Today’s guest picture comes from Mrs Tootlepedal who used her new phone to take this handsome group portrait of her brother, sister-in-law, niece and great niece whom she was visiting while on her jaunt to the south. As she had visited her mother too, she had seen four generations in one day.
Unlike yesterday, when coffee and bun on the bench in the sunshine was the way to go…
…there was no respite from continuous rain all day today.
It was raining in the morning when I drove down into England for my singing lesson which was enjoyable and useful, and it was raining in the afternoon when Sandy and I drove up to Eskdalemuir to put up our camera club exhibition there.
It took longer than we expected to hang the 30 odd pictures but the result looked satisfactory and the Hub manager was very pleased with the show. Seven members of the club are taking part.
It was still raining as we drove back, but things did begin to brighten up a bit until Sandy most unwisely remarked that it was looking better. At this point it began to rain very heavily.
It was still raining when my flute pupil Luke came. He showed clear evidence of having practised and played with some very nice tone today.
I had some more sausage stew for my tea and was not surprised to find that it was still raining when the recorder group assembled in the evening for our monthly playing session. We had a hard working and enjoyable time, but as it was still raining when we had finished, they made tracks for home and I will be forced to eat all the biscuits which I had bought for our post-playing cup of tea.
All in all, in spite of the miserable weather, I had a pretty good day. Photographically, it was a day for standing in the shelter of the front door to take a flower picture across the drive and luckily, the dahlias didn’t seem to mind the rain…
…and at least I got a little sun.
It is going to rain again tomorrow.
