Birds, bugs, a bike and a box

Today’s dramatic guest picture comes from my friend Sue who is on holiday in Greece.  She visited the island of Hydra, just off the coast of the Peloponnese. We had a not dissimilar day here today, the difference being about 10°C as it was decidedly autumnal in temperature in Langholm.  I heard on the radioContinue reading “Birds, bugs, a bike and a box”

Blown off course

The guest picture of the day is another from Dropscone’s highland adventure.  He and his daughter visited the celebrated Smoo Cave which is near Durness in Sutherland. Strong winds and occasional showers kept me off my bike again in the morning and between the weather and the holiday, my September mileage is going  to beContinue reading “Blown off course”

Not quite Marseille

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone who is on holiday with his daughter Susan in the very north of the Scottish mainland.  The weather hasn’t always been kind to them but there have been some brighter moments. The weather here couldn’t have been in greater contrast to the serene blue skies of Marseille as theContinue reading “Not quite Marseille”

Back on the bike

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my friend Bruce whose wife spotted an interesting creature on their windowsill.  Is it a moth or a butterfly?  I don’t know. We had a fairly miserable morning as far as the weather went but bang on cue, the day brightened up a lot just after noonContinue reading “Back on the bike”

A useful day

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone who is holidaying with his daughter Susan in the extreme north of the Scottish mainland.  It shows the  Muckle Stacks which are just off the coast about 3 miles to the east of John o’ Groats. He seems to be having good weather up there but we had aContinue reading “A useful day”

Singing in the rain

Today’s guest picture comes from my neighbour Gavin who is on holiday in Jersey.  This is the Corbiere lighthouse. As it was Sunday today, Mrs Tootlepedal went off to sing in the church choir and I made a lamb stew in the slow cooker.  There had been some sunny moments while I cooked so IContinue reading “Singing in the rain”

Safely home

No guest picture of the day today but a picture of the road where I was staying as a guest of my sister Susan overnight before our journey back to Langholm. It was a warm morning in Kentish Town in North London but somehow, although it was sunny and however quiet and tree lined theContinue reading “Safely home”
