Good timetabling

Today’s guest picture, from my ex-colleague Ada, shows a passing traveller whom she ran into (but not over)  on the road. The forecast said that it would start to rain at 3pm today and it was absolutely spot on which made it lucky that I had managed to get my day organised on that basis.Continue reading “Good timetabling”

A strange day – no rain at all

Today’s guest picture is the second from my brother’s visit to churches in Hull. I liked this colourful ceiling in Hull’s cathedral. It took me some time to really believe that it wasn’t going to rain today.  I had a bit of Archive business after breakfast to take my mind off the question and thenContinue reading “A strange day – no rain at all”

After the excitement of yesterday, we had a very calm domestic day today.  We did get out in theContinue reading “Life on a smaller scale”

A good start to the month

We had nearly as much sun here today but it was a lot cooler with a northerly breeze making sure that I hadContinue reading “Sunday song cycle”
