An eponymous day with cheerful legs

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who started a nine mile walk today by crossing the River Manifold over this handsome bridge. We had a lovely day here as well but it was decidedly chilly at first so it took me some time to get going on my bike. I checked on theContinue reading “An eponymous day with cheerful legs”

Wrong sort of miles

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  As well as seals and curlews, his new house offers him fine sunrises as he walks his dogs. We had a lovely crisp and sunny morning here, perfect for cycling if I had had any go about me.  Sadly, my go was gone and I was stillContinue reading “Wrong sort of miles”

Good weather, indifferent legs

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia, my Somerset correspondent.  She set herself up with this splendid view with the intention of enjoying the Red  Arrows display team as they flew towards her.   Unfortunately, owing to a failure of communication, they appeared from behind her and were past before she could get a good shot.  Still,Continue reading “Good weather, indifferent legs”

Winded

I have kindly been sent a lot of guest pictures lately and I am working through them so I apologise to those whose great images have fallen through the sieve of time.  Today’s effort is from our younger son and shows his washing line on a typical recent day. We had another grey day todayContinue reading “Winded”

Another quiet day

Today’s guest picture is another from our older son Tony’s morning dog walking.   You don’t see sights like this in Langholm.  I shall expect porpoises next. We woke to another rather chilly and damp morning and things hadn’t got any drier or brighter by lunch time when I took this picture while doing some deadContinue reading “Another quiet day”

Right bird, right camera(s)

Today’s guest picture is another from the seaside outside our son Tony’s new house on the north shore of the Forth.  As well as seal spotting, he has been curlew catching. We had very little encouragement to do anything outside here today as it rained on and off the the whole time in a veryContinue reading “Right bird, right camera(s)”

Right birds, wrong camera

No words can do justice to the greatest guest picture of the day ever.  It comes from my Newcastle correspondent Fiona who is in the Netherlands and it is a view that just can not be surpassed. It was cloudless and chilly when we got up but the sun warmed things up and Mrs TootlepedalContinue reading “Right birds, wrong camera”

Showers and sunshine

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan.  It was taken by the friend who took her on a tour of Germany recently.  They were quite surprised to find this plaque. It was a day of frequent showers with bright spells in between so the trick was to get the timing right if you wantedContinue reading “Showers and sunshine”

Two sons for the price of one

Today’s guest picture comes from our younger son Al and shows Matilda rightly triumphant beside a fantastic giraffe.  She may have had a little help in building it. I couldn’t rightly say. We went to Edinburgh to see Matilda today and in the the course of the day, saw both our sons as one hadContinue reading “Two sons for the price of one”

Mrs Tootlepedal plays a blinder

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He knows that I enjoy his photographs of teapots so he sent me this teapot cascade from Derby. (He was going for a cup of coffee when he passed it.) It was another very grey and gloomy morning today, with occasional drizzle to make things even gloomier.Continue reading “Mrs Tootlepedal plays a blinder”
