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”

Soup and biscuits

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Dropscone because he knows that I like bridges. It comes from his son Benjamin who is on holiday somewhere vaguely familiar. We had some heavy showers overnight, and we woke to a grey and often rainy morning. I found a dry moment to scoot round to theContinue reading “Soup and biscuits”

Party time

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend and neighbour Gavin. He was on North Uist today and was impressed by the amount of work two crofters had put in to provide their only source of heat for the coming year. We had a generally sunny but very windy day here, with some gusts making usContinue reading “Party time”

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”

Levelling up

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan. She took this peaceful canal scene today just to show the rest of her family that she had been out and about. The forecast was right, and it was a bit cooler today than the past two days. However, it was only a bit cooler, and asContinue reading “Levelling up”

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”

A dig, a jab and a doddle

Today’s guest picture is a good example of swanning about. My brother Andrew took the picture of the River Soar while visiting his son Nick who lives beside the river. We had a warmish, dry day here without the benefit of much sunshine, so it was quite annoying to hear the weather people on theContinue reading “A dig, a jab and a doddle”

Slightly flaky

Today’s guest picture comes from Langholm exile Tom. He sent it to me to show that the sun does not always shine in South Africa. It rains there too. It rained overnight here, but by morning it was dry and really quite chilly, though the temperature stayed above freezing. There were a few snowflakes inContinue reading “Slightly flaky”

A tootle but no pedal

Today’s guest picture was taken by Mrs Tootlepedal. It shows an artistic darn which she has made to fill a hole in the sleeve of one of my jerseys. She was feeling very creative at the time. I looked out of the window just before I went to bed last night, and was much struckContinue reading “A tootle but no pedal”
