Sun on my back

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my friend Bruce.  He was impressed by the size of this nail brush.  Its owner must have very big hands. I was awoken by a loud cry from Mrs Tootlepedal.  “There’s a partridge in the garden,” she said.  I had hoped that by the time  that IContinue reading “Sun on my back”

Taking my time

The second of the ‘trip to London’ pictures shows “Topaz”, one of the elegant Pullman coaches pulled by the steam engine which we saw at Carlisle station.  I like the little lamps with shades at every table. We had a rare outbreak of summer today with plenty of sunshine and a cooling breeze from theContinue reading “Taking my time”

King of the castle

Today’s guest picture is the town hall of Ripon.  My brother, who was visiting,  was much taken with the inscription. We had a day of pleasantly cool but sunny weather today and if I hadn’t had quite a strenuous pedal yesterday, I would have been out on my bike.  As it was, I spent aContinue reading “King of the castle”

Toddlepedal et al….et al

Today’s guest picture comes from a walk that my brother did last month.  He remarks, ” If you choose to close your teashop at 4pm, I can’t think of a nicer way to tell thirsty ramblers.” We had another fine and windy day here with occasional showers, very fine and very windy.  It was prettyContinue reading “Toddlepedal et al….et al”

Hot stuff

Today’s composite guest picture is a celebration of Matilda, who has just reached the age of two, sent by her parents.  She is being very helpful in the garden now that she is so old and the weather is nice. There was hardly a cloud in the sky again today and even more importantly, itContinue reading “Hot stuff”

Hip hip hooray (modified rapture)

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He passed a prominent landmark on a recent cultural trip to the capital. I would have enjoyed a quiet day of rest today but medical matters intervened and I had to drive to Dumfries in the morning to see a specialist about my hip. It has beenContinue reading “Hip hip hooray (modified rapture)”

An almost perfect day

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother’s Bristol trip and shows the cathedral there.  Two of his sisters sneaked into the shot. In a recent post, I asked for a small ridge of high pressure to give us a break from the rain and today my request was granted.  We woke to blue skiesContinue reading “An almost perfect day”

A winter’s tale

Today’s guest picture shows a friendly squirrel which approached my sister Mary in the hope of a snack. After yesterday’s gloomy and damp afternoon, I was more than pleased to wake up to this view from the bedroom window this morning. After breakfast (and a little lie down to get my strength up), I lookedContinue reading “A winter’s tale”

Gear failure

My children have been looking upwards.  After my daughter’s moon shots yesterday, my older son Tony saw some aeroplanes playing noughts and crosses in the sky over Edinburgh this morning. It was another perfect day today, still and sunny from start to finish.  I was intent on cycling but it was too cold for meContinue reading “Gear failure”

A happy ending

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone’s sister Liz and shows the beach at Cromer in Norfolk which she visited last month while on a walking holiday. Very stiff winds put all thoughts of an early morning pedal out of my mind and I did a little shopping instead and then had the pleasure of eatingContinue reading “A happy ending”
