Upside

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony. I used an old picture of his yesterday and but this lovely scene from the Costa del East Wemyss, where the sun always shines, was taken today. In a break with tradition, I looked out of my upstairs window at the birds at breakfast time. TheContinue reading “Upside”

Progress

In the absence of any more up to date guest pictures, I have gone back to sunny days a fortnight ago. The picture shows the never ending delight of the Wemyss coast as seen by our son Tony. We had another cold night with the temperature at our local weather station recorded as a meagreContinue reading “Progress”

Strange objects

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. Our sister Susan is visiting him at the moment and he introduced her to the chain ferry over the River Soar. She enjoyed it a lot as you can see. We had another fine day here after another cold morning. The temperature was low enough to putContinue reading “Strange objects”

A good suggestion

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who visited St Paul’s Cathedral in London today. The sky was blue when we woke up and the sun was out, but as the temperature had been at 2°C (36°F) at six o’clock, it wasn’t very warm. An occasionally gusty wind did nothing to make the dayContinue reading “A good suggestion”

A quiet day

Today’s guest pictures come from our sons. Tony produced the sweet corn and Alistair was responsible for the carrot. It is good to see them taking after their mother. We had a slightly circumscribed day today as Mrs Tootlepedal wasn’t quite at her peak and needed a visit to the doctor and a day inContinue reading “A quiet day”

Two contrasting walks

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan who visited the famous gardens at Kew and was very impressed by this statue. It leaves Mr Grumpy looking like a little ray of sunshine. We had a close run thing here with the temperature dropping to a single degree above freezing in the early morning. FortunatelyContinue reading “Two contrasting walks”

The last day of summer?

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Gavin who is on holiday in the west of the region. He rightly thought this old church in the middle of a field near Isle of Whithorn might interest me. It was established in the early 12th century by Fergus, Lord of Galloway. It is Cruggleton Church andContinue reading “The last day of summer?”

Winding up again

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce. He spotted a splendidly rickety bridge on trip up the Megdale valley. I think that I might use the one in the background to cross the stream. Our spell of dry weather continued and I could find no trace of rain in the rain gauge for theContinue reading “Winding up again”

Winding down today

Today’s guest picture comes from East Wemyss, the sunshine capital of the world, where our son Tony was out and about early enough to catch the sunrise yesterday. We had another fine day here today, but the northerly wind was a bit stronger so naturally, it felt a bit cooler. Between the wind, slightly tiredContinue reading “Winding down today”

Over the hills and quite far away

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony’s partner Marianne. She had a striking view from her place of work today. We had another good day here, but neither quite as sunny nor quite as warm as yesterday. This didn’t matter much to Mrs Tootlepedal who had a great raft of administrative tasks to getContinue reading “Over the hills and quite far away”
