Lots

Today’s picture comes from the “It’s a small world” category and was sent to me by my son Tony, who is on holiday in Menorca.  It shows a bus shelter poster there featuring the name of his sister’s partner among the writing team.  Not what he had expected. It was a day of lots ofContinue reading “Lots”

Flying visit

Today’s picture taken by Mrs Tootlepedal’s mother, shows our son, Al and his wife, Clare getting ready to drive back to Glasgow after a flying visit to have lunch and see Granny. It was another lovely day and I just had time to go round the morning run with Dropscone before getting ready to welcomeContinue reading “Flying visit”

Birds of a feather

Today’s picture is another sunrise, captured today by Dropscone on his way to supervise a golf event at Coldstream. It was a lovely day today, more like summer than autumn.  I didn’t go cycling which was a bit of a waste of the day but I was playing golf and there wasn’t enough time toContinue reading “Birds of a feather”

Head down

Today’s picture is another in the series from my sister Mary’s wanderings in and around London.  Here she is in sight of St Paul’s Cathedral. It was wet once again in the morning but Dropscone was in no state to pedal as he was visiting a physiotherapist in the afternoon so we settled on coffee. Continue reading “Head down”

Big news

Today’s picture shows the walnut tree bereft of leaves.  It is always the last to come into leaf and this year it has been the first to lose them too. After the excitement of fetching granny yesterday, there was a general lie in today.  We didn’t miss much, as it was another drizzly morning.  TheContinue reading “Big news”

The birds and the bees (but no cigarette tree)

Today’s picture, sent to me by my son Tony, shows the sunrise over Elie in Fife where he was up early to work. It was the last day of our short period of wonderful weather today and I did my best to make the most of it.  Mrs Tootlepedal had to work almost all dayContinue reading “The birds and the bees (but no cigarette tree)”

A full day

Today’s picture shows Glastonbury Tor.  It is another from the camera of my sister Mary, who was there recently. It was another warm and pleasant day today and Dropscone was back from his golfing work so we set off round the morning run in good spirits.  My spirits were raised by the fact that IContinue reading “A full day”

Up and away

Today’s picture is from Dropsocne.  He had to get up early to go to a golf competition yesterday (organising, not playing) and he caught this sunrise on the way to Kelso. He got up quite early again today and came round on his bike ready for the customary pedal.  I am still using the slowContinue reading “Up and away”

Gently does it

Today’s picture is another one from my sister Mary.  It is from Golders Hill Park.  This little park at the top of Hampstead Heath has both tennis courts and a good cafe.  I’m not surprised my sister was there. My back is far from well and Dropscone has been told to rest by his doctorContinue reading “Gently does it”

Winding down

Today’s picture shows the fine gates at Regent’s  Park in London. They are from another of my sister Mary’s walks. The storm that was the hurricane formerly know as Katia only gave us a glancing blow in the end.  Today was a much better day with a lot less rain and a slightly less ferociousContinue reading “Winding down”
