The land of milk and honey sandwiches

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia, who saw these Somerset lambs practising their gambolling skills with great verve. We had a much improved day here today. There was no rain, plenty of sun, and a moderate wind. It was a day to get out and about and not sit indoors doing the crossword and drinkingContinue reading “The land of milk and honey sandwiches”

Mrs Tootlepedal is wiser

After yesterday’s gloomy weather, we woke to brilliant sunshine today. For once, I didn’t waste a lot of timeContinue reading “Up and down and round and round”

We had another fine day here after another cold morning. The temperature was low enough to putContinue reading “Strange objects”
