Broken hearted

In contrast to yesterday’s Antiguan sun, today’s guest picture shows a typical day in Derby.  My brother Andrew was suffering in the rain there a couple of day ago. We had another very welcome dry day here today and things are even beginning to hint at drying out a little.  A bit more warmth wouldContinue reading “Broken hearted”

Tension

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s visit to Madeira and shows ‘Autonomia’, a monument to celebrate Madeira’s regional autonomy in 1976. It was another chilly but sunny morning here and it looked as though it might well be one of those days when a trip up a hill could be rewarded by some delightfullyContinue reading “Tension”

I felt remarkably well when I got up but was quite pleased to find it was a grey and drizzly day whichContinue reading “Taking it easy”

We woke to a perfect March morning.  The sun was out, the sky was blue, the frogs wereContinue reading “Sprung”

Today’s picture is yet another from my brother and shows Mt Taranaki, an imposing hill in NZ.  It is a pity that someone seems to have made off with the very top bit of it or it would be even more impressive. I had intended to go cycling with Dropscone after breakfast but continuing feeblenessContinue reading “Waiting”

All change again

Today’s picture shows a slightly uninviting opportunity to sit outside a pub on the river in Barnes.  My daughter Annie sent it and tells me that she didn’t sit out today.  Wimp. We had another day of mixed weather, starting with this… …but changing into this as the day went on. I went across theContinue reading “All change again”
