A farewell meal

Today’s guest picture is another from my sister Mary’s Lake District trip and shows the path to Easedale Tarn. If only I could have persuaded myself to get up at 6 o’clock when I opened my eyes to see strong sunshine outside, I would have been able to make the best of the day.  AsContinue reading “A farewell meal”

A time to rest

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia’s recent trip to France.  It shows a house competing in the most window boxes of the year competition. After a burst of cycling activity in recent days, I was helped in my decision to have a calm day today by an even colder and more blustery wind than usual. Continue reading “A time to rest”

Programmed

Today’s guest picture is another from my sister Mary’s recent Lake District holiday.  It shows Grasmere.  She takes lovely pictures. It was a bit warmer when I got up today but it didn’t feel much warmer because of the dratted wind which was still blowing strongly.  It took me some time to summon up theContinue reading “Programmed”

Flinging myself about

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia, my Somerset correspondent, who has been away in France.  The picture shows a charming boutique in Collanges-la-Rouge. A cloudy and windy morning gave rise to quite a long internal debate over the pleasures of cycling.  In the end though,my sense of derring-do just won out over my tendency toContinue reading “Flinging myself about”

Further incursions

Today’s guest picture, a lovely study of the Lake District, comes from my sister Mary who was on holiday there last week. Yesterday’s sunny and warm day turned out to have been yet another false start on the long march towards summer and we were back to grey, windy and far from warm conditions today. Continue reading “Further incursions”

Invasion

Today’s guest picture comes from our visitor, Marianne and shows the river Cramond in Edinburgh on a rare sunny day recently. When I woke up this morning, the wind had dropped, the sun was out, the sky was blue.  It was a day for cycling and I managed to make good use of as muchContinue reading “Invasion”

That warm feeling

Today’s guest picture is another from Liz’s visit to the Chelsea Flower show.  It shows the much admired Laurent-Perrier Chatsworth garden.  It is difficult to know what to think about it without actually being in it. It was Dropscone’s 74th birthday today and he celebrated by going round his favourite 20 mile morning cycle rideContinue reading “That warm feeling”
