Two sociable outings

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alistair. He took his daughter Matilda to Jupiter Artland near Edinburgh where she found a friend. I didn’t have time for any Archive Group work after breakfast today because I had arranged to meet my walking friend Mark to show him a route that he hadn’t taken before.Continue reading “Two sociable outings”

The treacle mine is working again

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone. He was in Eyemouth on the east coast to attend a BGA golf competition recently, and he found time to visit the harbour. Dropscone also found time today to make some treacle scones to bring round with him when he came for coffee this morning. His daughter has hadContinue reading “The treacle mine is working again”

Taken for a ride

Today’s guest picture is an interior from Venetia’s visit to the Roman villa at The Newt. They have made a thorough job of the building. I managed to stick to my plan and do some Archive Group work after breakfast. Then the crossword had to wait as we cycled up to the tree nursery onContinue reading “Taken for a ride”

Swanning about

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. They don’t just have sun in East Wemyss, they have red admiral butterflies too. We had plenty of sun here today, and as it didn’t get hot but stayed around 18°C all day, it was a very pleasant late summer day. Glancing out of the window atContinue reading “Swanning about”

Going green

Today’s guest picture comes from Sandy. He tried growing a wild flower bed beside his house this year, and he is very pleased with the result. We had another very hot day here, and the flowers are tending to get a bit tired . . . . . . as are the blackbirds. Once againContinue reading “Going green”

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”

Growing

Today’s guest picture is another fine dawn dog shot from sunny East Wemyss. Our son Tony gets up very early every working day. If I had got up early, I would have found a misty morning here, but the mist had cleared and it was another sunny day by the time that I emerged. MrsContinue reading “Growing”

Playing and walking

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Irving Bell. He got this fine view of Talla reservoir while on a motor tour. He advises me that I if I want to get the view too while pedalling, an electric bike would be a good idea as it involves a steep hill. We had aContinue reading “Playing and walking”

Flat out

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. It shows a dawn dog on the eternally sunny East Wemyss shore. It was three hours later before I got up after a good night’s sleep. I had to go to the health centre for a routine visit after breakfast, and I said to Mrs Tootlepedal asContinue reading “Flat out”

Well timed

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother’s outing to East Anglia. He visited the handsome church at Swaffham today. As far as the weather went, the day started well and gradually got worse as time went by. I took advantage of the sunny weather in the morning to mow the front lawn, edge bothContinue reading “Well timed”
