On the mend

Today’s guest picture comes from my recorder playing friend Susan.  Last week she was in Edinburgh with some of her siblings and took some time out to walk the mile over the Forth Road Bridge to get a good position to photograph the building of the new bridge beside the old one. It will beContinue reading “On the mend”

The magic of frozen peas

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my son Tony and shows one method that he came across of making sure that your dog doesn’t get  attacked by swans while walking at Lake Windermere. I was interested to find out how my various joints would feel this morning after my experiment with the instantContinue reading “The magic of frozen peas”

Putting my foot down

Today’s guest picture shows Lincoln Cathedral, seen from the Castle walls.  It was taken by my sister Mary on a recent visit. We woke to heavy rain and strong winds but as Mrs Tootlepedal and my sister Susan went off to church and I spent the time inside sorting out the framing of my picturesContinue reading “Putting my foot down”

Better late than never

Today’s guest picture comes from my neighbour Gavin who is on a walking holiday in Norfolk. His picture shows a working windmill in the village of Weybourne, which they came to at the end of a ten mile walk. We had plenty of wind to spare here today but as the thermometer was showing summerContinue reading “Better late than never”

Down memory lane

Today’s guest picture comes from Tom, my South African correspondent.  The picture shows a view of the mountains seen from Worcester in the Western Cape area and was taken on his phone. We had another grey and drizzly day here today but it was definitely warmer which was very welcome. I had a traditional wanderContinue reading “Down memory lane”

Slow, slow, quick, quick, slow

Today’s guest picture shows the Adam Bridge at Kedleston Hall, which my sister Mary visited with my sister Susan and my brother Andrew recently.  (A description of their visit can be found on Susan’s blog.) We had another grey and windy day today but, as a small consolation, it was a few degrees warmer thanContinue reading “Slow, slow, quick, quick, slow”

A questionable sort of day

Today’s guest picture shows the elegant ceiling of Bath Abbey.  Venetia took the picture when she was there with my sister Mary recently. I always think that these places must take a lot of dusting to keep them clean. It was a day of questions. Would I do anything useful after breakfast?  Yes, a littleContinue reading “A questionable sort of day”

Carpe Diem (almost)

Today’s guest picture is a pair of damselflies in Venetia’s Somerset garden.  I never see dragon or damselflies in our garden.  It is most frustrating. Matilda has been a little poorly of late so Mrs Tootlepedal went up to Edinburgh today by an early train to lend a moral support (and a helping hand). ThisContinue reading “Carpe Diem (almost)”

Unexpected interruptions

The guest picture of the day comes from Sandra who has a feeder outside the window of her house which sits up on the hill overlooking the town.  It is not the sharpest picture in the world, as I suspect that Sandra took it on her tablet through the window but how often do youContinue reading “Unexpected interruptions”

Not much happening

Today’s guest pictures were sent to me by my friend Liz.  She had been to see one of her daughters enjoying, if that is the word, a Tough Mudder at Drumlanrig.  At the end competitors were asked to donate their trainers though the reason for this remained obscure.  I have combined her pictures into one.Continue reading “Not much happening”
