Hunting the hugger

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie. It shows the sparkly cloak that our granddaughter Evie was wearing today. Some children have all the luck We had a very far from sparkling day here today. The weather varied between grey and very grey, not quite drizzling and actually drizzling. On the plus side, itContinue reading “Hunting the hugger”

Mostly dodging the showers

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He spotted this interesting cloud over East Wemyss. We had very variable weather here today with some heavy showers, some very gusty winds, and a bit of sunshine thrown in from time to time. One of the heavy showers came in the morning, but as we wereContinue reading “Mostly dodging the showers”

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”

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”

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.

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”

A surprise

Just to show that it still often sunny in East Wemyss, our son Tony sent us this picture taken a couple of days ago. We expected it to be cold this morning, but all the same we got quite a shock when we looked out of the window when we got up. The snow didn’tContinue reading “A surprise”

A full day of reading, singing and walking

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He passed the Derby Islamic Centre on his walk today. The temperature had dropped quite a bit overnight here and there were interesting patterns on the Velux window in the bathroom when I got up. Happily for us, it was not icy when when we went outContinue reading “A full day of reading, singing and walking”

Getting goosed

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Caroline. She has a welcome touch of spring in her garden already. Of course she is 350 miles south of us so it will take some time for spring to get up here at its alleged speed of 2mph. Even that seems a bit optimistic, as we don’tContinue reading “Getting goosed”

Six bridges!

Today’s guest picture is another stolen from contributions sent to me for the last camera club meeting. This is a view that Stan took when he was up a hill in the Ewes Valley. It shows just how flat and narrow the valley bottom is. Our spell of very mixed weather continued today, and itContinue reading “Six bridges!”
