Foot and mouth or parking and parkin

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  With all that dog walking going on, the household wellies need somewhere to have a good rest when they get home. Our wintery weather continued with the temperature in low single figures all day.  We had been threatened with snow but got occasional sunny spells interrupted byContinue reading “Foot and mouth or parking and parkin”

ENT-ertainment

Today’s guest picture comes from ex-archive group member Ken, who now lives in the north east.  He spotted a mother gull teaching her children where food comes from if people are careless enough to overfill their bins. We had a dry, often sunny but breezy day today and I might have gone for a pedalContinue reading “ENT-ertainment”
