Cooked up

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony in East Wemyss. It was a little bit warmer here today than yesterday, but as there was a chilly wind blowing, it didn’t feel much warmer. When Mrs Tootlepedal went off to combine coffee with buy out business, I was very happy, after a visit toContinue reading “Cooked up”

A little celebration

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who found a fine example of supportive crochet attached to a tree near his house. It turned out that a year had passed since my last birthday so I woke up today a year older (but not much wiser). The weather gods were in a benevolent moodContinue reading “A little celebration”

Work and a walk

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia. She found another impressive gate on a visit to Montacute House, which she describes as one of the most exquisite Renaissance buildings in the land. The forecast for the day had not been good but by the time that we had finished breakfast, it looked asContinue reading “Work and a walk”

More jam today

Today’s guest picture, and it was very welcome on a gloomy day in Langholm, came from my sister Mary who walked along the canal in London in lovely sunshine today. It didn’t rain all day here but it might as well have done because it was impossible to say when the rain was going toContinue reading “More jam today”

A good block

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who did some bird spotting in the centre of Derby today. It was another pretty dreich day here when we got up, and it wasn’t a great surprise considering some more overnight rain, that I found Mary Jo’s rain gauge pretty well full to the brim whenContinue reading “A good block”

Lace up

Today’s guest picture is another from Laura in Michigan. It shows St. Joseph Lighthouse, St. Joseph, 20 miles from where she lives. Her husband cycles there and back she tells me. It certainly looks worth visiting. We had a day without rain, wind or sun. Meteorologically it was a low scoring dull day. Mrs TootlepedalContinue reading “Lace up”

Through the window

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan. She thought that this food stall was very colourful. It doesn’t look as though it was doing much business though. After more rain during the night, we woke to a day that was intermittently rainy and a little chillier than recent days. It was too cold forContinue reading “Through the window”

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”

A bridge too far

Today’s guest picture is another from Tony’s Highland holiday. One of his dogs answered the question posed by a bench. We had another dry day here, cool when the sun was in, but pleasant enough for us to have coffee in the garden with Liz and Margaret, and actually warm when the sun came out.Continue reading “A bridge too far”
