Keeping busy

Today’s guest picture is another from Alison and Mike Tinker’s New Zealand visit.  As well as bridges, they have flowers over there too. I try to keep off politics in this blog, but I cannot hide the fact that the English results of our general election were a disappointment to me and will lead usContinue reading “Keeping busy”

Sunshine and showers

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone who was alarmed to see some bears while he was out on a walk  in the town.  He calmed down when he noticed that there was a stout fence between them and him. It was a very unreliable day today as far as both the weather and the weatherContinue reading “Sunshine and showers”

Clubbing together

Today’s guest picture is another from Tony’s seaside views.  This one was taken on his phone. Today’s post may be a little more incoherent than usual because I had a restless night.  The forecast had been for cloudy skies so I went to bed without making any preparations to view the much talked about supermoon. Continue reading “Clubbing together”

A benchmark

Today’s guest picture is another from Joe and shows our daughter Annie crossing a bridge in the highlands when she came to it. I was anxious to make up for the defect in my spreadsheet calculations by having a 30 mile plus cycle ride today so I was pleased when I got up to findContinue reading “A benchmark”

Virtually English

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone’s archives.  For some reason he came upon the picture from 2004 of certain young(ish) golfers enjoying a break in Majorca to get away from Langholm’s winter weather.  It snowed and I still have the umbrella that I had to buy while we were there. I don’t know what theContinue reading “Virtually English”

Making use of some sunshine

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother Andrew’s recent encounter with the terrifying invaders of Derby. We had a really good sunny day today and with nothing on our calendar, I tried to make good use of it. The down side of a bright and sunny morning at this time of year is thatContinue reading “Making use of some sunshine”

Scones, scuttling around and singing

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony’s walk round the Wemyss Estate.  As well as a parakeet in a tree, he came across a curious deer which was looking a bit lost. We were visited by storm Diana today.  I must say that the practice of giving passing weather fronts a name isContinue reading “Scones, scuttling around and singing”

A song and a smile

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary.  She is getting out and about again after a hip operation and was able to enjoy the colour in Regents Park today. We had a very lovely sunny day today, though with the wind coming from the east, it was lovelier if you could find a shelteredContinue reading “A song and a smile”

2018 gets off on the right foot

Today’s guest picture comes from Irving who found a place without trees at Castle O’er.  Not an easy thing to do. After deciding a couple of days ago  that I wasn’t going to take part in the annual New Year’s Day “Whisky Run” because of the snowy conditions, I changed my mind entirely when theContinue reading “2018 gets off on the right foot”

Playing day

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary and shows Mr Grumpy’s London cousin trying (successfully) to outdo a work of art in the background in Hyde Park. There were touches of frost to be seen when I got up.  However, it was cheerfully sunny and the day got warmer as it went on.  ItContinue reading “Playing day”
