General zooming

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He was staying with my sister Mary last week when he spotted this visitor to her frosty garden. It was a few degrees above freezing here today without getting particularly warm, but it was dry and almost sunny when Sandy came down for coffee. Both he andContinue reading “General zooming”

A new shopping experience

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He saw this object in an art shop window and wondered what market it was aimed at. Short fat dog lovers perhaps? It was a bit warmer today, but as the clouds were down and the wind was up, it didn’t feel very cheerful as we cycledContinue reading “A new shopping experience”

Winding about

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He came across a tree full of waxwings in East Wemyss yesterday. It was grey and chilly when we got up here this morning, but it was above freezing so that was welcome. After a leisurely breakfast and an enjoyable crossword, I roused myself enough to haveContinue reading “Winding about”

Farewell to our visitors

Today’s guest picture is another of my brother Andrew’s shots from his trip along the Thames yesterday. He has a lot of things to do just now, and he says that his head is spinning a lot faster than the London Eye was going round. Annie cooked some cheese and marmite pinwheels yesterday, and theyContinue reading “Farewell to our visitors”

A Tootlepedal day

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother Andrew. He is still in London helping to sort out my sister’s affairs. He found time for a trip along the Thames today. It froze over night here but the temperature soon rose above freezing as the morning went on. It didn’t show any enthusiasm for actuallyContinue reading “A Tootlepedal day”

Up to a point

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie. It shows our granddaughter Evie leading me across the hill this afternoon. The guest picture takes away quite a lot of the tension that I was hoping to build up regarding whether the weather would lighten up in time to let us get out for a walk.Continue reading “Up to a point”

A misty pedal

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother Andrew who is staying in London to help my sister Mary for a while. Our other sister Caroline joined them today. Andrew took this picture of Hawley Lock at Camden on a sunny but chilly day in the south. The temperature crept up a degree or twoContinue reading “A misty pedal”

A quiet day

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone. He looked up the other day and found a digger in his garden. (He has kindly allowed the couple who are converting the church next door into a dwelling house to run their drainage through his estate.) I would like to start this post by thanking the many peopleContinue reading “A quiet day”

Still no cycling

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He is in London at the moment and enjoyed a walk up a hill yesterday. to get a view and a breath of fresh air. We had been promised warmer weather today by the forecast, but it was -5°C again at breakfast time and it didn’t getContinue reading “Still no cycling”

A toddle and a tootle

Today’s guest picture comes from sunny East Wemyss. Our son Tony wishes to point that they get the moon there too. We got plenty of sunshine here today, but as the temperature was a measly -5°C at breakfast time, there was no inclination to go outside and do some sunbathing. Mrs Tootlepedal went off toContinue reading “A toddle and a tootle”
