The end

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. It shows a member of his walking group wondering if there is a possible chance of a lift home. We had another chilly, grey morning here, with the temperature at three degrees when I got up for breakfast. Once again we were in no hurry to getContinue reading “The end”

A double whammy

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan. She came across this Antony Gormley figure in Winchester Cathedral on her recent visit. We woke to a beautiful sunny morning here. The price to pay for this was a temperature of 1°C when I got up. After a quick peek showed me that there was iceContinue reading “A double whammy”

Walking, cooking and tootling

Today’s guest picture comes from my Lancashire correspondent Paul. He crossed the border to Yorkshire to see this nice scene at Linton. We had another grey but mostly dry day here, after another night where the temperature didn’t drop very much at all. My legs have been quite busy over the past few days, soContinue reading “Walking, cooking and tootling”

In fluenza and out fluenza

Today’s guest picture comes from my Lancashire correspondent Paul. The shortage of heavy goods vehicle drivers must be hitting home if beer from Blackburn needs to be delivered to Burnsall, 38 miles away, like this. We had another dry, cool, grey morning here today. However, there was a welcome burst of sunshine in the afternoon.Continue reading “In fluenza and out fluenza”

A lot to do

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She was visiting the Tate Modern art gallery when she took this picture of the River Thames and a familiar landmark. Our unseasonable warm spell continued today, but with only very fleeting glimpses of sunshine. It is mostly quite grey, but as it didn’t rain, we didn’tContinue reading “A lot to do”

Going somewhere

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce and shows people having a row in Lossiemouth Harbour in the north east of Scotland. The optimistic forecast for better weather today proved to be quite correct, and we woke up to blue skies and bright sunshine. Life is rarely quite perfect though, and a temperature ofContinue reading “Going somewhere”

Going nowhere

Today’s guest picture is another from one of my brother Andrew’s walks. He knows that I like canal bridges. This one is on the Trent and Mersey canal. We had a day of rain here today . I wouldn’t say that it rained heavily all day, but when it wasn’t raining heavily, it was raining fairly heavily. ToContinue reading “Going nowhere”

A singsong Sunday

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She found a very nice day for a walk in the park earlier this week. We didn’t have a generally nice day here today, though it did have some sunny moments. The trouble was that when it wasn’t sunny, it tended to rain, sometimes, quite heavily. ItContinue reading “A singsong Sunday”

Back home

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He has been on a short holiday where among other things, he enjoyed the sight of this church perched on the very edge of Rutland Water. As we made our way back from Marlow to Langholm, we had a journey of many parts today. We started byContinue reading “Back home”

A walk in the woods

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother Andrew. He is on an outing with my sister Susan, and they visited Ickworth House near Bury St Edmunds today. We had some serious rain here over night. Luckily the rain had faded to a drizzle by the time that we got up, and it stopped completelyContinue reading “A walk in the woods”
