Today’s guest picture is an adventurous squirrel making free with an athlete’s banana on the edge of a tennis court. My sister Mary spotted it in Regent’s Park.
Apart from the weather, we had a perfect Christmas Day. Everyone got exactly the presents that they wanted and Matilda and her father spent most of the day playing with theirs.
Mrs Tootlepedal conjured up a very satisfactory midday meal indeed and we all tucked in, eating with great gusto but without eating too much, a tricky thing to manage.
For the evening meal, we ate cold this and that but topped it off with a helping of Mrs Tootlepedal’s sublime sticky toffee pudding.
The day was delightful but the weather was frightful. All the same, Mrs Tootlepedal and I staggered out for a walk after lunch in the rain.
It was even less of a day for pictures than ever so I only took two.
I thought they summed up our walk quite well.
We are promised a bit of sun tomorrow.
