Getting a bit above myself

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia. She has been visiting The Newt again. Although my back is a lot better today and I got a good walk in, I am rather tired as a result of not sleeping very well over the past few nights, so this blog will be a bitContinue reading “Getting a bit above myself”

Mostly indoors

Today’s tall and thin guest picture comes from my sister Mary who passed this tall and thin pub a few days ago. My sister Susan had a meal in it last year and wrote about it in her post, which you can find here. We have had generally pretty poor weather since the start ofContinue reading “Mostly indoors”

Puffed out

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  He is taking an interest in wildlife now that he has moved to the country from the city and recently spotted and identified a yellowhammer. We had another grey and gloomy morning here and the memories of the fine summer months are slipping ever faster into oblivionContinue reading “Puffed out”

Going a couple of rounds with Ali

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent, Venetia.  Her cat brought in a most unexpected visitor not long ago.  Luckily it wasn’t an adder but a harmless grass snake and it survived. We were promised some rough and windy weather  from Storm Ali and we got some rough and windy weather with gusts betweenContinue reading “Going a couple of rounds with Ali”

Back in the old routine

Today’s guest picture comes from my neighbour Liz.  She enjoyed this misty view on one of her morning walks recently. There were no views at all when we woke up this morning, as the hills were shrouded in clouds and a fine drizzle was falling.  Luckily I had a stint in the Welcome to LangholmContinue reading “Back in the old routine”

The real thing

Today’s guest picture, sent to me by my Newcastle correspondent Fiona,  shows a selection of Newcastle bridges. We had another misty morning here followed by a glorious afternoon.   We will be praying for rain before we know where we are if this goes on. I started the day by putting a week of the newspaperContinue reading “The real thing”

Fairly fruitless walk

Today’s guest picture, from my brother’s camera, speaks for itself. There was little or no wind and the thermometer was showing a very stingy 4.5°C when Dropscone, Scott and I set out for a morning pedal to Gair and back after breakfast.   As a result, the start of our journey was shrouded in a clammyContinue reading “Fairly fruitless walk”

A shop and a cycle

Today’s guest picture is a giant head which my sister Mary encountered as part of an art fair in London. The forecast was very poor for the morning and Mrs Tootlepedal was out all day at an embroidery workshop so it it seemed like a good idea to take the opportunity to go shopping inContinue reading “A shop and a cycle”

An extra point

Today’s guest picture is another from my nephew Dan.  It shows the celebrated bapistery in Florence.  I don’t know how he got up so high to take it. Perhaps he was hang gliding.  Although it is probably disrespectful to say so about such a famous building, to a model railway enthusiast like myself its cleanContinue reading “An extra point”

Spiked

Today’s picture shows a blue tit on the fat ball fortress.  I took it at lunch time and no better bird shot presented itself the whole day in spite of (because of?) my shiny new feeder. Dropscone has taken the bike he has been riding lately to the bike shop for a service as heContinue reading “Spiked”
