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”

Changeable

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who kindly forwarded this picture taken by his partner Marianne from her place of work this morning. Some workplaces have better views than others. I had to be up and about quite sharply today. The new lens for the Archive Group microfiche reader had arrived and IContinue reading “Changeable”

A short cut

Today’s guest picture comes from our neighbour, Liz. Needing a bit of brightness to enliven anther drab day here, I am happy to use this picture which she took when she walked up Warbla during our recent bright but chilly spell. I had a very quiet morning on a grey, chilly and windy day. IContinue reading “A short cut”

Cutting it fine

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony in East Wemyss. It shows once again that he is living in the sunshine capital of Scotland. But he still needed a fire on in the evening. It was a great deal of warmer in the house when we came down for breakfast today, and itContinue reading “Cutting it fine”

Singing and sunshine

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. At first glance, you may think that you can see many Santas in this festive shop display, but a closer examination will show multiple self portraits of the clever photographer. We had a much better day here today as far as the weather went. Although there wereContinue reading “Singing and sunshine”

A late walk

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He managed to take a very atmospheric picture as he crossed the River Derwent late on a misty afternoon recently. We had a marked change in the weather here today as we went back to a prolonged spell of rain. Luckily, not only did Margaret join usContinue reading “A late walk”

A riverside outing

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who was swanning around today. It seems to be getting a little hotter every day at the moment, and for a brief moment this afternoon, we touched 85°F (which is just under 30°C) according to our local weather station. This led to some rationing of how muchContinue reading “A riverside outing”

Stretching legs and fingers

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony’s Highland holiday. He has had some fine weather up there. I had quite a full day here today, though I allowed myself a gentle start. It was warm and cloudy when Dropscone came round for coffee (and scones) and Mrs Tootlepedal went off to have herContinue reading “Stretching legs and fingers”

A lovely day

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew and shows a suitably loyal bit of post box yarn bombing in Derby on the occasion of the royal jubilee. Just in time for the start of the meteorological summer, we got a warm and fine day. It was windier than we would have liked so IContinue reading “A lovely day”

Jam today

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He is on a short holiday and visited Tadcaster on his way to the coast at Scarborough today. We had another sunny day here, and it didn’t take too long for the temperature to warm up enough for me to be able to go out for aContinue reading “Jam today”
