A pedal and a tootle

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He was in East Anglia when he spotted a rare instance of an Evergreeen container ship actually floating. The house was very quiet when I woke up, and it stayed quiet until Dropscone arrived for coffee and scones. He has just come back from travelling to theContinue reading “A pedal and a tootle”

All my own work

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He and my two oldest sisters are on an East Anglian jaunt, and were in Constable country today. We had a quiet and dry day today, which got pretty sunny and warm by the afternoon (70°F, 21°C). It took some time to warm up though, and itContinue reading “All my own work”

Business and pleasure

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone. He has been acting in an official capacity at an international junior golf tournament on the east coast. He got some fine weather for his duties. I had a rather dull time today on Archive Group business, making three trips up to the High Street to see people. OnContinue reading “Business and pleasure”

Testing the battery

Today guest picture comes from our younger son Alistair. He is on the west coast of Scotland at the moment and finds that the sun shines there too. The sun shone here all day. After breakfast, Mrs Tootlepedal went up to help staff a stall which the Tarras Valley Nature Reserve was running at theContinue reading “Testing the battery”

An excellent tootle

Today’s guest picture is a reminder of the sort of sunrise that you can see in East Wemyss if you are up and about at 5 A.M. Our son Tony was. Owing to a busy afternoon and evening, I am starting this post very late in the day, so the text may be a bitContinue reading “An excellent tootle”

Faith rewarded

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce. He was amused by the placing of this bollard, and wondered whether it was there for drivers or sailors. We had another sociable morning today, with both Sandy and Margaret coming round for coffee and conversation. When they had gone their separate ways, we got out intoContinue reading “Faith rewarded”

Scones, jam and cream

Today’s guest picture of these lovely roses comes from my brother Andrew. On a grey and occasionally rainy morning, Mrs Tootlepedal was hard at work soon after breakfast making scones. I rushed round to the shop and bought biscuits and a pot of double cream. The reason for this preparation? The imminent arrival of ourContinue reading “Scones, jam and cream”

Sunshine and song

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Caroline. She has just had a short holiday on the Isle of Wight, and found a sunny day to visit Ventnor Botanical Gardens. We had a warm day here, with a lot of excellent sunshine and light winds. It would have been the perfect day for a longContinue reading “Sunshine and song”

Scaling the heights

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alistair. As it was his daughter Matilda’s birthday today, he and she made a special cake. We had another sunny day here today as our spell of good weather continued. A good day was further brightened when Dropscone arrived for coffee. His scones were as good as ever.Continue reading “Scaling the heights”

A day at the races

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie. She is in Devon and enjoying some lovely spring colour. It was springlike here, with temperatures above the norm. I had a busy morning in an unspectacular way, visiting the shop and paying my account, getting money from the cash machine in the High Street, having coffeeContinue reading “A day at the races”
